• Today among other things, I am thankful for the words of MarquiD.

    Everywhere he posts, energy flows!!!

    It is my hope that the power and strength he is giving so freely to others, he spends on himself as well.

  • Today I am grateful for:

    My strength when away from the "community" of BFL.

    My ability to strive for greater goals.

    My healthy family.

    My willingness to focus on the positive, even when outweighed by the negative.

  • Today I am thankful for:

    Getting over an hour visit in with our son - he turned 22 today. He still melts my heart - he's a clone of his dad in many good ways.

    My remaining dog Buddy - for taking me for a walk tonight, however short, so that I could breathe in fresh air and walk in the rain. (thank you MO for singing to me too)

    For being excited to be in a Dragon Boat Race with our daughter. She went from daughter to friend in a matter of about 2 years and its pretty cool.

    Friends I have yet to meet in person, but feel close to and protective of.

    Being excited to wake up and hit the floor running to improve my mind, my spirit and body by continuing with Body for Life. This community is magical.

  • Today I am grateful for:

    God's Grace.  Everyone needs some, but I need a lot.  I know now that I have it. 

    Michelle.  She refuses to give up on me and I think she's a Godsend. 

    Mischievous Nuns.  I met the cutest Nun and she loved causing trouble.  Nothing is cuter than that. 

    The turtle sunning near me while I was relaxing by the pond today.  He made me smile.

    A great meditation this morning.
