Sadness and Motivation

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

I am sad to report that my two year old grandson drowned in the family pool on Saturday, June 1. The family is devastated, to say the least. The funeral is Wednesday. He leaves four older brothers and a sister behind. We are all people of deep faith and know that God will bring us through this tragedy. The community support we are getting is tremendous. This will not derail my determination to become a healthier person, but I will not be as focused this week, as you can probably understand. I am being conscious of what I am eating, but I am not tracking or doing my daily coach sessions. I will get back to it after all this is over. Prayers are coveted.
