For years I have held to a conviction to allow the Lord plan my family. Currently, we have a one-year-old and by this time I historically would be expecting our next child.
I need, to be honest, I’m in a battle with the Lord right now. For many reasons, I believe that I want to be done with childbearing.
Life is chaotic.
I’m growing weary of having infants.
I’m ready to focus on having older children and doing fun things that sometimes you can’t do with littles.
I want to enjoy “retirement” someday.
I want to have time left with just hubby and me to enjoy “single” life.
There is an adage, “You never see a hearse pulling a U-Haul.” Recently my husband and I were in Los Angeles. He had work to do so I thought I would go and spend some much needed quiet time away from the din of the homestead.
In some of the down time, we had an opportunity to go exploring in the city. We walked around Hollywood enamored by some of the stars represented there on Hollywood Boulevard. We went down to the Venice canals and walked around looking at homes that seemed to come right out of the pages of a magazine.
I have a love-love relationship with food. I wouldn’t say I am gourmet or even adventurous with my food choices. But I do have comfort foods; lots of them! I eat when I’m happy, stressed, sad, and bored. I derive much happiness from food. Is this you? Read on my friend.
The last several months, I’ve been on a weight loss journey. My health odyssey of sorts. Coming up against my food problem has been difficult. No, downright hard. A few weeks into my journey life happened and stressful days ensued I wanted nothing more than to get myself a Mocha Moolatte plop down on the couch and watch some Biggest Loser. It’s true.
I have a confession to make. I am a Rocky fan. Fan being short for fanatic of course. I love the story, the fights, the music. When I hear that Bump, Bump, Ba…my heart flutters. I love it all! The final installment came out in December 2015 and it was great, so great that Sly got nominated for an Oscar BTW. Anyway, in the movie, Rocky is training Apollo Creed’s son, Adonis Johnson, to be a great fighter. He repeats the line as they are training – “One step at a time. One punch at a time. One round at a time.”
