Day of Thanksgiving

Sunday, June 22, 2014

youtu.be/4ooK66xOpZg This has been in my head and what a wonderful way to see and accept the day.

Friday was my first outing - I attended a diabetic education class like no other. I initially was going to opt out but I am incredibly glad I did not. The instructor was vibrant and discussed new research and new ways. The old diabetic diet is out the window - woohoo, not they suggest 0-2 servings of fish or poultry a day. It was great to see that meat was not a mainstay. It still was a bit much for me, but my d-I-l mom attended with me and I used a wheel chair, so that made it bearable. We then went to Subway, where I had a vegan delite salad and onward home.

Since my apt was changed for my into for cardiac rehab, I will attend on Tuesday. I did ride my recumbent bike for a little since it was too hot to walk outside. Small step, slow steps, I am not in a hurry to go anywhere or do anything.

Hubby is fixing great food and was a bit upset with me because I am not being a big enough eater and then he apologized and just as long as I get in a little he is fine now. Every day is just a day of Thanksgiving and for that I am grateful.

I appreciate all the well wishes even though I have not responded to all, please know that it brings me joy and I thank you.

    I love what you shared first and favored a bit the second half more though emoticon
    I love that you are mending and as well celebrating victories.
    I had a sales clerk at a Chico's tell me once that the dress I was admiring would never fit me. I bought it and told her, "someday it will" it does!
    Yes, you are heading in all the right directions and the ensemble sounds beautiful. I am so very happy for you Ms. Jacki. The power of healing and good Godly care.
    Your daughter is beautiful like her mama.
    God Bless,

    How absolutely wonderful that you are healing/recovering and moving ahead in health.
    Thank God Ms. Jacki that you are here with us( I am being selfish) I know God has so much more for you to do. I know He holds you in His healing hands and loves you so much. God is Love and I know in my heart He is filling you full with it all!
    I am so happy that you are healing and have love around you taking great care of you.

    I'm GALD that everything is moving along in the right direction. Sounds like you had a wonderful day of thanksgiving and new beginnings. I decided that I'm going to FIGHT emoticon back and take a stand in my life. Sometimes I don't take a lot of things "personal" like I should when it comes to me, but now I'm going to live.
    Remember when I said to you...You're FINE NOW! Well, I'm FINE NOW TOO. I need to start my fashionista journey and be thankful for being me.
    I will celebrate, but I sometimes find a release in venting --venting opens up doors I blocked off. Now I'm thankful for GOD and this LIFE and he has been showing me through so many faces, so many words and speeches not to back down.
    We are winners!
    We are QUEENS!
    We will heal through Christ who strengthens us.
    Peace & Blessings
