Polite Comments...

Yesterday, I didn't get to finish telling you about my week. 

Friday, I was unsure if I was going to attend my friend D's Epicure party.  Actually, it was her son T's gathering, for he had booked time with my friend M, when he and his Mom attended my Epicure party!  Even if I hadn't attended, I would have ordered product, in order to help both T and M..

After giving it much thought, I decided to go, after all.  When I arrived, I thought D's home must have been filled with people, for the street parking was at a premium.  I had to walk from several homes down the street, to D's home.

Upon entering D's home, I quickly realized that many of her neighbours must have been having guests on this same Friday evening, for there was only a couple of people in attendance, other than my friend M, who was doing the presentation.

Within a short time, more people arrived.  Phew!  After all was said and done, I was glad to have decided to attend, for we had an absolute riot!  A lot of laughs were had by all!  The evening truly lifted my spirits.

Spending most of my life alone, isn't what I had dreamed of, but it is what my life has become.  Except for work and friends and the occasional time with family, there really isn't much to put a smile on my face.  Except for Jesus, of course!

Saturday morning, I had to work.  After showing property and arriving home, I thought about taking a nap, for I was exhausted.  After all, I haven't been sleeping well.  But, the thought of having a quick 40 winks, or even 20 winks at the expense of putting off sleep at bedtime, kept me from doing this.

In the afternoon, I did something I don't normally do on a Saturday; I went and worked out at M's.  She normally isn't open for business, but she had let me know that some newer people were going to be working out.  I was grateful to be able to join them!

We discussed the Epicure party of the evening before.  I let M know that after much discussion with D about how I was working out at her gym, our friend D intended to join M's gym, too.  D said she would join, as soon as she was finished competing in the contest she is participating in.  Yes!  D finishes up the contest on Easter weekend.  I've been praying she wins!  Lord willing, she will.

It turned out that M wasn't surprised, for after I left D's home, she let M know how she could see an improvement in me and let her know she will join in the fun.

What was shocking to me was that during the course of Friday evening, D kept looking at me, commenting on how good I was looking.  I thought at first she was just being polite, since she knew I was working out at M's gym.  But, on Saturday afternoon, M let me know that D had commented to her, as well.

Well, I don't see it, for I don't really see much change.  My clothes do, however.  Some are feeling rather large.  Praise God!  Thank You, Jesus!


Until next time...
