2013 = Lamb:

Psalm 23 was one of Shawn's favorite scriptures. Before the fire Dec. of 2012, I had told him my ornament idea for 2013. He had commented that this would have been his favorite ornament.

Psalm 23 was one of Shawn’s favorite scriptures. Before the fire Dec. of 2012, I had told him my ornament idea for 2013. He had commented that this would have been his favorite ornament. He never saw it.   The design may seem silly, but I cherish it as my memorial ornament for Shawn.

Here is the list:       

’03 = Wire / Copper Star

’05 = King Of Kings                                                                                                                                     

’06 = Heart

’12 = Trinity / 3 Horns

I hope this is helpful for all my ornament receivers.

2014 / Hint   Just a hint for 2014.

 

*** Regarding organizing:          I was so thrilled to receive a text from my friend, regarding our organizing project.  She shared with me some of the things she had accomplished.  She has been, joyfully, taking garbage out, daily. She VACUUMED !!!   The dishwasher-inside and out, looks great !!! The stove and dishwasher look brand new.   The hours, at her job, have increased-so I will rework our game plan.                                                                         I went over Friday, after work. I wanted to reshuffle and figure out some future goals.    When my friend arrived home, she asked if I looked around to see what she had done.  I had not, I wanted her to give me a tour and tell me.  It was my hope she would realize her accomplishments, by verbalizing them to me.   The result- well, I will use her word from a text*** “YIPPEE !!!”               The both of us have busy schedules. Our organizing task may take some time. I must tell you, though, there is a reward in hearing the happiness, in my friend’s voice, as she shares & shows her accomplishments.

*** Regarding exercise:   Firm 30 is the name of the 2nd workout, on this DVD.                                                                                                          It is surprising for as simple as the exercises are, this workout makes me shaky.  I am finally able to get through the whole workout. My joints aren’t so creaky. The lunges are hard to do, but my knees feel so much better.  When doing crunches, I am having a hard time keeping my head up, the whole time.    It gets me how much I have been sweating, for several minutes afterward.   This is 7 of 33.   Forward On !!!                                                                                                                                     Oh wait !!!   One of my friends, at work, one morning, was talking about how she needed to start walking the track before work. Her doctor had told her that exercise at the beginning of the day was best.                 I  have been so tired, at the end of the day,  that I was afraid I would fall out of my exercise routine.  I asked her if we  could start walking, before we clocked in ?  We have been able to walk 4 laps, Monday – Friday.     For the both of us, that is a BIG deal.     What is more exciting—another co-worker joined us.    PLUS, I heard someone else is interested.   For now, we are enjoying  the dry warm mornings. I mentioned that it was going to be more challenging when the weather changed to rain.  I have decided that I am going to make every effort, then, to continue lapping.   BUT, if I am unable  to lap,  I will use Firm 30  for 33 times.     After that I will decide which workout I will start.   I must admit, the lapping has been enjoyable !!!

In closing, this week was very stressful with many challenges. The thing that gets me: Why do I catch myself having sad moments regarding Shawn’s goneness ?   Why do I, still, have so many regret filled times.   Why is there such a gaping hole ?                                                                          I am looking  for the light at the end of my tunnel. My apologies.                                                                                                                        Bye, K                                                  mygriefjourney
