In 2012 we challenged you to write 12 letters of Gratitude to people that influenced your life. Many of you did this and wrote amazing stories of the experience.
This year 2013 we are focusing on BEING PRESENT. This is your life. Each day is a gift. You can't turn in yesterday for more time. So make the most of each day and continue to be grateful and embrace life! Be Present! We are changing the world...ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Sunday, July 29, 2012's about time

Today was filled with family and extended family.  I also found this awesome thing called a genealogy fan.  It has my genealogy on both my parents sides for nine generations including me.  It's colorful too! I love it.  So this is day 2 without facebook.  I didn't think that totally through, I should have collected emails...since some of my daily contact happens through messaging on facebook with friends/family.  So I did cheat a wee bit and send a message through facebook.  But I didn't do any "Facebooking", lurking, facebook surfing, or facebook time wasting...which was my actual goal.  I mean this IS my present to MYSELF :)  So although the OCD was killing me today, I feel like it was a victory.  I also boiled down some chickens to make Chicken and Dumplings!  Yum!  Can't wait, mouth is watering already!  Dinner was fabulous too.  Sweet Darling husband made bell peppers and onions with seasoning in the cast iron skillet on his new grill.  I am so thankful for a husband that cooks.

My news for the day is I am taking a plunge!  I am going to do the Couch to 5K training.   I am super excited. Here is the Link for  Couch to 5K~  and PodRunner (the free beat music I downloaded that follows the interval training for the Couch to 5K!)  Thanks to my friend V.F. for the help, guidance and advice! Hope you enjoy...
Changing the World...ONE letter at a time!
