I truly believe many events our lives are Life Lessons from God. It might be a small lesson, or it could be a knock you upside the head lesson.
I guess you could say, my recent medical events have made me recognize these Life Lessons from God. As a good blogger, I'd like to spell out these simple yet important Life Lessons.
My family was beyond amazing during all this crap. From Sister #2 driving me to the ER in Oct; to my dad staying up all night to give me pain pills. Let me stress I could not have recovered so quickly from 2 ER visits and 2 surgeries without my family. They made me strong.
You would think these fantastic people in my life would never be put on the back burner, but sometimes I put them there. Life Lesson from God #1 is that my family does not belong on the back burner.
2. Pay Attention
Everyone is busy. You are busy raising your children, working two jobs, or training for a killer marathon. I do not argue that anyone is not busy; especially during the holidays. However, if you take extra second to check on someone who's ill it makes a world of difference. I am horrible on checking on people who are ill or just had surgery. I'm going to partly blame Facebook. It's easy to Like someone's recovery post. Heck, I just Liked one of Khloe Kardashian's post on FB. But that's what God called us to do, he wants us to make a connection with people. Life Lesson from God #2 is checking up on people.
I'm thankful for these Life Lessons. I plan to make more of an effort on becoming a better person, and a better friend.
