Feel the love

I am sitting here watching the football highlights from the Cardinals and Packers game. HOLY CRAP!! It was an exciting game. I went out to my daughter's house to fix dinner and watched the game. My daughter has become interested in football this year. I love that kid. When she "gets interested" in something she REALLY gets interested. She was hilarious! Yelling and jumping. She had the little girls screaming "GO CARDINALS".

I am feeling very emotional this morning. Crying at my every thought. It's a good cry. A grateful cry. Not sure what's going on, but I am sure it has something to do with my hormones. I am waiting to walk out the door to walk this morning. Going to start a few minutes earlier. A new woman asked to join my buddy and myself. She wanted to start early, I said why not. I went for a long bike ride yesterday after church. It really has been glorious weather lately. I rode and listened to Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me. FUNNY this week. I also thought about why I am having such a hard time this week. What am I going to do to make things better. I just need to get back to good for me food. Back to a least half gallon a day. I am going to walk in the morning, then do something physical in the afternoon. No coming home to watch Oprah this week. Waste of time! Time to turn the TV off and get moving after work. Today I plan on listening to "Two Chicks and A Microphone" podcast. Check out Miz or DietGirl's website. See my blog list.

Back from my walk. My knee is really feeling that bike ride from yesterday. I went about 2.5 miles so I did ok. I could tell it was going to be ouchey when I woke up.

At church yesterday they speakers were talking about how to be happier. Boy, was I in the right place at the right time. They were saying that the key is to know that there is a God ( which I do ) and that He loves you. So in an effort to see the Lord's love in my life I am going to start listing His "tender mercies" in my life. Those things that touch my heart and reaffirm to me that I am loved.

Yesterday's tender mercy was the phone call I got from a blogger friend. We had never talked before and we had a great conversation. Another tender mercy was the afternoon with my Gkids. We made cupcakes and just had a great time. I am grateful for Gkids. I get to make up for the mistakes I made as a mom.

That's it for today. I am going to have a great today. I will make choices that are good for me. Keep the mood and the food real............feel the love!


  1. Us women with our crying. I think I am on the same crying kick as you...not sure why. I keep downloading the podcasts and never listen! You reminded me to start! :) Have a good day!!! :)

  2. I've been crying a lot today too, but I think mine might have something to do with me slamming the car door on my thumb...

  3. I really need to get back into some podcasts. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. I always feel the love when I read your blog. Your caring ways just come through the 'net.

    Have a wonderful day!

  5. It's wonderful to be in a place of gratitude. Enjoy it!

  6. Sorry you're feeling so emotional today but I do think we have to be grateful and think of the tender mercies in our life. I'm thankful for your friendship too *big big hugs*. Hope you feel happier after your walk with friends.

  7. Sounds like you had a great day with your Gkids. I'm glad you found inspiration at your church, just when you needed it. It happens that way sometimes.

    Thank you for your kind comment on my last blog post. Sometimes I get self-conscious that people are going to think I'm crazy, rather than honest. (I guess I could be

    Anyway, I do appreciate it, those kinds of comments help me so much.

  8. You are very tenderhearted, Dana. I'm so glad I've gotten to know you...your honesty is so refreshing.


Tell me what you think!
