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.

I am bummed that I didn't sign up for the Spring 5% Challenge in enough time to be a Firecracker. The team was full, so I am on another team this time around. I am going to do my best to finally get back to working on getting healthy and fit! Be blessed and let me know how you're doing!

Hi Bill,
Thanks for your introduction to me on my spark page. It's good to have a Michigander on the firecracker team... Michigan is great for enjoying the variety of weather and sometimes challenging to get in outdoor exercise! emoticon I have the utmost respect for your mission work, and I am looking forward to working with you as a fellow firecracker!

Bill, glad you are back being a Firecracker for this challenge. I really enjoyed reading your introduction and want to thank you for all you have done for others as a nurse.
