Grateful my lesson for the Women’s Retreat is taking shape
Insecurity- Not my problem Piece of cake!
Thankful I am OK with my appearance
In my relationship
Confident with the approval of others
Boom! Crash! I misplaced a check. I don’t have it. Treasurer doesn’t have it. Help!
Insecurity storm!*#! Instantly I am unworthy and afraid. But in the study I have learned coping tools. Grateful for them as my heart races and my mind hurls insults at me.
I pray. I read a devotional that reminds me to reach out to friend.
Friend reassures me.
Peace and patience with myself.
What me worry? You bet I do but I can overcome it.

Finding the error (not mine!)
The last bill of August in the mail
Hubby’s good blood sugars
Cold water on a hot day

“One of the odd things about middle age, he concluded, was the strange decisions a man discovers he’s made by not really making them, like allowing friends to drift away through simple neglect.” Richard Russo, Empire Falls
Choosing Subway salad instead of tailgate food
Finding the camera though we took few pictures
The atmosphere of a ball park
Seeing lots of friends
Watching the storm clouds build. Awesome but powerful!
Cell phone of friend shows severe thunderstorm in the area
Deciding to leave
Choosing to spend my Canal bucks on popcorn
Getting only a little wet
Finding each other when Hubby didn’t know where I parked
Watching God’s fireworks all the way home
3. Mentors and other networks separate and no real separation

8. Lessening of discomfort
9. Reading a great book, choked by emotion, not wanting it to end
“The problem with the contemplative life was that there was no end to contemplation, no fixed time after which thought had to be transformed into action. Contemplation was like sitting on a committee that seldom made recommendations and was ignored when it did, a committee that lacked even the authority to disband.” Richard Russo, Empire Falls
So grateful Hubby is adhering to his new lifestyle
Amazing age we live in with medical advances
Visiting the pool for an hour yesterday. I was SO tired last night. Grateful for an early bedtime.
Weigh in showed we’d both lost weight. He had lost 15 lbs.
Steph’s two phone calls yesterday. One to my Hubby to say Jerry had passed on then one to me to chat. My grand daughter is so sweet.
Grateful to Gavin who was a rock solid force when they needed him as Jerry left them in death.
Hopeful that he will stay safe and secure
A mini Ursula Funko Pop Given in love I will cherish it!
