April 2013 What a Month!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

What a week! What a month! It has been so sad to see what people have had to go through during this week. My thoughts and prayers are with them all. God Bless America. Boston marathon bombing, Texas plant explosion, flooding in MO and IL

Well I have decided to get back on my diet and start up the ole exercising plan again. I'm back up to 284 pounds and I feel terrible. No energy. I had to have a complete hysterectomy on March 21st and on Friday was given the OK to go back to work tomorrow (April 22nd) and I am ready. So I'm ready to get back at it and try try again.

My husband is looking at having to have dialysis in the next few months. He is in kidney failure. He goes into the hospital on May 2nd to have a fistula put in. We are not sure if he's going to be able to go back to work or not. So we are just waiting to see what happens.

My niece's husband was killed in a motorcycle accident on April 6th and it has just broken my heart. He leaves behind a wife and two boys age 5 and 14. He was such a good person and it has been such a tragedy. I have really seen that we just don't know how much time we have here on earth. I consider myself to be a christian, not perfect, but willing to work on this part of my life too.

    What heartbreak you are feeling! I wish I could be there to give you a hug in person. Stay strong, get healthy - by being the best "you" that you can be you will have the strength to help those around you. And please, lean on us. We have all been through challenges (and are still going through huge ones) but we are here for each other.

    The best start is to look at your goals - write new ones if you need to. Then really think about WHY they are important to you. It is through this focus that you will find the unbridled energy to make awesome things happen.

    Love and hugs to you!
