The Silver Owl

I am about to take off to travel the world. I have been a member of SparkPeople since 2009 and have made a lot of wonderful friends along the way. I thank each one of you for your support, love and encouragement while I have walked my journey to this point in my life.

3 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Things like that cause you to reevaluate your priorities, dreams, goals and how you choose to spend each precious moment.

I am about to take off to travel the world. I have been a member of SparkPeople since 2009 and have made a lot of wonderful friends along the way. I thank each one of you for your support, love and encouragement while I have walked my journey to this point in my life.

3 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Things like that cause you to reevaluate your priorities, dreams, goals and how you choose to spend each precious moment.

I choose to spend my time now traveling the world with the love of my life, my kind, patient, funny husband of almost 22 years. We are taking off on March 13th, 2014 for India and Nepal and then will continue traveling around the world for as long as we can.

I am blogging about our journey, day by day with pictures and comments on my personal blog spot at www.anotefromabroad.com. I invite you to follow along...

I also love to collect quotes. I will share a few of my favorites as the list grows...

"We all have our trials, and we all experience hard times, but I don't think we should ever let it disable us from what we want to do." Elizabeth Smart (kidnap victim/survivor)

"Value the person more than their mistakes..." JJ

"It is bad to suppress laughter because it goes back down and spreads your hips!"

"The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action. "
John Dewey

"Laugh every day - it's like inner jogging."

“The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within – strength, courage, DIGNITY.” - Ruby Dee

“One’s DIGNITY may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.” - Michael J Fox

"The difference between school and life? In school you're taught the lesson then given a test. In life you're given a test that teaches you a lesson." Tom Bodett

I look forward to joining each of you on this journey. I welcome new friends and hope if you find me a kindred spirit you will add me to your list.

Hugs,
~JJ~
