How do I begin this
Thursday, June 21, 2012
My dear Spark friends,
This has been a difficult year to say the least.
At times, I have felt much like Job from the Bible. So many things have been taken away from us. Some gradually, like our retirement funds.....some tragically, like the loss of our nephew in an ATV accident.
We have lost insignificant "things" like one of our cars was totaled in an accident. Fortunately, our son, who was driving the car was in pretty good shape considering. We praised God for that.
My husband lost his job and has been unemployed since the end of February.
Through it all, God has persevered. He has remained by our side and held us up and held us together.
My husband got a job offer yesterday and starts back to work on Monday. Now that we know we will stay in our home and not have to move to another state, I am beginning a job search.
This has been a difficult time...yes....but God has remained faithful to us and we continue to have our health, our home and each other. We don't know if it will get any easier, but we know it will be better as we move forward.
Through all of this, I have gained all the weight I had previously lost. I am disappointed in myself for that, but what is done is done. All I can do is move forward and lose it again.
I have been without my computer for some time.....well over a year.
My Android died 10 days after my warranty ran out, so I could not use it to stay connected to SP. Ugh!
But now I am back!
I have a computer available to me.....part time!
I have a new smart phone!
I have NO reason to not log what I eat.......calories I burn......how much water I drink!
I am ready to get back to work and make it work for me!
