Today I was stuck trying to think about what to write that would include the word you. It just happened to be the prompt for the #5MFW #write31days. My son helped me think about how the words you and me go together. I needed to tie it in with my theme of a healthier life.

You and I need each other to encourage and to push when push is needed. We remind each other that we are not alone. I have committed to writing for 31 days, each day bringing me closer to building habits that lead to a healthy life.

In keeping with the idea of community and a healthy lifestyle I can’t leave out the me and you relationship with my family members.We cook food together, take walks and play games, pray for and with each other and let love lead us.[bctt tweet=”Healthy habits include spending time doing things with others.” username=”GaylWright”]
Today I went outside with my son who now has a wheelchair that will ride across the gravel driveway. He enjoyed spending more time outside where he could have freedom to go off the porch. Not only were we able to enjoy the sunshine and wind, but we had tea and a good discussion.
Earlier in the week there was you and me time with my granddaughter, Lacey. She is working on a project for school where she had to interview someone. Then she was to make a scrapbook of their life. I was honored that she chose me.[bctt tweet=”It was fun working with her, and to see her enthusiasm. ” username=”GaylWright”]What I didn’t realize before was that she thought the two of us were a lot alike. What a blessing and an encouragement she is to me!
Exercise and Prayer Time
One habit I’m trying to establish is a prayer time each morning right after breakfast. Today was my first day, and just as I started I was interrupted by a message on my phone. I checked it and realized I needed wisdom to know how to respond. So I went back to my prayer journal and continued to pray.[bctt tweet=”God answered and the conversation was fruitful.” username=”GaylWright”]
My exercise for today was a brisk walk. It was a beautiful day to be out in God’s creation. I started out praying as I walked, but then I was caught up in the beauty and the fresh air and began taking pictures.
