From Drill Sargent to Jaws .

Friday, July 12, 2013

I have a confession to make , I am an emotional eater. When I am in my normal mode or a happy state of mind , I can turn down Cheesecake, Lasanga ,Snickers , You name it ! but when I am tired , over worked , sad , or angry ,I turn in to JAWS !!!! I eat all that good stuff and wait... I even eat stuff I don't even like ! I have lost 40 pounds so far and Thank God I havent gained , But its only a matter of time. I have lost 2 pounds since April and its much less then I hoped for I have 25 more to go until My goal weight .
I keep thinking and forgive me I am not one to memorize Bible verses but I keep thinking of Biblical passages like " If a man asks you for your coat give him your shoes as well." and " If a man slaps you on your right cheek offer him your left as well" Well sometimes I feel like I am just standing there with no shoes no coat and two slapped cheeks ! Our Minister said that we should never underestimate our value because God made us , and let others know we have limits and standards , So why do I feel like sometimes I forgive too much and offer too much . For example , I have a friend a dear , dear friend shes like a sister to me, She has been to my house , no lie about 500 times over the years for dinner.I love cooking , I love getting the house ready and lighting candles and finding fun things for us to do but and here comes the but .. I have never been invited once to her house . Now I just decided that perhaps her house wasnt tidy. Yes that was it , Maybe she was ashamed to have me over , although she knows I wouldnt judge her or her house ! I recently went to her house to deliver somethings to her , We have know each other since childhood and I hadnt been in her house since our sons were babies ! and they are 21 and 19 now , and guess what ! IT WAS SPOTLESS !!!!!!!! I blurted out " Your house is clean ! emoticon and she said " of course its clean why wouldnt it be ! " and I covered it nicely and said " I meant to say your house is so clean ! It looks great!" but seriously then I wondered why hasnt she invited me over in all these years ! I think I am going to need a part two for this blog because I am kinda getting off track so I will post another one later ! lol

    My dear friend, Kylie. This reminds me of my daughter and her best friend. They have been bff's since kindergarten, they are now 19. Her bff has spent munch time at our house and with our family on mini-cation. Over all these years my daughter has NEVER been to their house. She has gone to different places with her bff's family. Has even been in their yard, but has never stepped foot in their house. Don't know why this is...
    Maybe your friend is an introvert... I am and although I don't mind having some planned company, I just don't like people in my space. like right now for instance, my SIL, BIL and MIL are all in the dining room with my husband playing cards, while I am in the living room. Not that I don't love my family, but I find it very mentally exhausting having to "entertain", not that I'm not hospitable either. My daughter is just like me. Although her bff has spent much time at our house, rarely has she had any other friends over. We have been after her for years to have a pool party here and invite all of her friends. She has always refused. I have asked her what was wrong...was she ashamed of us, our home, what?!?! Her response " I can see them at school. I don't want them here in my personal space". Years ago when she was little we had house guest for a week. She went missing. We looked in her room, the yard, the basement, at my mother's (nextdoor). We finally found her closet "trying to get some piece and quiet".
    My gracious, I have gotten way off topic. What I am trying to say is don't take it personally. More than likely it has nothing to do with you.
    Loved the blog! Thanks for sharing!

    Some people just are not good at hospitality - i wonder if this is the reason why your friend has not invited you. They may feel more comfortable being in your house than with you in theirs - there is a multitude of reasons people have. It just might have been habit to always meet and socialise around your house.
    Some interesting points raised here though.

    Remember that there is BIG difference between a DECISION and a COMMITMENT! God Bless YOU! Vic.
