Little Things That Make Big Things Possible.

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

It's the little things that make the big things possible. Only close attention to the fine details of any operation makes the operation first class.
~J. Willard Marriott

This quote relates to SP so well. We start out with little things......drinking our water every day, exercising in small amounts to get used to doing it regularly, coming to the SP site to learn more from the numerous articles, check on our Spark Friends, etc. Eventually the big things become possible. We finish our challenge, reach our goals one at a time and feel and look better.

Go SP.

Yesterday was a GREAT day!!

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

I got on the scales and I have lost 3.5 lbs. Yah for me!

Walked 3 miles with Leslie, again. Then went to town to run errands and look for smaller bluejeans as my 16W are baggy. I bought a 14 in a misses.....not a 14W, but misses 14! Yah for me, again.

Doctor's office called and DH will go in the hospital next Thurs. (17th) for tests, have the heart procedure Thurs. morning and go home Saturday about noon. We are so ready for this to get done and help his irregular heartbeat to get regular!

This is a hoot!!
The Dinner Invocation

This lady, a resident of a retirement community, was asked to give the invocation at a dinner/convention of retirement community managers. She does so, but then decides to add a few words of her own as a part of her invocation. Enjoy!

How's Norma?

Saturday, February 05, 2011

> A sweet grandmother Telephoned St. Joseph 's Hospital. She timidly asked,
> "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"
> The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number of the patient?"
> The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, "Norma Findlay, Room 302."
> The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room."
> After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow."
> The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good News."
> The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?"
> The grandmother said,"No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302..... No one tells me s___."

HYMN #365

Friday, February 04, 2011

Hymn #365

This is a hoot, but I suspect the minister didn't appreciate it.

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said, 'If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

With even greater emphasis he said, 'And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, 'And if I had all the whiskey
in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

Sermon complete, he sat down..

The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, nearly laughing, 'For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365, 'Shall We Gather at the River.'

Smile, life is too short not to!

If this brightened your day
Don't let it stop here
Pass it on with a smile
Keep spreading the Cheer.
See you at the river
