"Life is like a cash register, in that every account, every thought, every deed, like every sale, is registered and recorded."

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen


Tonight I will share with you that I was involved in a very bad, life threatening accident on 22 May 1982. I had a near death experience (NDE) after nearly bleeding out internally from my spleen, which was ripped in half. Also had 6 badly broken ribs, a punctured left lung (from one of the broken ribs), a broken left elbow and the loss of 6 units of blood. At the time I was 8.5 months pregnant. Baby and spleen were removed by two separate surgeons. Not to worry, the baby turned out to be DS #1 who is now 31 years old. The point is....the 'life review' is very real - it did happen during my NDE, in addition to many other things. The accident? I was kicked repeatedly by a mare I owned, in her box stall. She planted her front feet, started screaming and began kicking me over and over again in my back. But this quote applies to SP too. We can't do this journey if we fudge a little bit here and there. We have to be brutally honest with ourselves when it comes to everything we eat, every workout we do. It's honesty and action and bring the results we're looking for! The same is true at the checkout - honesty is a good thing.


Only got 4 hours of sleep last night!! You know where I'm headed. It was a real busy day again, but all good. Just need to get some rest and I'll be fine tomorrow.
