Today Is Tuesday. You Know What That Means
Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means....
or do you?
It has been a long time.
Perhaps you have forgotten what Tuesday means.
Perhaps you think that Tuesday simply means it is the day after Monday.
Perhaps you think Tuesday means is is the day before Wednesday,
Perhaps Tuesday is laundry day, errand day, cleaning, shopping, or playing day.
Perhaps you think Tuesday is just another day of the week.
You actually DO know what Tuesday Means.
Perhaps you woke up this morning and smiled with delight because you couldn't help think that....
Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means.
We're gonna have a special guest!
SO put on your ears.
Like good Mouseketeers
TUESDAY IS GUEST STAR DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This surgery that I am recovering from has taken its toll on me. There have been times I have regretted doing it. I have felt completely helpless/hopeless. I have been angry, anxious, afraid, in pain, frustrated, childish, depressed, bored, impatient and so many other things.
God taught me a new word through all of this. It is PATIENCE. It is not a word I have been familiar with and quite honestly, it is not a word I am crazy about. Patience, Patience, Patience. Say it aloud a few times and see how ridiculous it sounds. well, to me anyway. "Ah, the Lord works in mysterious ways". Yeah, Yeah, I know.
You see, I am beginning to feel better now, (Thank you God). But this is where that ridiculous word comes in. I feel like I can do so much more but if I do the things I want to do (you know, hard things like bending over and picking a pencil up off of the floor), I could do severe damage and end up in the hospital again. PATIENCE. I am SO ready to remove this turtle shell and run a marathon (ok, I never did that before but who knows), or even curl up on the sofa. PATIENCE.
The bottom line is, that if I remember this word, PATIENCE, and abide by the rules (which takes PATIENCE) I have a strong feeling that I am going to be a new woman. Although I am in pain, I think it is surgery/incision pain. I think the original pain is gone. That's right, you heard me...gone. Sure there will be achy days but at 46 years old, that is bound to happen anyway.
So I need your prayers now. For PATIENCE (a ridiculous sounding word), but necessary, none-the less.
I AM going to be the woman I am supposed to be. I have been in pain for close to 20 years. I am not getting my hopes up too high. I know there will be good and bad days. But I also know that I am going to be so much better.
I am Strong!
I am Invincible!
Well, I think Helen Reddy can tell you better than I can.
So welcome Helen Reddy as today's Special Guest.
Cause Tuesday is Guest Star Day!!!!!
