I am a stroke survivor

"Dear God, I am always wondering why I had a stroke when I was born? Why did you make me have a disability? I know I am doing all the things that a normal person can do, but I am confused. So when you get the chance, please tell me. That is all I ask of you right now. But anyway, I am sometimes overcoming it. I am doing zip lines, I am making friends and I am getting good grades in school. I am practicing my singing, so let’s think of the positives of the stroke. I am a nice, forgiving person and maybe when I die and go to heaven, I can be an angel of yours and go to my kids and their kids and give them advice, whatever it is. Love, Jillian"
