I Will Be Strong! I Will Endure!
By Kenneth Green
Being strong is something that I don’t do very well. I have been working hard every since I found out I had heart failure to be more fit. But finding out I had kidney failure has thrown me for a loop. I have been having to be strong in a variety of ways. Physical, Mental and emotional strength is important any time you’re dealing with a chronic illness like Kidney Failure.
My life has been very stressful as of late. I have had loads of sad times. This weekend I was privileged to give a talk in church and teach Sunday school. Then after church, i had to go to the hospital for tests and stay overnight. I am so grateful all of the tests came back good and my creatine tests are looking better than ever. Me sticking to the Renal diet is working and it is helping me to not have to start dialysis for a few months.
Keys to Strength
I have noticed that as of late I have had a super amount of stress in my life. I am so grateful to my wife who I love with all my heart. My eternal companion loves me and even though sometimes in my weakness I can be a jerk. I have been a jerk to my wife as of late and I publically apologize. But I also have noticed that stress has made me feel a lot worse. So my first key to strength is to overcome
So now I am working on finding the sweet spot in life. I am learning not to stress over the little things in life. I am going to enjoy each day and value it as a gift from God. I am so blessed that I have friends who support and love me. So I will be going back to playing my games. I’ll be going back to hanging out with my wife and family. We will travel, we will eat right and work out! We will live life to its fullest! God has been so good to me! I am so grateful for my readers and subscribers! More is coming!!
