A Good Reminder
As I sit here lying in bed, I gaze out my bedroom window at this view. I am amazed at how quickly things have gone from grey to green. To such bright and beautiful color.
The door bell rings. There is a delivery.
Next to my bed sit these gorgeous flowers. I wish you could smell them. The roses are huge. They are the biggest roses I have ever seen. They come with a message. A loving reminder:
"I just wanted you to have something right by your bed side or couch side in the days to come to remind you of how great our God really is. Yeah we have had things taken from us with this illness, but things gained all the same. We just have to be open to seeing them. The flowers will remind you of life. Color. Spring. Happiness. Friendship!"
If it weren't for this illness....... I would have never met Miss J. As you can see from my adventure post and this one, not getting to know and meet Miss J would be a terrible thing not to experience. I am grateful that God brought us together. Dare I say, I am grateful for the things I am learning and experiencing through this illness........ I am humbled and grateful...........
