My world changed ever so slightly Saturday. My 3 year old grandson moved in with me. The story of why he lives with me I will save for a later time. He and I have always had a strong bond. We had a good weekend together. Today was to be his first day at "school" (new daycare). He was excited to go until he got there. I stayed with him about 30 minutes then left him crying. I cried all the way to work and then some. Neither of us expected the change. I had a little more time to prepare than he did. I have cancelled my gym membership but anticipate joining the YMCA this week. Gym membership is just a small change for me. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day. Without him I would have been at the nearest national park on a trail. With him I took a short walk around the block with a big pace/time increase. LOL But it's all going to be okay. For 3 years he has been one of the small reasons I have continued to push forward to a healthier life style. Saturday he became the biggest reason. He needs me to be healthy and alive for as long as possible. He is so worth it.
