Another day, Another way--heck, I better do SOMETHING!!

Friday, February 17, 2012

OK, I have been eating a little too much--people were cooking for me--NICE--except I was eating it all---green beans With BACON AND THE GREASE--french bread WITH THE BUTTER---all kinds of down home cooking--biscuits with enough butter to drip out of it--OK YES AND sweets enough to be sick to me tummy quite often
STOPPING THE EXCESS EATING NOW-----HOW?????
For starters filled frig with healthy frozen meals
Change volunteer place-- remembering "it takes what it takes?"
Be understanding of myself
I am all grown up and whatever I choose to do is great!!
I can exercise and walk all day if that is what I want to do
I can just enjoy my yard all day if I want to
I have asparagus coming up nice and green now--liking that!!
My fava beans have blossoms love it
The greens are beautiful
The beets are on a growing spurt
I LIKE IT ALL~~~ THATS FUN TO ME.

I wish you a warm day and a happy smile!!!!

I keep this in mind when I am driving---I try to remember that I too make mistakes.

INTERESTING ARTICLE ON GRIEF

Monday, February 13, 2012

If you are grieving over a spouse as I am or maybe some other close family member or friend, there will always be "well-meaning" people who will try to comfort you and say absolutely the most "stupid thing" or the"wrong thing."

    I think other people that say something stupid or the wrong thing, really do care and just want to comfort you, but really don't know what to say, and so they inadvertently say something stupid or wrong.

I don't believe for a second that is because they don't care, it is because they do care and feel they should say something, when actually, saying nothing at all might be better.

I know I ache for your pain and wish I could do something or say something to make you feel better, and I hope I have never said anything stupid or wrong that only made it worse:(

I wish you only the best!

    I lost my husband last May and I can totally relate to what the article says. I often find myself hiding from people rather than face some stupid comment. Mostly I think to myself "do they even really care". No...they have no idea!.

    Very good article. I think part of the problem is the feeling those not grieving get that we "need" to say something important and relevant. In fact, a hug is more than sufficient. Just being there, quietly offering a hand or an ear, is plenty.

    Thanks for posting.. it is hard sometimes to know what to say to someone that is grieving. I hope I have not been thoughtless in any way.
Much love

I can dream of the warm sandy beaches anyway--!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dream of things to come.

We are afraid. Come to the edge, he

And they flew..."

EVER JUST FEEL LIKE THROWING IN THE TOWEL?????

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

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

    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
