There is so much going through my head right now I don't know where to begin or what to even write about! I know it's Missionary Wednesday, but I'm gonna postpone it for a day.

Last week was a rather difficult week for me as I strained my back and ended up on the couch
on my back for three days. Dave had to take two of those days off to take care of me. Isn't he amazing? I had a difficult time walking again and had to revert to the use of my cane for most of the week. Since then I have had a more difficult time getting around again and still have to spend a great deal of time laying down to relieve some of the pain in my hips and back. Some days I wish I could trade in my body for a new one, but then I'm just thankful to be alive and breathing! Today I woke up with half of my face being numb! It is so weird to only feel half your face!!!

In spite of the fact that I have been in so much pain I have been able to do a lot of cross stitch and crocheting. It is amazing what handcrafts can do to help relieve the pain that I am in. I always tell people that the fast I crochet is reflective of how much pain I am in, the faster I crochet the less pain I am in. I read an article once that said that crocheting was a relaxing hobby and helped with pain management and I can testify that it is true!!

Last Friday the local British Elementary School had a Mardi Gras parade down our street. They were so stinkin' cute!!
