Awaken Your Spirit to Adventure...

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

Hey Bill,
You are welcome! I was laughing because after I got through with my response, it turned out longer than your post. Isn't there a bell that should ring that I've gone over my limit of characters? LOL. Glad to hear you are feeling better, that makes me HAPPY!

I was also HAPPY that you posted, because it helps us all learn from one another, and that's what this is all about!

Have a FANTASTIC week!

Warmly, Nancy

For complicated reasons, we have to have the propane folks out to check on the tanks. Well they're out in the back of the house down a road nobody has plowed all winter. So I had probably 100 yards of 3+ foot deep hard packed snow to shovel a path through...whew!

Thank goodness for my mp3 player to help keep me movin'! :-)

I loved what you said on my friend's blog, about God being with us. That was really beautiful.

Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit. (e.e.cummings)

Awwwww...LOVE IT! Bill.
