I Got a Second Chance

How many years had I
“been on a diet?”
The truth is never, though
I had tried for decades.
The one when the goal
was wearing the wedding dress
came closest but Mother
let the seams out when the day drew near!
I had tried for decades until a counselor
gave me the book Overeaters Anonymous,
Second Edition. I read it and decided to try
after Christmas…don’t start a diet in the fall!!!
But I remembered the stories, knew I needed it.
So December 17th I got in the car with sweet treats
and told God, “This is Stupid!”
That day I claimed my second chance
and I continue to “Keep coming back!”
Let me tell you why if you’re longing to get
your own second chance!
