A Sad Week 12/5/10

Monday, December 06, 2010

This week the 30 year old sister of my son's girlfriend was killed in terrible car crash. The funeral was yesterday and there was not an empty seat or a dry eye in the entire church. There was no visitation because the crash was so bad, both occupants of the car were killed instantly, and the police weren't positive what exactly caused the accident, but there was no alcohol involved and they weren't speeding......possibly a patch of black ice. It's hard to understand why two young lives are snuffed out like that; I lost my first son without warning in 1983. We had no clue there was anything wrong during my pregnancy(full term) but he only lived eight hours and I never had a chance to hold him. At least now I can relate to parents who have lost children and give them a little comfort.

    Yes they were Brie, and the memorial service Saturday was amazing! The church was standing room only, filled with young people and the pastor did a salvation service. I'm hoping that many more young people will be save as a result of this.

    Were they saved? If they were, then they are in a far better place than the one that they left. If their friend's and relatives are saved, than they WILL be with them again, and then it will be forever. Brie

My Credo

Sunday, April 20, 2008

I have no control over the numbers on the scale. I only control how much physical activity I get and what I choose to ingest.
My progress will be measured by how active I am that day and my food choices. I will not berate myself if my body needs to rest. I will give my body what it needs that day.
I will praise and celebrate my accomplishments a lot and just acknowledge my shortcomings...because I'm not superhuman and I don't need to be perfect.
I will not be unkind to myself. If I wouldn't say it to my best friends, niece or nephews (or in your case, kids), then I am not allowed to say it to myself. It is hypocritical to have a different standard for yourself than others.
I will learn to love myself unconditionally.
I will learn to live passionately and with as much love for myself as I have for others.
I will remember that what makes me a goddess is my passion, heart, and soul, not my physical attributes.
