LIFE. O Father God ... LIFE. sigh.
2 Saturdays ago, rick and i went to Cross Plains, TX and watched our grandson, and our adopted grandson, both ride in the buck-out. it was a Blast! we had so much fun! Shell rode to the buzzer for a score of 72. the luck of the draw left him with a running horse rather than a bucking one - but he still spurred on! C.R. drew a rank horse, and was bucked off about 6 seconds into the ride.
and then, this last thursday night, we were privileged and blessed to see our oldest grandson, Elijah, play in his football game at Como-Pickton. Go Eagles! and they won! 38-0 - awesome! it rocked this grannee's world! i am a football grannee! yee-haw!!!
rick had his doctor's visit this past wednesday. good visit. good report. it will be later this week when we get the results of the blood work. the only thing - last month when we returned to coffee creek from his doctor's visit .... we had stopped at the quik trip in greenville, and rick took a fall in the store. the soreness has mostly gone - but he is left with little to no feeling in his hands, always having the numbness of his hands being almost but not quite asleep. and he has a very tender spot on his neck, and lower back. dr greenwell said that he believed it to be like a whiplash on the neck, and perhaps a strained or sprained lower back. but because dialysis patients are more prone to bone fractures, he ordered an MRI to make sure there is nothing serious going on. he said that if it is whiplash and a sprained lower back, that it will just take some time - along with a balance of rest and activity - to heal up. we wait on the MRI.
we enjoyed a visit with mandy while we were down in sulphur springs. i am so proud of the woman she has become! thanking God daily for our daughter - and one of my best friends.
we also visited with rick's parents, tina and Kayleigh. oh how precious Kayleigh is! she and i argued - lol ... and i was told - "you're funny!" :LOL, uncle bill, pat, and charlie. a good visit with everyone. good conversation, sweet laughter.
back at coffee creek ... still hanging in there work camping. missing don and mary ann and scott ... getting to know the new manager, Rick. there are changes, and it is hard to enjoy changes - but so far, not something that we cannot endure. like my rick said - if changes get to be something we cannot live with, that is the good thing about living in an rv! it has wheels! go on down the road! time will tell ... and we shall see.
i know that God has the plans for our lives ... sometimes i wish He would at least give us peek into those plans ... but guess that is part of this life of faith!
