Starting dance lessons with gal friends tonight

Monday, September 05, 2011

We found a place that gives dance lessons --slow lessons---the lessons will be a walk through for 3 lessons then dance the 4th lesson----I am not ready to dance with a male so that is a good thing that I will be able to avoid that.----It is another way to get exercise, hear music, and share getting through this pain with my new friends that are going through this too.
I am eating too much again and I know that I have problem gained weight--there is a lot of food get-to-gethers and a lot of pain sharing & support. I am realizing that I need to pay attention to what I am putting in my mouth. I know this sounds like a given to most of you.
But I am still walking in a fog--laughing --talking---yet numb inside.

My problem is eating when I am alone at night and trying to avoid the sadness. The filling in the dance lessons should help address that problem.

One great thing is I continue my exercise---eat my fruit and veggies, drink water and I am not isolating.

God wants the best for me---now I need to do the best for me

Thanks for stopping in-~~~~Mary emoticon

    It sounds like you are doing just fine. We can't expect to much when we are in so much pain. I remember the early years and I just didn't care. It sounds like you are getting to the place where you are really considering a change for the healthier.

    Hi Mary
What a beautiful blog. It is so good that you are starting dance lessons. Each activity that you try helps that lonely feeling that you have. It takes time to heal, and I think you are really working hard to be able to laugh and talk.
As you said God wants the best for you, and you are doing your best that you can for you right now.
Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Mary,

That sounds like a fun time. Did that years ago with a bunch of friends from my neighborhood. It was was disco was popular. The ladies all signed up together since the hubbies didn't want any part of it. We had a great time.

You're so right about food get-togethers. You have to make a real conscious effort to everything you try and it can be difficult. That fact that your expressing it tells me that you heading on the right track. I know you can do this.

I understand the lonely nights. The busier you can keep yourself, the better it will be for you

    As I sit here shucking corn for a steamed corn dish, I will be eating two ears. I can feel you and I understand why you went away. Have a nice day.

LET GO --LET GOD -- HE can and will if HE is asked---ASK



Thursday, September 01, 2011

speech made by Benjamin Franklin in 1787 during Convention for forming a Constitution for the United States.

"Except the Lord build the house..." In the beginning of the contest with Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayers in this room for the Divine protection. Our prayers, sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favour. To that kind Providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten this powerful Friend? Or do we imagine we no longer need His assistance?

I have lived for a long time (eighty-one years); and the longer I live the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured, sir, in the sacred writings, that "Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall proceed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel: we shall be divided by our little, partial, local interests; our prospects will be confounded; and we ourselves shall become a reproach and a by-word down to future ages.

And what is worse, mankind may hereafter, from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing government by human wisdom, and leave it to chance, war, or conquest. I therefore beg leave to move that henceforth prayers, imploring the assistance of Heaven and its blessing on our deliberations, be held in this assembly every morning before we proceed to business; and that one or more of the clergy of this city be requested to officiate in that service.

    The writing and expressions of all the "founding fathers" of the U.S. are so eloquent and beautifully formed. Not all of them thought of themselves as Christians (e.g. Jefferson) but all had deep abiding faith in some form of God. And of course, idealism and a deep commitment to creating the structures for government that could last beyond their time. Despite all the problems, and all the deep divisions, contradictions (e.g. slavery) and conflicts over time, we are still here. The Civil War for instance, came close to destroying the country; somehow we recovered. That is wondrous!

Thank you for sharing this. Sometimes I think that perhaps our leaders should go back to school and study the history of the founding of our beautiful country. Somewhere, we have lost the ideas that made us so great.
Again, I thank you for sharing this.

Went with Friends
to their church supper and dance--I danced every dance that I could by myself
We had a fun time--all of us are widows. Everytime I stopped dancing I would tear u p because the songs were the ones that My Husband and I danced to when we were young, I know that he was looking down and was happy that I was smiling.
How silly we ladies were--anything to keep each other smiling!!

I tried to remember--"Dance like no one is watching!"
