8/3/2012 – It’s been quite some time since I’ve felt like I had a post worth posting. Until today, I was feeling like I was repeating myself with all the little miracles that were passing through my days. I know it’s wrong I didn’t feel them “worthy” of mention, and quite honestly it was a combination of laziness and depression. It’s not that I wasn’t grateful for the gentle reminders of the daily miracles all around me; it was more a case of needing answers, praying for some miracles to come to fruition and a lot of personal junk going on in my life, that I might have been feeling a bit overwhelmed and wanting to be able to report a miracle of all miracles.
Now, today, I was reminded, it is in those little moments the important things become clearer. As I checked into my continuing education class, I went and picked a seat by the door where sunshine was filtering in through the curtain. It was just enough heat to keep the chill of the air conditioning from being quite so uncomfortable. Just a few minutes after I got settled in, I looked across the room at the entrance and I saw a lady pass through the door and head straight over to my table. She introduced herself, “I’m Betty. I’m so glad I got here, I thought I was going to be lost. That would not have been good.”
We shook hands and I smiled and told her my name and asked where she was coming from. She said she is originally from Columbia, South America, but lives here in Chicago now. I found her to be immediately enchanting and as we looked over the itinery, I told her I was looking forward to learning what it had to offer. She seemed to know exactly what question to ask to find out my history. Throughout the day, she asked tons of questions that were more pointedly directed to my condition than any of the therapist I have seen to date. She also did a technique on me that immediately improved my pain level, and she taught me how to do it myself, and the exercises to strengthen the surrounding muscles to keep it in place. Along with that, she was a big advocate to get the presenter to “check me out”, which came to be at the end of the afternoon.
Between being the demo person for the class and my new friend Betty, I can honestly say, I have not felt this good in 19 months!! Do you know all the things that had to come together to bring this all together?? Lets just list a few: I had to find the information about the class through an online search for CEUs; It had to be a topic I wanted to learn; I had decide to take the class over the same weekend as my parents sale; I had to register and pay for it and then get a hotel I could afford; we had to get to Schaumburg even though our car was acting up. Today, the way Betty found me, I have NO doubt, she was sent from God. As she left today, she said she had been praying all day to get out early enough to make it to a very special church service they were having at her church tonight, and we got out earlier enough for her to make it!!
Today has been a very Miracle affirming day. There has been a complete sense of peace even amongst me having been put on “display” (which is usually very uncomfortable for me). I’m much more comfortable being the one on the other side, trying to help others feel better. It was awesome being able to accept their assistance without uneasiness and a total gratefulness.
These are my Miracles for this the 3rd day of August, 2012. God Bless, Te
