Metaphor For Life

How time flies! It was one year ago that I started my blog- ASKAUNTYGRACE Which provided a platform for anyone who had issues to write to me at because I believe that a problem shared is a problem halved.
I’m glad I was able to help some of you who wrote in (like the young lady who said she finally found the direction to go from an initially confused mental and emotional state!
Well the blog is going to take a new shape. I will be writing about life experiences so share your experiences with me! I will also welcome interactive comments so at the end of my piece, please post your comment ( and feel free to agree or disagree- and don’t worry, your identity will be kept private.)
One day you are happy and everything is going on well then suddenly- BAM- your life comes crumbling around you!
In my own case, I was strutting around thinking everything was perfect when suddenly I collapsed and my poor traumatized kids saw their “super mummy” slipping away before their eyes!
When my daughter took me to the hospital ER, I was admitted and that began the most harrowing two weeks of  my life BECAUSE the doctors couldn’t figure out at first what was wrong as all the tests kept coming back negative for infection and yet I was having fevers at night and I became very anaemic!
Anyway, lying on my hospital bed, I realized how such near death situations help you to reassess your life and re prioritize your priorities!
And what did this LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE do for me? Well, one thing is for sure- never before have I been so forcefully reminded of the importance of God in my life!
The doctors can only do so much but the ultimate healing comes from God. Never before have I prayed so hard nor have friends who formed themselves into “prayer warriors” for my sake!
I also realized the importance of family – good family – and I discovered that perhaps the greatest and most precious gifts God gave me are the gift of my daughter and son!
My daughter was with me All the time and quickly became the auxiliary nurse par excellence!! I doubt that I would have survived without her help , care and love so selflessly given.
I learnt NOT to rely on help from other human beings because they will disappoint you but God will send you helpers from the most unexpected sources or how else will you know they are from the Almighty Father?
Am I a changed person now- oh yes!
My priorities have changed,
My level of gratitude to God is considerably elevated and I take nothing for granted!
I cherish and love my kids to death and I’ve also taken time to take stock of WHO and WHAT IS or Not important in my life.
Oh- and I’m calmer now knowing God’s got my back!
So here s my advice – when you wake up in the morning, thank God for the gift of life for another day!
So as we celebrate valentine’s Day and the first year anniversary of Askauntygrace, this is wishing you all, a life full of love.
Aunty Grace
