happy late birthday to me

Well, my birthday was Friday.  I am 42!!  I feel so old with my failing physical stature from hospital stays and weight gain.  I am working on that and having a start to success here.  Why do we so often have to be so old to really get the true will power to want to change?  I think experiencing the truth of aging goes a long way. Aches, pains etc..

Nice birthday.  Ate a little off but not horrible.  I am juice fasting for the day today.  Braveheart had some juice this morning with a warm bowl of oatmeal and a cornucopia of legal drugs! Haaa.  He went back to bed.  I can't wait until he can be off of the meds that make his face still be puffy.  His weight is too high so dealing with that.  Clinic tomorrow bright and early.

MILESTONE:

BRYCE WILL BE 6 MONTHS POST TRANSPLANT ON FRIDAY!!!

LOVING:

WWW.LOSEIT.COM TO HELP HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE WITH WHAT I EAT.

SAD NOTE:

MY GRANNY IS VERY SAD WITH SO MANY THINGS HAPPENING IN ADDITION TO HER YOUNGEST DAUGHTER HAVING DIED AND TOMORROW WILL HAVE BEEN HER BIRTHDAY!  PLEASE SEND PRAYERS AND COMFORT.

Love you all...Me

Praying for a safe drive. Take baby steps with your weight. Start with one thing and make it a habit. Hey! I know. Would not step on the scale and hated myself. Slowly, but surely it is going down. Give glory to God!

Happy Belated Birthday. I am way behind on emails, updates, etc. I was just reading the brycelove updates and praising God for you! You have such an amazing positive attitude. All of your lovely children are blessed to call you mom!

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
