I have not added a blog in quite a while - have not been really busy (I am retired), but just distracted by life.
I live in a very dysfunctional family - I know all families do have their issue - and we do have differences, but also with my 5 children there is no relationship between any 2 of them. They just live their separate lives - Somehow thru the years it has just been easier for them to separate rather that to face their different beliefs and ways of life.
Many times I have felt like I was just going between them trying to keep some peace - or trying to relate to each one without upsetting my relationship with the others. What a cycle!!!!
However, I have found an inner peace that completely outweighs all the heartache I have experienced. God has always been my Tower of Strength and Comfort. He is the One Who has kept me and He is the One I can always turn to.
And, I have so enjoyed many friendships here on SparkPeople!! So much encouragement and support and caring. And, have just joined the SparkCoach program. I love the way it is integrated into the program I already have going. And, I truly am motivated by the daily videos from the coaches. Each day there is a challenge along with so many other great tips to keep me moving thru the day. For me, it is worth every cent spent. Thank you so much, SparkPeople for this added bonus!!
Today's challenge is to create a visual. I have thought about this for so long, but have just never done. Was not sure how to or where to start - so today out come my magazines (I really do not have many) and will see what i can come up with. Or, may create something on my computer.
We are quite warm here in Pendleton - about 100 each day. Thank You, God, for the a/c. Don't think I would survive without it - and our great little fans that just keep going and going.
