A New Start

Have you ever been in a situation where you were unable to do something for yourself and someone came into your life and helped you?  It is the best feeling in the world, isn’t it?  When you are at your lowest point in life, to have someone give you their hand in time of need is beyond a powerful blessing.

I have been extremely blessed and fortunate to have a wonderful caring son, friends, physicians, nurses and home health care. Someone who has given me particular encouragement in physical therapy said good-bye to me a few days ago.  It was a sad, heartfelt parting as we do not know if our paths will meet again. We will no longer be in each others daily life.  By going the extra mile in compassion of her skilled job, our sessions were all about, “We are in this together.”  She boosted my confidence to help my painful, sore muscles make slight movement.  Short periods of time were spent with her instructing the simplest of bed exercises for movement. From going to doing one movement to doing a repetition of movements during several months. With tears of pain and endurance we accomplished much more than exercises, we accomplished a trusted friendship.  Sometimes all you need is someone next to you that truly cares, to guide your thoughts of determination to a level of extreme confidence of I can and will be able to do this! No matter how many tears fall from the pain, I can do this!

This week I start with a new physical therapist for re-evaluation.  I am sure she will also provide me inspiration, with levels of achievement in body strength being gained for victory.

My post today is to thank my former physical therapist for going beyond her job description.  Her soul cared for me from her heart strings.  She has been one of the best assets since October to me.  I thank her from the bottom of my heart. May God bless her life with seen and unseen blessings. Some how, some where, I believe our paths will meet again!

Happy 2015 everyone!   May this year give us all added boosts of confidence, good health and love. With new paths – new starts on this walk of life with thankfulness and gratefulness in all of our hearts. It is a new day, a new year … bring it on!

Until next time with more Sweet Conclusions,
