Hello everyone, today's blog is a bit different from anything I have written on this blog before. Here we are in November the month of thanks and appreciating all that is different in one another and celebrating those differences. I want to add that I am thankful every single day for my family, friends and for my faith. I understand that some do not believe and that is ok I am not here to change your mind but just open myself up and explain where I feel more connected and loved. When I was younger I would go to Sunday school, church and participated in youth groups. I would pray every day for those I cared about and for those I did not and those I had yet to know. I still pray every day but I have been very lackadaisical about heading out to church. I feel that through the signs I have seen and unexplainable things that could only come from God himself I feel the lord is calling more and more of us to his house of worship. I feel this is something I want to do where for me it makes all the pieces relevant for my life.
Changing the tides here a little bit I have a small update for you all in my lifestyle change. I have to date lost a total of 28 pounds. I had a doctor's appointment that confirmed my lifestyle is working for me. My blood pressure with the help of medication is at a normal level and my medication doesn't need to be changed ever since I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I have to go for some blood work sometime within the next 6 months before my next appointment.
With Thanksgiving around the corner I have so many feelings so many fond memories of thanksgivings past and so much excitement for those to come. Its not so much the food as it is the company in which you share your food with. Even though some things have changed on my father's side of the family, I still consider everyone a part of my family as if it were 8 or more years ago. I miss them very much and I wish nothing but good fortune and love for them all. They know who they are if they are reading this. Thanksgiving shouldn't be just reserved for November but all year long. I hope this silly little blog has found you all at a good place and I hope and wish wonderful things for you all. Until we meet again I hope you all live, laugh and love.
