A Fun Thing For April Fools Day

Hey,everyone!Katy,over at The Country Blossom posted today about this,so I though I would join in the fun too!
Here are 5 unusual facts about me:
1.I was in a terrible car accident when I was 17.I lost 4 front teeth.I had to have braces after that to re-align my jaw pls several surgerys before I got permanent implants.I got my senior class pictures taken 2 weeks after the accident and you couldn`t even tell there was anything wrong.I`ll have to post the pics sometime!
2.I can touch my tongue to my nose.
3.I am 32 years old and I do not drive.
4.My husband and I met at a hotel/resteraunt.I was a waitress there and he was a manager.So he was actually my boss!Lol.
5.We were engaged to be married after only dating two months!
So there you have it.Five unusual facts about myself.I don`t know how unusual some of them are,but never the less they are still facts!Lol!If anyone is interested,you can join in on the fun also!Just let me know,so I can go to your blog and read what you wrote about!!
For any of you who remembered my doctors appointment was supposed to be for today.Hubby asked me to reschedual though because he got no sleep last night.I was very upset,because this appointment was very important,but it`s not his fault.It`s so hard having to depend on other people for everything:/ So,now I have to waite until April 23rd.God knows,and I know he`s going to make sure everything is okay!
You guys,while I`m on the subject I had an amazing thing happen to me this week.It wasn`t only an answer to prayer,but a true miracle!!!Because of the nature of the subject I couldn`t share it in mixed company,like standing up in church or anything,but I wanted to.Some of you may know that the condition I have causes my cycles to last sometimes for weeks at a time.That was the reason for the transfusions in August.If you have been reading my blog,you all know that the doctor put me on birth control pills to regulate my cycles.There was some confusion and I had to go off of the pills.I thought for sure I would end up having more problems.Well,for the first time in years my cycles were completely normal!!I have been leaning on the Lord throughout all of this and I can`t help but think of that story somewhere in the Gospels about the woman who bled for 7 years and touched the coat of Jesus hoping for a healing and He turned to her and said,because of your faith you are healed:)This experience has been truly amazing!!If anybody is reading this that doesn`t believe in miracles,they do happen!So anyway,I just wanted to share that with all of you!
I hope all of you have a super day!!!!

Katy,
Thanks for commenting!As for the driving thig...Ijust never got my licence.I was suposed to get it when I turned 18 but that was after the accident,so I had alot of issues because of that.I realized tat you could actually be killed in a vehical,so that really frighteneed me and hindered the learning process.I even had a car.It was a black mustang.So nice!!I just couldn`t grasp the concept that the cars in the other lane were not going to hit me.
Now,I think if I attempted it again,with Gods help I know I could overcome that fear!Due to my husbands injury,I may have to get my licence soon.
Secondly,isn`t that such an awesome answer tp prayer!!God is amazing!!The grace he has shone to my family is more amazing than anything I could of ever imagined!

I'm so glad you've had an improvement. What an answer to prayer. Maybe the delayed appointment is a way of giving you more time to show that things have settled down.

I had a simular experiance when i was thirteen. I wasn't injured, but i didn't want to learn to drive either. I took drivers ed a year late becuase i was so nervous, and the only reason i did take it was becuase my dad told me i had to. =p He ended up buying me a car to try to get me excited about it. Luckily i have been fine since, but i still get nervous when i ride with some one i don't know well. *hugs*

That is really great about your cycles! God is amazing and its so wonderful to hear how he is working in other peoples lives. Whats even nicer is hearing people give him credit for the good in there lives! That makes me happy!
