I would like to thank everyone for the kind and heart felt birthday wishes today here on facebook, text messages, snaps, birthday cards, and the nurses who got me cupcakes and sang to me today while I got my transfusion. You all made my day extra special!
This is not where I expected to be in my life at 29. But sometimes our plans in life are not God’s plans. It is hard sometimes not knowing what my future holds. But I do know I will celebrate another birthday and that I will be healthy again.
We have to accept that plans change. Life happens. We need to adapt and move on. We need to trust in God and his plan for us. Although being sick is not what I had planned for the end of 2016 and the start of 2017 I know he is guiding me to a better life. I just have to open my eyes and my heart to him.
Although being sick isn’t easy in the slightest on myself or my family. I feel that I have been blessed with an amazing opportunity to get to know myself better. I get to build my relationship with my family and with God in a whole new way. And I get to see the world with new eyes and hopefully help others like me or those who may know someone like me.
So thank you to everyone who has made today special for me. And remember as I have said so many times before…..
