It all starts with making a choice.
Decide what has to change.
Take the chance!
Put forth the effort to become something better!
Change will come based on our decisions and our effort to commit to them.
I found the most beautiful place to camp, and it is on my favorite mountain, Mt. Monadnock!
We camped on Sunday and Monday nights. The campground was fairly empty. I loved the quiet!
There are sites with electricity, and sites without. All sites are very large with lots of privacy.
There are 5 sites that are remote, and right on the side of Monadnock.
It was nice to wake up and start hiking up the trail to the summit!

My son and his wife both passed their medical board exams.
We just found out 5 minutes ago.
Congrats Dr. Mom and Dr. Dad!

Today I am thankful for my two sisters, Donna and Amanda, and how special they made my wedding day more than 7 years ago (April 14, 2007).
There is an injured young bear in the woods near my home. He limps around, and now is becoming a nuisance. I am no longer able to run down our dirt roads in peace.
I feel bad for the poor bear. He needs some medical attention, and perhaps Fish and Game will tranquilize the bear and look at him.
In the mean time, I have to find alternate exercise! I will not put myself in an unsafe place. I have learned to both love the bear, and to respect them too.
