OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

I have a time tracking my diet and my activities - but have learned that I do so much better when i take the time to. The two things i have the most struggle with are drinking enough water and getting to the club where i have a membership. And that i pay for each month!! I am continually resolving to do better and do for a while and then just get distracted by other things.

Not going to set any goals for the rest of this month - am just going to post what i do each day and see where i end up.

For Christmas

May you have joy
in the mad rush
of preparation;

May you know peace
in the tiny margins
of time around
the busy days;

May you have star-shine
in clear night skies
for looking at;

May you have silence
now and then;

and, above all

beyond all else

May you have love
to give
and to receive.

(Elizabeth Searle Lamb)

Merry Christmas!

Recipe for a Merry Christmas

To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
Pour love over all in generous measure,
And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

~ Barbara Burrow ~
