It took avoiding all online communication other than tracking fitness and nutrition for me to accomplish some things that had been piling up, but they're done. I love that sense of accomplishment! The only problem with that is falling behind in the Spark activity emails, but I'm catching up now.
It's so nice to have running water and a stable internet connection! Today was spent catching up on dishes and laundry that had stacked up while the water was out, doing online banking and bill paying for our family and for my mother-in-law who is unable to tend to her financial matters.
I kept my foot elevated much of the day, with my shoes off, trying to give my foot time to heal again. It's not hurting at all right now and I am so thankful for your prayers over me! I know God has brought that comfort and healing. I am so aware of my need to MOVE. It feels good to walk or dance around the house while folding clothes or other chores. I pray God will keep that fire lit for me and keep nudging me to move more and more and more.
My heart is so heavy tonight for the NOPD. One of their K-9 officers left his dog partner locked in his police unit and the dog died. I cannot imagine the anguish of this officer's heart and the reactions of his fellow brothers in blue. So tragic in so many ways. I pray that God will intervene in that man's life in a big way. The story is here:
I am so blown away, so awed, so melted by the dear, dear friends I've made here on SP. The outpouring of encouragement, motivation, creativity, and affirmation is so humbling, so exhilarating. You are the most wonderful friends anyone could ever imagine and I am thankful for each of you.
