RANDOM THOUGHTS

IT’S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I’VE WRITTEN, BUT I’VE BEEN BUSY TRAVELLING, & I COMPILED & ORGANIZED A LESSON TO TEACH AT CHURCH, & I GOT A NEW COMPUTER, & I’VE TRIED 2 SPEND MORE TIME WITH MY FAMILY. I HAVE BEEN KEEPING NOTES, HOWEVER, THEY ARE VERY RANDOM…

–ON OCT. 17, RIGHT B4 WE LEFT ON OUR 2ND TRIP, I HAD MY 1ST VISIT ALONE IN ALMOST 10 YEARS (SINCE MY STROKE) W/SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T SPEAK ASL! I’M ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT BEING ALONE, BUT I WAS WILLING 2 TRY W/THIS FRIEND, CUZ SHE HAS ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD ME WELL! & SHE WAS OVER FOR LIKE 30 MINUTES! I HAVE ANOTHER FRIEND I’VEMOSTLY TALKED TO, BUT SHE KNOWS MY ASL, SO IT’S DIFFERENT!
HOWEVER, TYPING THINGS OUT OFTEN HELPS ME, FOR SOME REASON. I CAN START TYPING, REALIZE I’M MISSING WORDS & “FILL IN” OR NOTICE THAT THINGS WOULD MAKE MORE SENSE IF I RE-ARRANGE SENTENCES, ETC. SO, SOMETIMES I AM THANKFUL FOR GOD BEING MERCIFUL TAKING AWAY MY VOICE! LOL. AS I GET BETTER AT SPEAKING, I AM REMINDED OF SOME OF THOSE “BLESSINGS IN DISGUISE!” (I.E I’M TERRIBLE AT PRONOUNCING WORDS, BUT WHO CARES NOW?).

–WHEN WE FLEW, I WAS IN MY TRAVEL POWER W/C (WHICH IS LIGHTER & COLLAPSES). IN MY TRAVEL W/C, IF I SNEEZED, THERE WAS NO VELCRO AROUND MY LEFT WRIST TO HOLD ME BACK, SO I FLUNG 4WARD, DOUBLING IN ½, W/MY LEFT ARM JUST DRAPPED IN FRONT, & I HAD 2 SIT MYSELF UP, & PUT MY LEFT ARM BACK UP ON MY ARMREST.
AFTER DOING THIS FOR ABOUT 4 DAYS, I WAS SO SICK OF IT! A FEW TIMES I HAD NO MORE AB STRENGTH TO PUSH MYSELF TO SIT BACK UP, BUT NO1 WAS THERE. BUT I HAD NO BELL, LIKE I DO AT HOME, & WHILE THE CHAIR HAS A HORN ON IT, I COULDN’T TURN ON MY CHAIR 2 SOUND THE HORN. & I COULDN’T YELL. SO I PRAYED. I’VE ALWAYS KNOWN PRAYER WORKS. I CAN SHARE SO MANY WAYS TTHAT MY OWN & OTHER PEOPLE’S PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED. BUT THIS TIME, I WANT TO SHARE THIS 1: LUCKILY GOD WOULD HEAR ME & ANSWERED QUICKLY–I WOULD GET JUST ENOUGH STRENGTH 2 CLUMSILY SIT UP, OR I’D GET AN IDEA 2 HELP ME SIT UP ALONE.

–IN OCTOBER, I WAS CONSTANTLY REMINDED THAT GOD SEES WHERE WE ARE WEAK, & PLACES PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES THAT CAN STRENGTHEN & HELP US, & FOR ME, ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE HAPPENS TO BE MY HUSBAND! HIS PRESENCE IS A DAILY REMINDER FOR ME OF JUST HOW MUCH GOD LOVES ME!
