Thank You...

I would just like to Thank everyone that has lifted my family up in prayer this past week... it has been very hard & I just want you to know that the prayers are helping. Just when I feel like I can't go on - I feel a gentle nudge and a peace & I know that God has me wrapped in his hands.

I want to share the poem that I wrote for my momma...

I can't see you
But I know you're here
I carry my memories
In my heart - very near.
I miss you with every breath
And your precious face
There is no one that could ever
Take your place.
A childhood of memories
By a life so blessed
Being your daughter
Is simply the best.
Your with Jesus now momma
Your body is whole
But it doesn't make it any easier
To let you go.
You gave me everything
You gave me life
You were my momma
And my daddy's wife.
In God I find comfort
Just as you did
Peace comes from knowing
And being a Kings Kid.
I'll see you again
My goal - Heaven Bound
You'll know I'm coming
By my "halleuiah" sound.
Flutter your angel wings
Eat brownies galore
Rest peacefully now my momma
Your inside Heaven's door.

What sweet words for your momma!! I've been praying for you and your family. I'm so glad that God is showing you His peace and comfort!!

As for your comment on my blog, I'm more than happy to give you any advice you need. I've found that at my age - eating is HUGE. I'd give my best effort in that area. As for exercise, I'd recommend starting off slowly... try to do some form of cardio (walking, eliptical, bike, swimming - whatever you can do and enjoy) and do it at least 3 days a week. Walking is GREAT! But, the key is to walk hard enough to be able to talk, but you don't really feel like you want to. (That's the intensity you need to be at.) Take it easy at first... you don't want an injury!!

You can add some resistance training or workout DVDs... depending on your access to equipment, etc. You can email me if you have any questions!
