Back Home ..
After 5 weeks I am back home. Thank you to my amazing sister in law and nephew for being on stand by for when we received the good news that I was able to go home! She planned it all on the whim. She made it all happen and I will forever be grateful for her. Thank you Ashley for everything you have done from the beginning to the end. I was able to see those party lights at the end of the tunnel.
It’s been an emotional roller coaster and a huge test of my faith. Although the staff at the place I had to call home for a bit were great, nothing beats being surrounded by family to include all 4 pets.
Words can’t even express the amount of love I have felt from family, friends and even neighbors/ people I have never met before. Even at the lowest time in our life and questioning why us, only God knew the plan. He knew the people to place into our lives. It was absolutely incredible.
If you have been following me then you know that my family has been through some trying times. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more challenging it did. They say that God only gives you what you can handle. … I can’t lie, but I was so pissed. I just couldn’t even believe all the things that were happening. After I had asked for prayers for my family and friends, that is when I was reminded of what HE was doing. I had to stop everything and pray. My family was put into yet another situation that would test our faith and commitment. It would test just how strong we really are. After the tribe we have never met put all their faith into God and shared prayers from afar, I saw what I needed to see. I saw what was in front of me all along. HE was. The prayers worked as they always do. I just needed a strong reminder. It hit me right in the face.
I am not perfect and never will be. I just know that I will forever be grateful for what he has given me. From strangers to my family from all over stopping to pray with me and for me to my own family trying to stick together and staying strong. It has been a path diverted. Now I am home and will continue to try and be grateful for my blessings. We have a long road ahead BUT we are together and that is what matters.
Thank you to all those who have been there through the most difficult times. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement and positivity. HE put you all in my life for a reason and it saved me.
We have a long way to go but I know that if I continue to keep my heart and faith open, that it can and will be ok. Never give up. Don’t feel sorry for yourself. Do good and be good. I wasn’t sure how I was going to survive all of this but I did. Even when I want to be mad at him, he is there and that is what I need to focus on. He will keep saving you over and over as long as you let him.
One day at a time. We are alive and safe. We can do this.
