New Year, New Me

Hi, my name is Teresa! I'm not new to sparkpeople but, it's been several years since I've been here (back then I was "tabbysmom"). On Oct. 10,2012, I had a major stroke and had to be life-flighted. The Dr.'s said, at that time, that I would need to have rehab as I was completely paralyzed on my right side, and I couldn't talk right....2 days later I was discharged with, NO residual effects!!! It was only by the grace of God that I had a complete, and speedy recovery and it was also a wake ...

The Dr.'s said, at that time, that I would need to have rehab as I was completely paralyzed on my right side, and I couldn't talk right....2 days later I was discharged with, NO residual effects!!! It was only by the grace of God that I had a complete, and speedy recovery and it was also a wake up call. I've also been having issues with neck/back/knee pain, and some other health issues that, with a healthy lifestyle, would greatly improve. I tell people,"I'm too young to be this old" and it's time I do something about it!!!
I am a widow, and have been for 11 years. I have no children, except for my "fur babies", Jazzy and Tabby. Because of several issues, I had to move in with my mom and it can be very challenging at times, as she has Parkinson's, and early stage dementia. The stress of the last 3 years has taken it's toll and I'm determined to get my life back!!
I am active in ministry with 2 different churches. I am part of the praise & worship team at the first one, and the second one...well...it's not what you would consider a "traditional" church. Our ministry deals with mostly "street folks", those who have been/would be rejected in a typical church. Most of them have mental/emotional issues, and learning disabilities. Sometimes they act inappropriately, have poor hygiene, etc. But, we love them the way they are, just as Christ has taught us. I'm also a member of the board, and about once a month, I'm the "preacher"!!
If I'm going to help others, I need to lead by example!!

Prayed for you this morning not to be discouraged and to allow your body to be restored in time as our Heavenly Father sends His Healing.
