Every day is a new challenge to live for. I always drink at least two of my 32 oz cup of water. I'm working on getting my left leg to work since it is not cooperating at the moment. I also work on maintaining the weight loss I've accomplished. Also to take the rest off.

I figure I survived two days of spine surgery that were both 8+ hours each day. For some reason I'm still alive so there must be a reason. For the next year I will be healing and working on getting stronger and losing the next 20-30 #'s. After that year I might be able to get the excess skin removed.

I still have good days and bad days that I work through. I also have nights that I am just to awake for my own good. So I work one day at a time and slowly climb towards the goal of being able to walk without my walker or cane. I want to get my Doberman puppy as my service dog so I can put a harness on her with a handle that will help me balance because I really hate my walker and my cane. I would also have to carry around my reacher to pick up what I drop. Instead of that I can teach her to pick up objects that I drop and to help me balance. She will also have a back pack that will be my purse so I don't have to carry one.

I figure I'm still alive so I get to live. I'll change my garden so I'll be able to work it and I'll still be able to grow my food and keep being able to do what I love. I'll just keep working on being capable as much as possible. Never say I can't do it. Always figure a way that I can do it. Thinking outside the box will always help.

More to come....

    Philippians 4:13 Scripture Poem

    I have strength for all things
    Through Christ who empowers me
    I'm ready for anything that comes my way,
    Even what I may not foresee
    For it is Christ who infuses me,
    Strengthening me in His might
    And I am sufficient in His sufficiency
    With the power of Christ inside.

    Good Morning

    Dropping by to wish you a Blessed Easter Weekend and share a special Easter Poem....

    Easter Means Eternal Life

    A perfect God demands a perfect justice;
    He cannot let us get away with sin.
    We used God’s gift of our free will to trespass,
    So heaven’s gates were closed; we couldn’t get in.

    Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
    To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.
    "But I love them!" cried our Father, filled with sorrow;
    "I’ll send my only Son to be the one."

    Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
    The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
    He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
    So we could be with Him in paradise.

    On Easter morning, he came back from death;
    He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.
    His resurrection means eternal life
    For us, the ones he came to earth to save.

    This summarizes all the Easter story
    And because of it, we’ll be with Him in glory.
