Almost 38, which is almost 40 ??

What is it with aging? When we are young we want to be teens. When we are teens we want to be adults. When we are adults we want to be married with families of our own. Never have I ever wished to be a grandparent. Why is that? Society tells us wrinkles and gray hair are not acceptable or pretty. Society says, the weight you gain, that makes you have curves (not the unhealthy weight gain) is ugly and you should never leave your home. Yet, watching old I Love Lucy re-runs, back then size 12 was the go to size.
I can not believe I will be 38 in a matter of weeks. I got on the scale and wanted to cry. I am looking to attend my 20th year high school graduation. I can not believe how crazy fast time goes by.

The Lord has been so good. He has blessed through all the years. Without His guidance I could have so many regrets. It may sound silly to say, but I am thankful for the gray, I cover; the weight, I am working on losing; and the life I have. Be thankful for the thing the Lo…

Eye Exams

We spent the morning at the eye doctor's today. Philip had broken his glasses at camp and with the craziness of life we never got them replaced. Today we were able to get them replaced. All three got their eyes checked only Philip got glasses. Elisabeth was SO disappointed. She said, "mommy, please tell the doctor I NEED glasses, they are cute on me." She had found a cute pair of pink little girl glasses. They were cute on her (sorry no camera). We had to talk and tell her that the doctor knows best. She was still sad but understood. Even though later she was heard telling her dad that she wants her eyes to be bad, so that she can wear glasses.

Then we went grocery shopping and saved $16 in coupons. The library was next and then home. Actually, home for 5 minutes and then out with the hubby for another 2 hours.

It was a full day.

Been some time

WOW! I will be surprised if anyone still reads this. Facebook seems to be all consuming--yet we still don't keep in touch like we want. The Lord has been so good. We have gone through a lot of changes but the Lord has been always faithful.

We as humans focus on the silly things. I focus on my awful weight gain. Then I think, what is more important--my weight gain or my walk with the Lord? I know the answer. Not to say I haven't joined the YMCA in the last week.

I am thankful for God's daily grace. I enjoy His grace everyday. Without it, how awful life would be.
