Often we forget that there are things out there that surpass the superficial. Superficial is in your face all the time. Well, Superficial, meet Perspective.
I've been following a blog called "Prior Fat Girl". It's very insperational and motivational. It's a story of one woman's two year journey to lose 100 lbs. She had a goal of August 1, 2009. She had 1.6 lbs left. We were all cheering for her and wanted to celebrate her victory.
I logged on today to find something that was so far from celebration. A tragic accident that reached right out from the words I read and slapped me in the face. Just 12 hours before her goal day arrived, she lost her mother in a car accident.
I'm not posting my weight today, there are more important things to think about. Remember to love those around you. Take time to smile more, take time to engage more; interact more. Remember that, in a blink of an eye, everything can change.
Jen, my heart is saddened for you and your family. I can't imagine what you feel and am so thankful I don't know it first-hand.
Mom-I love you more than words can say!
