Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.They are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness.
Some of you may already be aware that last Sunday I was involved in a rather horrific car accident.By God's grace I made it out alive,which feels great! However, at present I'm still in recovery and under doctors orders (and for other reasons) I'm unable to type/read for extensive amounts of time. I've made massive progress since Sunday and things are looking up. As soon as I'm 100% I'll be back (with a vengeance).
Thanks to all of you that heard and reached out to myself and my family. I feel so overwhelmed by the sheer amount of love. This experience has been emotionally exhausting and I feel like I've lived ten years in five days. But what's kept me going is the support and encouragement from so many people.
Thank you for all the tweets, facebook messages and emails especially from those of you I've never met yet have sent really supportive messages. God bless you all!havoc on the internet. Today was the first day I felt like 'me', I laughed from my belly and realised that everything is going to be just fine. Hence me finally mustering up the courage to write this post.
I'd like to make a special mention to my family. My Mum and Dad, for making me fight and giving me hope. My sisters for keeping me peaceful and making me eat! All my aunties, uncles, cousins and church members who have rallied around me these past few days. All of you have been so amazing. I couldn't have done it without you. Words cannot express my gratitude. And to everyone that has prayed, I thank you. I've never felt so much positive energy in my life.
To ALL my friends who have checked up on me at every moment.You know who you are. Thank you. I know for a fact without your encouragement, support and lovely cakes I would not have made this much progress in the last few days. And to my closest friends that visited on the day of the accident and made me celebrate my birthday in a rather unorthodox manner. I love you.
Sidebar: I think next year we're going to have to have two parties to make up for this year!
Ultimately, I'd like to give all thanks to God without whom I certainly wouldn't be writing this post. Despite how far he seems, Sunday showed me that he is always there and turns up right when we need him.
I'm looking forward to being back to my normal self and wrecking
Life goes on and this incident will not determine the trajectory of my life. A few weeks ago I wrote..
"The outcome of the situation is not defined by the scale of the tragedy, but pivots on the response of the afflicted individual"
I had no idea I would have to live those words so soon! Alas, such is life. Right now my focus is on getting better, so I can then pour all this energy into making my dreams come true : )
Anyway! Enough mushiness. I'll be back within a fortnight. It's frustrating not being able to express myself as I wish but I'm glad it won't be long before I'll be doing what I love.
By the way, if you want final proof that I'm a confirmed shopaholic, apparently before I was loaded into the ambulance I screamed at the firefighters 'GET ME MY SHOES. GET ME MY SHOES. THEY'RE VERY EXPENSIVE.I NEED THOSE SHOES'. Bewildered, the firefighter obliged my request and retrieved them from the wreckage. If I wasn't even more determined to marry Trey Songz I would marry him as a thank you : )
Love and Light
p.s Bandages ruin outfits.This whole experience has given me the (rather genius) idea of starting a range of customised bandages, eye patches & plasters. I reckon I could be on to something!
