i do not think this would have happened if I had not gotten so much better on SP.

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I GOT A WONDERFUL SURPRISE FRIDAY NIGHT!! MY AUNT CALLED AND SAID WANT TO MEET FOR COFFEE TOMORROW? I ASK WHERE ARE YOU AND SHE SAID NEAR VETERANS (A STREET CLOSE TO MY HOUSE). SHE IS IN HER LATE 70'S AND DROVE OVER 1100 MILES HERE FROM MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA JUST TO SEE US. I HAVE NOT SEEN HER SINCE MY MOM'S FUNERAL IN 2001. WE HAD THE BEST WEEKEND AND LAUGHED THE WHOLE TIME. I DO NOT THINK SHE WOULD HAVE COME IN THE SHAPE I WAS IN TWO YEARS AGO BECAUSE SHE WOULD HAVE WORRIED IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TOO MUCH. WE WENT OUT TO EAT AND TO GRANDSON'S BALLGAME AND VISIT HIM. TWO YEARS AGO ONE OF THOSE THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN TOO HARD. I WAS EVEN OUT AT 11:30 AT NIGHT TAKING HER BACK TO THE HOTEL...HAVE NOT BEEN OUT THAT LONG IN YEARS. SATURDAY MORNING I DROVE ALONE TO HER HOTEL AND SHE ALMOST FAINTED THAT I COULD DO THAT NOW. THANK YOU SP FOR BEING HERE AND GIVING ME A WAY TO CHANGE MY LIFE. THEN YESTERDAY WENT TO MY RA DOCTOR AND I'M DOING SO GOOD HE SAID I SHOULD WRITE A BOOK AND BE A MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER. IT HAS BEEN A REALLY GOOD FEW DAYS.

    Oh Sweetie, that is a miracle and alot has to do with SP, but you've done alot too! You know that you did all that huffing and puffing. I remember those days! I'm so happy for you! emoticon And what a good feeling with your RA doctor being so happy for you too! That made your day, I'm sure! I'm so happy too that you can enjoy life to the fullest! emoticon emoticon

    You are definitely special in the courage and positivity with which you have faced and dealt with soooo very many obstacles. I read your blog where you said you have learned to stairs again and have come such a long way since starting out . Just like me. I wrote you a sp mail about it.
Currently you are a source of inspiration and motivation to me. If I am tempted to not work out, or giving up on the Plan. I just think of you and what you have accomplished and I am gently reminded of why I started at the SP plan and what I wanted to do with getting out of the emoticon and why I work at it daily. emoticon emoticon
