Words that keeps me going ......

****************************************
"I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My choice. My responsibility. Win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

****************************************

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful." Mark Victor Hansen

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." Michael Jordan

Jen, thanks for the hug goodie. It means a lot. Mom goes for a stress test today & they dr also wants to so some sort of test on the vein in her leg, something about the pulse rate in her leg vein not being the same as her heart rate, sounds like they may suspect a circulation issue. Praying for good answers & that surgery isn't required. Thanks for your friendship.

Hope you have a good week & some pretty weather too.
