Hi, my name is Teresa! I'm not new to sparkpeople but, it's been several years since I've been here (back then I was "tabbysmom"). On Oct. 10,2012, I had a major stroke and had to be life-flighted. The Dr.'s said, at that time, that I would need to have rehab as I was completely paralyzed on my right side, and I couldn't talk right....2 days later I was discharged with, NO residual effects!!! It was only by the grace of God that I had a complete, and speedy recovery and it was also a wake up call. I've also been having issues with neck/back/knee pain, and some other health issues that, with a healthy lifestyle, would greatly improve. I tell people,"I'm too young to be this old" and it's time I do something about it!!!
I am a widow, and have been for 11 years. I have no children, except for my "fur babies", Jazzy and Tabby. Because of several issues, I had to move in with my mom and it can be very challenging at times, as she has Parkinson's, and early stage dementia. The stress of the last 3 years has taken it's toll and I'm determined to get my life back!!
I am active in ministry with 2 different churches. I am part of the praise & worship team at the first one, and the second one...well...it's not what you would consider a "traditional" church. Our ministry deals with mostly "street folks", those who have been/would be rejected in a typical church. Most of them have mental/emotional issues, and learning disabilities. Sometimes they act inappropriately, have poor hygiene, etc. But, we love them the way they are, just as Christ has taught us. I'm also a member of the board, and about once a month, I'm the "preacher"!!
If I'm going to help others, I need to lead by example!!
