" I am the force. I can clear any obstacle before me, or I can get lost in the maze.
My choice, my responsibility, win or lose; only I hold the key to my destiny."
author unknown

Today was a crazy day. I had a "DI" meeting with my team. They spent hours trying to solve one area of thier solution, before I knew it, it was three o'clock and I had not  eaten lunch..sigh...so I ate lunch at 3, then snack at 5 ish, and then ate dinner around 8pm. Talk about a little crazy.
   I ended up going out to dinner with my husband. I ordered a petite steak(no salt), salad with vinegar, and rice.  I had eaten the correct portion of the steak and offered the rest to my husband, he did not want it...so I went to cut another bite and he said, I thought you ate all that you were going to..I said..I really hate to waste it...He said it is ok to not eat it,  and it really is too small to ask for a doggy bag..,,it  really is ok not to eat it . Then he smiled and said..you can write in your journal how I saved you tonight.....
He was right..the  remaining steak was taken away by the waitress...The reason I came so close to eating it, was not that I desired it so, it was the fact of wasting  good food.... a statement I can still here my mother saying when I was little...if it is on your plate you will finish it....there are starving people in the world.  Tonight I realized that my eating or not eating the last of the steak, will not solve world starvation...I had ordered the smallest steak they had on thier menu and in the end  did what I thought was best( with my husband  supporting and  helping me make the correct decision..).
I really do love that hubby of mine....he is the sweetest!!
