We think about where we've been and where we want to be. And then figure out what steps if any, are necessary to get there. What do you want in your life that isn't already there? Or what do you want or need to get rid of to be healthier and stronger as a person? One thing I don't want to change is the closeness I feel with each one of you and your loved ones. Another is my love and genuine desire to reach out to others no matter where they are, or what their need. But, I have been doing that to the exclusion of all other things, and am feeling out of balance. For instance, I don't spend the time I should with God just remembering each one of you and your families, and asking Him to help you. And if I want to give others good sound helpful advice, that can only happen if I read God's Word which has the answer to every problem. I haven't been excising which is a key for me in seeing the bright side of life even on cloudy days. I had an awful time over the holidays which would have been helped with daily exercise. So I started walking today at the local community center, and am starting to read through the New Testament with one of my adopted sons in Ghana, Africa. I had my sister color my hair yesterday, and am going to get it cut on Friday because it's halfway down my back and shoulder length is prettier for my facial features, and more easy to manage. I'm going to try and spend some time with my sisters and Mom and Grandmother. I called around and got everyone committed to a day of fun together January 26th. I'm still thinking about and examining how I'm going to fit it all together, and what still needs to go, as well as how I can hold on to the things which are good and make me very happy. But, listen we each have a 24 hour block of time to fill everyday. Some things are mandatory like working to pay your bills, and resting so you don't get overtired, and eating so you'll have energy for your tasks. But, the rest of the hours are yours to spend as you will. All I ask is don't waste them. Do things which will help to make you and others healthy and happy.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
