Breathe in.....Breathe out.

Susan had to cancel our plans tonight. :( I was really looking forward to spending the evening with her and because of work schedules, we probably won't see each other for at least another week. Long distance relationships are so hard.

I have been working on this post for an hour now. I want to write that things are OK, but I have really struggled today and cried a lot.

One thing I know for sure.....I have some pretty awesome friends. Look what MJ gave me a couple weeks ago:

I kept meaning to do a post showing this great gift, but this whole quitting smoking has really thrown off my balance.

Tomorrow will mark one week as a non-smoker. I am going to be honest: this past week has been H-E-L-L. I really don't crave a cigarette anymore, but I am learning how to handle stress without automatically going for a smoke. I feel like I am learning to walk again.

Breathe in.....breathe out.

non-smoking is really great...

Hang in there, you can do it.

You can do it!!!

My husband quit smoking two days before we got married. He was a real gem to be around that weekend. ;)

You're doing great, and you deserve this. I don't know about you, but I was really self-destructive for a while when I was depressed, and coming to terms with a lot of things that had happened. This summer you made huge progress for YOU, and for being happy about who YOU are. Quitting smoking is another step toward showing yourself, your family, and the world that you love yourself, you are proud of yourself, and you will not punish yourself for being who God made you.

Do it for Caroline!
