Let’s Get Real
Well, I survived a longer day than I’ve experienced in a couple years. It’s not that I did a whole lot physically. But, even on Sundays I’m only active for maybe four hours tops. A few hours ago my Fitbit buzzed and said congrats you’ve been active for 7 out 7 hours which has never happened the past two years. Those things only register you active if you’re doing anything outside of your normal activity for more than ten minutes per hour. Go ahead and list me as just pure exhausted. I’ll be spending the rest of my evening in a tub of hot water soaking the pain away.
The good news is I survived and I was able to show my son support. They won 5th place in the lower state championship and will participate in the overall state championship next week. In division 4A they beat out every band from Charleston or Dorchester County. So, I guess you can call Colleton County the 4A Low Country Band Champions. No matter what we’re proud of all their hard work.
Now, my wife having to put up with me all day is a whole other story. I’m sure she wished several times that she could take me back to some assisted living home or shove me out a moving car. I’m not only a terrible passenger driver, but I’m a terrible patient when I don’t feel good. I can promise you the good Lord will give her a much bigger mansion in Heaven for staying by my side. As always I appreciate all the love, support and prayers. And, for the person reading this that lives with chronic pain please know I’m praying for you.
“…Prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.” (Ephesians 6:18)(The Message)
