This weekend the priest challenged the congregation to each reflect on something that happened this past year that we were not at all thankful for. He asked us to go home and silently reflect on how we might, instead, become thankful for God's grace in handing us something that might have otherwise seemed terrible. I, immediately, knew what this meant to me. I sat in the pew, looked up and smiled. There is NO DOUBT that my challenges this year have led me to a far, far, far greater place than I could have EVER imagined and saved me (and others) ultimate heartache in the future. In that sense....the purpose of this blog has been fulfilled. I have come full circle....and I am ever so grateful and thankful.
Today was my November weigh in! I have been struggling with these three to four pounds that are (relatively) new. I was CERTAIN I was going to owe Weight Watchers 13 dollars for the month of November. Nevertheless, I faced my fears, walked in, shed my boots and jumped on the scale. As I anticipated...I was over. I was over by .6! .6! Seriously? 13 dollars for 6 ounces? The receptionist suggested I run to the restroom and "relieve my bladder." I took her advice...and ultimately saved 13 dollars! My advice for today....eliminate before your weigh in! You never know how much it will make a difference. On the flip-side...I've got some work to do....at the WORST time possible!

I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
