Continuous Improvement

I've often joked that losing weight has been my second full-time job. I'd been a professional dieter since grade school.

Bless us all, that as we live
We always comfort and forgive
We have so much, that we can share
With those in need we see around us everywhere.

Wishing you and all those you hold dear a wonderful holiday season and a blessed new year.
