Bask in Life!

Good Friday morning! I have had a good week. I aced my Spanish sentences and my Sociology essay. In fact, after a heart to heart with the Spanish teacher she said that my sentences were better then the youngsters. Oh, how I needed to hear that. My daughter keeps telling me that I am just not confident enough. She stresses to me that I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me. :) I love that kid. She really does speak my truth. My fear rules, and I am very hard on myself. Gotta stop that. It's so self defeating, and just what the adversary wants. He laughs at me every time I indulge my fear. I keep that thought in my head, and pray every morning for courage! I know I can't change myself, I need His help.

I have a pretty low key weekend. Tonight I am sitting for a young mother in my church. Her husband left her with 4 little kids under the age of 5. Seriously! So I am getting ready for a interesting night. I really am not much of a kid person. I like my Gkids, but I really am not a child lover like some. I find the little people frustrate me. So this is going to be a challenge. I have decided to be up for it. She had no one else to help her out and she has to work.

My friend from Blanding called me last night and is in town. They treated me to dinner at Outback last night. UGH! I ate too much and was so miserable. You would like I'd learn. I woke up so "creaky." Eating poorly really effects all of me. So it's back to lots of H20 today and veggies and fruits. No beating myself up, just PRESS FORWARD.

I hope that everyone has a great weekend. I will probably ride out and see the kids on Saturday. I want to take a long walk tomorrow morning. Nothing stressful. Just listen to my podcasts and bask in the outdoors. The weather will be wonderful! I will work on my Spanish and my last essay. Life really is good!

Keep the mood and the food real....................


  1. WTG with the Spanish - and here you were so worried about it! Your daughter is right. You are all those things and nice to boot!

  2. I love hearing all your positives :) I knew you'd do just fine on your school stuff :) better yet you did terrific :) Listen to your daughter she definitely speaks the truth, people do like ya :) I know I sure do :) Well kid person or not I'm sure those kids will love having you hang out with them. *big hugs* Life is good!

  3. I;m really glad things are looking up my friend. The feeling is mutual when it comes to kids. I'am so not a kid person. My daughter isn't either and is seriously considering not having children. She says alot of people ask her why she doesn't have children already after all she is married and 25 and i'm like seriously they ask that? Press on!Keep putting one foot in front of the other and if nothing else fake it til you make it! Hugs! deb

  4. Great news on the school front! Your daughter is right (and I love Stuart Smalley!).

    Have a wonderful weekend, my happy friend! :)

  5. I'm so glad to hear school is going great!! I knew you'd kick butt :)
    Have fun looking after the children!

  6. How did the kid watching go? Seriously 4 kids 5 and under! YIKES! That is ahandful! And the fact that you did it....even not liking kids all that are amazing!
