WORST SUMMER EVER!!!!!
My dear husband of 26 years lost his battle with cancer on August 4, 2013. I feel that half of me is missing- a huge hole right in the middle of my body. I miss him so much! Sometimes i cry myself to sleep-when I can sleep. I can say, though, w... Read more
Looking Forward to fall
This has been a brutal summer. It feels like every appliance in my house quit. My transmission in my car went kablooey. Yet, I know one thing-there is a time and season for everything, and breakdowns are a normal part of life. I have had several... Read more
It has been a crazy week, and it seems to be continuing in the same pattern this week. I wake up each morning wondering what will break today. However, I determined to stay with healthy eating-because that is something I can control. I was good ... Read more
Today was one of THOSE days. My plumbing went in my home, my transmission went on my car, and my cell phone touchpad is useless! If you happen to see a news report about a grandmotherly type woman robbing a bank in Miami-that would be me!!!! I ... Read more
You Can't Always Get What You Want
This morning I was watching an episode of "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody." This is one of my son's all time favorites. In this episode, the boys were transported to a parallel universe where they were able to do whatever they wanted. Of course... Read more
The Party is Over!
Well, here I am-throwing myself one BIG pity party-loving every minute of it. Woe is me-the agony of defeat, etc. etc. The Bible records the story of a young man-we call him the "ProdigalSon." One of my favorite verses in this account is when it... Read more
My best friend just basically told me that I talk about food too much! I am not sure why this hurt me so much. I am really not trying to talk about food, but I guess I do. Maybe I am trying too hard to do everything right because I have done th... Read more
Monday can be a wonderful day!
Poor Monday-the day of the week that often gets a bad rap. Yes, I know for many of us it is the day we return to work, etc. I often find, though, that Monday is my best day for my eating choices. If I have made poor choices over the weekend, I s... Read more
Inspiration from a Victory
The city of Miami is all aglow with last night's victory over OKC.(sorry, OKC fans-I think you have a great team filled with outstanding young men). Two themes that emerged last night were hard work and determination. So it is with each of our ... Read more
Visit to the cardiologist
Yesterday I visited the cardiologist. I sat in an office filled with people of all different ages, sizes, colors, and personalities. One thing we all had in common-the need to take care of our heart. I had always assumed cardiologists were there... Read more
Martha or Mary?
Two of my favorite women of the Bible are Martha and Mary. They were intimate friends of the Lord Jesus, and I know from Scripture that they enjoyed being together. I have to say that lately my "Martha" has over ruled my "Mary." I find that I mu... Read more
Blew it this Saturday.......
I had such a great week last week. I am enjoying Sparkpeople a lot. Yet on Saturday, after a great weigh-in and a wonderful weight loss- I WENT CRAZY! I think I ate everything in sight, and I did very little exercise. This battle begins with my ... Read more
