The past is very important and when it comes to the past medical history such as these stories, it is important we know our past medical history and we can learn and improve our present with knowing about the past.
We cannot be afraid of asking questions. Don’t wait to hear what you think you want to hear, ask lots of questions now and keep journals if at all possible and put them somewhere for your family to find after you leave.
We may not understand why any of our mothers did some of the things which they did, but back then; why they kept secrets is beyond me? It can be very detrimental to us all and for lack of knowledge we will surely will perish and it would seem to me a big reason why so many lives are being lost as such young ages.
This is just my opinion but it only takes common sense to realize why some things happened in the 1950’s.
We can learn so much from all of the mistakes made and the next generation will learn from our mistakes, but somebody has to be the leader and break the vicious cycles we live in right now today!
I guess that is why today we are stressing how important questions like are you pregnant before a doctor even writes a prescription out to you. It is up to us to be truthful and make sure we know these things because when we don’t, we harm innocent lives, our babies and they have to live with our mistakes for the rest of their lives.
I am a product of man’s mistakes and my mother kept close when she went to the doctors and I think she did this because she knew this child of hers would ask questions, therefore, I would do something with this information one day. My mother was right and I am here to let you know that God blessed me to be the first born child, a female, born with degenerative disease and by being the first born I was truly blessed so I got to share my story about how God works.
By me being the first born and a girl I truly do believe made a miracle child. Being the first I had the same blood factor as my mom and any child after that born with her same blood factor did not live, but I was saved by being first!
Now, don’t quote me but I do know this much and I am alive to tell you what my mom experienced and why she lost babies but I am here and ready to share my story.
The blood tells a lot about us and do your homework and find out how important giving blood is also and how it can help with our own health and especially if we are born with diseases. We are the candidates to help others who have diseases and who need blood!
Isn’t God good? Now, I consider myself a miracle baby because God chose me to be born in the 1950’s when many strange things were occurring and I just happened to read a lot and here I am writing to you.
There were so many blessed children born during the 1950’s who were born with crippling diseases who have great testimonies and just take a look at how blessed you really are.
A good book to read is Gerad Kite’s “Everything You Need You Have” on how to be at home in yourself.
There is a key sentence at the beginning of this book by psychotherapist and practitioner of five-element acupuncture Gerad Kite. He asks, ‘How often do you stop, and look inwards and find yourself content with what’s here and now? And how often do you hear someone else doing that: simply relishing the joy of the present?’ This important book guides you to find your own answers to living well with yourself.
When you have faith in God anything is possible. It may not happen at once, but rest assure God never forgets us and I got a testimony of how and what He can and will do! I got a testimony and I owe it all to Him.
