Sometimes we have rough days. I don’t always go to my friends seeking their support because I don’t have to. They are there for me, holding my hand and guiding me through those tough times even if it’s via a text message from someone around the corner or a package in the mail from my best friend half the state away.
I knew a package of goodies were on their way since Jenn had told me I had some treats she had baked specially for me in the mail. Saturday morning the package was on the door. Riley (my oldest daughter) tore open the package for me and pulled out mini paleo pumpkin muffins.
When Riley opened the first container my car was filled with the pumpkiny yummy smell of fresh baked goodness. (Did I mention I was on my way out the door when I saw the package and made my daughter open the box on in the car and then had to pull over immediately to take photos and sample? No? Oh.)
There were two little containers of muffins. Now, I think there may be one or two muffins left. Maybe. They were sooooo good. And they came at just the right time, when I needed a new healthy treat. Jenn told me she warms hers up and puts a little butter on them. I enjoy butter, but I hadn’t had a chance to try that before I went to Trader Joe’s and found the perfect spread for my warmed up muffins. BEHOLD! Pumpkin Butter!
I am lucky I have friends who support me every step I take. How do you support your friends and family? How do they support you? I really believe in a strong support system. (Can I say support a few more times?) So what do you do when you have that inevitable friend who doesn’t support you? We know we can’t change them, but we don’t have to let them get us down. I just remind myself I am on this journey for myself and I don’t have to follow their negativity and choices. Live life for yourself, to me, that’s when I can give the most to my family. When I am happy and content being me.
