Keeping A Positive Attitude While Battling the Waves of Life

Bookmark and Share

You’ve heard the question, how do you want to be remembered, and Sioux Falls resident Deborah Brooks has her own aspiration.

"I'm the hallelujah anyhow lady, because when I achieve something I say well hallelujah anyhow,” explains Deborah Brooks.

To many, this South Dakota native Deborah Brooks has a lot to be proud of and according to her a lot to be thankful for.  Despite having a stroke in early December and having to re-train the left side of her body, Deborah continues to have a positive attitude.  

"Not going to lie to you I wish I could raise my arm up instantly but you got to do what you got to do,” says Brooks.

Each week Deborah continues to get better from walking up the stairs to what she calls getting promoted to a less sturdy cane.

"Now we might make progress slowly but lets be thankful for the slowly,” comments brooks.

She is also thankful for her ability to sing, even writing a song about her experience in rehab.

"If I could tell you anything I would like to tell people to be thankful for the activities of their limbs because there are so many things we don't even think about we just do it,” mentions Brooks.

Deborah continues to make progress, while staying thankful and taking one step at a time.

"I can't go as fast as you can but I can achieve the same goal,” says Brooks.

Just living life, while bringing a smile each and every day no matter the circumstance.
