Walking on . . . .

Friday, March 05, 2010

Although my husband and I didn't have our date day, we did spend it with family and I am very gratefull for their understanding.

I also did walk yesterday, even though I really did not want to. What I wanted to do was just go to sleep and wake up to a new day. Today I also got up and went for a walk, and feeling a little better, or at least that I accomplished something.

Not much happening this weekend, so I think I'll try rearranging furniture and catching up on my reading once that is done.

Sparkfamily, I want you all to know that you all are precious to me and I thank GOD for each of you. Be blessed emoticon

    I am going to be re-arranging my furniture sometime next week. I always do it in the spring, its part of my spring cleaning ritual. If you play some music with a good beat and really move a lot, you'll burn some calories!!!

God bless you!

I cried......

Thursday, March 04, 2010

I cried . . . .just before I went to sleep. I guess I had been holding onto those tears all day yesterday and when I was ready, awake alone, I felt them fall and I couldn't stop. I did not moan or sob, just gentle tears rolling continuous down my cheeks and the ache of my heart that will be there for awhile. (Until I see my son RILEY again)
I was listening to my playlist of Inspirational music and just imagining what my son sees in Heaven was so, so, heart wrenching. I want so much to there with him, and yet knowing that my place is here makes it hard to get up to another day.
But I did, My last memory before sleep over came me, was praying that GOD would get me through this and will reveal his will for me soon. Although the day is late now I feel I can come here and just write, about what? I don't know.
I do want to thank you all for your comments, for your hugs and for being my friends.
I think I've lost my groove, my momemtum for exercise. No, maybe just for today. I mean I will get back to it, it's just I need today to recollect, rejuvenate, to pause. I will be back tomorrow, so have a great evening with your families sparkfriends.

    My heart goes out to you. I have a pretty good idea how you feel about the loss of your son. Seven years ago, our family went through the loss of my 6 1/2 month old grandson. My Daughter still has bad days. The thing that has seen her through is her love for the LORD and her determination to help other hurting mothers. May GOD bless you and your family and I know he will see you through.
Force yourself to get up and get moving. Don't let Satan have a crack to get to you.
Keep on Keeping on in the LORD. emoticon

    I am so sorry to hear about your son. I pray that God brings you comfort soon. I pray that He keeps you in his hands and protect you from any further pain. It's okay to take a day off to get yourself together. God took a day off when He created the world. May God be with you through this journey and keep you on your journey to lose weight. Maybe the exercise can help get your mind set back. Don't stop loving and don't give up. I know you want to be with your son but know he is in good hands. Concentrate on what it is God wants you to do here. Much love goes out to you and your family. If you need to talk or need a shoulder to cry on, don't hesitate to stop by and let me know. I am here for you if you need me.

Many Blessings,
Mystic

    I feel like I'm losing momentum too. Just think about how Riley would want you to be healthy and happy. I've been missing my mom a lot lately but I know she would be proud of me so I just try to keep going, one day at a time. You've been so very strong. *hugs*

    I'm glad that you felt comfortable crying, listening to music, thinking about your son in heaven and talking about it here. Feel free to share some stories about him. It might give you a chance to relive some of the good times.

Remembering my son ♥ RILEY ♥

Although it's been 4 years, the memories of that day still linger, but to know that you live pain free, asthma free makes it bearable. We love you sweet baby boi, always and forever

    Wow. I just visited your son's memorial site, and I am crying right now. My son is 10 (he will be 11 on 3/14) and I can only imagine what it would be like to lose him. My sister died when she was 10 as well after being hit by a car. Both of my kids have asthma as well, though not to the extent of your Riley. Prayers are with your family. He must have been one special little boy. emoticon

    That brought a tear to my eye. You are in my prayers. Always remember he is in heaven now, worshiping our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is so much better there than it is here on this earth and one day you will be right there worshiping with him. God Bless!

Tuesdays stuff

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

I did it again, well almost. I walked for 29 minutes this morning and I did my food journal, prayer journal and now I can feel a momentum rolling on now.

Tomorrow is our date day, my husband and I go shopping and to the movies. I'm not sure what we are going to watch but it's usually my choice. I do have time to do my walk early so I am glad for that, now it's just the food planning that gets tough because my honey gets his choice for this.

Ok, sparkfamily you all have a goodnights rest and I'll talk to ya'll tomorrow

I did it I walk for 30 minutes, it was so refreshing.
I logged my food at weight watchers
I drank 9 c water

Wrote in my prayer journal

Although I do need to catch up on my Bible study and couple other things. But I do feel I accomplished things, now I can go to bed and NOT feel so guilty.
Goodnight sparkfamily, be blessed
