Friday Smile - Week 88

Morning Folks

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.

Hello Elizabeth,
So good to hear that your Husbands back is feel better. A great way to start a wonderful morning is a good nights sleep. I'm glad that he is able to do that now. Poor guy.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
Blessings to you both. : )

Pleased he is back to normal Elizabeth, he needs to be careful though, I know how he feels as I have a bad back, such a nucience it is too, flares up as and when for no apparent reason, so I do hope he takes care, sending you both a hug.

Hi Elizabeth,

So glad your husband's pain has disappeared! He does have a lovely smile, to match yours.

Hi elizabeth so half your husband is feeling better not sleeping because of pain is horrible. Let's hope he does as he should and paces himself

Brilliant, happy photograph Elizabeth. I know what he has been going through, my lumbar discs are degenerating and have been since I was 23, but where before the pain was intermittent, it has been permanent since Oct. last year!

Coming from a family of back-pain sufferers, I can appreciate how he feels to be free of it. In the photo he has such a beaming smile, I am sure everyone who reads this is smiling back at him. Kate xx
