As things are returning back to normal, I thought it was time for an update on what's been going on here at the farmhouse. Mr P. is improving each day, he has graduated from the walker to being able to stand and walk without assistance!
He is back to driving, he could hardly wait to get the go-ahead to get back behind the wheel, it seems my driving scares him, he says I drive a little to fast for him, most back seat drivers critique their drivers, I think he is paying me back for my critiquing~grin~ I just smiled and forged ahead to my destination. He still deals with pain, which is expected, therapy is going well, starting this week, we will have gone from three days to two! "Thank you" to everyone for your sweet thoughts, encouragement and prayers.🙏👏
It seems my patient got away from me yesterday, when I went to make coffee this morning, I found this lovely surprise on the kitchen counter top, I asked myself "How in this world did he get away to go shopping?" I know I wasn't sleeping as I am not usually a daytime sleeper, ('wish I was').
a lovely card with beautiful thoughts, telling me how much he loved me and thanking me for all I had done to help him during this time, 😂😂💕 💖💖
Last week after Dre and Susan left to go back to their own lives, my "Farm Girl " skills were put to the ultimate test, I must say the first day, I failed miserably, as I was about to let the floodgates overflow with tears, I looked up into the heavens and there was the most beautiful, clear, full moon. I knew then, that everything was going to be okay, My heavenly Father's timing is always so perfect, so by the time Charlie came by to help close up the chickens, ducks, and turkeys, I was fine.
James 1:2~3 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
I had made the mistake of trying to lock them up to early, I had chased the ducks and turkeys for one hour trying to get them in, but they would not, until it was dark, I finally gave up and waited. If I could have choked that "Gobbler" I would have, ~grin~when the ducks went in he would somehow get them to come out.
Here is the trouble maker strutting this afternoon.
Needless to say, the sheep are staying in the pasture, and I am waiting until it is completely dark to try and close up the chicken houses. It doesn't take a second time for me to learn!~wink~
I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day, again, "Thank you" so much for your sweet thoughts and prayers.
Normal is more beautiful than ever to us! Mr P. is so happy to be getting his independence back, I am happy to see him getting back to normal!
This is us today, more in love than ever, and living our dream of growing old together.
