Weather Delightfull and the Country Roads

Cool mornings and very warn days
and it seems like time is flying by, everything growing, weeding never stops
but all is  green and so beautiful
must have baby rabbits in flower bed by screen porch as seeing them and hopefully
Callie does not.

Seems I have developed a pinched nerve in shoulder or neck,
a lot of pain and slight headache

Therapy yesterday, massage, heat and I am doing the same at home,
hopefully it will leave soon.   I mentioned I was having difficulty
getting in and out of car and seems I have not been doing this correctly.
Hopefully after instructions I can do it correctly and also that insurance
will ok more treatments for this one as they really help and hopefully
slow the progression of what is going on in this body.

Having difficulty excepting all that is going on health wise
but thankful for so much and so weary of sharing about it.

Today, traveling down the country roads, so many memories, love this area
and wish at this time did not need help as they are doing all I love to do..
I pass newly planted tobacco, wheat that is ready to harvest, newly cut rolls of hay, Queen Ann's Lace (always wanted and not growing here by my woods, pass my old home- 16 years and my youngest grew up there and then on to several homes before returning to this much loved land
and building a small home at the edge of the woods 8 years ago.

As I drive these country roads
memories surface on their own, some so happy, some so sad and wish some could be deleted
Memories surface of  four different lifestyles, growing up, working in the corporate world, married
with much loved children and then on my own
for the last almost 40 years.

Has it only been about 9  years since this picture was taken with one of my young grand children
my Caitlin

Here is both of them
the home I built in Nashville, Sylvan Park
across from my son.
Then he closed business because of  recession, relocated to Thailand
and this one
relocated back to the country.
Sold home
but because of economy
it sure was not a good time.
Now Nashville is booming again...

Bren, thank you so much for visiting. My son teaches in Thailand
and so much learned from him on his frequent visits. This one on the
mat several times a day...

Your images of flowers and the country are always a welcome gift of beauty for me, but your greatest gift to life is the children and grand children that you have given life too. They seem to be people of grace and thoughtfulness and their moments with you clearly refresh and vitalize them. What more can a woman strive for.
I hope your pain diminishes with the therapy.

PatK, Thank you, your words bless this one.

Good morning early from the Edge of the Atlantic off the east coast. I love your photos. Sorry to hear about continued pain. I think of you often and how inspired I am by your thoughts.
