This page is dedicated to “Endearing Endurance” a true story of Steve Caressers’ life. A “Then & Now” that will make you laugh, cry and ride an emotional roller coaster!
An enduring love story
Love is proven by a person’s endurance. When life kicks us down and beats us unmercifully people in general split apart. This is a story of two people who have been beaten down by life and endured. No mater how hard life got, they have stuck together.
Behind the scenes we are working on the eBook. When “Endearing Endurance” is completed we will tweet it on Twitter.
In the meantime you’re welcome to listen to audio excerpts in Steve Caressers’ voice. If you find him entertaining, you may wish to buy him a drink & if you are from Twitter, please RT this page.
Please read the following prologue & then sit back, push play & enjoy the show!
Prologue of a true story
“Endearing Endurance” is a true enduring love story about a poor troubled young man who was shot, stabbed, beaten with brass knuckles and chains, along with enduring many other tragedies, and incarcerated most of his teenage years, who finally met the girl of his dreams who was able to endure the taming of his troubled heart.
Hello Re'dar, my name is Steve, and I dubbed you with the nick name Re'dar; not to worry I nick name everyone I meet, and I need to know who I am telling my story to. I am the Author of “Endearing Endurance” and I was the poor troubled youth the true story is about. I’m happily enduring 33 years of marriage. I’m 54 years old. My wife and I live in the state of Kentucky USA in a mobile home. It’s December 2009. My troubled years began 41 years ago in 1968, in Modesto California, USA.
At birth I inherited Angina from my Dad; the artery coming out of my heart that supplied my body with its needed blood, was to small and constricting the blood, not allowing enough blood to my brain and body, and we had no idea until I had wasted most of my life trying to be normal like everyone around me, but I failed miserably in school and making a living.
I am however happy that three or four times a year I shut down mentally and physically for a month or two, instead of pushing myself into a heart attack like millions of people unsuspectingly do.
Re'dar if you're not familiar with Angina, when a person like me with angina exerts himself; his heart swells, and it out grows his chest cavity, and he either shuts down mentally and physically until his heart shrinks back to its normal size, or he pushes himself into a heart attack. Me; I'm one of the fortunate ones, I just ceased to function, shutting down mentally and physically having difficulties remembering even the basic things in my carpentry trade, dropping tools and injuring myself regularly.
Because of being unaware of the hereditary Angina and not understanding why I could not function normally in society, I felt and still feel like a bum my whole life because I kept shutting down mentally and physically a few months after starting a new job and doing so kept me from having a heart attack but also kept us below the poverty level our whole marriage and even today.
My Dad died some years back from complications with Alzheimer’s, and I can’t help but wonder, with all the talk on it being hereditary too, when will my inevitable turn be? My Dad was a great fighter in his day and so was I. When he did not recognize the men around him due to Alzheimer’s, he would become combatant and it would take 6 or 8 men to hold him down to tranquilize him. I’m nearing the age my Dad began showing signs of Alzheimer! So I am working day and night to finish this novel and if I am unable to finish it, my wife has my written permission here to submit it to a publisher to obtain any royalties.
Re'dar I have good days from time to time when I can remember everything clear as a bell. Then I have days when all I do is sit depressed and my wife has to be my memory, reminding me of everything, and it’s getting to where my wife’s memory is not what it used to be.
My wife Chris and I have endured 33 years of marriage. We have had more downs then ups, but because we endear endurance, our love has kept us happy and together. We have watched many marriages come and break apart in our life, but having the key to endearing endurance stuck us together like glue.
