October is a special month for Grayden and I. I've written about it every October since I've been blogging. Both of our birthdays are this month and it's also our 56th anniversary! We are so blessed to have each other! Being with the one you love so long we both bought each other the same anniversary card!
This has been a very trying time for Grayden and I as he has had health issues since we returned home from our World Voyage the last of May. Our area is suffering from lack of specialists that Grayden needed to see. We had to wait until September 15th before seeing the proper doctor and get a diagnosis. Then tests and tests and more tests. Boy are we tired. I've always wanted to keep things positive here, but this situation has been less than positive for our mental health--more me than my sweetheart...He is now on meds that are helping him immensely. His neuropathy has lessened and surgery is scheduled for next week for severe carpal tunnel in both hands. They preform one hand and then wait until that heals and then the other.
Between tests Grayden invited me to Williamsburg for a respite away and celebrate our blessings. If you have read here for very long you know we go to Colonial Williamsburg whenever we can. Here are some photos from our time there.
Walking every morning was good for our souls. We never tire of our visits to this unique living museum.
Wonderful Autumn sweater weather greeted us daily. Even on the one rainy day we had we walked the area with our umbrellas.
The handsome dovescote behind the George Wythe house is ready for residents. Doves or pigeons would certainly love it here.
Relaxing and recentering was exactly what we needed. Colonial Williamsburg was good medicine for us. It was a lovely week and one that we will always remember fondly.
