I will try to remember that its what you do for your body that keeps one younger regardless of your age.

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.
-Tom Venuto

It looks like we have a year left yet but it was a great reminder that we have to keep the renewal in mind.
I had heard of possible snow! Can't believe that it just won't quit in so many places. My BIL lives in Knoxxville and there was snow today near them as the system that got us here rolled through there. Well, at least you know it will melt fairly quick. The only positive thing about last snows (lol)
