I am sending love, warmth and prayers to so many people today who need them. And I am squeezing my kids tight today. You never know when it might be the last time. That is the beauty and the tragedy of life; it’s so delicate and so beautiful, but it can be gone in an instant.
If you have lost someone dear, I am sending you warm thoughts, too. Loss and grief doesn’t know circumstances; it affects all loved ones the same.
Now on to how I’ve been doing with our Mid-Year Challenge… Be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled share my progress and thoughts, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). Be sure to subscribe for updates by adding your email right (in the sidebar) or through Feedburner in the title bar up top. You can also click the tab up top that says Mid-Year Resolution for regular updates.
I ate this:
Breakfast: Breakfast casserole (recipe)
Lunch: Recipes I’m sharing next week
Snack: Sugar-Free Hot Cocoa recipe I’m sharing next week
Dinner: More from the recipes I’m sharing next week
Exercise: Just hugging my kids. A lot. Big smooshy hugs.
Notes: I am so not hungry today. I’m foregoing Taco Star.
What I learned:
It’s hard to have much of an appetite when you see so many people aching today. So many parents will never hug their small children again because of crazed murderers. It makes me so sad.
Still, I guess that makes it all the more important for us to do what we can where we can to make a difference, no matter how small that difference might be. If we all took action by doing one good thing every day for someone else, think about how much brighter our tiny corners of the world might be!
