I'm not quitting this time

I've had enough of starting an not finishing. Watching others participate, existing instead of living. I want to be fit so I can do the things I love - gardening, playing with (future) grandkids, sports - without having to stop and rest all the time.

emoticon emoticon emoticon CHRISTMAS SAYINGS emoticon emoticon emoticon
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.”
~ Harlan Miller

One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.”

There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.--Erma Bombeck

Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.”

He who has no Christmas in his heart will never find Christmas under a tree.”

My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?--Bob Hope

Of course, this is the season to be jolly, but it is also a good time to be thinking about those who aren't.--Helen Valentine

Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won't make it "white".--Bing Crosby
