Miss Independent

I can't let a whole week go by and not post anything! Shameful. But I do have good reason. Now don't get too excited people. The truth is.....I've hardly been home at all!!!! Do you know what that means? It means that I feel good enough (or is it well enough?) to be out in the real world. For like several days in.a.row!!!!!!! The only thing I need is help getting in the car still. I am so close to being able to do it all by myself. I'm a big girl now! Pardon my immaturity. I'm feeling a tad bit on the strange side tonight.

Anyway, I had the best time driving in my van all by my lonesome! I haven't had that in such a long time. I had several errands to do where I didn't have to get out of the car. As I was driving I realized I had the radio all to myself! That like never happens. And I sure hope you are sitting down because I need to tell you who I listened to. NO! It wasn't Donny. I warned you! I put on Chris Daughtry. And I turned on the volume as loud as it would go! TeeHee!!! And I sang and sang. My head swayed back and forth to the music. I clutched my heart when it was a sad song. I even got out a lighter and held it high in the air. Okay, that was a bit much. Went too far.

It's nice to start feeling like I have a little independence. The stronger my right leg gets the sooner I won't need any help getting in the car. But I must be patient. And I will be. Look how far I've come from the beginning of the year!

You already know one of my very favorite verses, but let's say it all together, shall we?

Philippians 4:13 "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me."

So true.

What a happy, inspiring and uplifiting post, Amy! Your delight at becoming more independent and self-sufficient shines through all these words.

You know what? I STILL think Chris should have won American Idol. I rooted for him until the very end and am still shocked he was voted off. He's just amazing.

This was fun, fun, fun to read. Congratulations on spending all those days in a row out in the world, all by yourself, rather than indoors sitting behind a computer. LOL

My Bloglines has been full and overflowing with all the blogs I haven't read in the last few days, but I've been obsessed with finishing my mom's Christmas present. I say all that to explain why I'm just now getting around to Wheeeeeeeeeeing at your great news!

I'm so happy for you getting to get out and go, go, go! I KNOW what that feels like -- it's euphoric, isn't it?

Keep up the good work! :)
