I don't normally blog about this kind of stuff, so it just gets overlooked, but I had another issue with my balance today. I was getting ready to take my youngest daughter to school (about 7:30 a.m.) and lost my balance; I found myself on the chaise (luckily not the floor). This is not the first time this has happened. I don't like to blog about this kind of stuff, but I need to keep a record of this (as I have said before) and I don't know of any better place to keep track. So, expect a little more blogging activity. But, regardless of my current circumstances, God is still good. As I have said in previous posts and to various people, I feel pretty good for a dead guy; considering I was not expected to survive the surgery, a few balance issues are very minimal.
Tomorrow I will preach the funeral for a dear friend of mine. He was the definition of a selfless person. I truly appreciated all that he did, but, when I was meeting with the family on Wednesday a memory came to me suddenly and I was suddenly overcome with emotion. Let me back up a little bit: After my stroke in December, 2008 my license was revoked for obvious reasons and it took me some time and practice before I was able to drive again. I finally got my license back in February, 2009. But, shortly after I got my license back the reality of the severity of my stroke became evident: my stroke had seriously impacted the PONS area of my brain stem, and therefore, a lot of my nerves were negatively impacted. One of the nerves that was damaged was the nerve that controls my eye movements; my left eye would would twitch, at times almost uncontrollably, and that made it really difficult to drive, particularly at night. That brings me to the memory that left me so emotional. Fast forwar
