My 3rd appointment with Dr. Hall and 8 months since my shoulder surgery I wish she had done.

Well, it’s a good thing I didn’t realize a cortisone shot was going to be suggested ahead of time! Continue reading

Happy 9th birthday to Sofia

Sofia dressSo this sponsorship thing has not really gone like I’d imagined it would. In the almost 2 years since we’ve sponsored Sofia, we have received 2 or 3 fill in the blank letters from her.  “My favorite color is brown” kind of thing.  I feel I don’t really know her at all and I’m not sure she gets the individual gifts we’ve sent for her in the past. So this year we just did the extra monetary birthday gift and will say an extra prayer for her and her family today on her birthday.  I guess I kind of hoped for a relationship of some kind.  I hope she knows we think of her often and really does get the letters and gifts.

Maybe it is because she is young or maybe it is because she lives in such a remote area, but we’ll keep sponsoring as long as we are able and will keep her in our prayers.

Do you sponsor a child thru Compassion Child? What is your experience?

Historic Johnson Farms, WaterFALLing in HSF, shoulder@6 months and Florence

 

I think I’ve been to Historic Johnson Farms three times now but the first two were during their spring festival event. It’s open when the schools are open to the public to walk around for free and I met a photographer friend there to walk and shoot.  Continue reading

Simply WOW

I didn’t plan on missing all of my high school class reunion events but we’d already missed the water release once and I really, really wanted to see it and I thought I’d have time for both. The dam water release at High Falls at Lake Glenville on the West Fork Tuckasegee River near Cashiers is opened as a recreational water release just a handful of times each year. This year it fell on our anniversary which we missed because it was too soon after my shoulder surgery and it was released again on my birthday… Serendipitous? I thought so!High Falls timelapse (Large)-sm
