It took me almost three long years to get to this point. I'm a shoe lover, after having the stroke, I could only wear tennis shoes with my leg brace, no matter if it is a dress or pants.
So I kept my shoes, collecting dust In a corner of the closet, with the hopes that they will be walking some day.
This past weekend, Art & I were cleaning the closet, and I saw the rack full of shoes in a corner.
I put all those pairs in a bag to donate to the NW assistant ministries ( I wish we had a DI) except a couple pairs I really like.
But honestly, for me, it was more than just attempting to have a clean closet, it was more of accepting my NEW NORMAL, I'm not saying that I no longer feel like working towards getting closer to who I was, but I'm accepting who I am.
I still don't know why I had a stroke, but I have my trust very strongly put in the Lords love.
I think Elder Hollands talk really got me.
