August Log, Blog and Salad Challenge - Day 9

Monday, August 09, 2010

Nutrition and exercise are logged. Posted 3 smileys. Logged the challenge points.

Many of you are aware that my father is with me. He is good company, and I'm so glad I can be home with him during this time. We've had good times, running errands together, visiting restaurants, going to church and concerts, visiting friends and family. As he became more frail, I wondered how long we would still be able to do that.
Now as we morph into homebodies, others come to us. We use some home services. My sister relieves me every week so I can run errands.
A big thanks to my very special Spark friends who have walked with me and prayed for me and let me talk.

Change can be devastating. It can be a window of opportunity. This is a new phase. What do I want from this phase?

Being on the challenge this month has been empowering. So many things are outside of my control. This challenge is helping me to focus on the things I can control.

    Bless you for caring for your father in his latter years. May God grant you strength, peace, and joy in your journey...and health and the realization of fulfilling your own potential as you go.

    I know where your coming from Annie, I am also fortunate to still have my Mom, she is 91, and still going strong, she is relatively healthy and still lives on her own(seniors complex) I notice she is slowing down a bit in her golden years, memory is getting sketcy, but still there for all her children, and grandchildren....A joy!

    Spark has really taken me out of my doldrums, I come in here and talk with everyone, and it's wonderful, my spark friends know what it's like to try to conquer all the hidden issues behind our weight gains....

    One day at a time Annie..we never know what lies ahead for us!
