Hello! How are you?
Not quoting Adele– how are you for real? I hope you’re doing well.
Today I let the food talk. And Gods been doing some really cool things in my recovery.
Breakfast. So breakfast before work this morning accompanied by an episode of Glee and some journaling was a Quest bar, cherries drizzled with sunflower seed power and cacao, and an almond milk cappuccino.
Lunch. I worked from 9-2:30, and it was a really slow day! I ate some oatmeal and a piece of gluten-free with a few strawberries to end my shift, and drank a ton of coffee and chamomile tea.
Dinner. I walked over to my hair dresser’s, Pam’s, and she layered and thinned out my hair and I love it! She is one of the most wonderful, convicted, strong women I’ve ever known, and I’ve only met her twice. She embodies the truth that is our duty and ability to have faith as the umbrella of each and every thing that we do. We had an amazing conversation!
I left Pam’s at five o clock and didn’t have to catch the bus to the House of Friendship until 6:20. I knew I needed some food and was going to get dinner on my own, but thought I’d use the unexpected pocket of time and called my sister who drove out and met me at Montana’s. Catch up time is certainly rare for us, and we both really needed it, I think. I got a pulled pork salad with balsamic dressing and without the cheese.
Snack. I bussed down to the House of Friendship and when I transferred, was grateful to see that Maddie, Bethany, and some other people in my class were on the bus from the university. We found our way together and had a blast talking. At the House, which is a wonderful organization that AIDS the homeless and less fortunate in our community, we packaged oatmeal for Christmas hampers. It was awesome bonding time, and more importantly extremely eye-opening and proactive. So often we tend to focus on the immediate in our lives. We are so, SO spoiled. We have no clue how lucky we are to live where we do. We just have no clue.
My friend Sarah kindly drove me home, where I had a bit of a chance to sit down with my whole family and talk a bit, which is so rare lately! I ate some deli roast beef, and carrots with sunflower seed butter.
I am grateful for the beautiful day that I had and the amazing people in my life! Also for the little Ed-wins. I am growing.
