What a simple concept… we’ve all heard it and understand it but do we live by it? Can we embrace the idea and make it part of our every day? I’m going to make it my June mantra and at the end of 30 days I expect it will have impacted both my physical and emotional world in many positive ways.
Start with small steps that can lead to great rewards.
Remember to...... Talk less, learn more. Bark less, wag more. Eat less, more often. Spend less, save more.
Less alcohol, more clarity. Less salt, more vinegar. Less sugar, more fruit. More chewing, less choking. Less worry, more sleep. Less driving, more walking. Less anger, more laughter.
Today I start, "Sitting Less and Moving More" as June marks a new season reminding us that we still have time to continue our journey along the path to a healthier life style.
What will YOU be doing Less of for More results as Spring winds down and we swing into Summer??

I could not have participated in last years "Relay For Life" if my life had depended on it... this year, thanks to Sparkpeople I can and look forward to honoring all those who have given freely of their time and energy in preparation of this life affirming event.
One day. One night. One community. One Fight.
Our family will be honoring those who have past as well as those living with and having survived cancer while participating in this years' "Relay For Life" in Southern California. Look for our "STRIDING FOR LIFE" booth and get Lots-O-Free-Hugs
Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people- to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer; remember loved ones lost to the disease; and fight back against a disease that takes too much. Won't you join us if you live in Orange County California. Or go online and find a location near you.

"Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, but there’s only one mother in the whole world."~ Kate Wiggins
There truly are so many beautiful, and awe inspiring things in this big wonderful world. I have been so very blessed to be gifted with the one mother I have. She has taught me how to be the best mother, grandmother and mother-in-law that I could possibly be just by watching how she has lived her life. She is a constant inspiration and role model and, like so many other women, I find myself becoming more and more like my mother every day. And for that I couldn't be happier. Thank you mom… and thank you God for the 83+ years you’ve graced this planet with her sweet soul. She’s been our families biggest cheerleader, loved me longer than anyone I know and been a better mother to my hubby than his own and, as a result of that, the only grandma to all our children and a beloved great-grandma who’s loved more than ice cream.
My dad and mom in the summer of 1946... age 18 & 19.
Just a few months before my dads passing the summer of 2007.... after more than 61 years of marriage.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom =]
