Well, here I am again, another week to write my column.
I love life lots! Every day is a new beginning and a chance to try something new today, especially for me and my memory problems. I don't remember five minutes ago, let alone yesterday. That's just the way it is.
I don't know how to say it to explain it to other people. I don't even know how to say it to myself. It's just the way it is.
One result is that I don't get to make a lot of decisions about my life myself. Mom and Larry do it for me. I guess that's fine. I've never felt like they were mean to me or treated me badly, I just wish life was different somehow.
My memory issues make life interesting, because every moment is a new beginning. Now, it's the only thing I know, so I just deal with it moment by moment and day by day.
It isn't the life I wanted, but I still do well every day. I know things could be a lot worse. I could still be in a coma or I could even be dead.
When I get up in the morning, I smile. Smiling is very refreshing and awesome. It makes me feel alive inside and happy. I do my daily devotions and thank God that I'm still here.
I know there are other people like me with some of the same and even worse problems than me. I hope my column helps them, too.
