One Step Back - Two Steps Forward
I heard once that life is like a spinning plate act. Our goal is to keep all of the plates spinning at the same time. When one starts to slow you rush to it and give it the attention it needs.
Some plates spin easier than others - some are larger and some smaller. At different times in my life I have to spend more time on some and less on another - Just when I get some plates nicely spinning I have to dash off and give a different plate attention. Some women can spin so many more plates than I can - I watch them every Sunday with envy, but when I am watching their act my plates drop.
I have to stop spinning some plates because other plates are requiring more attention right now. This blog is one of the plates that I have to drop.
I have loved doing this. Thanks everyone for your love and support. I have been lifted by all of your comments - I have been edified by your examples. I have been amazed that you all have continued to read my ramblings. It has been so fun to have this invisible family to muse to and to renew my commitment to healthy living.
I truly know that without Heavenly Fathers help I could never have accomplished my goal to get healthy. I am constantly trying to keep my yoke on so that he will continually help me pull.
"Yea, and I also exhort you, my brethren, that ye be watchful unto prayer continually, that ye may not be led away by the temptations of the devil, that he may not overpower you..." Alma 34:39
