It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
- Chinese proverb often quoted by Eleanor Roosevelt

Complaining only makes you miserable. Either plan and execute an effective response, or gracefully accept the circumstances you are called upon to bear

I need to get motivated to keep my weight at a healthy level. I am 71 years young and have osteoarthritis which makes some exercisesdifficult. I like to walk. my hobbies are painting, knitting and crocheting, singing and helping others.

Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
by Ralph Waldo Emerson

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results. -Kenneth Blanchard

    Hi there! Saw your post in the Animated Pets thread and thought I'd stop by. Your furbabies are so cute! Are they siblings? They look so much alike!

    And how did you manage that photo of the fox? They are usually so shy and elusive! He's a beauty!
