Day 8 of Dog Walking & Day 7 of No Diet Dr. Pepper
Monday, September 24, 2012
Well, today has been a rough day for me. What I wouldn't give for a Diet Dr. Pepper today, but I held strong and didn't cave in. I did have my son run to the convenience store and get me a bottle of ice tea though.
Today is the 11th anniversary of my younger brother's death. He died from lung cancer when he was only 41 years old. It just makes me so sad when I think of how he died too soon. Almost a year ago, his daughter who was only 12 when he died, gave birth to his first grandchildren. Who would have been so proud of her.
This is my brother Joel. This picture was taken just a couple of months before he died.
This is a picture of my 3 brothers, Al, Andy, and Joel.
This is a picture of all 5 siblings. I'm standing up and my sister, Julie, is sitting next to Joel.
This evening we took the dogs for a walk. It was beautiful outside. The dogs had a great time. I wasn't feeling well, but I didn't want to let the dogs down. I think it really helped me a lot.
Again, I want to thank everyone for all your support and encouragement. It means the world to me and it really helps to keep me focused.
