Team Natural Outdoors _ Camp Fire Talk _ A childs prayer

Posted by: oldmandekle Nov 21 2017, 04:44 PM

I posted back in Sept about my grand daughter praying for me . She was asking the blessing for supper when she interjected "and please let Papa's boo boo get better so he can run and play with us ". Last night that prayer was answered. The kids were running , playing chase as they love to do when I thought WHY NOT. I got up off the couch and chased those little munchkins all about the "circle". Our place has a passage from the great room to the kitchen , a doorway to the dining room and a passage back tio the great room making a great circle track for the kids game of chase. My wife Emily 's mouth fell open, Chris cheered us on while Heater watched in amazement. I was :running" behind the kids and they were squeeling with joy. The first time in their life I was able to join in on an activity like "chase". My knees held up , no pain although I am a tad stiff today. No one outside my family knows the difficulty I had just walking a year ago. However , today is a different story. Both knees are new and even though I have some leg and hip pain I was on cloud 9 muself. Playing with my grandkids has been a dream that came true . I thank GOD for directing the doctors hand as both surgeries went very well. I am getting stronger and look forward to trying to hunt quail . Maybe next season. At any rate , I feel blessed to have seen and felt prayers answered on my behalf. . .

That is such an amazing story Mike, thanks for sharing. I can only imagine how great that felt to play with you grand kids like that. So glad to hear your health has improved enough to make that possible. Stuff like that is really the very best stuff in life.
