So much to do and so little time to do it! Well, Christmas Day will come whether I am ready or not. So today I will do the best I can, finishing shopping, wrapping, food preparation and also the other chores that still need doing, cleaning, laundry, bill paying, etc. But what I must remember is that getting the 'perfect gift' for someone is not as important as sharing a hug with them on Christmas. Making the perfect dessert is far less important than just sitting and enjoying any dessert together. Making the house spotless is not as important as filling it with lots of family on Christmas Day. I vow to remember the reason for the season and fill my day with joy, peace and gratitude and reflecting on all the wonderful blessings in my life!
Wishing all a joyous holiday season!

My husband and I are flying to DC in the morning to visit my son and his fiancÚ. I am really looking forward to it. But right now I need to pack and am avoiding the task;why is that?
We will only be there until Monday morning. Early flight back. Have a conference to go to all day. So, do not need much but I guess I get hung up on weather and making sure I have everything I need. Just got to do it, get to bed and be up very early to make our flight.
Will take my iPad and hope to log on and stay connected to SP! Haven't missed a day yet!
To all, hope you have a great weekend!

First off I woke up to kisses from my two grandchildren. (They are with us every other weekend). Then my husband and I drove to downtown Boston to see The Dalai Lama at the Copley Marriott. (He had purchased the tickets for my birthday). First we were treated to about a half hour of songs from James Taylor. "You Can Close Your Eyes" and "You've Got a Friend " were two of the ones he sang.
"Hey ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold. They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well, they'll take your soul if you let them, oh yeah, but don't you let them."
(Great little mantra for SP I was thinking!)
Then the Dalai Lama came on stage with a standing ovation!
Topic of the day: "Beyond Religion, Ethics, Values and Well Being."
Very dynamic speaker. Emphasizes compassion, holistic thinking, embodying the mind and the heart. How we are all connected. With more compassion, there would be less world turmoil. This is the second time I have heard him speak and first for my husband. We were certainly awed by his presence and truly inspired by his words.
Then off to an art store so I could buy some supplies.
Lastly, dinner at a favorite restaurant. Now home to enjoy the rest of the evening.
That is what constitutes a wonderful day!
To all, hope your day was wonderful too!

Let us, then, be up and doing
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.
~ Henry Wardsworth Longfellow
Disappointed that the scale did not show a weight loss today but must be patient. My food choices have been relatively good! Interesting though, I am not getting in my 8 glasses of water a day and my exercising has been lacking. At work there is a water cooler just steps from my office so there are no excuses there. Just get too busy and time gets away. I will commit to a streak of days getting in the water I need. When I had the time off this summer I was in a great routine of walking, some weights and some resistance bands but back in the full time schedule has hindered my progress. Need to make it a priority. With these two commitments I am certain I will see some progress on tha scale come 10/1/12!
Thanks to all for your motivation, humor, honesty and inspiration on SP pages!
