Blessing in disguise!

I woke up, on November 30, 2020, with my alarm blaring. Five o’clock a.m. seems early when you’re retired. However, as usual, I had lots of plans for the day. I needed to be at my sisters home by 6;00 a.m. to bathe and get her ready for the day. My husband recently had back surgery. I told him I would be home by 7:30 make him breakfast. As I drove home from my sister’s that morning, my mind was filled with thoughts of how much I enjoyed helping her and the great conversations that we would have.

As I pulled into my garage it brought me back to my plan to decorate the house for Christmas. Yes, that was my plan for the day! What I had not planned for, was falling and shattering my wrist. Even when the unexpected happens and it throws a curveball your way. God is good. His blessings outweigh any troubles that you may incur. Even though Gary could not twist, bend, reach, or lift, And I could not use my right arm. We knew that God would take care of us. God faithfully blessed us more than we could imagine. All our needs were met, cooking, cleaning, laundry, yard work, and chauffeured to doctor appointments. We were humbled to have our entire family work very hard to ensure we got the best of care. Thank you, Lord, for our loving family.

Friends, may God bless you and your family in good times and through difficult times. Let the love of God strengthen the cords that bind your family together. God bless 🙏
