OK, I am not sure what in the great cosmic grouping of circumstances out there decided to side track my walking efforts, but I am SO far behind. I have been taking care of my mother after she had her knee replaced. The weather has been horrific – cold, rainy, blowing. Our October weather has been more like November! The cubs have been challenging, I am sure because their routine has been screwed up from having GrammaBear here. Whatever it is, I have been frustrated and mad at myself.
Part of this journey is learning how to pull myself up not only physically, but emotionally as well. I am going to continue to get back on track with my exercise program. In the meantime I am going to work on my emotional well-being and join the “Thankful” train. You know, where you list something every day that you are thankful for since it is the month of thankfulness.
Here we go –
I have spent the day baking my family fresh bread. Baking is an outlet for me and a way to show my family how much I love them. Bread, in all its forms from the most humble unleavened loaf to the most lavish buttery yeasty roll, has nourished families throughout time. People have always gathered around food to celebrate, to mourn, to just be together. So today I am thankful for the ability to create food that my family enjoys and draws us closer together.
