Sunday Thoughts

I have some friends that are going through times of uncertainty. I say that it will get better as it did for me but they are still unsure.

God takes us through something, I believe, to help those that go through it later. He brings you into their lives to show that His grace is enough.

Circumstances might be different, but the pain and healing are the same.

Looking back on my life, I never thought that I would be one to encourage others.

I am feeling blessed with my past (as difficult as it has been), because of who He has placed in my path. It is my choice if I assist, encourage or help. He places those that might need me to help…I feel anyway.

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

Carmen and I flew home yesterday to 74 degree weather. We unpacked our bags, changed clothes, and headed to the beach.

We live about 15 minutes away so it’s not a long drive except during everyone’s spring break! It took about 40 minutes to get there but so worth it.

We ate some oysters and crab claws, and our bodies were thankful.

My mind and heart are thankful as well. I had a wonderful experience with Carmen. I love our friendship and the way it has blossomed with her aging.

Thankful to God for both of my adult children even with the trials and tribulations. They continue to make my heart happy.

“I thank God every time I remember you.” – Philippians 1:3 NIV

What are you thankful for today?

Blessings.

Be

Be a best friend. Simple, right? This is hitting home today. I feel as though I don’t have enough time to be the best friend that I should be.

Looks like this will be mindful goal for next year.

Have you been thinking about your goals, and what you need to work on for next year?

Blessings.

Mountain

Passion Planner motivation for last week.  Crazy simple idea, right?

What have you learned through your No’s and Yes’s?  Sometimes it is hard to reflect…but it is so important, isn’t it?

Happy to have my no’s and my one yes.  Happy to be able to reflect.

Blessings.

Knees

So after a 115 pound weight loss:

Apparently per my rheumatologist I am no longer bone on bone with my knees!  I am to take it easy with exercise, and to build up the muscle around my knees, but for the most part, I can start doing things I want to do as long as my body allows it.

Dancing, yoga, jogging—really anything I want to try.

2 Years ago yesterday…was my gastric sleeve surgery and while I am not at my lowest weight I am no where near my heaviest! I have had some regain but no guilt. I am so very grateful for my path here.

So…blessings today and always!

Thread

An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance.  The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.  May you be open to each thread that comes into your life —the golden ones and the coarse ones —and may you weave them into a brilliant and beautiful life.

Thankful for the golden and coarse threads in my life journey.

Blessings!
