Ode To Mother ~~Part Two ~~Of A Beautiful Poem Written by my Husband

Sunday, May 09, 2010

She bore me with great pain and tears~
For this alone I shall never cease to sound the words:
Thank you ,Mother, in her ears.
And when her loving care passes on from this mortal veil,
By grace,I shall once again at heaven's gate
join her along with Jesus our Lord in His embrace.

May all those who are mothers or mothers-to-be,grandmothers,great-grandmoth
ers have a simply joyful day!!! I thank God for my mother,long since past 26 years,for the kindness and devotion she showed us kids and my dad while I was growing up and did make a happy place!!!

Ode To Mother~~A Beautiful Poem from Husband & son~Written by Husband ~Inspired by His Mom

Sunday, May 09, 2010

If ever a happy place in heaven on earth was there,
surely it was made by mother's loving care.
She taught me everything I know day by day
and never complained along the way.
Mother raised me well and taught me to be a man.
It's only now I realize she made me what I am.
She trained me to be straight and true,
to be honest and faithful in everything I do.
She led me every day in the little things she would do or say.
Best of all her love and kindness taught me how to pray
and put my feet upon the way.
~~~~Have to continue the second part on a new blog ~~not enough room!!! :(

Redefining My Happiness IS....

Friday, May 07, 2010

Happiness used to be getting back up on the bicycle.
Now happiness is getting used to my NEW ENERGY in THIS NEWLY ENERGIZED BODY and going 17 miles TODAY round trip!!! {Toddler was in bike trailer on the bike trail~My hubby had him! MY TURN next time!!!!}
Happiness used to be getting to sit down in between walking to/from the park w/ family.
Now happiness is chasing my son and playing games w/ him AFTER walking to the park!
Happiness used to be getting rest after running around the house w/him 1 time.
Now happiness is running around the house at LEAST 5x and not getting winded,plus seeing HIM rest!
Happiness used to be just having time to watch a movie with my hubby.
Now happiness is not only watching a movie w/ my hubby AFTER a full day of morning mile runs together or bike rides or SOME form of exercise ,but also enjoying the good example of a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE we are modelling for our young son!!!
What are YOU happy about as a result of your wt. journey with Sparkpeople? Have you REDEFINED your idea of happiness? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are so right!! There are so many benefits besides just losing weight. I have found that I am not as horribly tired as I used to be.....some days I don't even have to take a nap, where before I would easily sleep 16-18 hours a day!!

Today when I went in to return some clothes to get a bigger size for a friend's daughter[They were a gift I'm giving her for her birthday next month--I always plan gifts FAR AHEAD!}, I was looking around and saw some tanktops that were in MY SIZE and THEY FIT!!! They weren't any size smaller than what I had been, but that they were CUTE and FIT ME!!! HURRAH!!!!

As I sit to write this about yesterday,I can just breathe deeply and relax---toddler's taking a nap!!! Yesterday was one of those go,go,go days...but who knew wearing my Garmin b/c I was outside most of the day would add up to 571 calories burned at the end of it?!! It was great to see!!! And the lil' turtle INCHED SOME MORE!!! He's at 6.8 and GOAL!!!!! Here's hoping your icon is steadily moving downward!!! I gotta go prepare a dinner and deliver it to help out a mom who just had a baby boy--her third!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

How wonderful that your little turtle made goal!! Maybe that's my problem~~I have flowers and they don't seem to be moving much!!

It's amazing some days how much we move and just don't realize it. I wear my pedometer everywhere!
