I Feel Good

Thursday, May 09, 2013

Wow, my blogs have changed since Summer came into our lives. I feel good. I am not negative all the time anymore. I was a little upset last night when I saw in some results that my sister won at a horse show with a horse she raised who is a half sister to JC. I do miss talking to her about it, but she made her choice. Looking at results, she has been showing all over. I still don't feel bad about not letting her sell my mom's stuff that I have. She is spending close to 10k per horse show. If she can afford that, she didn't need what I have.

I came to a conclusion last night reading those results. While I feel very sad about this, there is nothing I can do to change it. She made this decision that we were no longer close years ago when I stopped showing.

My life is very full with what I have. I have my kids who have been super helping me with the older dog who falls and we have to be careful with her. They help with the younger dog. My daughter makes me breakfast. My son is cleaning the house. My husband cooks and does the shopping. I think I have it pretty good!

My weight is down now 9 lbs from when I got the Aria. The epidural seems to have helped. I can't leave out special boy. I am so much more active now with Summer in the house. We are outside a lot and (this one is for Connie) we go to the doggie parks and watch the birds. Even Sydney is more active.

I think I have made some positive changes in my life :)

I finally is good!

    Isn't it so wonderful that we can CHOOSE how to feel about each day? Sometimes it's a little harder to be positive and upbeat on some days...but we still have the opportunity and the wonderful blessings of CHOICE!

    I'm GLAD that you stood up for yourself on your mother's things. You were just as entitled to them as your siblings. It's so sad how siblings all war over 'stuff' DH has a sister that he says can have EVERYTHING his mother has when she passes on. I totally agree....this sister has never been married, has never even really dated as far as the 35 years I've known her.

    They are two miserable little peas in a pod living together all these far as I'm concerned she's earned every measly possession her mother owns...she has earned whine time! emoticon emoticon

    It's great that you are getting out there in God's beautiful world...and YAY for the kids for pitching in. Your hubs hat's off to them.

    Hugs and blessings are zipping your way! emoticon emoticon

    It's hard to lose a person who you once were close to but it sounds like what you have is right for you so I'm glad you have your kids and hubbie. Tthat you are down 9 lbs is no small accomplishment.

    Happy to hear that both Sydney & Summer are being active, which in turn makes you more active. It's a win-win!

    Well, glad you think of me out there in those parks enjoying the birds and nature! Isn't it wonderful to stop and spell the roses so to speak. Since biking and walking more, I just get filled with joy. So happy for you Nina! When I left my last comment I didn't realize you had a new dog! That is too cool! Check out my new blog, I promised everyone I would post a video of me on my new bike and I did. I wanted to wait until I looked ok and wasn't wobbling all over the place like I was at first! Now I can take my hands off the handlebars and not start to fall! Despite our past family problems we are getting out there and making a better life for ourselves without them! I know how you feel though-you know that. Take care and have lots of fun with life! Good for Sydney too! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wonderful to hear you so upbeat!! Sorry to hear about your sister - but as my blog's poster from today said... if someone is meant to be in our life they will be there (even if it's family). emoticon
