My New Goal

For Junior year I want to set a goal for myself of walking into high school. I just want that experience of walking into high school. It is something that people take for granted, but for me it is a huge thing. Since the beginning of freshman year, I have used my electric wheelchair. Only walking around the classroom due to not being able to walk long distances. Even at the Baby Bulldog Breakfast for freshman-thatwas held before school started-I was in a wheelchair.

I want to set a goal, as far as strengthening goes for my next knee surgery. My next knee surgery will hopefully be next summer, after my half shoulder replacement surgery this summer. I want to do everything to heal properly and strengthen my knee to get to my goal. My goal is to be in the chair for the summer and the beginning of school. Although, after 4 months after school starts I would like to walk in with a walker. For me that is a huge experience. I will be praying for what God has in store. I will pray for strength in going through that process.

Walking is something all of us take for granted. When that is taken away or limited, you really realize how much you miss it and how wonderful it is. I want to experience walking into high school. Whether it be just walking in using a walker, walking in and then getting back in the chair, or walking in and not using anything I don’t care. Even if I have to wait until the end of the year or until Senior year, I will be thankful to walk into school because walking is a gift. So next time you see someone using a wheelchair, using crutches, using a walker, or anything else don’t give them a weird look. Wonder what it’s like to be in their shoes, offer to help them, or even open a door for them.

The necrosis, the steroids and chemotherapy caused, has temporarily taken away walking from me. I may be able to walk short distances, but I walk with pain almost every day, whether the pain is a 1 or a 10. It has taken my ability to take a hike, walk around the block, and so much more. I will not let it defeat me or get me down! I will rise up and work towards making those few steps into high school, into the grocery store, into the mall, around the block, etc.!

 

What a Blessed Week!

Hello guys! I want to share with you my week. Although, I wasn’t feeling well one day, the rest of the week was great. God was with me all week as I commuted to school; I was having some problems with motion sickness. I enjoy school and learning new things. I am so thankful that I have the ¬†opportunity to go to school and have the joy of learning. My teachers are so sweet and supportive. I love my school and can’t wait to see what Sophomore year holds for me next school year.

Today Was a Great Day!

I am so thankful to God for waking me up today! I have been battling my sinus’ and because of them I haven’t been feeling well. It gives me really bad headaches from the presser on my forehead and stuffy nose/runny nose. In general, when I’ve woken up these past weeks I have not been feeling well. I thank God though, for giving me the strength to get through today. He is ultimately my strength, and I lean on him when I feel weak. Remember, God will always be there when you need him. He is with through each step of each day.

Today was a wonderful day, I enjoyed school! I am thankful that He gives me the strength to persevere through each and every day! May God be with you each and every day! May you have the strength to call on Him when you need Him. Thank Him for all He does! Have faith that He will carry you through!

Freshman in High School!

I am officially a freshman in high school! My first two weeks of school were amazing! My teachers are so amazing and kind.

The classes I take Geometry Honors, Biology Honors, Study Skills and English Honors. I believe honors classes challenge you more and I can keep up and learn new things. I also take Spanish 1, Choir Beg. (also known as Glee Club), Fashion 1 (I love creating and picking fashion styles that fit my personality) and History of Pop Music.

I have made lots of new friends and have seen some people I went to school with the previous year and someone from church. At first, I was nervous about starting high school because it’s a totally new thing. New layout, new people, and it is a lot bigger than middle school.

This year I refuse to let Cancer take over my ability to be in school and learning! I want to and will attend school for the whole year with minimal days missed. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me this school year! 11870668_457018801152320_390110079936171129_n
