Requesting Prayers for my Wife

Today after work, we went out shopping for groceries (she's been begging for me to take her for about a week). I told her I have enough trouble pushing a shopping cart through a crowded supermarket, much less pushing her in a wheelchair at the same time!

So I finally gave in. I was imagining her getting about halfway down the 2nd aisle, and getting winded and needing to go home -- or some other emergency. On top of that, I forgot to bring the (detachable) leg rests for the wheelchair -- and I figured she'd get tuckered out having to either hold up her legs, or scoot Flintstones' style through the store... But -- surprisingly (or maybe NOT surprisingly, based on everything else she's done) -- she made it through the whole store with no problems! (The only problem was, she loaded up the cart with so much stuff that we barely had room for it all at home.)

Back to the wheelchair part of the story. Normally I wheel her out the back door, down the ramps, then around front to the garage. And Maverick goes ballistic, thinking Mommy's going away for another three months... But today Steph was ready to try walking down the step to the garage. She did a great job (holding my hands for support)! All while Mavi lay unsuspecting on the back patio! So normally in the house, we have the leg rests off the wheelchair, and Steph just scoots around with foot power. So that's how the wheelchair was configured when I loaded it in the back of the SUV, not thinking. Turns out it was better without the leg rests. More room in the back for groceries, and it made the wheelchair more compact for getting around in the store.

So, not only was this Steph's first shopping trip in over five months -- she also wore her wedding ring for the first time in over five months!

Little steps of progress every day! Hallelujah!!


(P.S. -- She hadn't worn her rings because her fingers had been swollen...)

Yes Sir

With God all things are possible!

Let's design her a recovery piece, profits be damned, I'll take care of you. What's her favorite color?
I don't know whether to thank you or scold you!

Well, her favorite color is probably hot pink, but she said she'd rather have something more neutral. Then she was saying maybe blue sapphire or amethyst.

Will have to discuss at a later time...

PM me when you find the time... I've got a few Yago gulch sapphires that are gorgeous and very deserving to commemorate her return to normalcy.

Blue​

This spiritual color is also the color of the sky and sea. Blue is an important healing color as it is linked with calm and serenity. It helps lower blood pressure and can reduce rapid heart rate. Blue is relaxing for the mind and body. It is associated with organs like eyes, ears and nose and involved with the senses of smell, sight and sound.

I like it, but don't forget....

"You're my boy, Blue!"
