You can't out-train a bad diet

Cultivate optimism and let it drive you forward.

Health is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.

We can't control the waves, but we can learn to surf

Turn a setback into a comeback

Success requires backbone, not wishbone

Thank you for the goodie! It's so funny because at the beginning of spring I googled "seedlings" to get some wallpaper for the iPad, and that's the exact picture I chose, not even realizing that it was a Spark Goodie. When I first saw it, I thought, "How did she get a picture of my wallpaper?"

So, yep, feeling good and trying to get something going here. It was no good the other way!

How about you??

You went to Costa Rica?! How have I drifted off so far into lala land that I didn't know that? I think I missed responding to your last email, and fell out of touch. Hope you had a fantastic time! I'm not one for travel, but that's a place that entices me.

Thank you! With our beloved exchange daughter leaving in June, this gives me something to look forward to beyond that and soften the blow.
