day 2 blogger

Okay, so I said I was going to make a great effort to be open, which is not the same as saying I've been dishonest. No, honesty and integrity are huge for me, but being able to open myself up to others and be vulnerable has always been difficult. So, today at church (this is only the 2nd time I have attended this church, and it has been many years since I've attended any church), I allowed myself to open up and worship and let joy come in. My husband is so sweet. He doesn't care for this type of service. He is very traditional, and I am more into charismatic worship, but this is what I need right now, and he is willing to go along. More than that, he was all mister smiley and friendly, and he is usually more reticent than me about talking to strangers. What a doll! We met a nice couple from Ohio (we actually met them last week), and we exchanged phone numbers to meet for lunch one day next week. Wow! Big step for us, believe it or not. We have been like hermits for the last couple years, living in the mountains. Senior citizen butterflies, just spreading our new wings. But that is why we came to the find an oasis, however temporary. So, I didn't exercise much today, but still on track with the eating plan. Whoo hooo!
