I have decided what my focus will be for this week: I will NOT make decisions based on my feelings. Our emotions go up and down. What seems like a good idea one minute may not be later. I will "set my mind" to what I will or will not do.... Read more

Several weeks ago, I bought a pair of charcoal colored dress pants. I loved the style and color. They were too small and I couldn't even zip them but I bought them anyway. Well, Sunday I tried them on and they not only fit, they fit comfortably.... Read more
