August Happiness Challenge -- Day 30

The right words at the right time. I received this email today from my aunt/Godmother. I'm going to print it out and take it to the hospital with me:

Well, let's try to think of some positives in this whole experience you have coming up---

1. You will, indeed, lose weight, and I know you've been wanting to.

2. You will have some quality time with your Mom.

3.Your cats will love having you home. (Hey, what's that scamp Reynaldo been up to?)

4. It may take a bit of time, but you are going to get some things resolved and actually feel better.

5. You'll be able to read a book all the way through without stopping if you want to.

6. You can eat anything you feel like for a while.

7. You can watch some silly movies like "Hot Tub Time Machine" and and not feel guilty.

I know you are scared, and I do not blame you. you can obsess all you want. If good wishes and prayers can make it all better, you are home free- 'cause you've got them, Sweetie.

  2. What a great pep talk! And she's right--you've got more good wishes and prayers coming your way from Northern Maine.

  3. Godmothers are amazing - my own is like my second mom and is my favorite relative. I learned how to be a good (and loving, encouraging) godmom from her.

    This was a beautiful letter from yours - save that one forever. It's filled to the very brim (and a bit over) with *LOVE*.
