I am going to try and come on at least every 2 days. With the weather getting better I have some Spring cleaning to do. I won't be able to reach all that much while I am still in the wheelchair. I am hoping that the therapy that I am getting helps a lot. I am sick of it.
I think I am develping another problem. It has to do with the swelling in my legs. I just got a letter from my primary doctor telling me that I need to go and take a fasting blood test to check on the swelling.
I can't go today so I will have to do it tomorrow. I hope that the results are ok. I don't need any thing more going wrong.
I hope that everyone can enjoy their day today.
Best wishes to you all.

Wow, it's a brand new day, that is a gift given to you, a gift to enjoy and discover exactly what special miracles are in it just for you.
Oh, you get so caught up in all the attitude and mind set around us, that you do not see the real beauty that around in each day. We live in a country were we have freedom. I've been in several countries where I had to be very careful and aware of everything I did. I soon realized how great it was back home with true freedom. I am especially joyful because I can walk again. It may not be as well as I could before, but I can walk, just no running this time. And to have a mind that can figure out things, remember things and hold onto memories...wow, that is awesome.
Today I hope you take the time to see and discover all the special miracles that are in your day. You see, it's not about what we don't have, it's about what you do have. What is right there in front of you, all around you. Don't rob yourself of all the beauty in joy that is in today. Instead find it, embrace it and cherish it in your memories. Enjoy your special gift of today.
Oh, don't forget, I am grateful for the gift of your friendship and that's why I stopped by. Hugs!

Well, it looks like I am getting better, however, still have to take it easy for awhile. All this is teaching me something, easy does it. Just moving and doing something each day will lead to a giant step forward. It took me a long time to get this fat. I won't get thinner in a few days. Yet, I will if I just keep at it, little by little.
No, I may not be able to do six hours of heavy cleaning, but I can do a 15 min. clean-up, a 27 Fling Boggie, get 2-3 loads of laundry done and do my chair exercises, and feel like a million. Now that's awesome when I think about it.
So you may not feel like doing much today, but you can do something and that something just might be awesome too. Today is amazing Monday--No Excuses Allowed. Today is a Perfect Day to Just Do What You Can and Feel Good.

Hi, Well I finally reached that point where I am sick and tired about looking I do and feeling like I do. This gave me the kick in the pants to start my 100 day get healthy project. Today I am on day 4!! My first two day I over did exercising and paid a price called pain. Today, I did much better and I watching my portion size, plus eating three meals daily, NOT drinking soda, also walking and dancing for exercise. It's only day four, but I can feel my stomach has gone down

The end of 2014 is here. This letter is a special "Thank You" for the support, encouragement and friendship you so willingly gave me. 2014 was not an easy year for me nor my family, however, you helped me weather the stormy times. There is a silver lining in every storm cloud, because going through those tough times allowed me to see just how important you are.
Very soon we will be welcoming in 2015, a brand new year and adventure, filled with the unknown. My prayer for you is, may you and your family be healthy, filled with joy and peace filled days. Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers during the new year because you hold a special place in my heart. Happy New Year my dear friend.
May God abundantly bless you in 2015,

This Christmas end a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion, and replace it with trust. Write a love letter. Share something you treasure. Give a soft answer. Keep a promise. Find the time. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Listen. Apologize is you were wrong. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind; Be gentle. Appreciate. Laugh more. Express your gratitude. Gladden the heart of a child. Welcome a stranger. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of life. Speak of your love for others. Speak of it again. And again. For giving the gift of love is what Christmas really is.
I so want you to know just how special you are and how much I cherish your friendship. Have a very Merry Christmas.
