Since being at Sparkpeople I have lost 53 lbs. I have 31 lbs to go to get to goal. It has been a long process of trying this and trying that.to final find what works for. me. I am a work in process...It is a mental challenge as well as physical one....For me it took time to learn to love and accept myself..that God loves me and accepts me
even with all my short comings...I am a caregiver to my husband who has dementia..he has entered Hospice..the Drs have given him less than a year to live...Every day is a challenge and thankfully I do not have time to stop and ponder all that I am going through...There is a saying.."If God is all you have then God is all you need." That is certainly proving true for me....I am learning to lean on him...I am blessed to have a good friend who is always there when I need to talk,about anything, who accepts me unconditionally. I take one day at time and learning to face my fears

Other Information:


I have learned that..

You can't go back and change an experience.
You can't make it un-happen.

But you can change how you feel in this moment... about that experience.

You can change how you perceive that experience.

You can change what meaning you give that experience and what suffering or joy you create long after the experience has passed.

    emoticon emoticon FOR MOTHER'S DAY~~JUST A MOM emoticon emoticon

    She cant stand it when people say, "You're JUST a mom?"
    Yes, she is JUST A MOM!!
    That makes her an alarm clock, cook, maid, waitress,
    teacher, nurse, referee, handyman, security officer,
    photographer, counselor, chauffeur, event planner,
    hairdresser, personal assistant, & an ATM machine.
    She scares away the boogieman. She doesn't get paid holidays,
    sick pay or days off. She works DAY & NIGHT.
    She's on call 24/7 for the rest of her life.
    She's 'JUST A MOM'!!!
    She is a Mom to someone or to many and she would
    do ANYTHING on this planet for them!
    She's..... 'JUST A MOM"!!.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the MOTHER'S,
    the Mother's you have, and all the Mother's you know! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    MOTHER'S DAY

    You can see it in their eyes,
    in tender hugs and long good-byes,
    a love that only moms, sons and daughters know.

    You can see it in their smiles,
    through passing years and changing styles,
    a friendship that continually seems to grow.

    You can see it in their lives,
    the joy each one of them derives,
    in just knowing that the other one is there...

    To care and to understand,
    lend an ear or hold a hand,
    and to celebrate the memories they share.

    emoticon What is a Mother? - Katherine Nelson Davis

    A mother is someone to shelter and guide us,
    To love us, whatever we do,
    With a warm understanding and infinite patience,
    And wonderful gentleness, too.
    How often a mother means swift reassurance
    In soothing our small, childish fears,
    How tenderly mothers watch over their children
    And treasure them all through the years!
    The heart of a mother is full of forgiveness
    For any mistake, big or small,
    And generous always in helping her family
    Whose needs she has placed above all.
    A mother can utter a word of compassion
    And make all our cares fall away,
    She can brighten a home with the sound of her laughter
    And make life delightful and gay.
    A mother possesses incredible wisdom
    And wonderful insight and skill -
    In each human heart is that one special corner
    Which only a mother can fill! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
