Johnathon writes a letter to his friend, Rebekkah, who has shared some exciting news with him.

Monday, July 14, 2008, 5:09 a.m., D.S.T.~

Dear Rebekkah Rachel~

Hey!  Johnathon here.  Hope this finds you well; seems to be that you are doing just that.  I have been okay, but feeling more in the way of weakness, pain.  Breathing, though, behaving itself; hope it continues, for breathing is compatible with life. :) 

Congratulations on your mom's news; that is awesome to hear!  I pray that the pregnancy will come into fruition; when my mom got pregnant last year, it blew us all away, but we've since gotten used to having babies around the house again.  They aren't too bad; they are cute, and it won't be long before they start to crawl.  I love Ian and Isaiah so much; it's fun being the big brother to twins!

Our family is doing well; me, I got over another dang sunburn.  Seems no matter how hard I try, or how much sunblock I put on, I still end up getting toasted!!  Case in point:  the recent Fourth of July celebration here in town.  I got burnt bad!!  I looked (and felt) just like a boiled lobster!  I was so red I GLOWED!! LOL

This is when I hate my sisters Ronee', Enriquesa, Monica, Rhiannon, Chrissie, Deborah, Dwerlina, or Kecia, or my brothers Jeraldo, Roberto, Anh, Gabriel, or Arjun:  all have naturally dark skin anyway; they never burn!  They just get darker, making me jealous! LOL  Oh, what I'd give to have a nice, healthy tan instead of getting another blasted burn!! ARRGGH!!!!

Mama and daddy are the same way:  they get out in the sun, and they look like they could be BLACK, they get so dark! LOL

It was nice seeing you walking so well on your new legs and on the crutches.  That gave me a sense of hope; glad things have improved for you.  You have had so much happen to you this past year; if anyone deserves happiness, it's you! :)

Wasn't Pastor Bilkey's sermon today on God's purpose for your life awesome??  I often have wondered what my purpse is in life, why He's let me live this long; now I know.  To bring hope, encouragement to other sufferers of neuromuscular diseases, and to bring the message of hope, salavation to them, too.  I am so glad God's let me live this long; it's been nothing short of miraculous!

Well, Rebekkah, I am getting sleepy again, so I am going to shut this down, go back to bed.  Take care and write wheenver you can.  I love hearing from you; please understand that if I don't write back quickly it's because I'm either too busy or my stupid MD is flaring its ugly head again!  (I do wish it'd quit that....)  Just keep me in your prayers, and I'll do the same for you.  Take care and God bless you mightily!

I love you too!

~As always, your friend, Johnathon Irwin-Allen. :D

Karen, this is supposed to be a cheerful letter, but it saddens me to hear of a child with "new" legs, and to hear a little boy say he is lucky to have lived this long. I'm sure this is reflective of many folks who have similar problems and illnesses and because you bring it to the attention of others, you are to be congratulated. Well done.

How precious as Johnathon do not dwell on his own healt but is so thankful that God has let him survive this long. There is no self pity filling his heart. That sounds like a large familt to me. Thank you for sharing Karla.

Newfie hugs, Rose
