I am glad it is the end of the day---I just want to give up. Little things are overwhelming today---worked hard to feed the hungry--that was good--laughed --- met with friends--yet it all seemed so empty without him.
Just one of those hard days--
Attitude of gratitude:
1. Grateful for my family
2. Grateful for my health
3. Grateful for my friends who put up with my ways
4. Grateful for my home
5. Grateful for my garden, such as it is
6. Grateful for my car
7. Grateful that my family believes in my ability to care for myself even if I sometimes get teary
8. Grateful that God father,son, and holy spirit are always with me
9. Grateful for the book Viv gave me that I read every morning plus others
10. I am grateful that I can find laughter and am smiling
11. I am grateful for the love I have and had in my years and all to come

    Remember the good times, but don't dwell on them, you were very blessed to have had him in your life for as long you did! I love your 'gratitudes' I think those help a lot for trying to stay positive. Please, don't ever think about "throwing in the towel", there's still so much more living you have left to do!
Vivian and I are going to walk weekdays over by Mercy Hospital on Coyle, if you would like to join us, we will park at the top of the parking garage, and meet at 10am. I have radiation at 11am, so we won't be walking to far. Vivian mentioned a park close by we can walk to and still be back in time for my appointment. What do you think? Would you like to join us:)
Will make it a sparkathon! haha

    You are a strong and confident woman. You can climb the mountain... and fly the 'towel' from the top of it.

I believe in you. emoticon

    Yes being grateful and staying positive is the best way to keep you from just throwing in the towel, Just think this too will pass. Things will get better for you ! Just be more stubbon than what is making you feel like getting rid of your towel.Tomorrow will be better. emoticon

Looking forward to the Game?

Sunday, February 05, 2012

I get too involved and excited to watch the whole game--so I try to only watch the last Half!!
Does anyone else do this??????
Wish me luck on not eating more junk-I am out of control on my eating--on a slippery slope.
I exercise yet I have a problem with the food part. Guess I need to learn to say STOP out loud and the words WALK AWAY from this sad way of dealing with pain~!!!!
Also, I will not use the EXCUSE of EMOTIONAL EATING to overeat anything.
I will go back to eating good protein, veggies, and a piece of good grain each day. I do well on this and look and feel better.

I couldn't watch the whole thing if I tried. Too many commercials and too much MUNCHING. . . Give me a cold bench seat in a local arena...with a warm jacket, a cuppa HOT COFFEE and a hot dog..
with some fresh air and friends - and high school kids in a scrimmage... that's football.


*and don't forget the high school band marching on the field.

Any miracle that Jesus did was when he was on the way somewhere and got interrupted by somebody. Make time for other people in your life.
