Great Sunday!

Monday, January 19, 2015

I went to church yesterday morning and they had a really good motivational speaker there! I was so glad I went. My friend Jackie was getting an award for her community service with the Glass Slipper that she founded back in 1997, and it is growing so big now, that it's about time she was recognized for all her hard work and time she has put into it over the years!

My other friend, Marsha, was there and we were watching Jackie's booth for her, so we were able to sit and talk for a long time. I sure miss those ladies and we plan on getting together more often now in 2015! Her DIL has stage IV cancer, and it is a rare cancer. They gave her a year to live, a year ago! she has 4 small children, and Marsha is taking care of them most of the time. Marshe is 63 years old and just gives her all to those kids and that family. They are both one of kind ladies in my book!

I have really got to make myself start going back to church again and helping out at the Glass Slipper!It is so rewarding and would really help me get out of this depression and feel like I was doing something again.

I did 52 minutes of exercise this morning and then had oatmeal with flax seed and quinoa and almond milk. It was really good, but really filling. I only had a half cup of oatmeal, but it turned out to be a whole bowl full by the time it was done cooking.
