“Workin’ too hard can give you
A heart attackackackackackack
You oughta know by now”
~ Billy Joel, Movin’ Out
Six years ago this morning I had a massive heart attack that ended one part of my life, but actually started me on a new journey. Many may not believe this, but I give thanks every day for this journey God has selected for me.
There was NO pain, NO discomfort, I simply collapsed out of my desk chair at home, smacked my face hard on the desk on the way to kiss the floor. The last thing I remeber seeing was Picture 45 ….. which you can read about HERE.
For me, today is a day of inner peace. A lot like I remember I was that morning when the paramedics carried me out of the house and what I can remember about the subsequent heart cath and admission to the hospital. I was at peace. The angels were there, protecting me, comforting me.
Not so much from my family that had a totally different vantage point. It was the period of EXTREME angst, EXTREME worry, a complete lack of sleep, nutrition and a period that they will NEVER forget. So, today has a totally different meaning for them, and NOT in a good way. I do feel bad that my family had to go through all of that, but maybe that was God’s plan for them too?
I look back and remember, and I will never forget. It was not my plan, it was what it was!!
Everything happens for a reason!
