Kids...ya gotta love them!

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Hurrying along the corridor of the hospital and bracing myself for what was to come.I took a deep breath and stepped in.Lying on the bed was my beautiful oldest daughter.She looked pale and started crying when she spied me at the foot of the bed.Mom,she held out her arms.I sat beside her and held her tight.My mind is going haywire with the most awful thoughts.I wiped her tears and said The nurse called me,whats wrong?I have a kidney infection and the Dr.said he wants me to take tests for diabetes.Im so scared she was crying again.WHEW!I let the air escape my lungs.It felt like my legs would give out.Is that all?You would do anything to get attention I laughed and kissed her nose.She was discharged and made a follow-up appointment.She lives life to the fullest and eats anything she wants.She smokes,drinks,sleeps and wont exercise.She is shocked that she might have diabetes!I took her to the library to read about her condition,she was dazed at the effects it has on a person not caring about their health. emoticon SUSAN

    My prayers on your daughter's behalf are already winging their way to the Lord God. I hope she will begin to do what will benefit her.

I have sevearl friends who are faced with living with Diabetes. Two of those friends are now faced with the aftermath of having chosen to live in denial about the disease. The diabetes is now raging out of control, with both gals being faced with dealing with ever dimming eyesight & one experiencing horrendous concerns with her feet. She was in great danger of having one foot amputated some years ago. I know that the only reason that she didn't lose that foot is because of the grace & mercy of the Lord. Still, she chooses to continue playing Russian roulette with her health.

God bless!

P.S. One of my sisters-in-lawa (brother's first wife) died at an early age because of the complications of Diabetes. It is just not a disease one should ignore.

Then there was my father-in-law - once he was diagnosed with the disease, he did everything in his power to keep it under control & his diligence paid off quite handsomely. He proved that it can be done & I admire him for that.

If you fall,dont you get up?

Friday, May 03, 2013

Someone very dear to my heart,she is gone now, said those words.She said That..You can change the body you are given but,you will still be YOU!So Love yourself every day God graces you on this Earth.After all you should love and appreciate what you have.Some people don't have health but they are happy.Every time I step into the senior center/retirement home...smiles and hugs greet me!It makes my heart grow with happiness each and every time.Many have been placed by un-caring offspring and never visit them.Cora,does not have legs but she has loads of love in her heart!She exercises each day and drinks her water.Jerry sweats to the oldies and flashes his guns with a silly grin.I have fought weight since I was 26,thats half my life!If I fall,I get up!God gives me the strenghth to Love ME and If I have a whisper of negative thought,I refuse to let it in.All of Us have the power to be strong no matter what comes our way.If weight is gained we can lose it and by gods grace I will and You will too...The only way is Self Love!!Let us count our Blessings today and always!!! emoticon SUSAN

  What a wonderful post! I am trying so hard to love myself. It is very difficult for me, because My Negative Voice has been present for mostly all of my life. Your story is inspiring ~ Have a great weekend.

A lesson well learned

Thursday, May 02, 2013

My oldest dd Alisha and youngest dd Kayla came over with a picnic.They brought Taco Bell,Mcdonalds and donuts plus milkshakes!I could have gotten angry and yelled but WHY? I am ok and made myself some stir-fry!I had half a donut and half a small milkshake.We then took a long hike to what I like to call"Fountain Mountain"It's a housing area with alot of hills and ALOT of homes have fountains in the yards.Mom!They yelled are you serious?Yep I laughed and handed them both waters.By the time we came back to the car,they fell in the car and didn't say a word! emoticon Huffing and puffing,Alisha said are you serious?You hike that place 3 times a week?Yep I laughed want to go again Saturday?NOOOOOOO!they both yelled.Kayla said from the backseat"I get it mom,no more fast food!I've learned my lesson today!! emoticon They actually did well on that hike and said they would go again and that they have sore muscles in their eyelids from it emoticon emoticon SUSAN

    Congratulations, you handled that situation with class and courage. I have had cake and ice cream for the last two days and I feel like just giving up on myself. I am tired, frustrated and disappointed in me. You did great. All the best. emoticon emoticon

Roberta is such a lady!

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

I love people!I can deal with just about anyone.Saturday I was with a group of ladies handing out fans to the elderly.If they live in certain high crime areas they will not open windows to cool off.And who can blame them?Well we had successfully handed out about 325 fans,when along comes this woman.She is frowning and so rude to us.She asked us for money to go buy an air conditioner!Roberta,the supervisor says...No we're only giving out fans.The lady just walks over to her and remarks that we are very stupid people.This is Texas!she shouts.Who gives out fans?Roberta stayed calm and asked was she low income elderly.Did she want a fan?She picked up a cup of water and poured it on Roberta!The ladies husband walked over grabbed her and apologized,handed me $100 to buy more fans and left.We all turned to the dripping Roberta and saw she was smiling and fanning herself."She don't know she just cooled me off" emoticon We all laughed and continued our day,a long day! emoticon emoticon SUSAN
