Week 1

So I went to my first support group meeting. I loved it! It was people who were dealing with the same things i was. The leader asked us what were three things we wanted to work on.

So here are mine.....

1. Forgiveness of others who do not meet my exceptions
2. Realize I can only change me and not others.
3. Stay focused on the future and not the past and its feelings towards the past.

Also she asked us to think about the things that we like to do the most.

So here are mine.....

1. drawing and painting
2. scrapbooking
3. spending time with my friends and family
4. reading
5. playing with my animals
6. play and teach kids
7. writing
8. talking and socializing with others
9. photography
10. feeling helpful

So as the week goes until we meet again these are my focuses. I have been writing and journaling. I will continue to do this as i work towards a better future.

Wow! Has it been that long?

Time seems to fly by...I haven't written here in a long time. Not want I wanted. After A back injury late last year. January started with appointments at the Chiropractor. Two months and $500 later. I was feeling great. So much has happened since then and the last time i wrote on here. My Aunt Teresa had to go into a rehab, aftter a month of being there. She woke up and couldnt breathe. We were told my doctors to say goodbye. It was a hard moment. She has been battling lung cancer for 18 months now. family started heading to Houston from all directions. We had planned to pull the tubes out of her mouth Monday morning. Would you believe it but after the tubes came out. She was talking and acting like Teresa. Such a blessing.

That week I was in and out of the hospital visiting her I was able to reflect on what had happen and how things were going. People who i felt should be there, weren't. People who didnt have too, said they would if i needed them too. And some people didnt seem to care at all. I was disappointed. I have learned what people are really there in a time of need and which ones are not. I am thankful for the ones whose prayers, love and support where with me and my family.

I also notice that week that i was stronger then I ever thought i could be. I knew god was with me and that i had all the love and support i needed. For that I will be forever greatful.
