    I wrote earlier about my family health issue after issue.
    My youngest son endured all the hospital, doctor, police emergencies and every crazy issue which came with my husbands stroke, my health and his sisters health issues. It was so difficult I actually left for a few weeks at a time and prayed maybe this will help me clear my head. I remained sick over my husband. With my daughter well now I needed to take care of me. I prayed.
    God would hold us together it seemed impossible. But here we are heare I sit working on family issues and planning a party for my sons birthday and graduation. Did I mention through all this he is ann honor roll student and an althelete? I am lifted becasue god gave him to us. Our older children are married and doing there best to by despite the crazy makings of this century. Yetstill we rise because god has not left us. We were given each other to get by despite what problems or what our eyes have seen. Brenda corliss of gilroy ca.

    My last 3 years have been real tough. My eyes began to troulble me right before I was fired. I began school and began laser on my eyes. Then my voice left me. Illness fell upon us like a dark cloud no sun. . My husband a few months later had a stroke, my daughter had been struggling with kidney faulure anda other issues w=ith her health. We have struggled to regain our daily tasks difficult hurried and often trodden with anger over loss and more loss. We are in the midst of change. My daughter is stable for the moment. My husband is no longer paralyzed. He remains a miracle with still some memory and depression. God has brought him, us very far. I stood by with all what I seen. Held on cried screamed and prayed to god to lift us up. He gave me four other children before our mishaps and so many loving family and friends, a wonderful church community and we are here risen. I lost my sight in my right eye but god has maintained my left eye and my voice. I will sing again soon in my local chruch. Still I rise above all my eyes can see. Brenda.
