The following is a blog that originated as a way for me to be studius
and remember what had happened. What I've been through to
percevere. I am neurologically disabled as a result of the accident
described below. I'm able to function enough on my own to have a
business working from home. Mainly because I'm the only one it
hurts when I forget protocol. Thank You, God, for giving me the
opportunity to live the way you intended. Thank You for making me
realize I can be a better person. Both to myself, and those around
I wish to be visible in a diverse culture; to capture every heart by sharing the love, grace and hope of Jesus; to care for one another; and to glorify God by serving my local community and world.
Here's my testimony. I hope it inspires. I am walking/talking proof the Lord will indeed provide. If nothing else, I hope I make some new phriends.<<<<< mispelled by design ;-)
The following is a little about me and is the result of a blog I did for therapeutic reasons. lol Please, let me explain. On 8/23/07, I was in a minor accident that had some major ramifications. I fell asleep on my motorcycle. Dozed off just before I came to a bend. Turned out I wasn't getting sound sleep because my tonsils were making me snore too much. They were naturally large, causing me to never fall into a rem-state of sleep. I dozed off and didn't make the turn. Rode straight off the road doing an estimated 35mph and hit a concrete barrier. I fractured my neck and broke my collarbone. I was in a coma for 6 weeks, I think. I had to learn how to walk & talk again. I was truly blessed to make it out alive. I have some balance issues at times and a chronic loss of short-term memory. I find a positive attitude goes a long way toward making it through the day. My memory will always suffer. It can be very frustrating both to me and those I communicate with. But, if I didn't tell, you would never guess I had been in such an accident. I was truly blessed, and will continue to share His love whenever presented with the opportunity.
My friends and family know this experience has made me "born again". I thank God for the opportunities I've been given and for the life I've been given another chance to prove worthy. I thank Him for the opportunity to help people smile every day. I deliver flowers, or smiles. I have found this to be VERY gratifying! Not only do I get to help people smile every day. But, I also get to pray for the deceased when I deliver to funeral homes. Best of all, I get the occassional opportunity to help the sick when I deliver to their hospital rooms. I loved it while I was doing it. Now I'm a professional philanthropist while promoting a green lifestyle that actually saves time and money. Let me know via email you care about your health and the health of our planet, and I will gladly show you how.
I've been donating smiles to our caregivers as a way to say, "Thank You", for all the miracles they perform every day. After all, some would consider it a miracle I'm still here today. I thank God for giving those the heart and commitment needed to save me. See my donation history via the "Donation History" tab at the top of this page.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make
your paths straight.
Update 6/20/15 - It's been almost 8 years since and I can honestly say I am soooo happy God took the time to knock me up-side the head to make me see the light. I am proud of the man I've become and grateful for the opportunity to serve Him faithfully with my community. This company saved me! I joined in 2009 after being laid-off by Conway Freight. I was home and looking for work when a friend introduced me to them. I credit my inability to find work to the economy. But, also because of the neurological injury I sustained in that accident. I'm convinced this also was the cause of the misunderstanding that assured my inclusion in the layoff. In a matter of 3 days, I went from being recommended for promotion to being written-up and let go. Anyway, this was only the beginning of my social decline. I lost my home to the bank and my belongings to theft while in transition. I started my life over again as a contract-courier specializing in floral delivery. I was still having trouble socially. All my friends were from work. 10-year-old relationships became non-existent. There were a handful that kept in touch and helped me when they could. They know who they are and I will always love them. But, I didn't lean on them heavily and they were eventually gone, too. I was dependant on my church family and a wonderful brother that went above and beyond to help me get my life back on track. At that time, I even put my Preferred Member status pn hold. Like i said, I was grateful for the help I was receiving. I had lost my ability to be self-sufficient until I started delivering flowers. So I finally get to a place in my life where I can continue my Preferred Membership. My goal was simply to use the health products I had become familiar with to help me with my rehabilitation. I credit much of my neurological progress to their product, "Unforgettables". A result of finally get my disability insurance claim awarded, I lose by courier job and moved to a new beginning. While I do give a great amount of credit to the products for my exceptional progress, that isn't what this is about. After having an 8-5 schedule for almost 20 years, I was severely lost with the reality of becoming socially challenged. I don't think I'm an insensitive guy. I'm a gentleman 99% of the time. I even open car doors. Yet, Dallas, TX didn't want anything to do with a half-witted neurologically-disabled guy that occasionally forgot names, unless I can take them to Europe at the drop of a hat. So, now I'm relocated to beautiful Reno, NV. I'm still struggling with all the time on my hands and limited funds. After all, I can always find something to do when I have the funds. I decided to start applying myself to share my knowledge with others. I have my "8-5" back, I don't invest nearly that many hours. But, I'm productive and that's the point. Best of all, I only work when I want to work. lol My days have purpose again! Providing that "purpose" is how they saved me. My sanity had become dependent on having that financially-responsible purpose to complete every day. Having my own business provides exactly that. BONUS: I get to LIVE the mission statement. I now live to enhance the lives I touch. You can, too!! Let me show you how.
It's strange, though. Ever wonder whether you made the right choices in
life when it comes to those you've chosen as friends?? Or if your family
really supports you?? Unfortunately, I have. I thought I had surpassed
those questions in my life. I had outgrown questioning my worth to my
friends and family. Which brings me to where I am at this moment. I'm
questioning whether my friends are worthy of my friendship. I'm
ashamed to say, this includes family. I've persevered and now have my
own company. I help people! It's very gratifying!! Yet, not a single one of
my customers (supporters) are a friend that existed before I started the
business, or family. Apparently, not a single person I knew before I
started shares in my values. Yeah...that's right!! I will only SAVE you
TIME and MONEY!!! But, still, it's apparent nobody I thought would be
supportive wants to save time and money. MAYBE, they think they are
expected to build a business like I have. NOT! There are no "have to's" in
my buisness. I've been told, "I'm too busy". That's gotta
be THE most idiotic statement I'v ever heard. Of course, you wouldn't
understand why unless you took 45 minutes to let me help you. Yes, you
DO have 45. I've heard, "y'all don't make anything I use". Again, idiotic!
Of course you don't use any of our products. If you did, you would
already be a member. But, for 30 years, we have been manufacturing
clinically proven superior and naturally-formulated products. The same
type EVERYONE already use every day. Unless, of course, you don't
bath, brush and clean. If that's you, then I don't want your friendly smell
around, anyway. lol AND, they cost less to use! We manufacture
environmentally-safe products that are clinically proven and
cost less to use than anything else you buy at your local store. So, why
do my "friends" and family keep their heads in the ground? Why turn
away free information that can only help?? The only answers I'm able to
reason, is "ignorance". But, then I remember they wouldn't me friends if
that were the case. So, they simply must not care. Bringing us back to
the lack of "values". "Success should come by: Are we living the values
we believe in" -Frank L. Vandersloot BTSmithOnline.ilovesuccess.net
