Friday Smile - Week 88
This week, like most weeks, I've had plenty to smile about but I'm only sharing this one photo today.
That smile says it all really. Six months ago my poor husband's back started to play up causing agonising painful spasms down his legs. He couldn't walk, sit and sleep because of the pain he was suffering. He's had blood tests, painkillers, physiotherapy and even an MRI scan - everything the NHS could throw at the problem has been done - but, apart from finding the cause - wear and tear on his spine - nothing seemed to help. And then suddenly this week the pain quite simply stopped! He's now sleeping soundly and life is back to normal, albeit a less active normal than before - the advice he's been given is to slow done and pace himself. Mindful of this advice he is slowly finishing that paint job he started all those months ago. You can see from that beaming smile that he's a very happy teddy indeed and I'm delighted to see him so happy too :)
By the way, that's not white paint he is covering the walls with - it's a light shade of sage green which looks so much brighter and better than the gunmetal grey that was there before.
I hope you have something equally good to smile about today and if you do, it would be lovely if you link it over at Annie's A Stitch In Time. As she says, share a smile ... make the world a happier place :)
Looking forward to seeing what makes you smile.
