Well, another year is before us. DH and I have started it off on a great note by taking care of our health. We are on a quest to identify foods that don't settle well in our bodies and reduce or eliminate them. My goal is to lose 10+% of my starting weight by the time we go on our anniversary trip to Hawaii in mid-March. God wiling, that should be totally attainable. Here I go!

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    What I like about YOU is: that your sweet spirit shines for the rest of the world to see. I admire your love of God & family. I admire that you are doing your best to be a good example for your family & that you are striving to do better for yourself at the same time. You amaze me. You must have a secret time machine to get everything done that you always seem to be on top of. Great job Jessie! You're incredible.
