Begin again, no matter how many times you need to.

Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.

Conquering stress may seem easier in some ways, with the wisdom gained over my many years, but hormonal changes threw much of that, out the window.

A new strategy is required.

This is a much like a game. Seeing what will will work and what will not.
You can do all the old tricks just right, but that only worked when you were a younger version.
It takes patience, perseverance, commitment and the ability to get up when knocked down, over and over and over again.

Think you are doing OK? Boom! Injury, sickness, death of a loved one.
Or maybe you take care of everyone else and need to do something for yourself.

Get up. Go again, even if it takes you awhile.

Lean on God, your spark friends and the very depths of your soul.

Remember where you came from and who you are.

I am up for another round.

    A Friend's Greeting
    I'd like to be the sort of friend that
    you have been to me;
    I'd like to be the help that
    you've been always glad to be;

    I'd like to mean as much to you
    each minute of the day
    As you have meant, old friend of mine,
    to me along the way.

    I'd like to do the big things and
    the splendid things for you,
    To brush the gray from out your skies
    and leave them only blue;

    I'd like to say the kindly things that
    I so oft have heard,
    And feel that I could rouse your soul
    the way that mine you've stirred.

    I'd like to give you back the joy
    that you have given me,
    Yet that were wishing you a need
    I hope will never be;

    I'd like to make you feel as rich as I,
    who travel on
    Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to
    lean upon.

    I'm wishing at this time that I
    could but repay
    A portion of the gladness that
    you've strewn along my way;

    And could I have one wish this year,
    this only would it be:
    I'd like to be the sort of friend
    that you have been to me.

    Dropping a pants size in October sounds like a great plan and goal. I weighed myself this morning and have lost another 2 pounds. Not the 5 I wanted to lose in September but it's 2 more gone. I hope you had a great day. Mine was long. Love you. ttyl. emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for coming by my page to congratulate me on losing two pounds! It "only" took me a month to do it, but hopefully this is the start of something even better. I am hoping this is the end of my plateau!

    Hey Mom! I can't wait to see you this weekend or on Monday! Whichever works out for us. I'm thinking I'm going to buy a pumpkin tomorrow. I really want to have one on my front porch for the first of October. I hope you have a great day tomorrow. Love you!
