Serena Williams has been injured since last year after cutting her foot on glass. After having two surgeries to repair her foot she suffered blood clots which travelled to her lungs and could have killed her. She was convinced to go to the hospital by her sister, Venus.
“They said it could have gotten a lot more serious a day or two later. It could have possibly been career-ending, but for the grace of God I got there in time and I was able to recover from it.”
Serena claims that the whole experience has given her a new outlook on life. “I laid on the couch for a couple of days. Just so much stuff happened to me and I just couldn’t understand why. “I kept trying to figure out what I could do different or what - not necessarily what I did wrong, just what didn’t I do or what did I do to deserve this.”
So, it was by the grace of God that she got to hospital on time. But she can’t figure out why it happened? Surely “He works in mysterious ways…” is the answer.
