Thanksgiving 2012

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. My heart was missing several of my family, my mother was with me all day in spirit. Talked with her sister today and she sounded so much like her it made me cry. No matter how long she is gone I will always miss her. Next was Jason. This was his 2 Thanksgiving in jail. My heart breaks thinking of him all alone. They don't even have special visiting hours for them at this jail. How he must miss Dylan and Shanna. I know everything is his own fault but still to feel like everyone has deserted him must be awful. i pray this makes him realize how he has to change his life. I miss my son, the one that I remember as a child with a beautiful laugh and that special glint in his eye. I miss the little things he used to do to help me out. How he use to cook for me. I pray that this is the year for Jesus to open his eyes and heart to how much he loves him. He needs to know without a doubt that he is loved. Some how I failed to make him feel loved and he has turned to all the wrong things to find happiness. I know that without a miracle he doesn't have a chance for a happy life. All prayers are appreciated.

Had a wonderful day at Long Hunter Park with 3 of my grandchildren. We all walked 2 1/ 4 mile around the lake. Little or no complaints even from the 2 youngest. Not my best day food wise but still a great day. They will all be with their other families tomorrow so even more special spending this time with them. Thank you Jesus for the time we had together.

Great day today. Walked at Long Hunter State Park. The park looks so different when the leaves fall. You can see the lake for the entire walk. Saw deer eating and could hear the squirrels scurrying through the leaves. So peaceful and calming. Amazing blue sky with the clouds floating by as I stood on the bridge praying. God has blessed us so with the ability to see him in the beauty of nature.

new goal for the week

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Finished rereading chapter 8 tonight and decided to set a new easy goal for this week. I am going to blog each night before going to bed. My goal is to review the day and talk about something positive that I have either done or had happen to me. I tend to focus on the negative. I want to be a spark of light for others instead of a negative nellie. Today my positive was getting out of the house for my 20 minutes of outside activity. Tomorrow is a new day and I am looking forward to meeting it head on.

New day new challenge. Just didn't want to walk today but forced myself to get in the car and drive to my favorite walking trail, thinking once I got there I would enjoy it but guess what? Waited to long and park was closing. Did walk for about 20 minutes but didn't meet my goal of 40 minutes. Stayed on track with food though. Guess that is better than nothing. Not sure what's wrong with me today. Just not motivated for anything. Just wanting to sit and do nothing. That is so not me. Trying to figure out why. Hope tomorrow is better.

    YOU know I've had days like that too! It's ok - what you must do is think positive about the exercise you did get in. It takes awhile to get into the swing of things.

I've lost over 30 lbs and it has been a slow process. Started last Sept (2011) emoticon . Just put in the time and track what you eat and I assure you you will get results!! Good luck on this wonderful journey you're embarking on. It's all about a new and improved YOU (and Me).
