"We shall never pass this way again"

Saturday, December 31, 2011

JUST 11 MORE HOURS AND ANOTHER YEAR WILL HAVE PASSED INTO ETERNITY. The good, the bad, the ugly, and the blessings and lessons therein, will have passed with the numbers 2011. The year may be gone, but what transpired in the old year will be with us, individually, and corporately, forever and ever. One of the blessings is that "We shall never pass this way again," and one of the regrets is that "We shall never pass this way again." I don't remember the author of that famous line, but my late husband adopted it as his quote in his HS yearbook many moons ago. MANY MOONS?! Nobody says that anymore !! I must be getting old! Yeah, time has a way of doing that to you! But I also like the saying "I'm not getting older, I'm getting better!" Think I'll go with the latter for today.
Oh, and before I forget, I made what will probably be one of the great decisions of 2011 before it passes; I have decided to forgo my private pizza party for tonight. I'm thinking to make myself a nice award corsage to wear today for that decision. (Considering that my feet are like balloons, and my legs like sausages, I just did myself a VERY BIG FAVOR.) So in 2011, I got maybe a little smarter, a little wiser, and learned to care for me a little better. Giving in to everything that spoiled little chubby inner child wants is not the way to go! The Mommy is in charge of me! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
A HAPPY, HEALTHY, BLESSED NEW YEAR TO ALL OF MY DEAR SPARK FRIENDS emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Upon re-reading this I had to make another comment. You wrote: "(Considering that my feet are like balloons, and my legs like sausages, I just did myself a VERY BIG FAVOR.)

    How often I've described my swollen toes as sausages & my legs as balloons. It's a problem with salt & kidney issues in the past. Sometimes it feels like the skin is going to split & it HURTS! I do anything I can to avoid that feeling. I limit my olive intake to one sliced on a salad twice a week. I can't remember WHEN I had pizza last & don't really want it. I think I might take a flour tortilla with salsa & put mozzarella on it one day this week. LOL

    My spoiled little fat inner child sometimes throws tantrums about wanting something & I compromise with her by eating dessert first. That's the way I avoid the "old think" "You have to finish your meal before you can eat dessert" that I was brought up with.

    ::sheesh:: I almost wrote a whole blog here. Thanks so much for sharing in yours. We'll continue to learn together my friend.
