Good by July!!

July is almost over, and I am GLAD!!! emoticon

Usually I am one of those moaning--where did my month go, I didn't get everything done I needed to do.. emoticon

But this time I am celebrating, because this month has been filled with radiation treatments for my dear Mom. emoticon And those treatments are 180 miles round trip every week day!! emoticon But her last treatment is Monday August 3rd, so I am happy to flip the calendar page!! emoticon

My counseling business has had a few clients, but I haven't really given it the time and attention it requires. And I'm ok with that too. emoticon My mom comes first. I am just so grateful to be in a place right now where I could just go with her all the time. My older sister had just begun a new full time job, and my younger sister has a part time job and two young kids! So I was able to take her to nearly every appointment. Honestly less stressful to me, to take her myself, than to find friends to cover all those dates! Plus I got lots of extra time with Mom and I love that... emoticon

Once this is done I can and will concentrate on my business again. And my fitness. emoticon I've been trying to do a little bit every day, or most days. But I don't have a real "program" or "plan" and that needs to begin.

What I HAVE done is start working on my yard and flowers again! emoticon That is HARD work, and some days I do way too much and then can't do anything for several days. emoticon But it's nice to feel that determination back in my spirit!! emoticon That was missing for far too long.

Thanks, spark friends, for always being here for me no matter what!! emoticon emoticon

In closing, Here is a picture of my just done nails, in honor of my Mom:

    Great blog Kathie! God had plans for you all this month with your Mom. Special extra time with her is precious. I will be so glad when my mom moves up to Wyoming and I'm so much closer to her physically.

    I say bring on August too! Love your nails!!!! Glad you are getting time to enjoy your gardening as well. I'm missing that but it was one of the ways I choose to mourn this spring when I lost my brother. Nothing got planted at all.
