A Stranger

Sunday, October 21, 2007

Again it has been awhile and I haven’t got back on track and I know that I really need to. My knees and back are so bad that it is very hard for me to walk around. But I still do when I get a chance. This last weekend I went to the State Fair. I knew I was going to have a hard time so I took a walking cane along for help. Believe you me it helped a lot. At one point I thought about renting a wheel chair that is how much I hurt. But I didn’t do it. I just kept on walking. Today I have swollen knees and ankles hurt so badly. The real reason I am sharing all this a very nice thing happened, as I was walking a young man that I still don’t know walk by me and stopped and said to me “Your doing great job, keep up the good work, be proud of yourself. I am. ” Well I just wanted to share that because it meant so very much to me to have a stranger say such nice things. I know it is my turn to get off my tail and do something

    Every day is a new day and you seemed to have had a great one today. It had to make you feel so good to have a perfect stranger to pay you a compliment I am sure it was well deserved. Good Luck you are doing an amazing job.

    What a nice young man! You'll hurt less and less and less. It is so nice. My knees used to bother me but not now. I can't undo the damage I've done to them but I can help them in the future. Doing things like going to the fair makes anyone tired but just think next year how you'll be running around. We're the same age btw and it's still pretty young!! Good luck. (And send that nice stranger my way)
