Oct 20: I got rear ended. I have to order police reports, answer question after question from both insurance companies involved, make arrangements for my car to be fixed, find a personal injury attorney, go to the chiropractor, make sure my grands get to the chiropractor and more. All that on top of everything else that is going on in life. I am thankful to God that I woke up this morning.
Oct 30: I suffered a vitreous detachment in my right eye. I was walking through my lamp lit bedroom at night when I began seeing white lightning streaks in my right eye vision. If you Google specific symptoms for just about anything, you can usually come away knowing that you are getting ready to die, get your affairs in order. It seems they always have worst case scenarios at the top of the search. I also saw things like retinal detachment, which can damage sight. I made an appointment the next morning with an ophthalmologist. Multiple tests, eyes dilated, with a final diagnosis of the common, not sight threatening condition of vitreous detachment. The symptoms (white streaks and increases floaters during the day) should disappear within two weeks to six months. I am thankful to God that I can still see.
Nov 4: our son and daughter in law share the joyous news that they are expecting another child! and I took the burden of worry on myself wondering how they would afford a fourth child, where would they live? They have are currently in an apartment and their 2 year old sleeps in their bedroom due to lack of space. I am thankful to God that that is not my problem to fix, that HeE cares about them more than I do, and he will provide for them. I don’t have to.
Nov. 5: After a windstorm we have more roofing damage to take care of and found a malnourished, pretty beat up cat under our patio furniture. if he lives, we will name him/her Storm. I thank God that we still have a roof over our head, and that he will provide the money for the repairs.
My emotional cup is overflowing. So many things I want to fix, and can’t seem to. So much in my life seems out of my control. Cleansing tears erupt over and over. Again, I thank God that he is in control. I don’t understand his ways, but I want to go back to childlike faith.
