Good Things Are Com'n Your Way

I'm sad to say that my job has consumed me, Christmas has been put on hold and even my health. I've allowed stress to take over my life once again due to my new job and basically have lost myself. However, this past weekend, I was able to take my work on the road and see my family -- accomplishing 2 very important factors in my life without letting anything else invaluable get in my way.

This picture is of my twin Robin, who has struggled with Fibromyalgia, Thyroid, Neuropathy, possible Cancer...among other things, but she has conquered each and every battle that has attempted to knock her down. Again, she has proven to be my hero. Each day some stronger power takes her to a new level in which she has learned about something new and subsequently has survived.

Here, she's proven that one can gain weight (she reached up to 250 lbs -- and is 5'6 1/2" tall) but accordingly, has proven it possible to lose it just the same -- as it was bringing her health problems. This foto demonstrates once again her ability to fight whatever attempts to get in her way and bring her down. Look at the reality of this...know that if you too struggle, there are answers. You just need to look, have faith and know it will happen if you have confidence. Look up, never look down and know that there are always answers if you just take the time to seek.

Bless you my dear twin and may you find everything in life you've been looking for...including your special, Dennis. It's time for you to gain all the things that our upper superior being wishes you to obtain.

Merry Christmas to you all.

I'm delighted to find your newsy post today and to know what's happening in your life. I'm with Sandee ... please take time to savor the moments along the way and don't let stress wreak havoc in your life or relationships.

Give your twin a hug from me and let her. I know how challenging such weight loss can be and I hope she feels proud of herself.

How lovely that your company has a branch in Singapore! Any plans to come over? It would be great to meet you in person.

Wonderful, inspiring and uplifting! Mom has a photo similar to that one of your twin and her old jeans. Mom says she wants to find it and pin it up to inspire her to lose the weight that snuck back on!
