A day at the Fair

It was another beautiful FALL day and Jeff had the day off too! That is a great combination. We decided to go to the Fair, it was so fun. I love to just watch all the people. I wished in a way that Angie could have been with us, but by the evening when I saw all the little kids crying and so tired from being there all day, I was glad that we hadn't brought her. We were worn out and that would have been too long of a day for her.

There were so many rides that I couldn't ride, that I sorta felt sorry for Jeff. I did agree to one and that was a big mistake (FUN) but a big mistake. As we were spinning around so fast in the air and laughing and screaming Jeff tried to say to me " I ...will have goooooooo...see Keith ....after ..THISSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!" That is our chiropractor, we were laughing so hard but I thought my neck and back would never recover from it. I then ask Jeff if he wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel ( my back could handle that) but he said that he isn't that fond of I guess we both had our issues. It was just fun spending the whole day with him, he is an amazing man and how blessed I feel once again, to be married to my best friend!

I saw so many people with different handicaps there at the fair, I was so impressed that they got to come and that their caregivers would take all the energy to bring them there and take care of them. I personally know how much work that takes, our niece is handicapped and I have watched for years all the time and effort it takes for my brother and sister-in-law to get her dressed and ready for the day, much less take her out somewhere. But if you have ever spent time with one of these SPECIAL KIDS you will realize that you are the one that has been blessed by spending time with them. They truly are ANGELS on earth.

Well, I am writing my post this morning because I was in too much pain last night to do anything but ... I did get to go to the FAIR, now I just pray that I don't have to pay the price for it (with my body) for too many days. Health is such an important thing, for all of you that have yours....please don't ever take it for granted. And probably more important...try to make the best choices to keep your body healthy and strong. I truly don't think that many of us really realized how important our health was was until we lost it. But isn't that true with so many things? Have a great day!
