Bit by Bit. . .Little by Little

As I type this morning, Caroline is watching "The Wiggles" and they're singing the song, "Bit by Bit." I love that song. I don't know if I like it so much because it is reminiscent of the songs of my youth, or just the message that it conveys.

"Bit by bit. . .little by little
Block by block we're building it up
We're constructing a TV set
And you can help us build it, too."

Of course, now they're singing the "Vegetable Soup" song. So, the mood is gone. Sigh.

I guess I love that imagery. . .bit by bit. . .little by little. Most change in our lives happens in small chunks -- but over time, those little bits add up to some big change. I have really lost my vigor in losing weight. I've tried, but sadly I have let the demands of my life (family, work, civic responsibilities, etc.) take over. When I get overworked or overstressed, I reach for food.

I'm ready for things to settle down enough to get back on track. So, maybe after tomorrow (D-Day) I'll be able to pull myself back together.

That's right--24 hours from now, I'll be on Market Square, helping get ready for the Buddy Walk. I am very excited about the prospect. I think it's going to be a great year. The weather is supposed to be excellent - high in the upper 70s. You can't ask for better.

Please, pray for us. Pray for strength, endurance, patience, and long-suffering.

You might also stick a little prayer in there for Edison. He experienced his first "Lock-In" at the church last night. We dropped him off at 6 p.m., and picked him up at 9 a.m. this morning. In that 15-hour stretch. . .no sleep. He gave me a quick synopsis of the night/morning and all the fun they had. Then, he got in bed. It's been absolutely still since then!

Have a great Saturday! I hope you'll have a chance to enjoy the beauty of creation--and get a chance to rest a bit. There's a NASCAR race on tonight, so I'm especially excited. I hated the idea of missing the race tomorrow because of the Buddy Walk. (*But, I would have done it without complaining) My favorite - Jeff Burton - won the Busch race last night. That was fun to watch.

Oh, and I tried a new show that I think I could really like. It's on ABC . . .called "Women's Murder Club" and is based on some of James Patterson's characters. I liked the first episode. There's also a new show coming, "Samantha Who" with Christina Appelgate. . .it looks funny. I'll keep you posted. . .I know you're on the edge of your computer chairs!

Happy Saturday!!
