I'd have to choose a butterfly (click to see a beautiful butterfly). Butterflies start out as caterpillars and undergo the most beautiful transformation. Then when they have changed, they can truly soar. I think that is a beautiful picture of our lives.
I'm not quite able to fly and soar yet, but I'm transforming in a lot of ways... and someday when this pain is gone, I will soar like a butterfly. :)
If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies. -Author Unknown
I feel like I have been run over by a truck. What a long couple of days it has been! I am still tired and sore from the trip to Sioux Falls yesterday.
This afternoon we went to Estelline for my cousin's burial. It was 82 today so it was HOT! The POTS makes me very heat intolerant, so anything over 73ish makes me feel sick. I hate heat. It was nice to see my aunt and uncle and cousins, though. :) I miss them all.
We also went to where my grandparents are buried in another part of the cemetery.
After the burial, there were refreshments at the church. I'm not sure if I have ever been in the church before, but we used to rent the house right next door to it right before we moved to town here, so it was strange to be back in that area.
While we were sitting at the church, my aunt Betty Mae told us about this Memorial Park that was built a year ago. It's a memorial for all the veterans that have lived in Estelline. My grandpa fought in WWII, so his name is on there. Of course, we had to go see it after we left the church! I hope you will look at the pictures, because it is really cool. Click to view the pictures! This is so neat.
We got home around 6:30, I think. I am wiped out and in so much pain. Like, I literally scream out in pain when I get out of bed. :(
Two more busy days (have two things going on tomorrow and two on Thursday) and then I am going to just relax all weekend. I hope I can make it through these two days without having to cancel.. but if the pain gets any worse, I may have to.
I am wiped out so I am going to go read some blogs and pass some time until bedtime. Be sure to look at the pictures! :)
