Highlights of 2019

I sit here reminiscing. Remembering the good, the bad, and the “oh no, not agains” and praise God for getting us to a positive point. We may not get around like we used to, but we get it done.

We both have to take things slower, but we keep going. One day at a time. One step at a time. Barry is having a few issues, but he is tough and his strength pulls him through. He is so courageous and I love that man.

He kicks my butt daily; making sure I do what needs to be done. I get unmotivated and negative. He looks at me and I do whatever he says. My speech is worse and my legs are not what they used to be. I despise my wheelchair, but I need it. I have started to accept that fact. Makes life easier.

We have to plan everything, which drives me insane. Barry the planner, not me! I like the freedom of doing what I want to do. My time is my time. One thing though, I love spending time with my hubster. We get closer eveyday.

Our faith will pull us through. I read the bible daily. Forever learning something new. We get to Church Services when we can or pull them up on the internet. We love to hear our preacher. He has a way with words. Of course, he has great material to work with. My eyes cause a problem or two from time to time, but I read as much as I can when I can see. Feels good to read again.

Just a few words today, but I promise more tomorrow. My puppy has had my attention for sometime. I will introduce you all to “Rider” soon. She is quite a character.
