Great Quote and Life Motto

I was watching Texas Country Reporter and was interested in a story about Senior Olympics. This is a time when senior citizens compete against one another in a track and field competition. The feature was about a man, can’t remember his name, who had never thrown a disc, shot put or javelin, but at the age of 60 felt inspired. He began practicing at his home with some make shift equipment, entered the competition and won. Since then, he is one of the best.

The quote for that show that I had to write down when I heard it was: “Old age only happens when regrets take the place of dreams”

This should be our motto. What are your dreams? Do you still have them? Are you still working for them? Have regrets taken their place? If so, its time to lose the regrets. Its not too late for dreaming. Think about what you still want, then get up out of your chair and go for it! Live life, starting today!

my accomplishments

I am proud of myself and its a good feeling.

*Yesterday I mounted a horse all by myself without a boost on the butt….This is harder than you think.

*I have exercised for 5 straight days…..5:30 a.m. workouts some days and 2 tapes a day for one of those days. I am seeing results already and want to keep going!

*I have been diligently writing. I have a dream to write and I have been purposeful about finding time. It’s going to happen.

* I have been nominated for Teacher of the Year at my school.

I thank God for all my blessings and know that he is the author of me and director of my paths! I love you Jesus for all you have done and all you’re going to do. May I live a life that is pleasing to you. “I can do all things through Christ, which gives me strength.”

happy Valentines Day

Today is the day that you either love or hate. I’m not that much into it, but I’m married to the most romantic man alive, and I was not sewn with as much as a romantic thread. Because this day is so special to him, I should make it special to me. We celebrated last night, since Saturday is our day for our niece to spend the night with us. We had a fabulous dinner at a swanky cafe, then had a movie. I was exhausted! It was 1:30 before we were home and I couldn’t hold my eyes open. This morning, of course my coffee was made for me as it is every morning, and a lovely card propped against the coffee pot. He is probably the greatest husband out there. I take him for granted all the time. I prayed for years for a husband and I would pray for him before we were married, even when I did not know him. God chose him for me. We have our tough times and I sometimes question it all. But then when I realize how much I love him, and know that I would do it all over again. May you have a loving day!

Solitary Day

Oh today was such a great day. The temperature was a wonderful 66 degrees with no wind and I spent almost the entire day alone. Glorious! I did all the things I love: finished a book, went to the library to get a new book, played piano, worked a jigsaw puzzle, went for a walk, surfed the internet. I enjoyed myself so much just hanging alone. I wish more of these kind of days would float by and I could grab them up.
