It's so true that when we declare an intention, a true, deep desire to do anything, the universe opens up the flood gates and sends us the resources with which to accomplish them.
The moment I made a commitment to change my lifestyle into one that focuses on health, I have been the recipient of tremendous love and support. My family has astounded me the most! They have been there for me every step of the way. They have changed their eating habits, embraced exercise, learned about diabetes and educated themselves on what makes my glucose spike and how I can avoid it. Gone are the cookies, and the candy, and the bad carbs. Everyone has lost weight . . .
At work, suddenly, I find myself surrounded by co-workers who are committed to health! They have shared their enthusiasm, tips on eating and exercising, and given me their understanding and encouragement.
And that is how I found myself in this photo surrounded by friends, co-workers and family: My wonderful husband, Leo, and son, David; my friend and boss, Leo and his wife, Angela, and the guy who challenged me to try this, my friend and co-worker, Justin. This entire group joined me on my biggest challenge to date - a 5K walk. As a bonus, we also helped raise a little money to help find a cure for Lupus.
When the walk ended and I walked into the finish line, I stopped for a moment and thanked God: “Thank you for sticking with me. Thank you for sending me angels to help keep me on the right path. Thank you for all the grace and love that you have bestowed on me.” I'm glad I remembered to do that.
