5 Deaths in my circle of family and friends in past 5 weeks
Thursday, March 06, 2014
I have had 5 deaths in my circle of family and friends in the past 5 weeks. Plus the death of my daughters dog of 10 years, and the death of my friends cat of 10 years. I have been praying lots for those affected by these deaths and clinging to my faith in God. He has brought much comfort to me and I try and share that with my family and friends affected.
At first, I was turning to food to numb me and gained 7 lbs the week after the first death. Then I lost it and yo yo'd between 170 and 172 the next 3 weeks. This past week I've stayed at 170. I am learning I feel better when I eat right and overeating only numbs me for awhile and then I'm mad at myself for binging.
Also last Friday we found out my Uncle has cancer but has a very good chance of recovery with 7 grueling weeks of radiation. please pray for him.
So, this is part of living, dying, and I am holding onto my faith and knowing God will help us through all of this.
Thank you for your encouragement.
