Now just look at that picture. I look awesome don't I? Ok so my husband will tell yo that I look awesome now, but he is my husband and he loves me no matter what. I, on the other hand, need to love myself again. No I am not wanting to be the skinniest thing on earth. But I do want to have the shape of something other than an apple again. I am not sure an apple is the right description, an apple doesn't have skinny arms and legs.... so what would that be?
Tuesday is weigh in, and yes I am looking forward to it. I want to know if what I have been doing is right or wrong.
This weekend has been good so far. I did the "bucket drive" today. Something really sad happended to me today when I was doing the bucket drive..... when you are doing the bucket drive you learn to ask EVERYONE who walks by if they would like to make a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. And I do that NO MATTER WHAT. Today a lady was walking into the storee, she was dressed, very nicely, skirt, nice shirt , heels.
I asked her if she would like to make a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She stopped and looked at me. I guess if you have never done a bucket drive you would not understand how odd that was. Sometimes people stop and take out their wallets and donate, sometimes they say sorry I can't right now and sometimes they just ignore you. They don't ususally stop and just look at you. But she did. She said " I am very sorry, I have no cash on me, I forgot to go to the bank to get money for the minister." I said "it's ok, have a nice day" . She still stood there. She looked right at me and said " I am going to my son's funeral and I forgot to get money to pay the minister, so I have to stop at the ATM inside the store to get the money to pay him, I wish I had some cash to give you" .
HELLO! What do I say to that?? It was so obvious by this womans demeanor and her words and her dress and everything about her that she was not lying to me................................
I hugged her. Maybe she could of hit me. Who knows what I would of done if a complete stranger hadhugged me the day of my son's funeral. She didn't, she hugged me back.
All is right with my world right now.
