Now is my Time
Saturday, February 25, 2017
After a long battle with dementia, my mother passed away last Sunday with my brothers and I by her side. We are thankful that she no longer hurts and is at peace.
So now it is time for me to take care of myself. I have realized that these past 2-3 years I have neglected myself to help take care of her. I have returned to drinking soda and making poor food choices. I have also stopped exercising. What has it done to me? I am at my heaviest at 266 pounds, feel tired, ache and am cranky.
Today is the beginning of my new journey, one in which I know I may take a detour or two, but one that I am excited to see what the future holds. I have much to live for and am ready to do so.
