Well we found out our scale needed batteries and when we finally weighed ourselves i found out I gained 6 pounds and my daughter lost 6. It must be a mix of water, muscle,and weight gain. There was one day when i had 200 calories over. I have been doing a lot of strength training too. Six days a week i do it and i can tell my legs are getting smaller in spots. I am not looking forward to tomorrow after church at all. i have to apologize to someone for some things i wrote in a letter that hurt their feelings. I tried to be tactful and honest. Maybe i came across too harsh and jumped to conclusions too. It is hard to be objective and not do comparisons of people based on their possessions or money or lack of it. I have good friends who have helped us out so many times. Just yesterday one of our friends came down and brought me to the vet so we could see what is wrong with our dog. We found out he has a heart murmur and has water on his heart. She not only took me there but she paid for the office visit and for the water pills. On top of that she gave us a 15 pound bag of expensive dog food. What can i say i am overwhelmed with gratitude. I never asked her to she did it out of the goodness of her heart. The other friend paid almost 100 dollars for zippers to be put in our jackets; because she knew I could not afford it. Yet she still gave us gift cards for Walmart and Shopko. The one only works part time and the other doesn't work at all; her husband is retired from a construction job and living on that. The point is neither of them make as much as what this lady is one in church does. Yet all she gave us one time was a bag with some toilet paper in. And looking at it we could tell it was not a name brand at all; not even a brand from Walmart. God forgive me i cannot help comparing her to my 2 friends.
Yes that was addressed in the letter and something she said on the phone one time. Maybe i took what she said on the phone wrong and maybe she has bills i don't know about. Only God knows; it is up to me to make amends now. Please pray for me for God to put the words imy mouth.
