I have had some crucial conversations at work and need to make some decisions by Monday, however, that may be somewhat delayed as I had to return home Friday for a family emergency. I have been here for one day and my life's perspective has been made very clear to me.
Unfortunately, it takes a family issue to bring my mortality to the forefront. I realized this week how much I miss my parents and siblings. I need to make more time to visit, to say I love you, to sing happy birthday over the phone, to just get in the car and drive to see them, for no special occasion at all. I came very close to losing my mother, and it took my breath away. My children, my sisters, my parents, my nieces and nephews, all tangible, physical beings that are a part of my circle and I have been so neglectful. I pray that the Creator gives me another chance to strengthen our bonds.
On the diet side of things, I have been vigilant regarding raw foods, though by no means 100 percent but about 90 percent of my daily intake. My weight, since my birthday on 12/26 has gone from 230 lbs. to 200 lbs.
My clothes are looking rather big on me. That is fine with me though because I am getting closer to my goal. I have yet to visit the gym but now that I have finished moving furniture, I can concentrate on this step in my lifestyle change.
Please keep my family in your thoughts.
