100 calorie pack

OK, so it's no secret that after 35, weight control becomes a bit more of, shall I say a challenge. Those of you that know me well, know that passing up dessert is just not an option, especially if M&M's are involved. In fact, I will pass up every other meal and skip right to dessert whenever possible.

A day is not complete for me without snuggling on the couch with a cup of hot water (yeah, I know weird, anyway) and something sweet.

So you can imagine my sheer delight when, today at a local drug store, I discovered 100 calorie packs of my all time favorite-M&M's. Could life get any better? I doubt it.

Oh wait, maybe it can. After opening the box, I discovered...Fun Size packs? What? How much did I pay for this?

Walking in the Light

Wow! This year year has been a whirlwind to say the least. I am shocked we are near the half way point in February. Part of me wants to dance. If the start of the year is any indication of how it is going to go, I am happy it's flying by. I will usher in 2009 with bells and whistles.

Yet, I am humbly reminded that every day is a gift, and I need to walk in the Light. I need to let Him guide me through each day. I need to listen to His still, quiet voice...Yeah I know for me that's a stretch. I'm never still long enough to catch my breath.

As I write this, our dear neighbor of ten years is fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I am awed by the faith she has in God. I am humbled by the fight she has within her to beat the demon we know as cancer. Hunter, in his six year old wisdom said to me, "Mommy, why are you sad? We are just going to pray and Jesus is going to make her better." The faith of a child and the living testimony of one who is dwelling in God's amazing grace reminds me to walk daily in the His unfailing light.
