It's Wednesday, February 1st. It's going to be a good day...at least I'm going to do everything I can to make it a good day. How? I'm going to stay positive and do what I can do to be healthy.
So, what lesson to I want to teach my children today? That when things might seen a bit crazy, slightly depressing, that you can choose to be in control. You can choose to smile. And, of course, the obvious one, you can choose to love.
Today, I will eat vegan. Whether it is determined that I have cancer or not, eating vegan is the healthiest way to eat. I will be doing something positive for my body, the environment and the cows!
For breakfast, I'm going to have oatmeal. For lunch, I am going to eat a salad. Dinner seems so far away; however, I plan on making spaghetti with mushrooms and carrots in a tomato sauce. My husband and kids will like the dinner and that will make me happy!
Anna, Liam, Owen and Gavin, you might be upset that I am going vegan. You might not know (yet) why I am going vegan. However, at the heart of the matter is that I love being your mother. You four are the best gift your father and I ever got. Not a day goes by when I do not feel so grateful that you four love me as much as I love you.
Here's to our new journey!
