Today wasn’t exactly what we had planned. There are so many things we want to do before we return to Michigan on the 12th! So waking up barely able to move or walk, with some of my highest pain levels, was a disappointment today. Pete is always uncomplaining, though, and does everything he can to help me, even as I am much less than gracious on these days and do more whining than anything else.
I’d like to say that I took the opportunity to spend the day in Bible study and prayer. But if I did say that, it would be a lie. Other than an hour or so of worship with my keyboard and my ukulele I spent the day working on my blog, mostly. Yesterday’s post about my birthday fun took many hours to put together, for example, and I still had to scour social media for the Wednesday Wags post; usually I save ’em as I see ’em, but I haven’t spent much time on social media at all during this trip, so I haven’t seen ’em!
Late in the afternoon I crashed, sleeping for nearly 4 hours. My body just felt beat. I’ve been doing and going SO much more here than I do at home, and eating things I usually wouldn’t eat. And of course there is lots of rain and humidity…
But still, when I look back on this trip, I probably won’t remember days like today. I will remember my excitement for my sister and brother-in-law in moving into their new home. I will remember the beautiful scenery in this part of Kentucky. I will remember how easy it was to get around in our little trailer, with no more than 10 steps to get anywhere, and usually much less. And mostly I will remember my days with my husband, as we do so many things together, and spend hours and hours on the road with each other exploring, and all of the new places and experiences we are sharing together. And I’m reminded of the things that are more important than the pain and immobility that has resulted in a couple of “down days” but which I likely won’t even consider when I think back to this trip and what it has all meant to me. And to us.
