It Calls to Me...

Thursday, September 4, 2014

We now resume our regularly scheduled programming, already in progress...

It's tough to write when your back hurts. It's tough to write after a shot to cure that pain suddenly causes all sorts of side effects that throw you for a double loop when you were not expecting. Most of all, it's tough to write about gardening and all things Bird Back 40, when the thought of bending over for a mundane task like picking an heirloom tomato scared the bejesus out of me.

But -- time does eventually heal most wounds. And when I finally began to feel somewhat normal again, this space called. I haven't written in quite a bit. This is my own personal journal after all. When you start jotting down notes here and there, well, you begin to miss it. I supposed I missed it.

Can You Name the Mystery Apple?
But, in this time that I've chosen to reflect and heal, I've learned quite a bit. I've met new friends. I've discovered new adventures that call to me. I've even discovered a new variety of apple and lilac that may find a home one day on the Bird Homestead.

But -- most of all -- I've missed you, old friend. You've been with me for a very long time. I'm not quite ready to see you go just yet.

Please don't get discouraged. Healing from back pain takes lots of time. I've been there and done that and so can you.

Yay! Glad to see you are back. Chronic pain is not fun...back pain is the worst for everyone involved. Prayers for you both and a whole recovery!
