    moving a long

    Last week was a hard week. A newly revived friendship with a couple in Pa, I had just reaching out to a few weeks prior , pouring my guts out , while dealing with the depression that has come from the med's from the knee surgery and the ordeal of the fire I was heading to a place that had no return. I hit that wall hard. I have not wanted to talk about this online but with a brother in the Lord who knew my heart. A person who was there for me many years ago. John has been a stronghold in the faith and as I was lead to take my cares to him , getting my troubles out he was their for me along with my Lord, a hard battle was fought and I came through with a renewed heart and new vision.
    I want to thank those of you who have held me up in your thoughts and prayers for they have been as eagles to carry me over the troubled waters.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Sorry to hear of your battles Dave. Keep the faith and as my mom would say "Chin up" lol.
    I have been exceptionally fortunate so far with the knee. I have tried to stay off the pain meds as much as possible. I think they can drive you over the edge without any help from anything else.
    This leg thingy is not for sissies. I tend to feel its more of a mental battle than a physical one. Its times like this i take comfort from being as stubborn and determined as a donkey.
    Take heart Dave all the issues will pass over time and soon we will look back with sun shining wondering what it was all about.
