truth (scales)

"The most powerful agent of growth and transformation is something much more basic than any technique:  a change of heart."  ~~ John Welwood

This morning I have a complaint in my mind ... petty ... so I choose to lay it aside, I choose to be thankful!  Thank you, Lord.

I stepped on the scales this morning ... ouch!  The holidays are sitting well around my middle ... and they are weighty!  I'm grateful today for those holidays, for the delicious food I enjoyed, and for the scales that remind me that I have to have balance in what I eat.

I had 2 weeks off .... spent the majority of that time with family ... and loved every minute of it!  I am blessed and grateful for my husband, my sons, their wives, and for our grandson.  We spent time together in Austin - experienced a mild weather, played outside, went to the zoo.  One couldn't ask for sweeter, more relaxation than we experienced.  I'm grateful for a family that loves one another.

Christmas morning breakfast quiche
Our children cooked for us ... blessing us with their favorite recipes, their talents, their time, energy.  I have pictures ... the food was so good.  I am thankful for the joy that went into the process of family dinners!

Last, today I'm grateful for the scales.  I really mean it ... I need those scales to speak truth, to remind me that balance in eating is essential.

I am rich with blessings in holidays, time spent with family, rich foods, and truth (scales).  Thank you.
