Veteran: Whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve, living or dead - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount "up to and including their life". That is HONOR, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. Today is Veterans Day, let us remember all of our veterans, currently living or no longer with us, for the sacrifices they have made for us.
Be sure and display - fly your flag!
How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
I think there is one higher office than president and I would call that patriot.
But fame is theirs - and future days
On pillar'd brass shall tell their praise;
Shall tell - when cold neglect is dead -
"These for their country fought and bled."
In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.
A Special Thanks today to my Soldier Boy, Joshua. I am so proud of you!

"May this fall season reconnect us to the ever-changing aspects of our lives: color, complexity, beauty and mortality."
óKenny Moore, author of The C.E.O. and the Monk
I am grateful for the blaze of scarlet and gold on the hillsides. The roar of the football crowd. The cold nudging nose of a pointer or setter urging me to take him down to the field.
I praise You for the abundance.
This season I will be aware of Your messages and the beauty that You so generously give. I will praise You, the Giver of life, and all that You grow. I will live a life according to the inspirations of Your grace, so that I may reap a plentiful harvest in the autumn of my lifetime and life everlasting. Amen.

Hope anyone reading this today is blessed. I certainly was and wanted to share it with you all.

Thanks to all of you who visited my last blog. It was nice for you to stop by and always good to hear from you.
Take care and do have a safe Halloween. Hope you enjoy all the little ghosts and globlins that come your way.

Don't Let Disappointment Block Your Path - Use It As a Opening Instead!
I have read many Spark People Blogs and Success Stores and at times, I have to confess, the old green eyed monster got to me - jealous of you all being able to do things I could not do, accomplishing things I would never be able to accomplish. This past year I have been able to see beyond the jealousy and disappointment with myself; challenging myself to go beyond the limitations of my mind. As a result, I have found success in my own mind and with my own abilities. I keep pushing myself in spite of my limitations to go a little bit further than I did the day before. Some times, it is simple as setting the treadmill on an incline or the resistance on my bike to a place that feels uncomfortable and continuing through the discomfort and arrive at a place I call accomplishment.
On one of my teams, there was a challenge to walk/bike 365 miles this past year. To my surprise, I just passed 1000 miles and I still have two plus months to go. If someone had challenged me to 1000 miles, I would have thought "Yea, Right" but I no longer have that kind of thinking. Thanks to Spark People & the support I have found here, I am thinking beyond my so called "limitations".
Hope you are thinking beyond your limitations too and finding success.
Enjoy the video - it is a great one!
