I’m a Loser!
What the what?
Yes, I’ve already lost so many things and now I want to lose more!
In the last 14 months I’ve lost…
👉my prescriptions for anxiety and depression, extreme discomfort, asthma and allergies/hives (8 total!)
👉3 inches in my waist
👉1 inch in my hips
👉my sugar cravings
👉bloating and gas
👉my winter blues (aka that BLAH feeling)
👉the NEED to nap
👉one credit card debt
Just look at the OLD ME~
I’d like to apologize to the woman who I barked at today…and the people I barked at yesterday…there’s no excuse. Yes I was tired and have overdone it getting ready for this Estate Sale, but it’s no excuse. I hope you accepted my apology today as you seemed wary, which I would have been too!

Fall is here and it brings with it a renewed sense of energy for me – I love the cooler temps, the beauty of the colored leaves, the bonfires, the fact that school is back in session and learning is in progress and with the falling leaves brings the sense of renewal.

And while the earth lays dormant we strongly walk on.
As it is with God’s grace.
Through tough times, God continues to show us beauty and even if we don’t acknowledge Him, He lays dormant in our hearts waiting for us to let His light shine in.
And then Spring arrives and with it the beauty of renewed life.
It’s in that moment in our lives that we acknowledge that He’s been with us all along.
Our lives awaken just like the flowers bloom.
God is good.

My sadness comes from the loss of my very special, sweet father-in-law whose body succumbed to Alzheimer’s this summer…and from the loss of 2 wonderful friends this fall…and from the impending loss of another dear friend, given only days to live.
All three were extraordinary people…giving of themselves to help others: Read more
