Things have been much calmer around here since last week. When I wrote my last blog hubby and I were coming off a week where he nearly had a nervous breakdown and we found ourselves in the emergency room. We prayed and trusted God to get us through a very difficult time. The Lord has answered our prayers in more ways than one. I'm truly thankful that we have a mighty God. Thanks also to my friends here who helped to keep me encouraged. Sometimes it got a little hard to even workout during this time. I did continue to walk as much as possible and that has helped keep my weight down. I have gained a couple pounds back though. When I'm stressed that way I tend to eat and most of the time it's usually the wrong things. The best thing for me to remember though is not to stress too much about that. I just pick up from where I was and keep going.
Having some alone time with hubby has been wonderful. On Saturday afternoon he took me back to the place where we got engaged last year. It's a place near our house called "The Tower".....and we talked and that was the start of something beautiful for us. Since I'm so afraid of heights I didn't get on the tower. But it was just so nice to go somewhere so peaceful and quiet. If we had climbed the tower we could see for miles around Vanzant and the neighborhood. We're planning a picnic back there on our engagement anniversary in July. I can hardly wait. It's been such a positive spark in our marriage to spend time with each other this way. I'm just so thrilled that doing the simple things like this has helped us both to deal with stress. Taking time for yourself is so important. This has been one of the best Memorial Day weekends that I've ever had!

Amen. I am so glad that you are spending quality time with your hubby. I hope that he is ok and that he is slowing down a little because stress can cause a lot of harm. Stay well and keep a positive outlook and pray. It is always nice to wake up and say,"Thank you God, it is such a beautiful day and I am lucky to be here." Enjoy life and try and stress less for good health.
