Another Mothers Day

Another Mother's Day comes and goes. I do have to admit that I got a card from both of my sons plus phone calls so all is well. My life has given me a lot of curves but the one sure thing I have had is my two sons and all the pride that comes with that.
So here I am, starting another journey in my life. Oh come on! you have seen it every where, EAT HEALTHY, LOSE THAT EXTRA FAT. The choices go on.... Weight Watchers, Richard Simmons, Atkins, South Beach, Biggest Loser, and on and on and on. Eating is an addiction to some and I am one of the people. I am going on the plan this time that you have to Eat to Live. Now I have quit smoking so I know I can lick this also. You are invited to come along for the ride. I started today with a little dance, some oatmeal, and all my pills that I have to take. (Yes, I am also going to get myself off of all diabetes meds by the time I am done with this) I have mopped a floor and I continue.
When I think about how I gave up so much to take care of my mother, a mother who has told me my whole life how I am going to die at 30 as an old maid. Well I did get married, to the first man that asked (wonder why) but i lived past 30, and now I take care of my mother who cant even remember me as a kid let alone being married. All she knows is that when she was 15 years old she was a dancer. Why do I take care of her after she treated me like that you ask? Because I loved my dad, I look at it as doing this for him. My dad was my hero, he truly loved me unconditionally. Never did he call me a name, never did he show hate in his actions, my dad loved me.
Now you have a small intro to my life. You will learn more as we go on. So hang on, the road will be bumpy, and smooth. I will be upset some days, happy others but together we will meet this goal. I hope to make new friends on this journey. Talk to you tomorrow.
