One of those things ya get in the email... I got this one from a friend, and wanted to share!
Words to Remember...
Someone will always be prettier.
Some will always be smarter.
Some of their houses will be bigger.
Some will drive a better car, their children will do better in school
and their husband will fix more things around the house.
So let it go and love you and your circumstances.
Think about it, the prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart
And the most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children
And the richest woman you know has the car, the house, the clothes ~
but might be lonely. . .
and the word says, "If I have not Love, I am nothing."
So, again, love you.
Love who you are.
Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say,
"I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed, to be disappointed!"
"Winners make things happen~ Losers let things happen."
Be "blessed" ladies ~ and encourage one another
To the world you might be one person,
but to one person, you might be the world!

All weekend and all week we have been setting up a 125 gallon reef aquarium. Hey, couldn't get to a beach, so I brought on in the house LOL! We acquired it... (long story)... this passed weekend and it has been something else to get into working order! One fish is still in quarantine due to an illness we're treating, the rest (only 4) are doing fine, but it doesn't look like the anemone is going to make it through the stress of the move.
The tank has great potential! It's full of live rock, but so far only a few feather dusters have peeked out. We've added a cleaning crew of a variety of crabs, shrimp, & snails. They're fun to watch! Anyhow, it's going to be impressive when everthing's settled and de-stressed.
Currently we're waiting on new actinic bulbs to arrive. Those were much needed. Eventually we hope to add some aquacultured corals (flower garden of the ocean :) and a few more peaceful fishies. For now, it's just the rock, 3 blue damsels, a clarkii clown, an anemone, and hopefully the foxface will get well. He was blind, we're treating him, but don't know if it will help, he goes into the tank later this evening.
This isn't our first tank, but it is our biggest!

Love the words to this song, sung by Rebecca St. James on the Veggietales show...
There’s a story that started on Christmas
When a baby was born in the night
And those who came far, who followed the star
Were seeing a heavenly sight ...
a heavenly sight.
Well the years hurried by, and the boy, now a man
Could make the blind see with a touch of his hand
He was born to be King -- he was Rabbi and Priest
But the best that he had, he gave to the least ...
He gave to the least.
He was born and he died, almost 2,000 years ago
He laughed and he cried, he felt all the fears we know
But what does it matter? A story so strange ...
Even if it is true, what does it change?
What does it change?
Well he spoke like a prophet -- like no one they’d heard
This simple young carpenter -- crowds hung on every word
He hated injustice -- He taught what is right
He said “I’m the way, and the truth, and the light.”
His friends soon believed that truly he was the one.
The Savior, Messiah, God’s one and only son.
But others, they doubted, they did not agree
So they took him, they tried him,
He died on a tree ...
He died on a tree.
God has made a way
for all who mourn and grieve
Death will never be the end
if you just believe.
There is nothing left to fear
nothing Heaven knows
For he died for us to give us life
and to give us hope He rose
He died for us to give us life
And to give us hope He rose.

Well, I've gotta do something... I'm ready for a weight loss woosh! I've decided to try Kimkins. Today is day one of the K/E for me. We'll see how this goes.
It's time for a change...
Because I'm fat I don't swim with my kids, wear a swimsuit in public, wear sleeveless tops in public, wear shorts in public, heck, I don't even go out in public very much. In August we have a theme park outing planned. I love rollercoasters. I should be looking forward to this, but I'm already agonizing over what I'm going to wear and whether or not I will fit in the seats of the rides. I'm forcing myself to do this for my kids... but deep down, I'm dreading it. I'm so uncomfortable with myself, and I'm tired of it. I'm tired of watching life from the sidelines, I'm tired of avoiding fun, it's time for me to join in! Time to embrace life and enjoy my family!
So, to get the ball rolling again, I'm trying a new plan. I'm excited about it! I have great expectations!
