Speak it & make it so # 16

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Today my 4 th grandson , or as I like to call them Grand dude was born. My new gift from heaven is Brian Isaiah Scott , 7 lbs 13 oz. . I thank the Lord above for allowing me to see him ushered into this world. He was surrounded by love, laughter , little cousins , grandma's, excited uncles and aunts. He just laid in the nurses arms as though he has no idea the joy he brings. So today I speak Joy !....Blessings emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Isn't it amazing that someone so small can bring so much joy, just by existing! May you have MANY years to enjoy watching him grow!

God's tiny BLESSINGS are unmeasurable in a Grandmother's heart. And if today the 19th is the day of his birth, we share a birthday!

A week out of the hospital and I'm at work and even took a 10 minute walk. My body went haywire. My brain yelled ...WHAT IS SHE DOING WE DON'T WALK, EVER! My skin itched and my stomach said, " We're full is she trying to kill us ? I left for that brief walk and had decided to hate every minute of it. Thanks to my harmonic wheezing I forgot about it. Soooo I'll do it again & see if I can start a new habit . Maybe even a streak. Blessings from the couch potato. Carolyn

    Are you a fan of Indygirl? When she was bedridden she started by weightlifting in bed using shampoo bottles. Everything counts, in large or small amounts!

    We ALL start somewhere - soon your body will stop yelling at you, and you'll know it's time to take on something even MORE challenging!

    A lot of the big success stories I've read started with someone taking their body for a 10 minute walk, kicking and screaming all the way. A month or two or six later they were comfortably walking for 30 minutes. By the time they were at goal, miles every day. I myself have been astonished at how quickly my body has responded to my daily water aerobics (now entering month 3). It almost makes me feel athletic!

Please send prayers and positive energy my way! .....Blessings y'all. Carolyn

    You CAN do it! Keep your focus, use every trick you know to retain the information, and pray for help when you need it!

Prayer to Holy Spirit

Heavenly King, Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, present in all places and filling all things, Treasury of Goodness and Giver of life: come and abide in us. Cleanse us from every stain of sin and save our souls, O Gracious Lord.

We have the VICTORY? OH for goodness sake . I need to say it like I mean it! It has been easy enough to be" Debbie downer". I have her on automatic pilot. I have to Fake it till I make it when speaking or acting positively, why? For me it's because I have been told repeatedly to not get my hopes up or, to settle for less or not to even try ,,, all in the name of not putting my heart out there . Or not getting my dreams stomped on. Maybe this was to help but it didn't. What 's interesting is that I continued to say & do harmful self talk & deprivation to myself... So here goes.....I have the VICTORY, & so do you! ....Blessings Carolyn emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are your own parent to your own inner child. Talk to her like you can see her. Be kind and build up her self esteem and self worth. And she'll behave like an angel!

    You're so right - being negative can be a habit, and like most habits it takes WORK to change! Good for you for being intentional in speaking and acting positively. The more you work out that "positive" muscle, the more natural it will become, and the more enjoyment you'll get out of your life!

Well I'm taking better care of myself. Unfortunately that means that my doctors will be listed as dependents on my W-2's next year. I've been checked from the Rooter to the Tooter & I'm have no modesty left. As a matter of fact I told my doctor, " I told you I had fabulous bone structure, next time do the xray first, the fat can sometime get in the way!" He just stared with his mouth open . I'm going to have to work on his Funny Bone( Hee-hee) . Love y'all .Carolyn Blessings emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
