October 2011

September 24h Buck and Verna held their annual Gordie's Day fundraiser for us. We appreciate their efforts and hard work they put into it to make it happen. We certainly couldn't do this journey without the funds it raises. All the funds raised goes toward my medical expenses not covered by insurance. I thank God for the love and support shown to us from everyone that so graciously give to help us. Because of  the weather, there wasn't a motorcycle ride that is usually part of the event, but all the chicken bar-b-que was sold! All in all it was a good day. I will post some pictures of the event.

As for me, I am doing pretty well. With the cooler weather setting in, I need to take extra care not to get sick. Every day is a another day I am blessed with. As this disease slowly robs me of my ability to function, I am reminded to appreciate what little I can still do on my own. Typing is becoming quite cumbersome and time consuming. It just takes more effort to navigate around the keyboard. I'm constantly hitting the wrong keys due to the lack of control of my fingers. But I'm grateful that I haven't lost complete function of my hands. There is always something to be thankful for if you don't dwell on what you can no longer do. I'm trying to keep a positive outlook through it all. Your prayers, generosity, and support are greatly appreciated, thanks!
