At first I thought there was too much for me to read at one time (eye pmleobrs) than I started reading a little at a time, and your story held my attention, wow.Thanks for sharing your struggles. Yes, Dec can be such a hard month to go through with so many past memories and new ones that come along.I pray that your next two apointments will also be good news for you.My biggest struggle ( the newest) is trying to heal from my knee surg.There are some super hard days with more pain than others.Espec.after the P.Therapy exercises, the day after is not that easy either.How do I get by daily? Lots of frequent prayers and some crying to relieve the stress of daily pain. It is getting better but it just takes too much time to go by each day. I do look for the tiny steps of progess that happens. they are there, you just have to notice them and thank God for them.(this includes you doing the same in your life.) Love, Dotty
