Moving forward...

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

This week has seemed so long and I'm only half way through. Work is becoming more challenging as the kids are becoming more comfortable and are starting to show their true colors. I'm so grateful that God has placed me in their lives. I have been given the gift of helping to change lives one day at a time.

The weather has been beautiful...even chilly. I'm so ready for Fall. The fall foliage is gorgeous around here. We have friends coming in for the holiday weekend. It will be so nice to spend some time with them. This month is already shaping up to be a busy one. Where does the time go? Life is just flying bye. Any suggestions as to how I can slow it down? emoticon

Solitary Confinement

Saturday, August 29, 2009

Sometimes I find it very difficult to get motivated. I live out in the middle of no where...literally. I love the view and the peace but having so much silence has begun to hinder my ambition. I consider myself social and with no one close, I don't have an exercise buddy. I miss that. Having friends walking along side me in the past made such a difference. These trails have taken their toll and I don't feel like huffing and puffing up them anymore. I'm in search of something new.

I am considering joining a gym. I may not know anyone but it will get me out and about. The Lord never said it would be easy, but He also said I would not go through this alone. I cling to His promise. (Picture of my view 3/1/2009).


Highs and Lows

Monday, August 24, 2009

I've been checking on other's blogs and I can empathize with so many. I want to encourage everyone to hang in there. The storms pass and though we may be tattered and worn at the end, we are still standing. I am so grateful for the support that I have found in all of you, no matter the distance between us. God has blessed me through this journey and I look forward to traveling even farther with everyone.

I am at rest...

Thursday, August 20, 2009

A lot has gone on this week. I glad to say it is almost Friday. I did find out a dear friend and mentor was taken to the hospital tonight with chest pains. His family means so much to my husband and I. Please keep them in your prayers.

I ran across this quote in a book I read a while back (Captivating): "The place God calls us is that place where the world's deep hunger and our deep desire meet." I look at my life and how God has taken my passions and allowed me to surround myself with them in everyday life...He gives me the chance to touch the world doing something I love. Each child that crosses my path will know they are loved and that they too can make a difference in this world. What an exciting, blessed life...


Sunburn stall...

Monday, August 17, 2009

The first day of school went well. I did not snack very much and I have stayed in my calorie range. I did notice it was a little higher today than the past weeks. I wanted to do some exercise tonight but I was not about to go out again in the sun. The sunburn from the weekend is still pretty painful. I noticed just a little bit ago that the sun was not out as much. Low and behold if it was not because a storm is rolling in. I may try a workout dvd tonight but any upper body movement is still rather painful. Overall though, I have great hopes for this week. I want to see the scale move! emoticon

    Hey Girl, glad the first day of school went well. Just a side note on the sunburn for you, I have always had really good success with noxzema or barbarsol shaving cream in the red can. Just rub them on and let it sit for awhile then rinse it off with cold water. barbasol has always helped me with the sting of sunburns....hope that helps!
