Know My Own Strength

This week has been very interesting. My husband Steve hurt his back at work. In order for us to go on vacation next week I had to take his place, Now for some this would be nor big deal. But......we own a Landscaping business in Florida. So I donned my work gear and headed out yesterday morning with our 13 year old Caleb and prepared for the worst. I just didn't know how we would do. Caleb had worked with his Dad but I had not mowed in years.
We got to our 1st job and there was a limb down. So we had to saw it out of the tree and lay it in the yard for later. Then we got to work. In 4 hours we finished 6 lawns! We were both amazed and tired. It was a nice day here. It stayed under 70 until 11:00. We came home to a very happy Steve and jumped into the pool.
Now we can go on vacation! We are paddeling down the Suwanee river for 2 days and hiking to Stephen Foster park another. We look forward to camping, hanging with friends and , now that the work is done
I didn't know my own strength.......I am grateful!
