Be Healthy & Happy!

"People universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you are fortunate enough. But this is not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it...You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings." ~Elizabeth Gilbert... "Eat, Pray, Love"

I never knew you had Crohn's! Bless your heart, I have heard that can be so hard to deal with. I love all your sugestions and I will certainly try those. Thanks again!

Thank you for my sparkgoodie, pretty lady! I am feeling MUCH better and I'm eating some soup right now. Didn't go to work because my throat is sore from yesterday and I'm still a little tired, but DEFINITELY on the upswing! emoticon

I added a little more Splenda to the Pong Pong recipe because it tasted kind of bitter. However, the taste of the sauce changes when it is cooked, so be sure and do your final taste after you get it heated up. Enjoy!

Thank you for your encouragement, pretty lady! I just got back from a 2 mile walk and I'm feeling great. Hope you're having a great weekend!
