The Eagles soar---
You know, I used to try to lose weight so I would look good---
Now I lose weight, to be healthy--
Eating healthy takes a lot of "mindfulness"--
-buying cottage cheese--- fruits and fresh vegetables--AND cooking the veggies-
-and doing this day after day after day--- journaling the foods --
Gardening in my bug suit here, doesn't exactly make my hair look good---
-and I had to go to the stores for fresh foods post "day in the garden" time--
I noticed that I had become invisible ----standing to get help at a counter, the salesperson completely overlooked me--choosing to help a younger, more shapely lady with the perfectly shaped body and hair that resembled a model-
I stood in line waiting my turn, but I kept hearing my Mom in my ears saying, "The good Lord helps those who help themselves."-
"Lord love a Duck!"---I thought--- "I have become that little old-er person who I used to smile at."
-but---- it seems like only yesterday, Himself and I used to "trip the light fantastic"--
Maybe I need to shout a little louder-----tell the world that my insides look all sparkly---
--And my garden is coming along--- --
Accept what I can't change-- Life is what we make it!--and--
"Soar with those Eagles!"
