a win-win situation

2013 has been very memorable with its crazy weather patterns...or lack thereof.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason for what the weather may or may not do.  I usually am able to shed the jeans and hoodies by May.  Not this year...and definitely not today.
There is a high point to the windy, drizzly, and chilly day, however.
Being in the final weeks of building our house, it is not feasible to make travel plans.  Too much going on to get away, so we enjoy a staycation at our farm when we can.
Today's gift was having the rain hold off so that we could go fishing in our farm pond.
It is quite evident we are having crazy weather and an upcoming storm headed our way because the fish were acting funny.  Mainly we dealt with hard to catch, little dudes that enjoyed stealing the bait in a flash.
It was relaxing.
It was fun.
It was a win-win situation for us and the fish.
We came.  We caught.  We released.
A good day.

    I am glad that God knows everything, and that we are in His care! We can always rest in matter what.

    Enjoy the building process and one day soon you will be in your new place! God is good! :)

    Happy Saturday!

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
