I heard this on the radio and really like the thought so, I'm sharing it with you all (don't know who to give credit for it)

Gratitude is the attitude that sets the altitude for life,

Thoughts on Problems

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Problems do not go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit.

The Weekend!

Monday, September 07, 2009

We've had a really enjoyable time with the grandsons. We got to watch the youngest play football. It seems it always costs me plenty because grandma always buys new things for the kids!
Now the time is coming for the 3 hour drive home!

    So glad you got to spend time with the grandsons and watch the football game. You now have many new memories to carry with you and I'm sure you got lots of pictures.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen

Time for a New Start

Monday, August 31, 2009

I haven't been doing well in my weight loss--in fact I have gained about 10-12 pounds this summer. I decided I would go back to the beginning and restart the SP program. I am visiting Curves regularly but the last week or so I have not been able to do a lot of walking. It's time to visit my Dr. again to see if meds could be part of the problem (I hope) and what is going on with my hip that is causing the pain.
Please keep me in your prayers!

    Sorry to hear about your hip, I hope that is better soon. Starting over can be really helpful at times in this journey. I know you can do it!

    Are you feeling worse than you did as a teacher? I gained, so I started over. It takes a big person to admit they need help and started over.

    Just hang in there and do the best you can after you visit the doctor and find out for sure what is going on. You don't want to injure yourself any more. Try to eat your fruits & veggies and drink your water. It will all work out! We're all here to cheer you on!

    Try to stay positive and I will pray that the doctor can answer your questions. Remember just do as much as you can. I wasn't able to walk for a couple of days feet problems.

    Sorry to hear you're having a rough time. Maybe the doctor will be able to shed some light on the situation.

Stick with your program and stay positive. You can do it!

Vacation's Over!

Thursday, August 20, 2009

All good things must come to an end---so they say! I really enjoyed my time at the lake and the time I had for me! The first week my dh and I were able to spend time with our son and the youngest grandson. The oldest had football camp and he's just going into 7th grade! These sports are starting when these kids are way tooooo young!
Well back to vacation time, the second week, I spent most of the time by myself! That was wonderful! Going to bed when I wanted and I loved being able to spend my nights sitting by the campfire! (And yes, I had some s'mores!)
The last weekend some good friends came up and it was great catching up with them!
It was a great 2 and 1/2 weeks!
Now it's back to my real life and I hit the ground running!

    Sounds like a great and relaxing vacation! For many years my family went for a two week vacation every year to Lake Gaston in NC. I haven't been on a two week vacation for several years now. 2 1/2 weeks...wow! Lynkin emoticon
