IT'S BEGINING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS

Well, It's UP. Through Christ ALL things are possible. I'm so excited. Today, Thursday, December 11th, my two dear friends, Debbie and Kathy, came over and helped trim my Christmas Tree. It was a loooooooooooooooooooooooooong morning but I stuck in there and enjoyed each second that was spent on my beautiful Tree. WOW, Wayne surprised me last Monday and when I had called him on the way home from my Specialist's appt. and told him I had to have my feet numbed and get a cort shot, and the pain I was in, he surprised me and he had the wreaths lit in the two front windows and he had the tree up, not decorated, but up. I was so happy and greatful. Today, when I was going through the ornaments, it was like memory lane. I saw Harley's first ornament that I had gotten him and it was dated 2004. It was amazing the memories of that year, it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I say the worst as I was in rehab. The best of times as he became my service dog and best friend. It amazed me thinking wow time has gone by. I saw ornaments that I had made with my grandchildren's name. WOW, had one, then two, then three, then four and now we have five.... I need to get one made with Ryleigh's name. Four Grandsons, one Granddaughter.

Life goes on. It was so much fun sharing the fun with Debbie and Kathy. They are my Monday Bible Study Partners. We are studying The Purpose Driven Life. It is a very good read.

Our neighbors all have their houses decorated and the lights are beautiful. My friend came over this week and helped me "bag" all the gifts. I decided to bag everything, much easier than having to wrap all of it. Heck, the kids could care less. hehe

Harley is wondering where his presents are. He is watching very closely on what Mom is doing.

I had such thanks to GOD for saving my precious Harley when we almost lost him this year. He was so close to not making it. I am so thankful for all the prayers we rec'd. As I was doing my tree I had some thoughts, BELIEVE, HOPE, FAITH I Believe there is still recovery for me, I keep the HOPE alive and my FAITH has just gotten stronger and stronger.

 

OK: BIG NEWS FLASH

I am joining Weight Watchers next Tuesday. WHOOO HOOOOOO I have prayed and prayed abou this and which program would be good for me. My Cardiologist has wanted me to go to Weight Watchers,She feels it is the best program out there. Well, since I live in the country there aren't any near me. I prayed and prayed for one to be available closer to me. I found out this week, there is one that has just started at a Church about 5-7 miles from me. This is what I always call:

IT'S A GOD THING...... wow, i called them and the girl was so friendly and helpful and welcomed me with open arms. I told her about me as she asked and she said wow you seem like such an inspiration and I can't wait to meet you. She took my number and I truly feel now I am on the one part of my journey I truly need. So, I will keep everyone posted. I plan on going next Tuesday. I shared with her my theory, if you build it, they will come, well, world, I am going. She said they have about 25-30 people that go. I pray maybe I can have someone in my area that goes and I could get a ride with them. Wayne isn't too happy about having to bring me and go pick me up. I told her I was in a wheelchair and she said no problem. They are very accessible. She said the people usually socialize afterward. So, that is what I need. I am a people person and I miss that. But, heck, Tuesday is going to be a great day.

It has been pouring down rain all day and this week. I guess it is better than snow.

Well, I am going to make this entry short as I am very tired.

My best to all. I need to work on my Christmas Cards the rest of this week.

Thank you for stopping by and checking in .....

One day at a time, One second at a time, Life is good.

Jan,

 

I have been going to weight watchers for a year and a half and really like it. I made lifetime almost a year ago so I am not so much in the losing phase but in the maintaining. Finding a leader who is able to connect with you makes a big difference. Hopefully your leader will be as amazing as mine. I like to go on Tuesdays as well, so if you ever want to chat about the meeting topics (they are the same no matter where you attend) I will gladly do so. Just know you have a WW buddy here if you find you need some support or just want a "bravo".

Jan, things are busy at your household. Please keep us posted on your first WW meeting. I am praying it goes well and that you will be able to socialize afterwards. I am like you in that I enjoy being around people.
