Busy but Thankful

Dear friends,

I am so sorry I haven’t been reading your blogs and making comments. I have been in and out of the hospital twice in the last two weeks, and yet God has filled me with strength. I can’t say I’ve been joyful through it all, but I sure am thankful it wasn’t worse. For those of you that don’t write blogs but follow mine, I appreciate so much your kind words, encouragement, and abiding friendship.

I started one of the last two classes I have to complete to get my Bachelors Degree. I’ve been working on this degree for many years now – but not since my injury occurred. I was too afraid of failing! So far things are going pretty well but I’m scrambling to keep up!

I can’t wait to catch up with all of you very soon.

Terri

 

About Terri Nida

In August 2013, I fainted in my kitchen and woke up paralyzed from the shoulders down. I am still trying to make sense of all this, but one thing I know is that God is with me and he loves me.

  11. Terri, So sorry to hear you have been sick. But so glad you are better and going back to school. That’s great! I went back and finished my degree in my late 40s. I was more determined and focused the second time around. Good luck – you can do it!
