He had a disability (M.S) but we moved any way... to him it was not a disability and to this day it is amazing how he lived with this with such grace well three years a go he passed over and suddenly from Sepsis and i was devastated cause he was my Hero and best friend and i didnt know how i could go on with out him! He was my rock but GOD pulled me up and out and said i could do this on my own and here i am and a day doesnt go by i don,t think of my brother and know he is here whether its the red tailed hawk flying over me or a butterfly that wont leave me alone He is here... he keeps me going along with the love of GOD and i am Grateful i asked and received grace to go on and can do what the Creator wants to do with my life and i never know what i will be up to next .... but its been one heck of a Great flight in this path and loving and being with the people who are down and out is my job now before i was a volunteer @ the local nursing home and being with the dying and sad people but needed to move on but They helped me also! Im solo now but never alone and on my flight to better my self and to be Healthy and Holy... Thats what we are all meant to be... Fly with me on the journey of our lives....

emoticon emoticon emoticon BITS OF THOUGHT ABOUT PARKING emoticon emoticon emoticon

"Always look at the brighter side of things..whenever a car is stolen, it creates another parking place"

"One of the best bargains you can get these days is parking what's left on the other fellow's dime"

"A hick town is where you can park as long as you want to, but don't want to."

"Once it was ambition that kept people on the move. Now it's NO PARKING signs.

Weekends are wonderful!!!! But, they can also be a time for us to be challenged by events and situations that can sabotage our desires to live a healthy lifestyle. Here are some tips to help you have a healthier weekend:

**Moderate sugary and alcohol drinks. Many people fail to realize a good portion of their caloric intake comes from beverages. Whether sports drinks or sodas, sugary beverages do little to satisfy and could cause you to eat more. A John Hopkins University study revealed that individuals lost more weight over 5 months by eliminating calories from beverages rather than solid foods.

**Start a meal with salad or broth. Instead of diving right into the main course, begin your meal with a low-fat soup or salad. But pass on creamy soups or salads topped with heavy dressings. Eating the first course reduces the amount of food you will eat during the main course.

Take care emoticon and stay fit emoticon

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEKEND!!!

Thought for the day......

If you want to be
happy, you have to be
happy on purpose.
When you wake up,
you can't just wait to
see what kind of day
you'll have. You have
to decide what kind of
day you'll have.

~~* Joel Osteen *~~

emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~~Tomorrow~~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

When a man says he is going to do this or that tomorrow, ask him what he did yesterday.

What a fine world this would be, if today we did as well as we expect to do tomorrow.

Be as kind as you can today. Tomorrow you might not be here.

emoticon emoticon emoticon ~Enjoy your Tomorrow~ emoticon emoticon emoticon
