What a week this has been. I am back in touch with a wonderful friend of mine. Her daughter is 9-months older than Emilee. They have been playing wonderfully together. My friend is (besides DH) the only person in my life that has ever made me feel like I could do things. The only one that has ever encouraged me to do things I never thought possible. She is an amazing woman, friend, mother and wife. I can only hope that I can “grow up” to be like her.

Well, she is helping me with my weight battle. We sat down and talked forever about my diet and exercise. She is a personal trainer so she showed me a great workout. As she was helping, encouraging me through the workout I finally felt like I was doing the right thing.

I knew deep down inside of me this was what I have needed all along. You know they always say sometimes you have people come into your life for a reason. Ten years ago she walked into my life. She changed me for the better as a teenager.

Now, after 2 years of losing touch, she has come back into my life. Perfect timing really -- a time when I have been at my ultimate low; A time when I didn’t think anything would ever pull me out. Guess what? I have been pulled out and I am on my way up the hill. It will be a hard climb but I will reach that top someday.

I wonder what the view is like?
