New Begining Old Tomorrows.....

So remember last post when I talked about changes and how it was time? Well I did it I cropped all my hair off lol! Ok maybe not all my hair but as my grandma says "Good you got rid of that stingy hair." I am now noticing a difference in the way I walk. I am not getting as tried as I used too. So I do have a funny story to tell you all. I do not know if any of you remember or not but I only live maybe five or six blocks always from my mom and dad. Well my mom and sister run a preschool/daycare from my moms home. Logan goes there 3 days a week when my dad is home and comes and picks him up. Well Thursday was such a nice day nice day that I thought you know what I am so taking Logan to Nannys house. Well I got him and I ready told him where we were going and looked for the stoller..... Guess what no stoller.... Its at nannys and poppys house me being me lefted it there the last time I walked there so instead of my normal thought of just giving up I let that thought leave my mind, and I picked up Logan and off we went. I carried him on my hip the whole way to my moms house. You know something I thought that I would be tried halfway there like I was used to, but nope I made it there and enjoyed my walk! After I got there and put Logan down and he went and played, I thought in my head there is no way I would of been able to do that five weeks ago! Its funny to me to think that a little change in the way you feel about yourself make all the change in the world.
Stephen, Logan, my mom , and I got to go to the Oklahoma Aquarium yesterday It was so much fun! The thing was there was TONS of WALKING! But guess what I was prepared this time I was so ready! I had too much fun running after Logan watching him say fish and more then anything not get tried the whole time!

So you know what this new beginings are great! I am loving it. The best part is that everytime there is something new that happeneds in your life it is a new beginging! So this is to you my Sisters my friends I ask you what new beginings have you had lately? Maybe you are drnking more water. or loseing more weight, maybe you cut your hair, or are moving into a new house. Whatever it is however big or small it is a new time in your life a new begining for you to celabrate! Remeber to embrass the change because no matter how big or how small it may seem to you do it. You completed a change, you are making your life better for you family, your friends, your spouse, and most importanly YOU!

Another thing you might not have thought of is how much more you will be able to do if there was a natural disaster. Now that you are in better shape, God forbid something happens to your area, (for me I have to worry about earthquakes) you will have the strength to do more for your family and protect them. That is HUGE!

You keep going girl! Pretty soon you will be running circles around me. lol XXOO
