Spring Time---Therapy for the Blues
What a beautiful day the LORD sent yesterday. The wind was blowing just enough for Ellie to fly her kite. (The kite was her reward for completing her good behavior chart and quickly working to complete her catheter at school.) The temperatures were just warm enough to be comfortable in long sleeves.
I think I've found a new physical therapy for Ellie. She was able to keep her balance very well, while holding onto the kite string and using the tension to counter-balance when needed. She even "ran" for a short period. Next time, I hope I can get video of her running.
I was even thinking...since it's always windy at the beach, perhaps I could get the insurance company to agree that kite flying is the best PT, and we could get them to pay for frequent trips to the beach....well, it's a thought.
And, I couldn't have staged this picture if I tried. I clicked the photo at the exact time the kite fell from the sky.
My Daddy broke his wrist yesterday, too. He'll see the orthopedist on Thursday. The good thing is I spent time with my mama and my daddy and my sister and my niece and my grandma and my aunt.
Do all Grandmas have a junk food...I mean snack...drawer? Even Caleb wrote about Grandma's snack drawer in his journal in elementary school. When you go to Grandma's house, you have to open it up.....just to see. They chose marshmellows of all things. Can you tell?
And, last...I just liked this photo...sort of an optical illusion...as if the kite was in the tree...but I loved the beautiful blue sky, the dark green of the pine needles and the colors of the kite. Isn't it amazing how God created all things...even the "little" things like white light that can be separated into a spectrum of colors?
I hope you all find a good reason to enjoy family and God's creation this week!
