Personal Battles

Not very long ago, I posted a request on my personal Facebook page for a close friend battling a rare disease. I share it now and ask my readers who are praying sorts to please do so for my friend.

I would also ask my readers to say a prayer for me. Not long ago, I got a call from my Doctor’s office informing me that my last A1C test was too high, and they wanted to put me on Medicine to handle Type 2 Diabetes.  I told them no — I would learn to control this myself. The Doc’s office gave me three months before another A1C test and meds. I have all the information I need to do this and am already feeling a difference — just in a few days.

Thankfully, some years ago in Arizona, my husband and I bought beautiful new ten-speed bikes. Although Ohio doesn’t have the dry heat of Arizona, it does have beautiful places to ride. Our bikes had been unused for a few years, so I took them to an excellent store, Bud’s Bicycle Shop. Now both of our bikes are in perfect shape. It occurred to me to use Ron’s bike with an indoor exercise workout bike stand so that inclement weather won’t keep me from my riding. My bike will take me out and about on explorations in my new neck of the world.

As an old movie nut — I thought the bike stand would make for an exceptional front-row seat in our own Rialto Theatre.

    Thank you Judy and Jan — It is always a help to have a cheering section — and prayers are always welcome! Jan, I will say some prayers for you and that thyroid of yours. We all have much to be grateful for, so let’s do our best! Thanks again!
