I am grateful for the year since my last birthday that I have been allowed to experience another. My daughter, who had brain surgery in June of 2009, was given a clean bill of health this year. My DGD gave birth to my beautiful Sloan for whom there is much love and such happiness. I retired from my job and had a nice sendoff. I am blessed with a loving and caring family, and, in spite of the neuropathy that attacked my body in late November 2009, I am basicallly in good health and have been blessed unconditionally by my Heavenly Father.
I have made so many special friends here on SP and believe that your love and caring is what helped me make my goal in September 2009. Now, I have gained some of that back, and am struggling to lose it again, but I know with the encouragement and inspiration of all of you here, I will be able to soon lose it.
I have a comfortable roof to live under, a car that takes me where I need to go, food in my freezer, fridge and pantry, and enough income to be independent. I have a loving family who sees that I am well protected and helped with those things I can no longer handle. My dear former co-workers bring me vegetables from their plentiful gardens, and I know if they knew I was ill or in need, they would be there for me.
So there isn't anything more one lady could wish for between birthdays. And I only pray that between this one now passing and the one I hope to enjoy next year, all things will remain the same.
God bless and thank you for being my friends.
