Here I go again

Monday, February 21, 2011

I read an article, Turning "Someday" into Today by Mike Kramer and it is amazing how it hit home with me.

The article says that we will never be able to get, be or do all that we want. But when we know that life happens it gives us the freedom to make today count as much as possible. We need to give ourselves permission to ignore things for the sake of something more important, our needs and the needs of our families.
Everything else is optional.

This was a 3day weekend for me and I had a plan, I would get everything in the house done cleaning, cooking, laundry,etc. Then the phone rang my only aunt is inthe hospital with pneumonia, then my daughter calls to tell me that her husbands grandmother, and aunt are in the hospital with pneumonia and of course 3 hospitals are involved.

So much for all my plans including workouts and food plan, because i didn't make the hard choice to care for me too.

Oh I almost forgot, my grandson broke his arm in 2 places!!!!

    I agree - take care of yourself. Crazy with so many with pneumonia. Stay well.

    With all those who are in the hospital just make sure you do not end up included on the list. Take good care of yourself too. emoticon

    So many decisions to make - how can you divide yourself so many ways to take care of them all? Ritacake - be sure to take care of yourself - I was pleased to see that cleaning house went to the bottom of your to-do list.
