A Love Letter To Me

Sunday, February 16, 2014



Dear Self,

This letter is to let you know that you are loved. Many times you are all too willing to look at the things that you feel are bad. Not this time.

We are going to celebrate your good things!! You give of yourself to many people beginning with your wonderful husband. You have raised two wonderful, well educated children who have gone on to become productive citizens. Both have great lives and they can thank you for that.

You volunteer with St. Vincent de Paul and the local Historical Society. You work at your church by doing laundry and cooking meals for families who have lost loved ones.

You are always willing to do what needs to be done for your children and grandchildren. Many times this isn't easy.

You exercise religiously every day. Many times this isn't easy either!! But you do it. No you aren't the strongest person but you are OK. You may not be the fastest walker and you aren't a runner but you are OK.

You are a good friend to many. So be a good friend to yourself and give yourself a big hug!! emoticon

    Pat, emoticon and am so happy to see you give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back. Look around your church, your community ... and you are (for sure!) in the 10% giving back of your time and your effort to your church and community.

And look at how many people were crowding the gym in January. And now count how many are there with you now as we slide into March.

And the best products of your life ... your kids and their family - your legacy. I know how much you sacrifice (cold, hard bleacher seats; driving through snow banks; tournament-length basketball games with double-digit score spreads!) What can I say, other than that's a mom and a grandmom for you !! emoticon

You are doing some amazing things!! emoticon

    Looks like a great plan! Good luck in achieving those goals! I like that you have more than diet/fitness goals to work for! A clean sewing room will really make you smile, along with all the other goals!
