On my own

I am on my own this weekend.  My husband is out of town for a few days.  I had a good week despite the nutty hot temps.  Monday it was 113 in down town L.A.!  I work about 10 miles from downtown.  And on the blacktop (believe it or not I teach P.E.) it was probably way hotter.  We stayed in Monday.  But the rest of the week we were outside.  Thursday and Fridays are the really long afternoons.  And it worked out.   I was hot and slow, but I survived.  And I have to say that I am enjoying a weekend on my own.  Dinner with a girlfriend last night, baby shower today, maybe church tonight, and breakfast with a friend tomorrow.  Hopefully I won't over do it.  I think it should be o.k..  
I am still trying to be mindful to walk in faith.  It is hard on the days when you struggle, but it is a mindset that does diminish the stress.  And that helps.  My life, although different is good.  I am learning to not define myself by what I can or can't do.  I am more than those things.
