SetBacks Serving A Purpose

Sunday, May 29, 2011

About 9 years ago, I had a MAJOR health scare. There was an obstruction of my small and large intestine, and colon and could not eat for 6 months- yes...months. Talk about going from a size 10/12 to a 2 in 6 months was AWEFUL! (Doing it that way was)...
The problem: non-cancerous tumor the size of a small grapefruit.
Solution: surgery and area repaired.

Fast-forward to today: Since Friday, I have had some abdominal pain due to some possible blockage. Perhaps I did not chew my food properly from Thursday.This is the other reason why I think food tracking can be life-saving.
So now, although I have been feeling some relief (thanks to a wonderful, persistant husband).

Today, I do feel better but some discomfort. this too shall pass. God is god!

So glad I found this site!

Word for the Day On Wednesday, May 18th

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Allow your definition of greatness be about who you are, not just what you can become.
Define self without letting others define you.

What motherhood means to me...

Sunday, May 08, 2011

As a child, I played with dolls and pretended to be their mother. Feeding, changing diapers, and rocking them to sleep.
If only I knew what the REAL meaning of motherhood was then, I'd have treated my dolls with lots of talk about the expectations of growing up in society.
Yes. that would have been a deep conversation. emoticon

Well (today), motherhood means being a support system for not only my children, but others' children as well- 15 years in the teaching profession says it all.

It means the world to me to be a part of the "village" that makes a difference in a child's life. So whether you're a mother or father or a single person w/o parental commitment, be a change agent or "village" supporter. We need you!

    Amen soror. I am thankful for the village in my life. They have taken up the slack in many situations. emoticon

  In general, a parent is one who didn't adequately think it through before inflicting human existence onto an innocent child. There may be a few notable exceptions (I'm not one of them.), but most people's "parenthood" arises out of illusions, foolish good intentions, and ludicrously irrational expectations about what the process of adequate child-rearing over 20+ years actually entails.
