Hi guys! It's the wee hour of the morning here in my sleepy little town! I slept most of my day away yesterday! I truly wasn't feeling myself and I have learned over the year the importance of truly listening to my body!
As hard as that can can be ... I do realize I am not the same person I was when I went into surgery for a simple knee surgery.
I am not mad or bitter!
I am blessed and grateful for each and everyday. No matter how hard or easy!
I do want to celebrate the milestones of thing I have accomplished with the help of my heavenly Daddy! That is actually one of my new year's resolutions!
It's important to celebrate even the smallest things. Because at the end of the day the small things make the big things!
So back in the spring when I had to be in the hospital for 23 days. It affected my muscles. I came home I needed my wheelchair and added a walker to my daily routine.
I went through physical therapy and they implemented several changes to our home! Especially my bathroom. I required a shower chair because I could not and still unable to stand unsupported for long periods of time and stay steady.
Because I needed the walker all the time at that point. They had to remove my bathroom door so it would pass freely.
I was so upset for all the changes seem to have came so fast. As the months passed some things began to improve.
All though things are not like they were. They have improved! I am over the moon excited to celebrate that I was able to have my bathroom door rehung!!! On most days I don't require my walker inside the house! I only use it when I am going to dress up. By that I mean putting makeup on and truly fixing my hair! I only use it then to set on! So it actually can stay in the bathroom.
So my sweet hubby rehung my door! I won't lie, I cried big tears of joy!
I thanked my Daddy for the milestones of independence!
I know things will never be as they once were but I can celebrate the good new things that happen.
Who knew how important a single door could be and how much joy it would bring?
Just because a illness has changed my life. I want to choose joy over bitterness and take back the things I can and accept the things I can not and celebrate the new me!
All the beauty that comes from that!
I hope you will join in and celebrate with me!
I can not wait to share more moments of celebration no matter how big or small! Now and the upcoming new year!
Love and Prayers .... Shellie
