JUST BE PATIENT PART 2
Friday, October 30, 2009
Well as you know my birthday was a real surprise to me Sunday a.m. in my Sunday School class as we were going to celebrate the October birthdays and I took cards for the other 3 birthdays but no one said happy birthday or gave me a card or anything. I did receive a couple of phone calls on my birthday from S S class members wishing me a happy birthday and one was clear from Colombia as she had gone to visit her parents there. Oh well, I said it is better to give than to receive and if they didn't want to do anything in the class I would find my joy in giving to them as I have done for years of teaching now.
Then you knew I withdrew from TOPS as our chapter was a disaster and very stressful for me, the weight recorder, who tried to hold things together. I was determined after the 26th to eat right and lose the weight I had gained after becoming a KOP.
Well, the 27th and 28th I did real well but then a pot luck rolled around the 29th. As you know I was worried about the dressing and although I don't like turkey I decided I would eat it without the dressing and would have no dessert.
Surprise there was no dressing so did not have to worry about that.
Now another surprise. They were not just honoring their pastors on Pastor's appreciation but they also were honoring me on my birthday. Did I get a surprise. What my own Sunday School class did not do for me my friends church where I go to special occasions did.
Now, the real surprise, they brought in a huge Dairy Queen Ice Cream cake as they know I like ice cream. I had never tasted one and it was delicious. They tried to get me to take the left overs home but I would not do so. That is one thing I did right. LOL
Then they had a basket for me with cards and gifts. They were so nice and kind.
So today I am trying to get back on the wagon but seems it gets higher all the time. I did go to the gym and I am so happy I have more energy and can walk better now and don't have a fear of falling.
Thanks everyone. You have been super. So many goodies and kind words. You are good friends. May your weight continue to disappear.
