Yes friends, it’s been a while. Much has happened since I last posted– the good, the bad, and the ugly. It all happened at the same time if you can believe that. On November 15th (an uber gorgeous day may I add), while I was out with Matt scouting a location for my next shoot, the unthinkable happened. I stumbled off a huuuge, gigantor of a hill, oh alright, it’s a little slope. No clue what really happened (although I tell our church friends that Matt pushed me). All I remember was at one point I was up and in a blink of an eye I was down. I wish I could say that only my ego was hurt but noooooo, I had to go down BIG! I broke my foot– the fourth metatarsal on my left foot to be exact, and yes, it hurt.
I think it’s obvious what the bad and the ugly are but you’re probably wondering what good this has done me. To make it short, I know that God allowed it for many reasons. For one, I was never able to call the blazing event of last year a trial but this broken foot has been one of my biggest trials ever– strange how the smaller events in our lives can have the biggest impact. I hope that in the end I will have learned to rely less on my own strength which is pride, more compassion for others who are indisposed, and more patient in all aspects of my life. Not gonna lie, this has not been fun, but I know and trust that God has a plan and it is ALL good.
I am slowly trying to get back to work. Although my foot seems to get better daily, the boot is still a close companion. I’m thankful to the Lord that this happened after my wedding season was over, see, that’s another good thing!
Consider yourself updated. Thanks for your patience as I’m trying to take things slowly, one step at a time (pun is intended) )) Blessings!
