This morning we attended the college graduation of our son-in-law. I tried to push sad thoughts away and enjoy the special day for him. I did get teary-eyed a little bit when I thought of how my brother valued education.
After the graduation, our son-in-law chose his favorite restaurant for a celebration with his family. It felt so good to laugh and visit.
I feel like I've made some progress in having healthy choices become second nature to me. Here we were in a place that specializes in barbecue ribs but I really hankered for a salad, so I ordered a salad that was served with salmon. And I actually stopped eating when I no longer felt hungry!
