Tis The Season for Slimming Down

Sunday, December 29, 2013

Yes. I have celebrated my savior's birth. I have been angered by the family disconnect throughout the divorce. Christmas was our 18 year wedding anniversary. He didn't even see his oldest son (from a previous relationship), and I have prayed for forgiveness in my heart although he continues to hurt and bewilder our children.

So I am "slimming down" my emotions. Whatever happens, I know I gave it my all. Whatever is said, I give it all to my God to deal with. It is bigger than me at this point and I know I'm not perfect, but I was a good wife and mother.

So I am recommitting myself to fitness, nutrition, and mental health. "I give myself away..."

Join me along this journey to being a better me.

Thanks to all of my spark friends who have continued to be a source of ongoing support. It means more than words can express.

I know I'm not online often, but when I check in and "SPARK" I feel the love and support. emoticon Muah!!!

    You can only control yourself and actions, not his. His actions will come back to him one day. emoticon You do what you can, as much as you can...and then it is out of your hands. It is hard to let go, but it is the best thing you can do for yourself.

    You've had so much to deal with and you have remained strong through it all. Pat yourself on the back for that.

    So sorry to hear of the turmoil, and the sadness of a blessed holiday being tainted by such shenanigans....

Please remember that the Lord shows Himself mighty in those who commit to Him... In our weakness His strength is made manifest...

I am sorry to hear your turmoil especially around the holidays, but it is in God's hands. Rest in knowing God is in control. I need help motivating to lose weight again as I gained this year even though I exercise every day, I don't always eat well. Know that you are a good mother and were a good wife and God will see you through your turmoil. Please know I am here for you.

    You ARE a good mother! You are giving love and stability. There is no way you can explain your husband's behavior. You and the kids need to is not you. You are worthy and wonderful! Hugs, Laurel emoticon
