challenges

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

This morning I found myself sleeping until 7:00 so my walk was postponed until 9:00. I said my prayers and called on my friends to help me. When I get off schedule I tend to use this as an excuse to forego some of the most important things rather than reorganizing and making my day work for me. Getting things out of sync happens frequently and yesterday too was a day of challenges. I had painted and was prepared to rest that evening but a phone call from our next door neighbor developed into a night of euchre. By the way Donna and I lost as usual. LOL Popcorn was popped but I did not partake. It's not something I crave but it seems it just something to do. Why do we do something just because it's there.

It rained today and Bob and I decided to browse the furniture stores. It's been awhile since we've looked at furniture and the prices seem to be a lot higher than I remember. We plan to start some renovations but not until after the first of the year. We went to the orchard and purchased some apples. Bob has gone to play euchre at the KC Hall and the evenings are sometimes hard for me to keep abstinent. These are times when it is so easy to eat those foods I tend not to eat in front of others. It's not that I dislike being alone. I enjoy having the time to myself but it is a time I feel entitled to eat and not out of hunger. So this evening I straightened my sewing room a little bit. I sure can get things out of place in there very easily.

Bob has returned home so the rest of the evening will be easier. Challenges have been met and today I've been able to persevere. Today is all I'm promised and it's all I have to contend with.

Positives and Gratitudes..............being filled spiritually.................my morning walk...............time spent with Bob...................the rain.....................Bob's back home.................not allowing free time to contribute to self indulgence...............accom
plishing tasks.................God (I'm so fortunate to have the Father Son and Holy Spirit to be by my side).

    Way to meet your challenges. Evenings are the toughest for some reason. I'm trying the earlier bedtime strategy, which is easy when I have to get up and out by 6:30 a.m. You're doing a great job. (you and your 3 friends!) Have a great evening.
    Love,
