You know what is strange

With everything going on in my life(my son is finally starting to recover, thank you all) but with my brother and work and other issues. The only thing I have utter control of is my diet. Isnt that strange, it seems that way to me. It is like the least important issue overall in my life yet I have full control over it. It is almost like everything is failing around me and I sure the hell am not gonna fail on this diet.

 The rest of my concerns and issues are in Gods hands but this diet is in mine. I dont know, I just found that interesting.

Yesterday, I had to work at the other hospital since a staff member called out sick (it was a Monday). Each hospital has their own "wellness walk". So I printed the map and followed it, it was a mile. So I had to do it twice. It was very doable but I like my base hospitals walk better. It is out in the open, with almost no traffic and I usually dont see anyone walking it. So I can mentally relax and think as I walk. So today, I am back at my base hospital and am looking forward to my walk and the solitude.

I think we have to have some sort of control. Thankfully you being on this journey has given you that and may help you along the way. Glad your coping okay and I'm still praying for you.

It's amazing when you let go of the illusion of control where you never had it, it's sort of freeing and peaceful isn't it?

I'm so glad that you do have control of something important. Solitude? What's that! :-)

I know what you mean. There seems to come a point when you no longer consider reverting to an unhealthy diet as an option. The healthy habits you've been working for are just that now...habits. Congrats on getting there. Don't ever look back.

I am so sorry for you bother. Please up date and tell us how he is both home and body. I am glad your son is feeling better and that you are walking so well. I am not sure but it seems this year is a struggle for so many and not the easy struggles either. I know it's hard here too but luck for us not health issue right now.
I will pray for you and your family Grace. The Lord listens, just lean on him.
Take care and God Bless!!
