I think I just had my wake up call

So I was looking through some f my favourite blogs this morning and I came across one of my favourites, April Showers blog design. Now I know its bad business sense maybe to mention other blog designers, when I also offer designs, but I just have to mention this one. She is different. Her blog is funny and from the heart - and she's genuine. Also she doesn't delete my comments (although she never responds either) like other designers generally do...although I try hard not to comment for obvious reasons.

Well the day before yesterday, at the tender age of 28, her husband had a heart attack. He's in ICU and I pray to God that the recovery is going well. But the fact that he's only 28 and her 24...well I can't get that out of my mind. For one thing my heart aches (scuse the pun) that 2 such young people are having to deal with this, but also I know that I have abused my body and generally not taken care of it for many years. I don't know why but I've kind of always had the thought that actually I probably am going to die of a heart atack one day and seemed resigned to that fate....I don't know, it's hard to explain...obviously I don't want to die. I guess I feel helpess from all the trying and failing to lose weight and get fit.

Anyway, I think I just had my wake up call :(

I doubt April will read this, but if you do then know that I am praying so hard for you guys. Anyone else reading, could I ask that you say a quick prayer for April and her hubby, and maybe go leave a comment on her blog to give her your support? I'd love you forever if you did :)

In other news, I have posted the next Blogger Uncovered at Adori Graphics....its an interview with myself I'm afraid LOL. But go check it out anyway, I did try to appear less boring than I am in real life LOL.

Thanks for the update. I haven't been on April's blog in a long time. I can't believe that someone so young (28) could have a heart attack. I'm not in the greatest of shapes and neither is my husband. Just a reminder to take care of what God gave us. Now if I can just get my husband to a doctor......

Wow ... 28 is so young! I will say a prayer for that couple. Thanks for being so transparent ... we all have areas we just don't seem like we can ever get victory in, so you are not alone. Don't give up! ;0)

Hi Melinda *waves* nice to meet you. 28 is just insane isn't it? I really feel for just sucks :(

The Blog Makeover Girl said...

Oh Melinda I just realise where you are from - I really really loved reading your blog yesterday...such a great find! And you have another follower now :)

I'm praying for them.
Try Slimming World; I am but I have to do it without class support as my youngest son is autistic/Asperger's and doesn't like me to go out. My eldest son is doing it to. It's great for diabetics like me. I don't mind joining forces with you if you want?

The Blog Makeover Girl said...

Yeah the more the merrier! I've been doing ww for ages and the thing is it DOES work...the problem I have is sticking to it...whether its ww, sw or whatever else. Although on saying that I;ve just had 4 good days...I think that really was a wake up call. I've even managed to talk hubby into having a couple of meat free days a week (good opportunity to squeeze in more fruit and veg).

How's yours going?

Amanda (aka Tigermadstanley) said...

It's really helping keeping my blood sugars under control. My hubby bought me some snazzy WW digital scales and we spent ages inputting all the data when we got them but somehow (I'm deadly around anything electrical or electronic) everything has been deleted! I'll get Matt to show me how to input data into the Wii Fit and then I can track my weight loss.
I often mix in a week or more of WW with the SW for variety.
BTW I love your blog designs. I've just discovered digital scrapbooking and the boys have bought me a scrapbooking programme for my birthday this coming Wednesday. I love being creative and I've started to do all sorts of things since losing my job. It's amazing the inner resources and skills you find when the going gets tough.
Your London photos made me feel quite homesick as Lee and I were both born and brought up in London. I'd go to visit my parents and sister but Dan (15 yo autistic/Asperger's teen) refuses to travel (even if we could get him outside the house;)) Blessings, Amanda x
