Survivors

Thursday, December 06, 2012

emoticon Survivors...thats what we are. Were surviving the battle of the bulge. Our own demons, trying to start over, an new begining for most of us. We make mistakes and we forgive ourselves and we try harder the next time. But what if there is no next time? For some of us there won't be a next time...My friend who is morbidly obese was told days ago she had 2 months to live. Well they were mistaken it's actually only a matter of a couple of weeks or even days. We have already called hospice in. I can only wonder what if... What if I had been a better friend. what if I had encouraged her more to eat healthier, to get out more. I mean we both love to garden, I could have gone over more often and gardened with her. I just don't know. But I do know that we can encourage each other. We can love each other and we can remind each other that we are doing this for our selves. We can tell each other honestly to step up and record all our foods the good and the not so good. We can get a buddy to be honest enough to say, hey whats going on you didn't do so good today. Do you need to talk? And we can be Thankful and pray daily for strenth and guidance. Because we are Survivors and we have each other. I love all of you Spark People in Christ Jesus

    Sorry to hear about your friend. It's very sad losing someone you love.
    The world seems so fast these days that we forget to take time out for each other. To say hello, how are you doing. But more importantly, listening to the answer.
    I'm in both groups - Chair and Indy's, so I'm usually around.
    All the best to you.
