This is fourth place

Those hopeful of better days are less inclined
to risk today on momentary gratification ~Herbert Gans

The disciplined mature individual does not act simply to gratify the feelings and impulses of the moment. She sees long range objectives. Lasting happiness comes not from indulgences driven by current sensations but from the achievement of ultimate goals.

This makes the second day I've earned 100 points on SP
I got to take my 3 year old GrD to the mall, where I broke down and bought her a frilly Valentine/Easter dress.
My first day of playing Wii Fit Plus, and first day I've walked 1 mile toward my virtual walk to Daytona Beach.

Yesterday. my considerate Bishop knew I am more or less house bound because of the snow, so called to tell me how I could view our church area conference on the internet. only minuets before it started.

I was able to watch it and received much inspiration.

Yesterday afternoon, two men from the church came and gave me a priesthood blessing and my blood pressure is down lower than it has been in months without medication. My blood sugar is normal too.

All I can do is praise the Lord.

Living in Florida and having a mild winter.
Clearing the burn pile yesterday.
