Yesterday was one of those picture perfect days. Not only because we saw the SUN, but because of what I got to do. In the morning Jeff and I were able to teach a class to the youth at church. I have always loved speaking but, speaking and teaching with ...Jeff is even better. He is good at it and he has a great testimony of the Lord, that is a great combination. I will talk a bit more about that class, tonight in my post.
When I came home from church, I had to lay down...being up on my feet that long hurts my back. After my nap, Amy, John and the girls came over and we were able to finally plant the rest of our garden. Angie loves working in the garden. She has her own apron, gloves, and tools just her size. She kept asking me why the weeds are so big and the plants are so little? We talked about why the slugs eat our plants, that didn't make sense to her, shoot... it doesn't make sense to me either, actually it just makes me mad! :) So we now have in our LITTLE garden, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, squash, herbs and Angie's all time favorite....PUMPKINS! I love the time that I get to teach Angie about nature as we work in the garden. I wish I could do more gardening but...it is too tough on my back!
After that we had dinner and by evening, my back was hurting really bad. I was going to write in my blog last night but I was in too much pain, not sure that I could have written anything very inspiring! It is frustrating, knowing that when I do get to do SOMETHING...that it has to come with such a great cost ( pain ).
But I still say it was a picture perfect day, I was able to do my motivational speaking ( which I love ), plant a garden with my granddaughter, be out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine, and be with my family...it doesn't get much better than that. So even though the day ended in a LOT of PAIN, I was grateful for the things I was able to do!
