I’ve Been Blessed With a Very Great Start for Summer
Happy 80th Birthday Mom! My wonderful Mom, Virginia Wolf celebrates her 80th birthday this summer! Most of the women in our family got together last weekend to celebrate by eating and shopping well, and staying overnight together at a downtown hotel (my Mom and most of my family live in Fort Wayne, IN).
We thank God for an awesome time together, and I cried at the end of the weekend – we will just have to do again soon! The top picture is a photoshop pic my daughter Christina made for the party including the immediate women in our family (daughters, granddaughters, and 2 great-granddaughters), and the bottom one is after dinner last Saturday night. (And I am so happy to report that I was able to take my thumb splint off last week!)
This week, I will share:
- Tips from my patients Shelly and Karen and my husband Bruce on how to switch to gluten-free and organic (Shelly switched 2 months ago; she feels so much better and finally can lose weight! She has lost 10 pounds with the same amount of exercise and no more irritable bowel/stomach/colon issues that she had for years; and Karen just switched a month ago and has lost 6 pounds and has less fibromyalgia/migraine pain)
- A video that Eric made of me doing the Maximum Effort workout. Please call him if you need an excellent personal trainer (he is also a Purdue grad like me). He has some openings now (email@example.com, 765-404-7343). He and my son Brendan are gone this coming week at Rainbow Christian Camp – their high school out of state trip – canoeing and caving and hiking (Eric as an adult chaperone!)
- And some incredible books I have been reading:
Remember to go to bed praising God for His goodness. This lays the groundwork for gratitude, thanksgiving, and praise in the morning. Recalling His goodness motivates you to trust Him for the future, to be honest and admit your need for Him, and gives you hope for the day to come, and helps you turn to Him quickly no matter what may arise.
With my hugs and prayers for all you so very special wonderful gifts from our Lord and for your families,
