A different road to travel.

Those who have followed me for awhile, know I tend to be chipper and positive.
The death of my oldest son, in May, has put me on a different road.
One I had not planned on, with many valleys.
As an artist, I have always enjoyed the shadows for that is where you find the secret joys, the ones not so obvious. A bit frightening at times, but thinking of the good keeps you going along.
The dark is also what makes the light even more amazing, bright and cheerful.Things stand ...

As an artist, I have always enjoyed the shadows for that is where you find the secret joys, the ones not so obvious. A bit frightening at times, but thinking of the good keeps you going along.
The dark is also what makes the light even more amazing, bright and cheerful.Things stand out, with contrasts. Colors dance and harmony comes to view.
As a gardener, the deeper evergreen colors are cooling and refreshing, along with the pops of a flower, not expected.
So it is with my life. I must live in the shadows, for now, with pops of amazing light.
My faith leads me through it all and grows ever stronger.
Friends and family, my little Tigger and Kenny himself, being closer than I think, are there to lean on, along the way.
Do I think about losing weight and health the same way I did?
No.
I am kind to myself, have good days and bad.
Take walks and think thoughts and pray.
Stretch for peace of mind and to feel closer to my 57 years than older.
Sometimes I feel so old now. It snaps me into drinking more water.
I know I will see Kenny again, but until then I need to take care of me, not really for myself, but for my other two children who are still living.
There are moments of light left.

Chris, I couldn't get into the group unless I joined this morning, I just went ahead and joined. Don't have the time to figure it out today, I have a couple crazy things happening here on Spark. I got the message also that a new member had joined. Me!!! LOL The laugh of the day.

Hugs and prayers. Glad that you enjoy the milk and wine lilies and so sorry that yours didn't make it.

Look at weight regain like a bad haircut, it's temporary
and will fix itself with proper care and maintenance.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” Dr. Seuss

Stick To A Routine! It's better to do less more often than more less often
These are quotes I need to remind to keep going on down the trail.
Great status Chris together we are going to cross the finish line emoticon
