April 21 Walk in the Park

Sunday, April 21, 2013

It was a really nice, sunny, warm day today after a week of cold. Cassie and I stopped at the park on the way home from church today. We walked the mile around the park. On one side I noticed that there is a pull-up place. Now, I've never been able to do pull-ups, even when I weighed 110, so I knew I couldn't now, but it was something different to do. I thought maybe just pulling on there might be some strength training for my arms. So I did a few pulls on it. Then we continued around to where there is something for stretching and I did a couple stretches on it. I was surprised that I could reach my right foot up and lean forward with no problem once it was up there (bent knee). That was nice to find out.

This morning I got a text from my friend that her son was going home from the hospital today. He had surgery to remove a tumor from his brain just Friday afternoon. Praise the Lord for his quick recovery.

    It's always nice to discover you can do something you didn't think you could do. Glad you enjoyed your walk in the park.

    I am so glad your friend's son is doing well from the surgery. One of my dear friends, her best friend, had surgery last Friday to remove a cancerous brain tumor. It is hard for everyone, including friends. God bless you. emoticon
