It is all about the journey- taking time to smell the flowers, see the bunnies, hear the birds....!!

Life holds many unknowns...It is my prayer that when life's storms come my way...that I may learn to DANCE IN THE RAIN!!!

I want to challenge myself to live in the moment...we can't speak for tomorrow, but at least we have TODAY!

The things I like to do to manage stress is...
biking the trails, riding my stairstepper to 80's , exercise videos, playing with my American Eskimo & Scottish Terrier, quiet evenings watching movies with my dso, Saturday lunhes with my mom at the Tea Room, quilting, hot relaxation baths in my jetted tub with guided imagery by BelleRuth Napersteck, and inspirational devotionals that keep me inspired with hope. God made me. That makes me special. I have to remember that.

Everyday is a special part of the journey...
