How Being Asked If They Could Pray For Healing Changed My Mind

  The other day I was at Kmart for the main purpose of peeing… 

    Now I had just left a horrible doctors appointment that made me feel like I was doing everything wrong. 

   My papa was checking out when I sat down near the exit of the store. I was sitting on my roll aid walker and a lady walked over to me and said ever so kindly “can I ask what’s wrong with you!?” 

  I explain that I had a few rare and life-threatening diseases and that I was basically allergic to everything. 

   She felt bad she said “oh I’m so sorry you seem so lovely I’m so sorry you have to deal with this. Can I pray for you?” I nodded and said “yes praying would be ok” 

   She smiled and said “I’ll be praying for healing for your little body” 

  I smiled and without thinking said “can you pray for understanding, love and acceptince instead?” The lady’s smile grew very big and she said “young lady I can! Thank you for your kindness.” 

   I then said “what can I pray for you about?” 

 She went on to tell me her name was Nancy and she was facing some scary health problems. I told her that I would be praying. I gave her a link to my blog and then said “feel emotional. It’s ok.” She hugged me with tear filled us and said thank you. 

   I walked with my walker out of the store telling my papa what happened. 
  A few hours later it hit me really hard that healing isn’t what I’m looking for. I’m looking for better treatments for love, for understanding and acceptance. 
  I have it. I have understanding. I have acceptance. I have love. I don’t have better treatments but 3 out of 4 isn’t bad! It is ok to not dream for healing but to dream for life…
  I’m ShayWeasel I’m who I wanted to meet when I was a child. I became what I needed to survive. I don’t healing. I need understanding. And I got it.
