Continuation of my Story ....

Are you ready for the next installment of the continuing saga of my life as I know it right now? Ok let's begin ... this is a story of another major change in my life and quite unexpected I might add. Seems to me 2012 is proving to be a year of the unexpected events. Life can be a surprising journey and difficult one all at the same time time. But I am learning things are working together for my good. But I am getting ahead of myself. As I previously mentioned I had joined the Brain Aneurysm Foundation where I met many wonderful people from around the world. It's like having one giant support group right from the comfort of your home. There is always someone online, lots of medical  information about aneurysms and recovery process  and best of all people's stories about their journeys. There are many stories:  of successful surgeries, loved ones losing their family members to an aneurysm that has ruptured and/or a series of complications during or following surgery. 

I thought it very interesting how many people ask for prayer support and many respond by stating they would be praying for them. Other survivors encouraging people like myself who are waiting for surgery etc.  No matter where you are in your journey there is someone there for you to listen to your fears, concerns and /or celebrate a successful procedure. Family members of survivors also have a place on this site to talk about how they feel on their journey as they walk along side their loved ones. 


  1. God wasn't the problem: people were, from what you say. And you will get nasty people whatever denomination who use their faith as some kind of ' get out of jail' card, using it as some kind of shield to get away with being nasty.
    God is much simpler, and much nicer. He made us: he accepts us and he is there for us (or she, whatever you want to call God ;-)

    1. You are definitely correct G, God wasn't the problem, it was me, as I blamed Him for allowing "those" people to hurt me. This of course wasn't right on my part, I see that now. I have turned back to God and re-dedicated my life to Him almost a month ago now. I know I have been forgiven and things are good between us as He is a loving and forgiving God. I am so grateful to Him. ~J~
