Ending the day on a good note

It has been a good day. A GOOD DAY! Socially awkward me had lunch with a group of people. I have found I am not very good with people outside of being a reporter. Today, I did okay. The only thing was an outside of my comfort zone moment. Lunch was different but good. I had barbecued roasted chicken along with a salad with dates, strawberries, feta cheese and walnuts drizzled with a blackberry viniagrette. I  have seen meals like this in magazines and on the food network. There was no voice from ED. It was just a peaceful with good outer conversation. Dessert was cake.

Once again, it was a good day. It was good body  image day. I was wearing a cute professional khaki shorts and a cute pair of high heeled brown sandals. When I looked in the mirror, I looked good. I felt good. So after such a nice day, it was fitting I went to a town, where some of the citizens are trying to open their own library. When I arrived there at former elementary school, it warmed my heart to see thousands upon thousands of books. I love reading and libraries. As a shy, poor kid, I would have been lost without books and the library. It was a great escape. I hope JJ will grow up to love reading. He is learning how and can't wait to learn more about the various comic book heroes he loves.

It was nice to end the day with people who wanted to provide the youth and adults in the community with a library. I don't have much in life but I can write a story to inspire others to help. And even though I am just getting home from work, I feel good about spending two hours with them. As Ice Cube once said--"Today was a good day."

  1. Glad you had a great day! I read to my kids when they were young. Once they got older....they didn't seem to be interested in reading. I just decided to get them something they would enjoy so for my daughter it was my Enquirer and for my son it was wrestling magazines. And my son became a reader. Unfortunately, he has now lost most of his sight but he's ok. Never caught on with my daughter but now her daughter is an avid reader!!!
    She is in 6th grade and reads beyond high school level.

Stopping ED from gaining

One of the hardest things I had to ever do was to explain my ED to my 11-year-old son. His father had talked to him about it, which I have...
