I'm feeling much better, but am still having trouble with my balance.

Donít need to sit and stare at the wall

Four months ago I was at a serious crawl (stroke)

I almost got to see Peter and Paul

Iím not worried about that call

I donít need to browse in a stuffy mall

I can stand tall

out in this wonderful fall

This write may be small

I figure it is for you all.

Take it one day at a time, and if you fall, try to dust yourself up, get back up, and go on. I fall sometimes too; balance isn't that good (hence the crutches). I also laugh at my mishaps, and tend to do so when others fall (not for meanness, I can't help it). As long as I know people aren't injured when they fall, I can laugh. My grandma did this; I do the same. Know you are ever in my prayers; just be careful when you walk!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your (sure-footed) friend (NOT!!), Karen Lynn in Texas. :D

Thank you for the write Ron,
Try to continue walking evry day
Practice makes perfect,

to the rhythm of your stride
it's a slow trip there , but you will make it
God bless you and peace be with you
