2 Corinthians 12:9-10 : "9But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 10That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
I have been released from the hospital and I am at my therapy home...aka mother's house. I got my first semi bath today. My engineering husband rigged me a seat in the bathtub with my broke part hanging over the edge. I then got to pour water over my head with a small cup. If you know me at all, you know I love a bath tub at night time and a shower in the morning. This is killing me...but I closed my eyes and pretended to be warm and was thankful for clean hair.
I have physical therapy exercises to do each day twice a day. It hurts. But I am so determined to walk, I know I have to do the work. My body occasionally goes into shock during exercises and just walking across the house causes my lips to quiver with pain. I use a rolling walker to walk. All the running I have done has helped my quads and thighs...now the walker is helping my biceps and stomach muscles. I am using muscles I have not used in a long time.
Depression hits me in waves. I have half of my house packed and moved. The rest of my house needs to be packed. And yet I am at neither of the 2 places pretending it will all work out. I have VBS in two weeks and I can't sit up for more then an hour. I have kids to entertain this summer and I can't drive or swim. So I pray...
