Enjoying Life :-)

Just sitting here celebrating the goodness of the Lord. Man, He is so good - I can't even form the words to express just how Good He is! Wow, all I can do is just laugh and laugh, as my heart is just full of praise, WOW!!  Makes me want to dance, makes me want to shout, makes me want to jump - IT'S ALRIGHT AND IT IS GOOD!!  Even with all the craziness (and they are ENDLESS, LOL!!!) I am just sitting back and thanking God, concentraing on the good! It just changes your perspective man - YUP!

Miata continues to make progress with her recovery - and we celebrate all the "firsts" out of the hospital! The other day we went on our first shopping "trip" to the mall (bought a couple of jeans as nothing fits - what a problem to have, right? LOL). Yesterday was the first time she walked into dialysis (as oppossed to using the wheelchair - yup there are long winding tunnels at the U).  The staff there cheered for her as she walked in - LOL! And today, after outpatient therapy she has her "first" real hair appointment, Yes! Hmm, maybe she will agree for me to post a picture - hahaha!  We'll see.  

So instead of focussing on the challenges, disappointments, diagnoses, etc we choose to focus on the good, and we celebrate these times in our way.  And yes, her crazy sense of humor (very dry) shows up as she laughs at some of the situations.  

For right now we are just enjoying life and choosing to focus on the good (Phillipians 4:8) - I am learning from her . 

More to come....
