On the road again!

Not to be confused with the ‘roids’ again, although I am being weened off them. I am talkin’ back on the road driving cars again. I just drove for the first time since May. Oh, what a feeling! Thought we would play it safe and just drive to the shops and back to get bread and milk and the mission was a success! I am not really needing a car at the moment but at least I know I can drive if the need arises. Fantabulous!
I am back into routine now also. I have my radiotherapy early in the morning, catch the bus to the city which takes about 20 mins, and I have been working full days so far. It is so good to be back into a routine after months of not knowing how each day is going to pan out when I wake up. There is a surreal realisation that take place, at numerous times in the day, when I am in awe of how good it is just to be.

Attitude

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. “Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today.” So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. “H-M-M, ” she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today.” So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. “Well,” she said, “Today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.” So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head. “YEAH!” she exclaimed, “I don’t have to fix my hair today!”

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Hi Cam and Liz,
‘Met’ you on the radio tonight when part of your ‘unfair’ blog was read. It was a new perspective that I found inspiring. Thank you for the idea – that life is unfair in blessings too, not just in suffering.
I’ve been doing the blog thing too (not as regular as you) but for a long while now. It is good to share your faith and struggles, helps when you can put your thoughts into words and you might as well share it.

I pray that your medical tharapy is totally successful.
May God bless you and heal you.

I thought a lot about healing when I was caring for my Dad with melanoma, and wrote a bit about it in May… “I absolutely believe that God miraculously heals, despite our own weakness or lack of faith. Look what happened to the guy who said to Jesus, “Lord, I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” We do not fail because we have not prayed hard enough or long enough. Our prayers are acceptable to Him. God is sovereign and just.”
