Well, I've been down here for 8 days now. Mama is now on bed rest with bathroom privileges only. We were up in the night with a bleed. She was able to stop it within 20 minutes. How funny that something as tiny as a nose bleed can change a life.... Read more

It is amazing what a difference perspective makes. And it is amazing how much knowledge can be freeing. DD still has work to do, it still may not get done, but in the big scheme of things it will all work out. I need to always remember that we s... Read more

I listen to my prayers and they concentrate on others instead of on me. I pray about all the ways I want others close to me to change their behaviors. The problem with this is that it keeps my focus off the only one that I can change and that wo... Read more

Have started swimming since the days are cold. Did a mile in the pool yesterday. Swimming is a great place for me to meditate and pray the laps away. I've been so unfaithful to tracking and measuring. Kinda in the rut of doing well for bre... Read more

Shorter walk in order to get to church on time. My neck is feeling better. I'm certainly doing lots of stretches and gently moving it to get it back to where it should be. So doing the tracking is surprising as always. How easy to overeat i... Read more
