It was in late February, that I recall being aware of my surroundings. The first person I saw was Kathy. From that moment on, regardless of what else happened, I knew all would eventually be well. As I began to comprehend my situation and prayed about it, I asked myself as a pastoral therapist “what would I advise?” I thought “day by day, keep active, and let Jesus take care of the rest.” I would “get busy livin...”. There would be no turning back. I was going to live a normal life regardless of what it took.
