Please join me for a laugh...

My son was away for the weekend so that meant it was going to be the first night alone in the house since my hubby passed away. I have dreaded this night but knew it would come at some point.

My mom was here Friday night, went to my oldest son's Saturday morning for a garage sale and then home for a nap. Saturday afternoon I went to the store to pick up a few necessities...

Friends, when I got home, took my items out of the bag and set them on the counter, I really didn't know if I should roll on the floor laughing or fall to my knees and cry...

My first night home alone and this is what I purchased for dinner!

This is pitiful, pathetic and it's no wonder I have gained SO much weight since Mark's passing...

Please laugh with me and not at me!

I'm sure I will do better next time:)

Considering Something with Joy,


  1. HI Cindy, we first connected through the Made to Crave Facebook party and have shared a few comments on Facebook since then. I was touched by some of the comments you made and my heart goes out to you.

    I can really identify with looking to food to fill some of the gaps in life and hoping it will numb some of the pain. It works for a short while, but then is bites back and leaves me feeling worse. But with God's help, using the principles I am learning in Made to Crave, I am starting to make some changes. This has been a life-long struggle, so it's slow going sometimes, but I believe I need that time to truly change my habits. God's grace is there for us.

    We are starting a new Made to Crave group here through my church in mid-April. The group will meet at my home. I sure wish you lived nearby so you could come over and join us. Do you have a support group of some kind there to help you through these next few weeks and months? I know it might be hard to go to a group, but I'd sure encourage you to reach out to others as well as the Lord. Let your friends wrap their arms around you and help you carry sorrow.

    I am saying a prayer for you tonight. May God give you reminders of His love and comfort and fill those needs in your heart.
    Love and prayers,

Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
