Show Us Your Life Friday-Introduction

Hello everyone, my name is Denise, also known in the blogging world as  shortybear. I am 53 years young, and live in Chattanooga Tennessee with my husband of almost 31 years Eddie. Our wedding anniversary is right around the corner, on April 6th.We do not have any children, except for our fur baby, Coco.I tried for 16 years to get pregnant, but it was not meant to be, due to medical problems.  I have type 1 diabetes, really bad. It has caused many
problems for me, such as nerve damage to my eyes, hands, legs, feet, and stomach. I had a stroke in 2011, a heart attack , and triple bypass in 2014. I attempted suicide in 2015. As you can see, I do not hold anything back on my blog. Why should I? There is no reason to sugar coat things. Life is what it is, filled with ups, and downs. I love the Lord, and thank Him for daily being with me, and putting up with me. I am just me, being me!!

Your honesty is so refreshing, Denise.
Your trials sound sometimes insurmountable, but I believe there's a reason He needs you here. Hugs!

Loved getting to know you, Denise! Thank you for stopping by my blog! I am so glad you know the love of our savior Jesus! I don't know what I would have done without him all these years. He doesn't promise that if we follow him, we will have a life free of troubles, but he does promise that he will be with us and comfort us in our time of need. I hope you have felt his comforting love surround you and bless you through all the health problems you have suffered. My adopted mother was a lifelong diabetic who could never have children and she too suffered from numerous other health problems that go along with it, including a long history of heart problems with too many blockages to count and multiple heart attacks. She was blessed to have great medical care through the years. She passed away too soon in 2014 after we lost our baby girl. I think her advice today would be to enjoy every day you are blessed with on this earth because you never know when it will be your last. Blessings, my friend!
