Yes Fran it was a horrible day, I found myself glued to the tv, I hate it when this sort of crisis happens and I can't seem to pull myself away from the news. I am heart broken for those families and ALL the children, such a horrible way to lose their purity and innocence. My prayers will be with them all... for quite some time.
As for holiday food, yesterday wasn't really a holiday but it was an "event" ... lunch with Dad and his wife and my "adopted brother"... we went to my fathers favorite place... I had been thinking about (not really craving) a nice juicy hamburger. SO I got one. I could only eat half of it and had a tomato and vinegar salad as a side dish. BUT the big thing at the end was Dad ordered a slice of Key Lime Pie for all of us to share.... well, they all had a few bites, I had 5 ... I was on such a sugar high, I felt as though I could float home. LOL But I made up for it today with a much purer and healthy food choices. Plus and extra half hour of exercise this morning.
I am now away that I am not as strongly immune to the treats that are out there as I thought I was. SO I will have to reign that in before the real celebrations begin.
be authentically you...
it's journey, not a one day hike.
