As I write this tonight I have many thoughts. We are so lucky. I saw a double rainbow tonight .Finally got my garden in.I can't wait for fresh tomatoes and veggies. The only bad news is the fact that I can't go to my dear friends son's wedding. I have been looking forward to the wedding for several months. I guess I'll just have to go visit when I'm feeling better. Oh well, signing out for now.Take time to smell the roses.

Isn't it amazing how the mind works! As I sat down with a dear friend of mine from many years ago, I realized that our bodies may change, our scenery may change, but we are really the same person that we have always been. I cherish my friendships over the years as much as I would gold. Probably more because I could stand to lose gold. I have been rich and I have been poor and as the saying goes "rich is better". To wake up every morning with a roof over my head and food in the fridge is great thing. There are many people all over the world who can't say that. and I am sorry for them. I know we all are born with a destiny designed for each and every one of us. That being said, I feel that  what we do after we are born helps to determine that destiny, good or bad. I can honestly say that on my journey I have been happy and sad, but every single thing has helped form the person that I am today. I still like me but I don't always love me . As we age I think that  how we regurgitate what we have experienced helps to determine what kind of a person we are today. A very good policy is that you want to to make new friends and keep friends that you have. One must change with the times. However, don't try to be a teenager in your sixties or an old man in your  teens. Something that I would tell people of all ages don't let yourself be bored or you will end being boring to all. We can always be excited about every single day even if it means just being able to get out of bed. I try to be open to anything that happens every day. For the last eighteen years there have been many things that have happened to me where I might not be too excited about what the day may hold. There is always something to make you happy even if it is just the pretty nurse who wants to take more blood or a bird that sits on the ledge outside your room. Happiness is contagious.

I just got home from Art on the river. What a great day./ Good music and friends that I haven't seen in a while. People asked what happened to my leg ( I told them it fell off). What happened to my hand (( flesh eating) what happened to my arm ( surgery to fix my hand). The most amazing thing after all of these revelations was that nobody noticed ( or at least said) how fat I was! Ain't life grand?

Wow. Another beautiful day. I thank God every morning and every night and sometimes in the middle.I really believe that we control our own destinies. A positive attitude helps and some days I'm positive that nothing more could go wrong. If you can't laugh at yourself and situations then it will get the best of you.

Every day we have our trials and however we handle them is done and over. I always remember a phrase. I don't know who said it, but it is so true. Today is the tomorrow that we worried about yesterday. When you look at life like that you can get through anything. A day is only twenty four hours. If you take it an hour or a minute at a time , it seems so much easier. We can get through anything no matter how troubling.

After having had eleven strokes ( major and minor ) heart attacks, flesh
eating disease, Crohns diseaes, COPD, amputation ( left leg below the knee), many resuscitations, trips to heaven (whether you believe or not). I AM READY TO TELL ALL. Questions are welcome. I hope that through this blog we all will learn how to get through every day a little bit easier. I believe in God And Dr.s. I don't think that without both 1.) I wouldn't be here  2) Life would lose a lot of  faith and wisdom. Feel free to comment.
I don't do healthy well. After twenty years of being sick, the thought of finally being well is daunting. In this blog I will try to explain as we go. Wish me luck.
