We each travel this globe on our own quest. As we travel, we cross paths of fellow travelers who touch our lives. As some leave us, we shake our heads and wonder why they were placed into our paths. With others, the journey together has been rich and rewarding and each are better for having been a so-journer.

May each be blessed with finding persons who will help them on their journey so that they reach their goals.

1. To take this journey "one step at a time."

Making a commitment is the first step.

Increased activity level and sensible eating are key.

Giving and receiving support from others who are also working toward a healthier lifestyle is imperative to sticking with the plan.

    yes, a lot of people are using this color nowadays.

    My problem is that I always pick a color, but we take so long to begin the project, that a whole bunch of OTHER people have gone and used it and I feel like a copy cat. That happened with the exterior of our old house. We were going to go with a tan and burgundy. But no!
    We ended up freshening up the neighborhood with yellow and white. Nice and crisp. I loved it.

    This house is a terrible gray right now. Yellow isn't quite right for it, so I'm choosing a crisp, fresh the creamy woodwork in my living room. The cream will help blend our neighbors' houses together. Then I'm doing a crisp white for the trim.
