Thoughts from a brain injured mom…

I wrote this two years ago but the sentiments are still the same. 💚

Mother’s Day is upon us now and this Mother’s Day I’m feeling so blessed and THANKFUL to be mom to four beautiful kids.

They are MY heros today and every day.

The months I was in bed, healing from this injury, my two oldest cooked my meals, their meals and my husband’s meals. They made sure I had fresh water by my bedside, medicines, and snacks. They did all the chores, fed the animals, washed dishes, and kept up with their schoolwork.

Sometimes they got discouraged but God kept them strong.

Now I’m able to do all those chores again, with a little help, of course.

Still, they don’t have a mom who can take them out to play at parks, and get ice cream, and do fun things anymore. (Daddy does that.) They don’t have someone who can go on long adventures like we could before. Someone who is strong and full of energy.

But they are loved!! They are happy. We spend time cuddling and giggling about silly things. We laugh at ourselves and find the humor in everything. We can read each others thoughts and finish each others sentences (sandwiches). We play movie line guessing games and read out loud together. They do plays and skits for me which make us all laugh until we cry. We aren’t the normal busy American family going places and doing fun things constantly but we have so much more because we have love and togetherness and that’s TRULY all we really need anyways.

Baby Steps

Hello my beautiful blogging family. I pray you are all well and safe. 🤗😷

I’m continuing to slowly heal. The pace of healing is not anywhere near what I would like it to be, however I am seeing positive signs and focusing on them instead.

I guess it’s the walking that’s gotten me down both literally and emotionally. My legs feel very sluggish and they hurt. They don’t want to move much or else my whole body trembles. It’s going to take TIME as my Dr. informs me which is the challenge.

In God’s good timing, I’m just going to have to take baby steps and allow my nervous system to rejuvinate and heal slowly.

I’m praying for patience. This road is very windy with lots of bumps and potholes and yet with our God all things are possible.

He is near. He is good and He is in control.

Much love,

Viv 🤗
