Joey and Rory Update: The Gift

Joey and Rory Update: The Gift

December 14, 2015

NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFDTV) - The resilience of Joey Feek continues to be an inspiration during this Christmas season.  Over the weekend, Rory Feek updated his blog ThisLifeILive.com with moving images of his wife, Joey, out of bed and happily playing with their daughter, Indiana.  The blog entry titled "A Gift" shares the moment when Joey entered the room  - after weeks spent in a hospital bed.

"That’s not as simple as it sounds," Feek writes, "when you’ve been in a hospital bed for weeks and were prepared to possibly never walk again.  But I guess the power-of-the-will is much stronger than the power of fear.  Honestly, I think Joey just got tired of listening to life going on in the rooms outside of her bedroom and tired of wondering what it would be like to be part of it… and she just had her sister Jody help her out of bed and she came out and sat down and joined in for about an hour and a half."

 Rory goes on to describe the joy Joey felt as she briefly played with their daughter, Indiana.

"A few minutes later, my wife had slid from the couch to the floor and was able to be something for Indiana that she hadn’t been able be in weeks and weeks.

She was a mama again.

Playing with and teaching sign language to her little girl, like she’d been dreaming of being able to do."

    Fair season is in the air, and beyond the fun rides and food, it's a time of building connections between consumers and the ag industry. The Arkansas Farm Bureau shows how a petting zoo bridges the gap.
