mother's day recovery

Monday, May 13, 2013

I've had a rough week. Staying inside. Not exercising much. Feeling prickly and moody. I didn't realize how much I was dreading mother's day until I woke up this morning - feeling ten pounds lighter, cheerful, and productive.

Yesterday was hard - thinking about last year, and how innocent and delighted I was at all the mother's day stuff - it was like it was all made for me. This year it was a club I had been terribly, terribly excluded from.

This is a good thing for me to know - to look ahead and give myself some extra care and cushion around days I might have a hard time. October might be difficult. My birthday, too. Mother's day again next year.

I'm proud of myself that I didn't let an off week take me away from my long-term goals, though. I got on the scale this morning and have gone up 4 pounds, but I know what I'll be eating today, I have my exercise planned - and I'm reaching out and taking other steps.

    First of all, you are not excluded from Mothers Day! You had a baby, you produced a beautiful human being. She will be there in heaven to greet you.
    I lost my first child Oct1,1980. I had my daughter October 14,1981.

    It is the most painful thing to happen, but life is still out there waiting for you to discover. Your beautiful daughter is looking down and smiling at you. We have no way of knowing if or when we will have a viable child. It is a crap-shoot actually.
    HE is the only person who knows if we will get what we ask for.. trusting in Him is key. I am praying that things get easier for you as time goes by. It is NOT easy, but you have a wonderful hubby, you are getting a healthy body. remember, the EVIL one tries to discourage us, depress us, make us think sad and bad things, to drag us away from our Creator.
    You are doing great,, keep that beautiful attitude and know that your hubby is there with you.
