All great things either continue or come to an end. I had a wonderful time visiting with family here in the big D, I didn't try to rip and run like a chicken with no head driving myself ragged. What I am most proud of myself is that I didn't eat myself into oblivion, I drank my protein shakes in the morning, increase my veggie intake to counteract the few extra carbs I tasted (a serving of my Dad's dressing, a serving of lobster mac and cheese, one cheese slider, one deli sandwich, two slices of my Dad's famous sweet potato pie!) This is over a four day period. Normally I would have been so full of carbs running to my White Castle's, my Lou's Deli, my National Coney Island, my Bread Basket. I was determined to just say no, not to make food the event and get on with better things in life.
Holiday Nights was okay last night. It was just too cold for my 81 year old Dad to be out in windy and drizzling 36 degree weather. I made a point to go get the car early and keep him warm until others finished looking around. I would have enjoyed myself better if I could see things in the daytime. I wasn't use to my surroundings. Overall it was great being with family and friends even though my sister's car battery died and had a flat at the end of night. I am truly grateful for my upgrade with Alamo and having a seven passenger Town and Country van so I was able to transfer so many folks after last night car breakdown. Thankfully all went well, everyone survive despite the inconvenience.
All things continue is what I like to say. I will return to KC to prepare for the coming new year, full of hope, full of memory and full of grace. I am thankful that I was able to share the celebration of Jesus birthday with family and its my prayer that for the coming new year each and everyone of them has their desires of their heart fulfilled by God
