Awaken Your Spirit to Adventure...

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

Thanks so much for the "sunshine". I sure need it today. A friend from church had weight loss surgery (some new procedure) a few weeks ago. She has suffered complications ever since and is now septic, in a coma and on life support. I am heartbroken!

Thanks for the Spark Goodie and your thoughtfulness & kind words today. I really needed the boost. Although I am doing so much better that I did with my first hip, I was disappointed with my first outpatient therapy session as the therapist wasn't as aggressive as I wanted with my home exercise plan. Maybe they know that they need to hold me back a bit since I'm so eager to get going! BTW. glad to hear you are focused and on track again emoticon

So happy to see you are getting back on track! emoticon
I am hoping I can soon do the same. After being hurt at work by someone I have trusted for over 25 years, I am just having a rough time. I will pull through this, I know. Keep on sparking!

Cold up there, Bill? Perhaps you are used to it. emoticon
Still hitting the trails?
I have a warm couple of days, before the blast gets here and I, once again, am gardening.
Just a friendly reminder how good it will feel, on the 30th, after all the effort we put in, until then.
I am doing well, this week and my hunch is, so are you.
Have a happy healthy day!
Chris
