Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

Maureen Pratt Author PicAll the efforts to standardize healthcare can be very confounding for those of us with chronic illness. We oh, so often don’t fit into the neat little codes and pigeon-holes developed by others, and we frequently find ourselves beyond frustrated with trying to explain complex situations to healthcare workers who expect everything and everyone to fit into those “neat little codes.”

Today’s TLC Tuesday is meant to remind each of us that we are different, we are distinct – and it’s all right! In fact, it reflects God’s love for each of us; He called each of us by name, knew each of us before we were born. God does not have a list of codes into which each of us fits, in a group, neatly and scientifically.

The difference in you is what makes you wonderfully you! It enables you to bring your difference to make a difference (if everyone were the same, there’d be no hope of getting beyond those limitations). It enables you to express love, bring joy, and mend broken hearts.

Today, embrace that wonderful you – and the next time you feel frustrated by someone who expects you to follow the herd, take strength in knowing how beautiful and unique you are – because you are made by God!

Joy and peace,

Maureen
