Sunday afternoon of Post #9 I started getting really sick - I had a flare-up of my rhuematoid arthritis that sent me to my knees! It was so funny because I thought I was "sick" sick, ya know? But, as Sunday turned into Monday and Monday turned into Tuesday, and I added everything up, I realized that that was what it was - I think it's time for me to go see my R.A. doc again!
I'm home from my Great Adventure and I feel fine except for being exhausted from driving home and plan on unpacking my trunk, well, real soon!
Before I show you the amazing pics I took on the way home, let me tell you how God took care of me during this R.A. flare-up......
First, my sister-in-law, Eileen, where I was staying when it happened, was so wonderful to me. She rubbed my shoulders at least four times - working on knots that were like bricks and it helped so much!
My other angel is my cousin, Melinda. She lives in Texas like me and when she called on Monday and found out how bad off I was, she flew to Ohio and drove back with me. She, with her wonderful husband, Emil's, support, dropped everything and flew up on Tuesday evening and we started driving home on Wednesday.
God takes such good care of me!
As we drove home, I told her all about one of my favorite places on the drive up and that was Shreveport, Louisianna. . .this cemetary in the inner city, to be specific.
A row of late 1800 "cottages" in the slums of Shreveport.
Shreveport Revisited is more than pictures of the cemetary and some 1800 "cottages" set down in the middle of the slum area, but I'll leave that for my next post.
Let me leave you at the end of this, The Great Backroads Adventure, with this little pearl of wisdom.....
Make sure you're loving what you do, being nicer than necessary and embracing your family.
