Three years ago, on April 2nd, I had a stroke which debilitated my speech and hindered my movements. Today, I live to tell the story how I came out on the other side by accepting the April Showers from my stroke that rose into beautiful May Flowers.

I am one of those people who is usually a bit reluctant about going into surgery. Well, on the early morning of Monday, September 28, I awoke and later realized spiritually, there was sunshine on my shoulder.

We needed to walk a 5km / 3.1 miles walk – the Stroke Comeback Trail. I needed to set up Mimosas, Nordic-Knot pretzels, juice and my painting: "i am awesome".
