An old lady made me think about life.
Saturday, September 28, 2013
Last night Ray and I took Cindy out for her walk. One of the old ladies was sitting out side. I waved to her and she yelled out in her squeaky voice "Oh you lost so much weight"
It was then and there that I realized that I look thinner and I looked good enough for someone to notice. I didn't have to TELL anyone I lost this or I lost that. It didn't matter at all.
At that time I thought of the story about the barrel of apples. The 1 about the farmer that always took a slightly bruised apple to eat, but never took the perfect one. With that, she never enjoyed a perfect apple. She always had a bruised one.
And it was that thought that finally made me realize that I was just fine right now. Not when I lose the last 6 lbs that I think I have to lose, to get to my goal. I am at my goal now.
