Getting Through a Tough Situation

Monday, April 04, 2011

One month ago I received some unexpected, frightening news that will affect my entire family. I still don't know how it will all unfold, but in all honesty I haven't dealt very well with it. I know things will work out eventually, and that God is in control, but the not-knowing how it will play out is difficult.

How have I dealt? Crying a lot. And eating. I didn't realize how much my emotions turn me into an out-of-control beast. I've eaten just about every bad thing I could get my hands on. (Even when I've given myself pep talks to overcome!) It didn't help that my kids are active in sports right now, so we have been constantly on the go -- with Wendy's and McDonalds easily accessible. And my exercise plan? Ha! A regular workout left the day we received the news. Amazingly, I haven't gained but a couple pounds, but . . . I know it must stop NOW.

Tomorrow is a new day, and I love myself and my family enough to eat better, to live better. I feel stronger in just getting the words on the page. ;-)

  Prayers coming your way. So sorry about the news but, as you know, eating won't help and can hurt. Keep coming back, keep putting those feelings and thoughts in a blog and keep praying. I hope all turns out better than you can imagine but only time will tell. Remember the serenity prayer" God grant me the ability to change the things I can change, to accepot the things I can not, and the wisdom to know the difference".

    I am glad you feel better expressing yourself. I hope things work out soon and you can turn your attention to your well-being. These things in life really do distract us. Be well.

    Getting off track just adds to your problems! I got a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER we pray for each other every day that we will draw closer to the Lord and make wise choices to help us lose weight. Life is tough we have to be tougher or get ran over. There is nothing to big for God to handle . My prayers are with you! emoticon
