Keep calm and hold on to God!!

Hello friends, for this new year, instead of saying keep calm and carry on, my saying is keep calm and hold on to God!

I know you guys who read my blog know that in June I suffered a T.I.A in other words a mini stroke, they believe it was brought on by stress and nerves! Then on December 5 I took a tumble from my attic...ouch....
But what you don't know is that lately I have been feeling sorry for myself telling myself that if it wasn't for bad luck I have no luck at all! We all know that saying right! But when I said this in my mind I was talking to God...yeap I always speak to him..please don't think I'm nuts.....but any who I felt like he answered me, first of all he made it clear that I survived my mini stroke because he was beside me the entire time I was struggling to get better, no matter how mini the stroke was, it's like your body took a beaten and your still trying to put the pieces of your life back together, your mind and thinking change, well at least for me it did, I still am not able to remember what happened to me, all I know I awoke in a hospital!! It's scary to say the least.
Then second I fall from my attic suffering an injured ankle, now we all know it could have been a disaster! Well I know it cause my lord made it clear he was there with me the entire time, I believe he was there to cushion my fall! So in his words I'm a very bless and lucky lady, so my saying is keep calm and hold on to God ;-)

How did I miss your having a TIA...I had no idea! I'd feel sorry for myself too! Goodness you don't have time for all of this, your a busy girl!! I hate that you don't quite feel like yourself, but give it time. It sounds like your attitude is great and that goes a LONGWAY, good for you!

PS: I talk to God too!

Dearest Mari,
We often neglect at first certain things that happened to us; for a reason. And yes, sure we talk to our Creator oftentimes as he really does exist; yet his entire plan for us is unknown to ourselves. It takes time for such a T.I.A. to heal and you should never give up. Things will get better with practice, like you have been thrown way back and have to crawl back to where you were before; only harder to do this the second time around, not learning as a child and easy.
You are very clever in bringing this up to share; that too will help you in your healing and your immediate circle of friends will understand what is going on.
We all lack the time often to support each other fully. But here we are, trickling in one by one to be there for you and with a big virtual hug you will mend!
Often we feel abandoned by certain people whom we trusted, according to their sweet talk but they vanish in a hurry. That too is life and often it hurts more than any other injury.
It makes us stronger and the soul is always there, near our Creator and our special Angels in whom I too believe so steadfast.
Wishing you a better 2014 with more luck and eat healthy girl.

Mari, I was on my summer long break when this happened with the mini stroke and I did not know. I am so sorry you have had such a rough patch. But I know these challenges with health and healing have made you strong. God will see you through and you have every right to go through the process in any way you can. If that means feeling blue for yourself, well that's okay. It will pass and you have to feel what you do to get to that place. It means you are human and feeling the effects. God knows this and will be with you no matter what. My prayers for healing and better days will be with you. You show courage and grace and inspiring to all.

Much love to you always my friend.
