I continue to struggle with my relationship with my children. Yesterday evening went to a Bible study at church and was able to share with this group of wonderful, caring friends. They are so supportive - not judgmental and not full of advice.
Recently have been so tired again - I have arthritis - and when I am still for more than an hour, I hurt..... so do not sleep very long at a time......am up about every 2 hours and just walk around a bit. Then another "nap". But, I do find that I feel better when I exercise more. But, my "excuse" is that I am too tired to exercise. And so goes the vicious circle.
But when I exercise more consistently I do sleep better and am better able to cope with the family God had placed me in. I do love each of my children - they are each so individual and have such loving, caring hearts. But, also, they each have their issues with life. Don't we all!!!! And, my heart aches for each one.
So, my resolve is to get with the program and made a few commitments that will help me to be a better person - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I have done this a number of times, but there are a couple more things I will do that I think will get me over the "hurdle" and into the life that God has for me.
I have read many of the things that SparkPeople have done to motivate them and they sound so good. But, I just read them and think 'What a great idea!!" and then go on as I always had, thinking about it and doing what I have always done - which a lot of the time is not much!!
The first thing I am going to do is a collage - have started one, but did not finish.
That is where I will start this week. Today is Wed. so will have time to do by the end of the week.
And, now it is time to get off this computer and get ready for work. Will see how this week goes!!
