I am trying to get back on the weight loss track again. I have logged every bite for the last three days now. I have been over my calorie limit each day. Ouch.....reality hurts. I start out fine with breakfast and lunch and then overdo at dinner. I hope to do better tomorrow. This weekend will be a challenge because I will be out of town visiting my parents and eating restaurant food. I will try my best although I know that emotional eating will be a challenge.
This month marks my parents' 85th birthdays. Earlier this year we almost lost mom to several strokes and heart attacks. She is in a nursing home now and fortunately doing better; however, her memory is poor. I am blessed that she still remembers me. I pray she has a good weekend while I am there. My dad is such a devoted husband. He visits mom 3 times a day and makes sure she eats. We talk on the phone every night I am so lucky at age 54 to still have both of my parents!
This picture was taken a year ago before mom got sick.
We went to my grandson's 5th birthday party on Saturday. That sounds so wonderful! When he was born with major problems he almost died.
Over the past five years we have shared so many tears, surgeries, nights in the hospital, kisses, songs, I love you's, dances, prayers, sign language, and I wouldn't trade any of it for a minute! He is a wonderful little boy with an infectious laugh who has taught me so much about living life with joy and without complaint. He is the strongest person I know. He is learning to use a computer to communicate. He is adapting well to using it.
The computerized voice was music to my ears! I pray that JD continues to live, love, laugh, and learn.
I also feel blessed that my granddaughter is back home with my son after her mom abandoned her. I am so proud that she is on the honor roll at school despite all she has been through. She is a beautiful, sweet girl.
Thank you God for putting all of them in my life!!!
