My Friend

Ms. Aqua is my friend. She is always there when I need her and I need to admit I need her a lot. It makes me wonder why I don't make it a priority to hang out with her more often. I'm starting to feel bad because I realize that I've ignored her on occasions. She's always sitting there ready to fill this void in me when I'm crying out for someone to answer my plea to help me stay the course.

Maybe I just didn't realize how important she is. She is very versatile and has helped out so many in so many ways. Those with arthritis, she has lubricated their joints to help them move easier. Those facing one of those "0" birthdays like the big 4-0, 5-0, 6-0, she is a true friends, by helping to eliminate facial lines. What about those facing a plateau, she raises metabolism to get you losing again. She also helps with muscle tone as you are losing to prevent sagging skin. She's been known to eliminate that run-down draggy feeling called fatigue. She's also a partner in giving you clear, bright eyes by adding moisture to prevent dryness as well as being there for you to improve your circulation and blood flow. Often puffiness and bloating disappear with her magic. I've heard she can even help suppress your appetite. Just indulge in her contents before eating ANYTHING and you might just not eat as much.

For some reason while I was thinking about my friend, it reminded me of the hymn "Flowing like a River". The one line of "setting all the captives free" resonates with me. I want to be free and I will be if I walk day in and day out with my friend Ms. Aqua.

Cute. Fortunately,I have always been a water drinker and also haven't had a regular soda since the 1960s. Mom drank Tab, diet rite and Diet Pepsi so we usually had that at home. I do like wine though and Maker's Mark whiskey which I learned about on a Martha Stewart show heehee. My Sunday school kids frosted and sprinkled all the cookies and I never tasted one- not even a crumb. We also had a big cake for a lovely woman who turned 90 yesterday- she still drives, attends Sunday school and church every Sunday and lives alone. I want to be her when I grow up! She does use a walker but hey, that's doable at age 90, right?

Ms. Aqua and I are becomming close friends, also... I've learned that if I don't spend time with her daily, I feel cruddy!

Good luck in your quest to be closer to Ms. Aqua!

Ms. Aqua is my BFF. I'm so lucky that I've always been a water drinker.
