Well this is sort of personal but I will share. I have a son with autism. He can put a smile in your face on any of your worst days. We receive services thur the state to help him out. He had a one-on-one that was with him for 3 years. He grew close to her as did our family. A few months ago she decided to go out of town for a month. We decided to wait on her...not knowing she may not come back,(Boy you talking about living and learning.) emoticon. We did not know that he should not have gone without services for more than 30 days. We went with another company who hired one-one-ones. Will they did not find anyone and they did not contact us in any way. ((Slack on their part and we had no idea of the 30 day rule until recently.))

We were told by his case manager that I could write and call certain high ups(as I cal them) of the state. Of course my knees were knocking and fear over came me. I prayed and fasted for God to give me the words to say that would pierce their hearts. Words of comfort came to me be still and know that I am God. I can open up doors that no man can shut. etc. This took weeks and I felt like I was David and the Giant was the state... After much prayer and writing. My faith over took my fear. His slot for services was continued. Now that to me was a Big something positive. I did this not only for my son but for me also. If God is for you who can be against you.

Small positives. hey I am still here at spark taking it one day at a time. Using my megaphone when Mr EE calls. I have had many battles with Mr. EE but I have given him a kick in the tuckus many times. I think I will compare him to the state...Look what faith in God can do. Just a reminder to me.

Positive words....

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

Well I feel I am a positive person. I can be some what of a semi-perfectionist. To me I expect more from myself especially when I stumble. Who is perfect?... except God himself. I can always encourage someone else in a red hot minute. NOTE ME... I WILL ENCOURAGE MYSELF NO MATTER HOW MY DAY WENT OR DID NOT GO. I WILL NOT FORGET THAT I AM ONLY FLESH AND BLOOD WITH A WILL TO GO FORWARD. ATTEMPT TO LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES. NEVER MAKE THE MISTAKE OF LOOKING BACK TOO LONG.I am a work in progress!!!! emoticon emoticon

    Wow, you have no idea how much I needed that! I too am a perfectionist and constantly beat myself up. You are right though. Going to borrow this from you and make it my new personal mantra!

  I really like the line:I WILL ENCOURAGE MYSELF NO MATTER HOW MY DAY WENT OR DID NOT GO.It is easy for me to tell others what they did or did not do be it right or wrong but I tend to not see myself doing those things that have brought me down in the past that is why I am here - too much not seeing myself eat all that unnessary food. "Attempt to learn from my mistakes" yes sign me up I really do want to. emoticon

My special cheer leader...

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

This is my coach some may know her as Leslie Sansone. I use her while doing walk aerobics. She really gave a sweaty workout tonight. I have a 12 y/o who loves Leslie. It does not matter when I use her dvds he always comes in the room and help me out. emoticon. He jumps right along with me... stretches and moves with the music. Well I almost gave up at the two mile marker. How could I feel like giving up when he does not? He is special needs. Sweaty and near out of breath I pressed on and completed a 3 mile aerobic workout. The help of my special cheer leader who helped me stay the course. Sure he got in my way a little. I looked him grinning ear to ear. He made me smile even though the workout was extremely hard to me. I do not usually do 3 miles but I decided I would try it out. Who gave you a helping hand today? You may be surprised if you just look back.

My college walk...

Friday, June 19, 2009

Well I took a walk around the gym in the student center today. I always said that walking did not burn enough calories and I would not do it any more. But its the one place especially in the summer when the college is next to empty and you have time to think. I think I was wrong about not walking it add some spice that I needed. I have been in a exercise slump but not any more. I had intentions of only walking for 15 min and it turned into a 45 min walk. The college has many buildings spread all over the place. My next move was to check out a library book called toe-rrific. A book that show nail designs toe nail designs. I have learned and am learning to design new one weeekly. I really love to do my nails but no one elses too yucky! I also got another book. When I really get my craft together I may post some of them. This was the college I graduated from and it brought back thoughts of my college years. I also got a college schedule book for my son who will attend next year (fingers crossed)).

Now after all that walking on my way back to the car which was up hill and over the river and thur the woods LOL (just kidding) but it was up hill with which seemed like thousands of steps. I thought I would drop 911 please LOL. My body finally caught up with my heart. I probably over did it a bit--- but it is cool. I am glad I decided to walk. Now my exercise is back track. I even managed to stay in cal range. Mr. ee lost this time. emoticon emoticon

First of all, I love that walking trail. So peaceful and tranquil.... emoticon

Walking is emoticon for you. I use to walk 10 miles a day and I toned my calves, flatten my stomach, lost a lot of inches and weight. But most of all, it let me think...Keep up the walking girl emoticon

    Ah, you re-initiated a long-lost "love" for walking - how WONDERFUL! I, too, just WALKED yesterday --- well, I went to pick DH up from class and had 20 minutes to "kill" and it was too hot to just sit in the car, so I used their walking path! It DID feel GREAT!
Oooh a BOOK on nail painting! You'll have to take some pics of your artwork one day emoticon

Just a note of thanks!

Tuesday, June 09, 2009

Wow It has been a while since I've been on the computer. The kids are out of school so I have been really busy with them.

I just want to say thanks for all my new friends on sp and just those who same to say a word of encouragement. I am shocked and honored being chosen as a motivator for the day. I am late posting this but nevertheless thanks for all the goodies, encourging words and comments on my page. I had to swallow tears back. LOL.

It has been along journey for me and I am glad that I could share it with spark and friends. I have a long road ahead but with friends like you and my faith in the Lord I know I will make it.

Some have voiced their concern for me being diagnosed as diabetic. To me that is just a name or condition. It is not who I am inside as a person. I have some challenges that is all. Who doesn't?? It is what you do with the challenge you have been given. I may have been diagnosed as such but I intend on giving that stinking diabetes a run for its money. I may have it but it does not have me. Again A BIG thanks!

    Ah, diabetes is something that everyone can work with. DH has diabetes too, and I "HAD" T2 diabetes. Work on that water, work on better carb choices (whole grains!) watch those hidden "sugars" and you can DO IT TOO!
