Got my first call out for a sub position this morning at 5am and wouldn't you know it, I was sleeping really well and we have an appt. with the oxygen provider for Hubby, so I can't accept it. Only probably is I don't know how to turn it down on the phone to keep them from calling me back. I hope I got it resolved on line. As I was looking at the on-line system, I don't know how to accept a job on line. Guess I will have to read the instructions again. They also have me signed up for High School. I am only licensed through 9th grade.

I don't have an inspiration for the day but I do have a joke I got from my biology lab professor:
If at first you don't succeed, then destroy any evidence that you ever tired!

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ~Aristotle

It's NEVER too late to BE what you could have been!

My inspiration came in the form of a visit to the parents of a childhood friend. Her step-dad is 93. He fell three years ago and broke a hip. Yesterday, he finished mowing his hay fields. He tilled his 1/2 acre garden several times this spring in the hopes the rain would stop long enough to plant. Luckily we are in a dry spell now, so I look forward to seeing his garden in another month. This is one determined and peaceful man.

My friend's mother and I started talking about TOPS. I did not realize she had ever been overweight. She was not over weight when I was a child, nor was she overweight when I moved back into the area. Years ago when I lived in the city she gained 60 pounds. She joined TOPS with a friend. They both lost the weight. Her friend quit TOPS and gained the weight back and died at age 66. Mom still faithfully attends TOPS and has maintained her weight loss for years. She also spends three hours a day in her garden. Both her and her husband radiate good health and sharp minds.

They have motivated me to stay with TOPS and to get out in the yard more frequently. I want to be around for my grandkids and great grandkids. I want to be the person who twenty years from now is sharing a great story about success at TOPS with a younger friend who needs a little encouragement.

Hello, I am new to SP and trying to figure out where to connect. My husband and I took over his family's dairy farm two years ago. We have 100 milking cows and 200 head. Having not grown up on a farm, my learning curve has been big and my body has hence been neglected. I do all the milking and we have two young children, so I am trying to figure out how to squeeze taking care of me into the schedule. I am new to farming, but think I could benefit from some advice/encouragement from those more experienced. Are there any other dairy farmers on this team?

So sorry to hear about the childhood friends death. It does make one stop and think, does anything really taste that good? Just one of many wake up calls we receive in our daily travels. Skeeter emoticon

Today a good friend from my childhood died. He grew up on a dairy farm and then as an adult switched to beef cattle. He started losing his battle to maintain a healthy weight in early adulthood. He is my inspiration to stay on track with SparkPeople.
