Default Wife's Last Buck?

Name:  image.jpg
Views: 1344
Size:  137.4 KB

My wife says that this is her last buck. I hope it is not and that she has many more coming. A little background on my wife, she first showed symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis when she was 27, which was 40 years ago. She was definitively diagnosed when she was 40. Every day is a struggle for her and she never complains. Now to the deer, I had marked this buck as a must go this year and told her I wanted her to take him. She got up early three mornings in a row (she is not a morning person) before she could get a clear shot at the buck, we would see him but there were always other deer either in front or behind him. Finally he made a mistake and got clear of all the other deer and I gave her the go ahead to take the shot (she used a rifle as we are MLD) she takes the shot and she sees all the other deer scatter I could hear the disappointment in her voice as she said "I missed him", I however was watching him through my binos and knew he dropped in his tracks. She was one happy hunter.

Good for her. Congratulations on a great shot. Unfortunately she and you have been given a terrible cross to bear. A prayer that Yahweh gives you both the courage and faith to walk whatever path He puts before you.
