The Mind

When God gave us a mind what an amazing gift!
I have to start this Blog with a short story.
A few years ago my Twin Sister died having Cancer. She stayed at home with services through hospice. While going through treatment, before hospice when it became too painful, and emotional stressful, she used what she called mind transport to a better place.
One afternoon she asked me to lay down beside her, and she started the trip, to her favorite of all time place to be Myrtle Beach. While listening to her transport us there, you could feel the damp sand on our feet as we walked the beach, and feel the ocean breeze and hear the waves. Oh and how relaxing feeling the sun on our faces. That is one of my fondest memories of life without food.
Since I am and emotional binge eater, while I took the summer off of Spark People,
I tried this tactic to get control of my binges, I a proud to say for me it has worked, It has been a few months since I went on an eating binge.
I also like reading, for this same reason when I read about places I haven't been or would like to see and things I'd like to do... the mind just transport me there.
What more can I say...

    Your story is beautiful. Your sister is and was a special lady to also transport you to her special place.
    God bless her.
