I am back (for the moment)

Ok ya'll I am sick of being ignored just because I don't feel up to writting, so I thought I'd try something different. I just recently started all my online classes since I am layed up at my mom's house, now with two bumm knees. 2 religion classes, which is so not what I really want to do. Even though God may smite me I am going to say this; I do not believe in an all knowing all caring God (or whoever might be up there). Lets see first I was struck with so damn unknown genetic disease that I had a one in three million chance of getting, then I fall and completly tear my right ACL surgery on that three days before my 23rd birthday, then I broke my right ankle so bad that it required surgery to reset it had a plate and 8 screws put in (still in more than 2 years later). I final,ly got to go back to school HOORAY the University of Wyoming halfway throught my first semester there I fell and thought I blew out my left knee (swelled like I had a softball on top of my knee) and thought I also broke my foot. Finally I got through my first semester there, Christmas time. Then again in Febuay weeks into the semester I fell and broke my left leg IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER. Got through my summer classes with ease no bones broken no falls no ligaments tore. I started fall of '05 great I thought to myself "Great this is my year it will be great," oh how I was mistaken. The day before halloween I was taking out the trash and fell tried to get up and my knee was jello, I was so scared, had I blown out my knee again I know I definatly needed another surgery. Went to my doctor later that week to have confermed what I knew; another surgery three days before Christmas. I finished out my semester hobbling around trying not to baby my knee too bad. Then low and behold a week before surgery I was packing and fell yet again this time forming a 90% angle with my left leg towards the outside, tearing the MCL in my left knee DAMNIT I CAN'T CATCH A BREAK. Now we are up to date I have had surgery on my right knee again and we are just waiting to see if my MCL heals itself. There is my crazy history of the past three years, I dare anyone to try and top that.

I know this isn't my usual story but I needed to get it out, sorry if I borad some of you to tears.

Is there any other way to live life than to enjoy it?? As I said before I was having a bad day when I wrote that, I was complaining because that is what I do when I have a bad day. I can't complain too loadly I am still here. I smile all day everyday and I try to not let my difficulties get me too down on myself.

"Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fiber of character but strengthen it. Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before." James Buckham.

Christ was spat upon, cursed, whipped with a cat of nine tails, beaten, had his beard pulled out, had His hands and feet pierced by nails into a wooden cross and hung there to die, then a spear was put into His side.
: )
But I know, you don't believe.
"When a man gets to despair he knows that all his thinking will never get him out. He will only get out by the sheer creative effort of God. Consequently he is in the right attitude to receive from God that which he cannot gain for himself.

Get well.
