I talked to Joani, my longest and best ever friend friend yesterday. I knew she read my posts from time to time but didn't know how much she really kept up with what I was saying. It's interesting and somewhat significant that I had taken time to really pray about my difficulty on Monday or Tuesday. I prayed and then I forgot I prayed. What I do remember is the conversation I had with God. "Please show me why I continually sabotage myself when it comes to eating," I said to Him. " Maybe if it becomes clearer to me I can deal with my issues and stop jinxing myself."
I don't know if you believe in answered prayers or not but I do. I just never expected it to be answered in the form of Joani. In a quick phone conversation with Joani yesterday she said several significant things. First of all she pointed out that Keith is a genius. I'm going to go back and read all his comments because I agree with her. Then she talked about the issue my mom had with my body...that I now know was not all bad. WhatJoani said made sense. I want her to repeat what she said so I don't take it out of context or misspeak. Maybe she'll have time to leave a comment. But, my point is this, sometimes the answers to our problems are so close we can't see them. Joani was the answer to my prayer and I can't wait until this weekend when I can talk to her more. Keith too.
