Great people are blessings from God
To the editor:
The blessings from God are so numerous no one could count them. Ninety-nine percent of them we take for granted or we are completely unaware of them.
I have multiple sclerosis, and this has caused me to become acutely aware of how much I need God every day.
Oct. 10 I was made aware of just how much God daily walks with me. That day my best friend and I went to Curves, as we try to do at least three times a week. While exercising, my legs quit working, and I started experiencing sharp pain in my chest. This is one of the many ways MS attacks.
As I started falling, God had placed Tina Seay at my side. She gently lowered me to the floor against the wall. Tina is a wonderful person, and she also works at Curves.
During this, someone called 911; my wonderful husband, Roger; and Carrie Fell Maddox, owner of Curves and a nurse. I was later told all the other ladies at Curves gathered around and began asking God, the Great Physician, for his intervention into my dilemma.
Russellville Fire Department arrived very quickly. Brandon, a firefighter/paramedic, began checking my vital signs and soon injected an IV. He kept talking to me and just trying to keep me alert. He was just awesome in his profession.
Soon the ambulance arrived and transported me to Helen Keller Hospital.
God had created a great medical team to be there helping me and working together.
With my MS, I know there will be other attacks. I thank God for all the great people he brought to my side and for blessing me so greatly at this time.
I know God knows exactly when and where future attacks will occur. My God will help me through it, just as he did Oct. 10.
I am so Blessed to have a caring and wonderful husband, Roger, family and friends.
So please pray for all of our firefighters, paramedics, ambulance services, nurses and doctors.
Thank you again to everyone involved,
