Jackie's Journey

May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

Jackie,

Thank you so much for the Goodie, every little thing helps at this time. How is this cold winter treating you here in Michigan? I am baring with it but to tell the truth I am not a cold weather lover any more. Are you feeling better now, its been a while hopefully you are.

I was stunned to hear about our Jill that came out of nowhere for me. I just was not expecting that at all. I think things finally took its toll on her and she was ready to go. I am just thinking about her son these days and how she always worried about him.

Again thanks so much for the goodie...it was sweet.

Joanna

Jackie,

Very sorry to hear you are sick! Wishing you back to health!

"It is important to then make a conscious effort to transform your thoughts. It may be true that you often cannot overcome your food cravings or stick to your diet.

"However, if there are times when you are able to stand strong, then FOCUS ON THOSE MOMENTS AND CELEBRATE THE TRIUMPHS. Maybe you put less sugar in your coffee today and said no to a second slice of pizza.

"Giving attention to the positive things will help to create greater self esteem and motivation to continue with your weight loss efforts."

You'd be so lean, that blasts of January
Would blow you through and through.
~William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale (Perdita, Act IV, Scene 4)

Let us know about the rehearsal!
