Sample text

Get a digital pillbox with a countdown timer? Post my medication schedule? Fill a daily pillbox with my pills? Keep a diary of medications? Put my morning pills beside my bed? Carry an emergency supply in my pocketbook? Leave an extra set of pills at work? Count them out the night before? Or do several of these? There has to be an answer to fit my personality. I'll settle on a system and keep on following it, till it is second nature. I count pills for each day and tote a backup supply. There! That's better!

I am real! God cares for me! I remember not a diagnosis, but joy and a rainbow. I came home and began a diary, recording information I have needed many times since. Those who are attentive to a matter will prosper. Proverbs 16:20 Page 30 Putting Pride Aside Toes Curl Under Fifteen miles from home, I reached into my purse. My pills weren't there. I should go home immediately, but I need to buy a birthday present. I can do that quickly. On my way to pay at the checkout, my toes ached. Then my feet stuck to the floor.

So, in some way, pick up your bed and walk! Stand up, take your mat and walk. John 5:8 Page 37 Look for Ability, Not Disability The Disabled and the Astilbe Who is disabled? We are all disabled: high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, cavities, overweight, underweight, needing hormones, needing exercise, heart disease, poor eyesight, nearly deaf. Flawed. The astilbe! Delicate and perfect! Flawed? Not the beautiful astilbe! Oh! But I see, a bug crawls there. Flawed. Watch the bug, and it's flawed.
