Whelp! Tomorrow is the big day! The opening of the Bartlesville Farmer’s Market for the 2015 season. 🙂
I confess, I have mixed emotions. Oh, I’m very happy and excited and
looking forward to it. Don’t get me wrong. … But not at all sure how I’m going to hold up physically and mentally throughout the morning. This will be a new stretch for me, but then that’s all of what Life has been about these last months since the stroke. God has been with me in the thing from the beginning, and with me in every new necessity along the way. He’s not gonna drop me tomorrow. So while I have mixed emotions and wonderings, I don’t have any fretting or real concern.
The part I think I wonder about most is all the questions that may come as people find out about me and the stroke. That’s always been the hardest part for me. We were joking that I could just wear a sign that says, “I had a stroke, but I’m good. It’s okay.” That might be simpler in the long run than having to answer the same questions 500x. Lol. 🙂
Always before, each Saturday, I would sorta make up an arrangement for our display, but that’s not wise now, as it takes me much longer to think through things. So, in order to avoid that stress, we brought our tables into our living room a couple days ago and figured out how we wanted them to look. Then I took pictures of the arrangement which will help Jeff to know where things should go. Our daughter (who makes a number of things for JsCrossing) and son-in-law plan to be down there too; complete with adorable, crowd-drawing baby, of course. 🙂
So… enjoy the pics now…. and come to see us in person tomorrow. 🙂 Market opens at 8:00 am and closes at 11:30 am. Hope to see you there!!
