First, an update on my weight loss. I confess I skipped my WW meeting last week, but I had a good reason. Our High School football team made the playoffs and they got to play in the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium! Knowing it would probably be the only time I could ever afford to go, (tickets are $100’s of dollars!) I skipped the meeting and went to the game! AWESOME FUN, even though we lost. 🙂
So this week I went to my meeting, knowing I had failed in my eating plan, and was pleasantly surprised to only have gained 1.4 pounds! AAAAaannnndddd, I was wearing jeans! So, here’s to a new week.
And Thanksgiving! Oh Lord, give me strength!
Now to the blessing of the day! My mom found out this past weekend that she had a blocked artery and needed a stint put in the back valve of her heart. So I traveled the hour drive early yesterday morning to be with her. She was wheeled back into surgery and in no time, the doctor came out and said when they went in, the heart looked great!
The doctor said that the nuclear stress test they do has a 15% false positive result and my mom was just part of that statistic. I, on the other hand, choose to believe that God had his hand upon my Mom. Isn’t that wonderful? I think so!
So here’s an update on my writing….or lack of. I had set aside my first finished MS and began fleshing out a new project, but God has been speaking loud and clear this week, with several confirmations on what I am to do. I am to take up my MS and edit it into the ground. My editor dad has been swamped with work of his own (and helping take care of Mom), so I am going to take what he has done so far and try to incorporate what he has found into the rest of the manuscript. Hopefully, when he does get back to it, he will have less to correct! lol (wishful thinking!)
So here’s to editing. And deleting. And adding. And murdering my adverbs, though I truly think some are beautiful.
Have a great weekend!
