Well when did the problem start...

     It actually took years...

Years of good health...

     Years of little thought about body parts...

Body parts that worked...

     Worked painlessly...


But little by little this changed...

     She noticed her leg hurt...

Hurt near her knee...

     She thought it was a muscle...


As time went by it got worse...

     She gave it little concern...

She loved to go...

     She loved to drive...

With little thought she cut back...

     Cut back on driving long trips...


Slowly she noticed it was now pain...

     Real pain had entered her life...

Something had to be done...

     Done to solve the problem...

She had to face the facts...

     Find a doctor with answers...


80 year old knees both...

     Both needed surgery...

The pain made the decision...

     Pain is a powerful motivator...

It can run your life...


Family and friends are needed...

     Needed in everyone's life...

Needed always...

     Needed more when illness visits...

Visits anyone's life...


Family and friends stepped up...

     Stepped up and made the difference...

Illness can bring out the best...

     The very best in family and friends...


Remember folks you can be that person...

     That person who makes the difference...

You have that power...


You can do a thing that may seem small...

     Seem small to you...

May be huge to the person who has a need...

     

She is walking now...

     It has not been a smooth recovery...

Lots a family and friends were needed...

     This has been a long eventful period...

Months of needs for help...


She will never forget...

     Forget the people who helped her...

Helped her recover...


Remember you have the power to help...

     Power to make a difference...

Kindness is powerful medicine...

     It helps the giver and the receiver...
