" . . . and hope shall not disappoint us . . . "

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I'm sitting at home this evening, settling in. It's been another good day of a mighty fine weekend. I've got tomorrow off (as I'm a teacher), so I can reflect tonight and transmit my thoughts to y'all.

I think of how a week ago tonight, I was getting sick. Now, I'm better.

I think of how two weeks ago I was getting ready to return from my holiday break and was worried about high my weight was (or is). I've been exercising and, though I've yet to lose too much, I feel better.

I remember that on Dec 7th, we were all so very afraid because my granddaughter had an eye operation in Indianapolis. I'm blessed that I could take off a few days to be with her after the surgery, as my daughter started a new job.

I remember even a year ago, when I wasn't using Spark, how I had very little hope of ever changing my body for the better. I felt weak and overwhelmed. Today that condition has improved.

What I'm trying to show is that today I have hope. I have moved to a better place mentally and physically. I'm stronger. I'm more patient (ok, not much but a little). I'm MUCH more positive. I credit Spark People with that.

I am so grateful. I am so blessed. I plan to come back and reread this when I have lost it. However, tonight, I have hope.

It's been nice talkin' to y'all. Hope we can do it again real soon. Until then, please remember: "ten mucho cuidado" means "take good care".

    Good for you!! I hope that down the road I can reflect as you just have, and think how much better I am doing at that time than I was now! I know it takes baby steps and I've made some good sized ones...but it takes time.

    Your blog is inspirational! Thanks for sharing!
