Last year, at this time I made a choice.
Little did I know how much that choice would change my life.
And now, that I look back on this year, I can say that with all certainty.
When I gave up Diet Coke, I was hoping for a change in my health and how I felt. That did happen for sure. It took a few MONTHS for me to finally come out of the fog of my addiction to Diet Coke, but once that fog lifted, I sure felt a whole lot different. Better.
I learned more about what I put into my body affected me so much. I have not only changed what I drink, but also, what I eat. I began paying attention to how I felt. How I processed certain foods. I have made huge changes in my diet and lifestyle. And I feel good! Really good. I am thankful.
But, this time last year, we had NO idea we would be entering into the world of adoption again. But about 2 weeks after I had given up Diet Coke, we saw that first little one. We knew her as Natalie- she was our doorway to entering again onto the road toward China. (She is being adopted by an amazing family- and soon after we bring Lauren home!!!)
And so, a year later….
- I no longer drink Diet Coke.
- I no longer eat wheat or gluten products, or yeast
- we are headed to China in less then 2 weeks to bring this little lovely home….
And I stand amazed.
