I didn't do my specific exercises yesterday however I got a lot of walking and climbing in and out of my daughter's low car.
Usually this is a difficult day for me because 7 years ago today my husband entered Heaven to be with his mother, dad, sister, and our 8 week old baby. He has lot of relatives there to enjoy a reunion with. We had several dogs that crossed the Rainbow bridge to greet him. I'll bet he is growing tomatoes for God. He grew them every year and sold enough to pay for his garden. This was something he really enjoyed. When he fell and broke his hip, the tomatoes were his therapy. Working out in his garden nearly every day helped his hip heal very fast.
He fell and broke his hip on May 8, 2002 (our oldest granddaughter's 16th birthday) and on July 27, he walked our oldest daughter down the isle at a campground without his walker. It was more like her walking him.....LOL He was so determined to walk with out his walker.
We had everything planned in case he had problems. I brought him up to the end of the isle in the van, my brother stayed near him, and Maria held him up while he escorted her down the isle. God stayed right there with us that day. It had been raining but the rain stopped long enough for the ceremony. It was blistering hot that day. The icing on her cake melted letting the cake slip sideways a little.
Many good and funny memories of that week end campout. Lots of family there as we had our reunion that week end too.
Blessings to all
