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.

Is that over the counter, or a prescription?

Thank you for the sweet message and my Spark Goodie of beautiful flowers.

I will give it some thought about the new adventure. I am having to concentrate a lot on my eating right now since they discovered a large hiatal hernia when I had my C Scan. I have been doing research online and have found several sites that explains it better. Doctor not concerned, but I want to take care of it, and not have the indigestion I have been having.
Have a great day, and have some running to do this morning, have taken my sheets off to do them, and comforter. Love ya and thanks again for all of your support.

The most effective way to fight food cravings is: go for a walk. Taking a brisk, 15-minute walk can curb even the strongest cravings, according to the journal Appetite. That’s because walking can distract the mind. It also reduces stress and boredom – which are two big triggers for cravings.

What Is Life?

They say it’s from B to D. . . from Birth ‘til Death.
So what’s between B and D?
It’s a C.
So what is C?
It’s Choice.
Our life is a matter of choices.
To live well . . . choose well.

“If you were given only one choice: To choose or not to choose - which would you choose?”

“It is the big choices we make that set our direction. It is the smallest choices we make that get us to the destination.”
