Ready for "another" change of life

Was time to update this since the last update started out that I have been on SP for over a year...........well is closer to 5 years now. Procrastination seems to be an obstacle. OK now...........when I joined SP I was heading into the 170's and pre-diabetic ...........my entire family diabetics and on insulin. Seen first hand what can happen if this disease is not taken seriously. That is not to say I have my nose to the grindstone all the time but rather I am a work in progress, thank you ...

Seen first hand what can happen if this disease is not taken seriously. That is not to say I have my nose to the grindstone all the time but rather I am a work in progress, thank you Lord! I have managed to lose some weight and have had set backs like surgeries and illness, and yes just plain laziness. I am responsible for what I have become and what I can be. With help of this wonderful site and even more wonderful people that I have met on this journey I hope to be around a few more years so might as well make them as healthy as possible. Would appreciate a "boot" along the way and if I can give a helping hand to you along the way I will gladly do so. We can do this together!!!

1. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
2. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
3. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
4. You mean the world to someone.
5. If not for you, someone may not be living.
6. You are special and unique.
7. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want,
you probably won't get it, but if you trust God to do what's best,
and wait on His time, sooner or later, you will get it or something better.
8. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good can still come from it.
9. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look:
you most likely turned your back on the world.
10. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
11. Always remember the compliments you received.. Forget about the rude remarks.
12 . Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better
when they know and you'll both be happy .
13. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

They Did Their Share

On Veteran's Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.

Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it's been many years;

In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.

Some came back; some didn't.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.

No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.

Let every veteran be honored;
Don't let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can't repay.

We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let's say "thank you" to every wearer.

By Joanna Fuchs

Take a moment this weekend on Monday at 3 PM and say a silent prayer for all of our "heroes". Freedom isn't free and only by their great sacrifice are we able to enjoy the many freedoms each and every day.

Blessings to you
Pat

Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful
individuals above the crowd... a little bit more.
They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more."

Have a Terrific Thursday

"Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can." - Author Unknown


I think this is a great attitude for all of us. Even when we don't want to do something, we can talk ourselves into walking a little father, doing a few more crunches, taking one less bite, it is all up to us.

Here is to having a great Wednesday my friend.
