After I was diagnosed last year I prayed for many things. I prayed that I would be able to walk and talk at least through the summer and then I realized that I was selling myself short so I quickly reneged on that prayer and set my sights a little higher. I asked God to let me walk and talk until the end of the year and so far He has answered those prayers.
One thing I could never bring myself to pray for was to be healed. I’m not sure why I couldn’t ask God for healing but in my heart it felt selfish when so many others needed that miracle much more than I.
Today I am thankful for all of you and for the love you have shared with me and with my family. I am also thankful that I reneged on my first prayer and set my sights a little higher because I feel very lucky to still be walking and talking.
