A different road to travel.

Those who have followed me for awhile, know I tend to be chipper and positive.
The death of my oldest son, in May, has put me on a different road.
One I had not planned on, with many valleys.
As an artist, I have always enjoyed the shadows for that is where you find the secret joys, the ones not so obvious. A bit frightening at times, but thinking of the good keeps you going along.
The dark is also what makes the light even more amazing, bright and cheerful.Things stand ...

The dark is also what makes the light even more amazing, bright and cheerful.Things stand out, with contrasts. Colors dance and harmony comes to view.
As a gardener, the deeper evergreen colors are cooling and refreshing, along with the pops of a flower, not expected.
So it is with my life. I must live in the shadows, for now, with pops of amazing light.
My faith leads me through it all and grows ever stronger.
Friends and family, my little Tigger and Kenny himself, being closer than I think, are there to lean on, along the way.
Do I think about losing weight and health the same way I did?
No.
I am kind to myself, have good days and bad.
Take walks and think thoughts and pray.
Stretch for peace of mind and to feel closer to my 57 years than older.
Sometimes I feel so old now. It snaps me into drinking more water.
I know I will see Kenny again, but until then I need to take care of me, not really for myself, but for my other two children who are still living.
There are moments of light left.

Chris with your problems I feel like a wimp. So many have more problems than I do.
I have had this since 1962 when I first came to Mexico as I wrote in another blog being away from family during the months of Thanksgiving, Christmas and through New Years was difficult as I knew the family was gathered around our large table. Back then we had no phones, I had no hot water and lived kind of like in the depression when people didn't have much.
I had 6 siblings, me being the oldest.
God gave me the desire of my heart as I asked Him to save all of them before they died and they all did. I got to see all of them saved or they confessed it before they died. My first convert is the only brother I have left. He is 3 years younger than I.
I chose this life, to serve God but I am still human and have feelings just as Jesus had feelings also.
His own brothers rejected Him, his disciples abandoned him, Peter denied Him, Judas betrayed Him. What can we say.
In 2013 I had two knee surgeries and one wakes me up screaming at me.
In 2014 I broke a vertebrae in my back which still gives me problems.
But then I see others, much younger than I and in worse shape than I am in.
When I could get out I would stop and pray for people which brought a smile to their face, or just touched them or hugged. I was never turned away. Now I have a difficult time getting out and you know why.
Also it is difficult to do things around the house and because of the high ammonia levels I sleep late and have naps. I have my breakfast around noon.
Maybe this will explain a little of what I am going through.
Still I would not change my life for anything for only what's done for Christ will last.
Irene
