Once again, no matter what happens in my life...my dear family and friends rally around to support me, how can you ever say thanks enough for that? I may have a body that can't hold together more than 5 minutes at a time, but I truly believe I am one of the richest women in the world... to have such a great family and hundreds of BEST FRIENDS. So I will try not to be too discouraged by this recent set back and try to find out what I need to learn from all of it.
Today was my MRI, before I even left this morning I cried in the shower of just the thought of going back into that arena of Doctors, MRI's and all of that stuff. I know that I am lucky if this is all that is wrong with my knees but... still I was struggling just to go today. It was a long process, hard on my back to lay that long...but 3 hours later I was heading home. We won't get the results back until Monday or Tuesday and then we know more information and what decisions we have to make.
I have to say like always, I met incredible people along the way. The tech and other workers were amazing and had such a positive and sweet spirit about them. I was grateful for their compassion and kindness, it eased my fears some. I am always amazed at how many wonderful people there are in the world. Too bad that media doesn't focus on them and all the good they do, verses all the mean ones and all the terrible choices they make. It sure would make me more apt to turn on my television if they did.
So once again we wait for results and have FAITH that everything will work out the way it is suppose to. In the meantime, I will keep reading stories like the one....( my sister-in-law sent me) and remember to try and find the good in every situation around me. Thank you for your kindness, love and prayers.
This is an amazing story!
This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 2 legs -
He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.
His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was thinking of 'putting him to sleep'.
But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him.
She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself..
She named him 'Faith'.
In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement.
Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward
for him for standing up and jumping around.
Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk.
Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle,
Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward.
After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.
Faith loves to walk around now.
No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him.
He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and
has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.
There is now a book entitled 'With a Little Faith' being published about him.
He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.
His present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching post and plans to take him around the world
to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul'.
In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better
you just need to look at life from another direction.
I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone
and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.
Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.
"FAITH MAKES ALL THINGS POSSIBLE...LOVE MAKES ALL THINGS EASY."
"FAMILY MEANS TOO MUCH, FRIENDS ARE TOO VALUABLE, AND LIFE IS TOO SHORT, TO PUT-OFF SHARING WITH PEOPLE, HOW MUCH THEY REALLY MEAN TO YOU, AND PURSUING WHATEVER IT IS THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY."
