Making Progress and Happy New Year

Well, it has been quite a long time since I posted here. I've been thinking of things I'd like to post but they seem to get all jumbled up in my heart as one big SIGH of wordless emotion. Do you ever get the feeling, that your heart is a dam about to burst? I need an outlet, so I thought I'd start by writing again. It's always helped in the past.

I am also back on the health wagon. I let myself slip into that chocolate/carb, couch surfing oblivion which felt so good but severely weighed me down in more ways than just the physical. It was an escape, a drug that I used to keep from facing my giants. Oh boy, do I have some giants. It's only been 5 days since I started but I already feel lighter and a little clearer.

Yesterday, I took Grace and my niece to the school playground for recess. My niece loves the opportunity to run around with the big kids. When the bell rang and I looked at my two frozen girls, I asked my sister (the Grade One teacher at the school), if we could come in and warm up. Grace promptly found a chair to climb on and off of and I asked my sister if I could sing them one of our Ang Tulay icebreaker songs. She gladly approved and they loved it because you get to butt hips with each other (a giggling inducing move for any age). It only took 10 minutes but it was really refreshing for me. My sis and I talked about me coming back to teach some more songs to the kids which I consider a fabulous idea. :)

Ok. Here's to making progress. Whoop whoop. Bye for now.
