February came and went very quickly. There was a lot of Life, Peace and Goodness in it.
Life is one of the words I’ve heard most often. I decided to attend my first Nystagmus Network conference this year. So far, we only have dates of the conference but nothing else. I am excited to find out what the theme is this year and to meet others who have the same condition that I do.
I feel like my room is a lot cleaner because my donations were picked up. It feels good to give to people who are in need.
February held two special events. Duke’s birthday was a fun day for him. He got lots of birthday wishes across my social media platforms and he got a homemade pupachino. Which he loved.
Valentine’s Day was fun. I went shopping on Amazon with a friend, and I got a few things I wanted. I went out to eat to a restaurant called Ivey’s. I had veal and pasta. It was good. That day was filled with laughter and fun.
Peace is something that I am still struggling with. I had a follow up appointment with my nurse, and I am happy to say that my blood work was fine. I just need to continue to exercise to help lower my weight, by choice, and to help me lower my cholesterol.
Goodness, I have seen God’s goodness this month. For those of you who do not know, I lost my mother, from a heart attack, when I was just sixteen. After this, I had plans to go and live with my biological father and my stepmother, however, due to my educational needs he allowed me to stay with my grandparents. For sixteen years, my grandfather has helped care for me. My grandfather has not required me to pay anything back to him for his kindness. All my grandpa said that I am required to do is to continue to grow and to keep reaching my goals. So, thank you, grandpa for the sixteen years of care. I can not thank you enough for your love and support. God truly has shown his goodness and grace by allowing me to stay with my grandpa. This year, just like years before, I will be treating grandpa to dinner. I love you grandpa.
Even though I do not know why God called my mother home I do know that God has a perfect plan for my life.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Mom, I hope that you are proud of the woman that I am becoming. I miss and love you very much.
To all my followers out there I can not stress this enough: please learn the warning signs of heart disease and more importantly a heart attack. Get care right away. It could save your life.
