Hello everyone it has been awhile since I have blogged. I must add I have been going through a lot lately. My husband was in hospital for 6 days with Sepsis ( a blood Infection ) My Mom has been with me for awhile & will continue to be until her place is done being renovated which is upsetting her, she likes to be in her own home. I also am going through my own depression or lack of motivation in ANYTHING. My spark friend Karen ask me to join her on a journey to being fit & healthy. Her son is in Afghanistan & she told me he is willing to go & defend our country she should at least be able to take care of her healthy side. This was last night. I woke up at 6:30 & went on a brisk 2 mile walk, then I came home & did a 10 minute work out from Sparks with NIcole. I even drank a glass of water. I have not walked or worked out in sometime. I thought of Karen's son * all the other men & women over there. I thought how happy they would be if they could walk on our soil. As I went along the way I looked at all the beautiful purple, pinks & yellows in the wild flowers. I smelled the sweet scent of the good earth, the smells of the pines & different trees. I walked, & remembered how good it is to have our many freedoms. I have trees to see & smell as well as flowers , I walk in the open with out worry. how blessed we are to live in Our America. Thank you Karen for reminding me we must never for get or take those freedoms for granted.
