The kitchen along with the two bedroom duplex I lived in from 2001 until one year ago 2013 in April-was my favorite room. My dad-Ernest Carl Le Pore-in heaven now-loved cooking. I will always remember the best of who he was and he man he was when I was younger. Dealing with living next to him with congestive heart failure and severe, crippling arthritis, changed my life and made me stronger and made me move in an instant to help.
My mother-Ramona Lea Le Pore-who is still alive, living in Moreno Valley in an Alzheimer’s Care home, is the best family member I have today. She remained true, remained kind, loving, and held the values she instilled in all of us as children.
I hope I will find the lawyer that will help me get what I am owed-which is nothing I ever banked on, but something I have a God-Given right to.
Dealing with a fractured wrist made me rethink how important my hands were and how grateful I am now able to type these words with both hands; I remember how I struggled to create a system with one hand and built it to 35 w.p.m.
I am grateful I am now able to type as before, even though my left index finger and ring fingers hurt…they move. I will be going to occupational therapy soon too and know my mobility will improve.
What have you been through that changed you?
