This has been one of the longest weekends of my life. Actually, it’s been one of the longest weeks. Since Uncle W passed away Wednesday, my life has been thrown into a tumultuous array of emotions. I have cried (so much) and eaten complete crap (and too much of it) and have felt miserable and wonderful at various moments. I’m still emotionally drained, but I’m looking forward to sharing some guest posts this week while I recover and get back into a healthy routine.
The memorial was standing room only, and I saw many people that I hadn’t seen since I was a kid – family members, my kindergarten teacher and other folks who were impacted by my uncle. I sang “It Is Well With My Soul” and choked up so much during the second verse that I had to stop for a moment before finishing, but I made it through.
Cal was here all weekend. He met my family, and he didn’t leave my side at all. He hugged me, held my hand, let me cry and wiped my tears. He told me I was pretty and answered all of the questions my family asked like “what are your intentions with my niece” and more…He carried heavy things, grabbed things on the top shelf and encouraged me to eat more vegetables by wanting to eat more vegetables himself. I could say so much about him, but I’ll do that later. For now, I’ll just sum it up by saying that he provided exactly what I didn’t know I needed this weekend.
I need to change a lot of things this week – starting with food and workouts. I need to eat healthy foods and workout. I need to jump back into the good groove that I found in September because that feels like a lifetime ago. I’m tired, and I’m going to work on getting through Monday by making good choices which leads me to this week’s topic…
