I have noticed over the past several years that there is a new focus on people rather than things in our society, at least with some areas! That is such a blessed thing! People last, things don't! We have all been given certain people in our lives who truly are special-they help us grow and become the people we were created to be.
Last night I was blessed to be able to spend the night with two very special young ladies from our church. They are beyond belief wonderful for me. My daughters had both left home when these two girls (sisters)came into my life through the church. They were home schooled, so very sweet and innocent. Their parents work with our youth in the church. I don't know why or how it happened, but the girls and I clicked from the beginning. They are really where I became Miss Lori as their parents wanted them to be sure to respect their elders! The ladies are now 20 and 17, both taking college classes, still living at home and staying involved in our church. I love them so very much! I thank God for them. Through their eyes, I see myself so much stronger and better than my own perspective of myself has been. They have constantly been an encouragement to me. I have spent very little money on them, but I have given them my time and hugs. No money in the world could buy what they have given me. If God places people in our lives like them, I believe it is up to us cherish them for the gifts they are! Yep, people are the most important!

I cannot believe it! I actually can still do it! It took me awhile to warm up and granted, 5 jumps at one time isn't very many! But I am so proud of myself!
I have been pestered lately by this sweet little voice in my head whipering "This day is for you-get out and jumprope". Well, it's really easy to ignore that noise when you're on the tired side, but today there was energy, so I went out to the back patio with the jumprope. Now, granted, it is a cloth jumprope, rather flimsy if you ask me. Any excuse in a storm, right? All I know is, when I first started out, two things happened One, I can't jump on both feet because gravity still works too well. The second thing that happened was the rope came over me right after I jumped! It took several jumps to get the coordination back. Finally one jump, one leg at a time. Then two jumps. After about 6 mins. or so, I could actually do 5 jumps before I goofed with the rope. I did about 10 mins.today. Next nice day I'll try again, and again. I will get this thing down and it's so much fun doing it! I never imagined I would have such trouble jumproping, but after probably 30 years, one does tend to get a little rusty! It's time to get the rust out!

I learned a hard lesson this weekend. I don't have to eat all the fries and all the hamburger to enjoy them! It really is okay to listen to your conscience when it says, no more! I blew my calorie count because I felt I wanted and therefore had to have a hamburger for dinner last night. Of course, that also meant fries, which I knew beyond a doubt was a no-no. But the I want's were in charge last night. So this morning I wake up with guilt. Fortunately, sparkie has reminded me enough of falling and getting back up, so I did. Now, in the evening, I can look back on a very successful day. I've exercised, I've eaten right, and now I'm going to have some me time! Thank God for second chances-we all need them once in a while!
