Knee Day

June 17, 2014

For some family time on Father’s day, we moved another fence.  Squaring out the property and supplying our ‘massive’ (3) growing herd with more grass to eat.herdpicmWe were anxious to get this done prior to ‘knee day’.  Team Offspring were ‘invited’ to spend some quality time with us moving the fence, after all, it was only going to take us 30 minutes or so….3 hours later we were wrapping it up.fencingpicmKnee Day arrived for My Loving Spouse with the ever constant pain in his knee and for me anxiety pains in my stomach.  I know, I know, they do these knees everyday, it is no big deal….but…they don’t do it to My Loving Spouse everyday and so my stomach pains showed up.

My Loving Spouse was in good hands and off for the operation.  It was then that the ‘parade’ began, a visual expression that I/we are not alone in this journey called ‘life’, as God placed people beside me all morning.  The first a dear friend who was leaving an appointment, then a friend who’d called that morning came bringing coffee (double yippee), a co-worker of My Loving Spouse with his family crossed our path as well and prayed for us all on the spot, as my coffee friend walked out through the hospital doors another friend from church walked in…God’s Tag Team and I was blessed.  I had known I needed to not be alone, and with Team Offspring working I sort of assumed I would be…Thank you Lord.

As for My Loving Spouse the surgery went well….and we are grateful.

    God’s love never fails, does it! So grateful you had so much support Ellen. And glad surgery went well. We will be praying for the best recovery on record for any Brit ( with an awesome wife from SoCal) ever living on a farm on Ellensburg! How’s that?:)
