Thanks giving day 11/22/12 post from shane

Today is thanks giving and just like any other day its a time to give thanks.  I have an abundance of things to be greatful for more than I ever have before.  I am so greatful for life.  The fact that God gave me another chance at living I have no choice but to give my life to Jesus.  I reflect on my accident daily knowing that there is no possible way I could of made it out of that vehicle with out the grace and hand of God who pulled me out of that car.  Praise you lord!  Its is evident that God wasn’t ready for me yet and has big plans for my life.  I am so greatful for all the friends and family that have been supporting me and praying for me.  This is going to be a tough journey but I truly believe God wont’t give me anything I cant handle.  Therapy has been going really well I have a hard time taking things slow.  When my therpist Erin gives me a challenge I just jump right in and want to conquer it.  I should be going home in the next couple of weeks.  I’m excited to get out of Gaylord and be home to start my new life.  If you think I’m gonna let this injury keep me down and hold me back you better think again!  I know that one day I’m going to walk again, God willing.  Its a long road to recovery but im already getting some muscle connection back in my legs.  Through this accident I know that my patience will be greater than they ever have been before.  This is Gods time and I pray that his will be done.  

Today is a day to give thanks just like everyday we are granted.  Through my journey so far its made me relize how greatful I am for the little things.  Going 35 days with out a shower and about 40 days or so with out water (because of my trach I was on a nectar thick consistancey of liquid) It’s helped me to understand just how greatful I really am for the small everyday things that often are taken for granit.  

Thank you to all who have been lifting my name up in prayer.   I’m so blessed to have the support that I have.  I ask you to pray for healing and that one day the lord will allow me to walk this earth again.  I yearn to be able to teach my children to kick a soccer ball or ride a bike, if god blesses me with children and a wife one day.  

I hope everyone has a great thanks giving we all have so much to be greatful for!!!

Lots of love,  Shane
