Who takes care of YOU?

This morning's breakfast : Coconut flour muffins, hormone free turkey sausage, fresh strawberries and green tea.
I don't know about you, but if I'm told that my hubby or children, or grandchildren have a specific need or want.......
that's all you had to say.

Consider it done.

 It makes me happy to find ways to serve them.
I have no problem baking g/f cupcakes for my little grandsons and daughter in law. But what I've come to realize through this whole process of healing my body through nutrition is that I really don't want to take the time to do these things for myself. Most of my meals when I'm alone are eaten in front of my computer screen or out of a zip lock baggie while I'm driving somewhere. I'm annoyed that I have to actually prepare foods that are only going to be consumed by me. Why is that? I feel that God is teaching me so much through all of this. Maybe by the time this is all over and I settle into my new lifestyle I will have come to a new appreciation of who I am and my own sense of worth.

"For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful; I know that full well. 
 Psalm 139:13-14

Amen Sister! As wives and mothers and grandmothers we tend to put others before us. It's nice to take a moment just for you. Enjoy yourself and your new adventure!

I hear ya! I'd just as soon get a pizza and munch on it for a few days as cook for just me. But sometimes I do go all out for myself.
