SP Live Blog - 5 Things I like about myself

Thursday, August 09, 2012

1 - I like that I am a glass half full person. Whatever happens I can find the upside to it - usually with a sense of humor. Things could always be worse so I am always grateful things go as well as they do.
2 - I like my green eyes. There really isn't much I like physically about myself right now, except that I am basically healthy and making the climb back from being really, really sick. My eyes never look lumpy in an outfit I want to wear. They're never too tight to be comfortable! Always my friend, always seeing the good in people and situations. They had a scare when I was sick and lost my vision but they didn't let me down - they came back strong as ever. And when they did the view of this beautiful world was sweeter than ever.
3 I like that my faith is unshakable. It is the thread that is woven throughout the fabric that is my life. I worked for 35 years as a Respiratory Therapist and witnessed some tragic, unthinkable things over those years. I worked primarily Trauma, ICU and Critical Care - both adults and infants. There are often things that you don't understand. What got me through all of that is the belief that God knows best. What looks like a horrible tragedy may in fact be God's way of sparing that person from something even worse down the road. By taking them early and suddenly, He spares them that end. I felt that way as well when I came home from working a night shift and found my husband dead. You have to trust God.
4 I like that I have some very close long time friends. I'm there for them and they are for me.
5 I like that I am committed to working with my church and Family Promise to make the lives of homeless families with children better.
That's about it for my list.

    There is obviously much more beauty to you than just your eyes. My green eyes are just a little teary after reading your blog.
