Stumbling blocks

Monday, October 25, 2010

The past two weeks haven't been the best. First my brother had a complete mental collapse and was in the psych ward at the hospital, then my husband's uncle passed away quickly in Tennessee so we began plans to travel to the services when our beautiful lab, Angel, got really sick. We took her to the vet who told us to take her to the pet ER who diagnosed her with end stage cancer. My daughter rushed home from grad school so she could say good-bye. Angel held on till she got here and we took her to be put to sleep.

Now my brother is home and feeling better; he feels he's been healed and is off most of his meds -- Praise God! And we've spent a week eating comfort foods and missing Angel. I've had another birthday which is one of those landmarks that makes you think about your life. And hubby and I had to review our health insurance options and have decided we REALLY need to take better care of ourselves because we can't afford to be sick!!

All that to say . . . I'm back! I am recommitting to my exercising and giving up my sloth-like living. I know I'll miss Angel for quite some time but I know I need to take care of myself and my hubby. So . . . here's to it!!

    I love my daily reminder of Angels by being on the team Angels Among Us. Angel is among us too - in your heart and soul.

    What a beautiful spirited dog she was and would want this care for you and your family!

    Congrats on your decision and your brother. God Bless you all and ---
