Giving Thanks to the Lord for Good Test Results and Looking Forward to Getting Back to Life and Reality

Day 180 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project was one spent having procedures to determine why I’ve been so sick for the past month and giving thanks to the Lord for good test results! Now I’m looking forward to getting back to life and reality. And while the doctor’s orders were that today be a lazy day, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who have read about my medical challenges/Ds and reached out with well wishes and prayers. You readers are part of my resilience strategy and the blog has helped me bounce back. Both have played a role in me getting better because I didn’t want to renege on my promise to post daily (I did miss a few…). Nor did I want to lose those of you who have been kind enough to stick with me while I’ve been sick, even if you were sick of hearing about it!

As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Cygnet, I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired! So while I’m thankful for today’s test results and hopeful the rest of them will come back good, I’m ready for a new day. I’m not 100%, but I’m laying claim to the verse in a song I used to teach in Kids Club:

And now let the sick say I am healed

Because of what the Lord has done for us!

That being the case, tomorrow, I plan to get back to life and back to reality. Completing revisions for my debut novel, Seasons of Her Soul in order for it to be released in January, focusing on my business, including rescheduling and scheduling coaching sessions, returning to Zumba and starting to teach (yes!), and planning for my next workshops are only a few of the things while I was down. Excited as I am about all that, being able to get out and about to post pictures to accompany what content I hope you love is what motivates me. That and glorifying  the Lord to whom I owe, and give, so much thanks.

Give Thanks to the Lord pumpkins flank front porch stairs.                                                         Not only are they pretty and welcoming, they remind others to have grateful hearts.

What situation have you come through, medical, personal, professional or otherwise, for which you are thankful? How can you be savvy & chic on purpose about expressing that thanks?

    1. Hi, Carla! Yes, God is good! Being so sick was scary, but I’ve learned from the experience and will be more mindful of what I’m putting into my body. When I was cleared to eat after a day on clear liquid diet, I was so hungry! My hubby took me to a wonderful Greek restaurant with the Best Fries Ever! I refrained and substituted with an authentic Greek salad – no lettuce, just chopped veggies! So good and now a favorite. Did have a Gyro though! Moderation…😊 You’ve been so supportive through my journey and I feel I’ve made a blogging friend. Another thing for which I’m thankful. Blessings. 🙏🏽💕

  1. It is good to hear you are on the mend. Sharing your journey send courage to others that we can be saavy and chic when dealing with adversity. Often when I am at my lowest battle strength, God gently reminds me to remember He is there to get me through, if I would just ask. We don’t need to go it alone. Thank your hubby for me for his TLC. See you soon!

    1. Hello, Natalie. I’ve missed seeing you! I appreciate your comment and letting me know how sharing can encourage and inspire others, which is my mission. At times it’s a little scary to be so transparent and I wonder if I’m providing TMI, then I get a response like yours and know it’s what I’m supposed to do. And yes, His strength is definitely made perfect in our weakness. So we should ask! My hubby has been amazing. Thankful for him. I’ll pass along your message. See you soon and blessings. : )
