Today I want to talk about the promises I made to Tom. One day, a few weeks ago, when we were talking, Tom told me that he didn't want me to lose all the progress I'd made in taking care of myself this year when he was gone. I promised him that I would not. The kids also made it their mission to make sure I didn't and both of our daughters went on walks with me all last week. So I have still been walking every day and even managed to get 10,000 steps some of the days. Today was the first morning I had walked by myself since last Monday. It was weird, but I did it and I'm thankful for it.
Last week, I told Tom that I didn't want him to worry about me after he was gone-that I was going to be okay. He looked at me and said "Really?" and I said "Yes. I'm going to miss you like crazy but you have made me a better and stronger person so I'm going to be okay".
So you may think it's strange that I'm still doing all the walking around town, but I'm keeping my promises to Tom. I started this whole Happiness Project because I knew what was coming. God knew exactly what I needed. So while I know this is not going to be easy and I miss Tom like crazy, I am going to be okay. I have to be, I promised Tom.
