Remembering ….. Change

I must have been sound a sleep the day I drove past this sign on the "road of life".

I must have been sound a sleep the day I drove past this sign on the “road of life”.

Six years ago today a journey came to an abrupt end. At the end of that day six years ago, I had NO idea that I would never go back to work. Nor did I know that the next morning I would start on a new journey.

I guess my life’s plans were not God’s plans for me!

Am I sad I never was able to go back to work? I used to be a bit sad, but I am long over that. I had over thirty-eight years … good years, productive years, happy years with the company that employed me and it had been a good ride.

I’m happy and eternally grateful that God saw fit to give me not only another chance at life, but also a chance to help others on their journey.

Fortunately for me, I usually accepted change and adapted well ….. My last day of work was 4/27/2007 …. 14 days later, on May 11,2007, I had a new heart beating in my chest …… so, if you want to talk about change, my heart transplant was a massive change.

This quote became my mantra during recovery –

“The beauty of life is, while we can’t undo what is done, we can see it, understand it, learn from it and accept CHANGE.”
