As we’ve done for the past 8 years, we’ve celebrated Fathers Day with Mommy and I’ve remembered to say a special prayer to all the deceased fathers in my family that are now (hopefully) in heaven and watching me from above.
I tried my best to make the day a good one, but when you can’t eat half the food you used to enjoy, it’s kind of hard. Also doesn’t help that you don’t know how to celebrate a day dedicated to dads when all you have is a mom. I’m still learning how to do just that.
The day mostly was like any other Sunday. Mom and I went to fill my car with gas, do some minor shopping to get me through the first part of the workweek, and went for a couple walks throughout the day. The day ended with snacks as always (and I overdid again!) and watching a few YouTube videos.
I completely forgot about writing a blog entry AND giving Mom my Fathers Day card. 😦 It wasn’t until about 10:30 yesterday evening that I crept back to my bedroom (decided to stay with Mom last night) and reached into my printer and pulled out an envelope addressed to her. I placed the envelope on her pillow and waited for her to come back in the room. She asked what it was and I just said, “I forgot to give this to you earlier.” It was Fathers Day card just for her.
I may not be the best at celebrating days like today or enjoying food without raising my blood sugar too much, but I do my best and sometimes things pay off. I’m still praying my blood sugar will be happier again soon. My weight is steady (I could stand to lose some more weight), but my blood sugar has jumped again. More stress (mostly from Plaster Designs), but I have to learn to manage this stress some how and the more I think I have it in control the less I do. 😕 So I’ll say a prayer that things start improving for me; I’ll report back tomorrow night.
Love and prayers!
