He Lost The Battle, But He Taught Us How To Win The War

Good Afternoon.

As some of you already know we lost my Father In Law yesterday afternoon. He literally held on for as long as he could and he fought a great battle. Some look at his last few months as suffering but I look at it as a lesson. He held on simply for all of us to realize that we should be happy every day that we wake up no matter rain or shine. If you wake up and you can put your feet on the ground and you are breathing then that’s a good day. He also wanted us all to realize how important family is and that if we work together anything is possible. Though people say things that may hurt, we have to remember that it’s frustration in the moment. No matter how annoyed we may be at someone or something you have to LET IT GO, for we are not guaranteed tomorrow. He will be missed by many people here on Earth but he has been welcomed home by many who have missed him in the Heavens. Thank you to all of you who have prayed, sent emails, cards, flowers, or just a random text message saying we are thinking of you. It truly meant so much to my family and I.

This morning the hubby and I took the day off from Fit World, but that doesn’t mean you should!!! Check out this amazing facility and see what it is going to be the NUMBER 1 GYM in Rhode Island come October 1st!!
