It's going to be one of those days...

About 3 years ago my sister lost a foot to mrsa, complicated by her diabetes. Today she'll lost the 3 remaining toes on her other foot. Part of the reason she moved here was to be close to family, her health really is fragile and she has a 7 year old son.
My sister has showed me so many ways to be courageous and keep hanging on. Her trials are a huge part of the reason I exercise every day and try to eat right.
I feel like God is walking with her this week. She took Evan, her son, to my parents house on Saturday so he could attend a Halloween party over fall break. She had no idea she'd be having surgery today. Now Evan won't have to see his Mom in the burn and wound unit. I'm so grateful there is such a place, but it's not a place for children...
I hope everyone reading this takes time to be grateful for their good health. Then understands how blessed we each are if we are able to exercise.
The same day we found out my sister needs surgery, we found out my brother is finished with his cancer treatments and doing well. Thank goodness my sister will soon be infection free.
Thank you Sparkies, for helping me stay strong and able to do what needs done.
