Ready for "another" change of life

Was time to update this since the last update started out that I have been on SP for over a year...........well is closer to 5 years now. Procrastination seems to be an obstacle. OK now...........when I joined SP I was heading into the 170's and pre-diabetic ...........my entire family diabetics and on insulin. Seen first hand what can happen if this disease is not taken seriously. That is not to say I have my nose to the grindstone all the time but rather I am a work in progress, thank you ...

Seen first hand what can happen if this disease is not taken seriously. That is not to say I have my nose to the grindstone all the time but rather I am a work in progress, thank you Lord! I have managed to lose some weight and have had set backs like surgeries and illness, and yes just plain laziness. I am responsible for what I have become and what I can be. With help of this wonderful site and even more wonderful people that I have met on this journey I hope to be around a few more years so might as well make them as healthy as possible. Would appreciate a "boot" along the way and if I can give a helping hand to you along the way I will gladly do so. We can do this together!!!

A Friend's Greeting
I'd like to be the sort of friend that
you have been to me;
I'd like to be the help that
you've been always glad to be;

I'd like to mean as much to you
each minute of the day
As you have meant, old friend of mine,
to me along the way.

I'd like to do the big things and
the splendid things for you,
To brush the gray from out your skies
and leave them only blue;

I'd like to say the kindly things that
I so oft have heard,
And feel that I could rouse your soul
the way that mine you've stirred.

I'd like to give you back the joy
that you have given me,
Yet that were wishing you a need
I hope will never be;

I'd like to make you feel as rich as I,
who travel on
Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to
lean upon.

I'm wishing at this time that I
could but repay
A portion of the gladness that
you've strewn along my way;

And could I have one wish this year,
this only would it be:
I'd like to be the sort of friend
that you have been to me.
- Edgar A Guest -

Wishing you a very wonderful weekend my friend.
Pat

Anatomy of a True Friend

Eyes:
Will always see you for the way you really are, your true self.

Ears:
Will always have them open to listen.

Mouth:
To always tell you the truth and give their opinions, tell you when you mess up or do something good.

Shoulders:
Will offer when you need one to cry on and will be your strength when you find it hard to carry yourself. Will always let you lean on them.

Heart:
To love you for who you are and not judge. Will always have a place there for you.

Hands:
To hold yours when you need a little guidance, to lend when you need help, and to help you up when you may fall.

Arms:
Will always make you feel comfortable in them and to offer hugs when you need one. Will try to warm when you are cold.

Feet:
To walk with you throughout your life and be the best friend they can be.

Thanks for your comment on my blog Thelma. Death is difficult enough - but suicide ..... there are no words.

Hugs,

The Last Time

From the moment you hold your baby in your arms,
you will never be the same....
You might long for the person you were before,
When you have freedom and time,
And nothing in particular to worry about.
You will know tiredness like you never knew it before,
And days will run into days that are exactly the same,
Full of feedings and burping,
Nappy changes and crying,
Whining and fighting,
Naps or a lack of naps,
It might seem like a never-ending cycle.
But don’t forget …
There is a last time for everything.
There will come a time when you will feed
your baby for the very last time.
They will fall asleep on you after a long day
And it will be the last time you ever hold your sleeping child.
One day you will carry them on your hip then set them down,
And never pick them up that way again.
You will scrub their hair in the bath one night
And from that day on they will want to bathe alone.
They will hold your hand to cross the road,
Then never reach for it again.
They will creep into your room at midnight for cuddles,
And it will be the last night you ever wake to this.
One afternoon you will sing “the wheels on the bus”
and do all the actions,
Then never sing them that song again.
They will kiss you goodbye at the school gate,
The next day they will ask to walk to the gate alone.
You will read a final bedtime story and wipe your last dirty face.
They will run to you with arms raised for the very last time.
The thing is, you won’t even know it’s the last time
Until there are no more times.
And even then, it will take you a while to realize.
So while you are living in these times,
remember there are only so many of them
and when they are gone, you will yearn for just one more day of them.
For one last time.
