It probably sounds silly, but that was supper tonight – peanut butter and jelly. I love peanut butter, but because of my diet, the only peanut butter I have had has been in diet bars. Good stuff, but I really have been missing the rich, gooey sweetness of my favorite – JIF! So tonight, the diet was on hold, and I had a PBJ sandwich!
I know what your are thinking – why blow your diet with PEANUT BUTTER????? Well, mostly because I don’t really want to blow my diet, and I can excuse the peanut butter somewhat because it has good protein, I ate sugar free apricot preserves, all on diet bread. If I really blow things too much it is so difficult to get back on track. I have lost right at 45 pounds and I don’t want to start down that slippery slope!! I have about 20 more to go, so tonight, PBJ; tomorrow, back to veggies, protein, and VERY LITTLE CARBS! (I might need your prayers!)
Tomorrow is Morgan’s funeral. Morgan is my niece (in-law). She had been ill for quite some time, but there hadn’t been a true diagnosis for her condition. She had actually gotten some better in the last couple of months, but became very ill last weekend. By Tuesday she had passed away. It was so very sudden, and we are pretty much still in shock. Morgan is my nephew Mike’s wife and they have a precious 12 year old daughter, Haleigh. It’s just so sad. We are truly thankful, though, that Morgan professed to know Jesus and we are comforted to know she is with Him and is truly healed now!
The funeral is in Palestine, Texas. Bill, Daddy and I will leave around 9 in the morning. Jeanne will need to stay home with Mama – the trip would be too difficult for her, and the change of scenery might potentially confuse her.
It’s been many years since I was in Palestine. It’s such a beautiful town. At least my memories of it are! If it were for any other reason, I would so look forward to going. Daddy will appreciate doing something different, and much of our family will be there. Daddy will love seeing them again.
This weekend is my sweet Emily’s birthday. I had to ship her package so it would be there in time, and while I was at it I also mailed a package to Arulai and Titus. Well, today Arulai called me and said, “Nonnie, thank you for my PRESENT!!!” We talked about the different things in the package for a minute, and she suddenly said, “Well, I’m through talking to you now, Nonnie!” I just began laughing, and when Emily got on the phone she could hardly speak for laughing so hard!! A.J. is such a funny little girl!!
God bless your day!
