Hi everyone! I thought I would write an update for myself on this day that marks 2 years since the accident.
First off I am doing fantastic! 🙂 I am currently finishing up 2 online collage classes (finals this week) and I have been coaching for my high school debate program this last year. As far as physical healing goes: I am slowly improving. My left eye is still giving me double vision, but I am seeing an incredible doctor that believes surgery should be the last option. And every week my eye shows a little more movement.
Because of my optimistic personality it’s easy to think I don’t have any struggles, but this is far from the truth. Thinking about all the set backs that I have from this accident, can sometimes really put me down. But you know what keeps me going? Knowing that God has a plan and purpose for my trials. We tend to pray for things to go as we think is best and get sad or angry at God when it doesn’t happen that way. But we can’t see the big picture. I may never know exactly why I was in the accident but I do know that the Lord has a greater, master plan in store. Because I can’t see the big picture I have faith in my God and he gives me the strength to press through the trials.
He is the reason I’m optimistic. His love keeps a smile on my face.
