Hello! It’s been some time since my last post, huh? Yes, the site looks a bit bare because I realized that this blog, despite only a few people knowing about it, can still be accessed by people unknown to me, hence the removal of the previous posts from the public arena. I felt uneasy knowing that random people from various parts of the world were reading some very personal things about me; a recent stats check on the blog was eye-opening, to say the least. O.o
In any case, as I approach my 6-month anniversary, I wanted to let you all know that I am doing as well as can be expected. I am taking one day at a time and just trying to relax and prepare for the upcoming fall term. I will confess that finishing up the spring term with everything that was going on took a bigger toll on me than I expected or let on. Needless to say, my ability to handle stress feels considerably diminished, and I am now learning to accept certain new limitations on what I can and should do. Interesting how so many things can change for an individual privately and yet seem relatively unchanged to the outside world….
One of my prayers these days is that I live each day resting in God’s hands, protected from whatever Satan tries to throw my way. *sigh* The unseen spiritual battle is so very real at times, it’s quite sobering. At least the physical battle can be seen….
On a positive note, I am now down 30 pounds from March and continuing to live a healthy lifestyle. Here’s hoping that I live until at least 90! 😉
