Chapter 4, Page 30, Book 12

Life’s abundance is all around you, and each day brings new opportunities for fulfillment. Use every day to keep moving, and bring your best possibilities to life.

Ralph Marston

MERRY Monday!


 move - the act of deciding to do something

Get out and do something. Move. Interact. Explore. Breathe. Take a chance.  It is better to be doing something than nothing.

After a very busy few weeks here at my house the partying is finally done and I'm back to being somewhat normal here until that new grand'babe' appears.  I'm hoping to take advantage of this down time to go and spend some time at my camper.  I need a little break away.  Still coming too is a visit from DS#4 and his family in June, so I think if I'm going to get to my little place in the woods, now will be the time to do it.

You have to make every moment count in life -- that is and will be my goal for what ever remaining days I have.  We none of us know how long that might be.  So while it's a little bit of a downer to be back to normal days, I'm going to make the most of them and do what I love to do.

My plans are always subject to change, as I do know that everyday comes bearing some surprises.  Some good, some bad, but always they are all worthwhile.  And I always thank the good Lord for them all.

I won't worry about the still large to do list, but glory in each day as it comes.  It's up to me to live the life I want and to do it now.  I'm not going to worry about the future, just take each moment as it comes.  I'll keep on keeping on.  One step in front of the other.  Sorta of like doing the cha cha cha here!

It's going to be a very MERRY Monday here at my house.  Hope your Monday is a MERRY one too!

'On Ya'-ma

Thankful for your thoughts today, Ma...wonderful in 80's sunshineyday here in the south...Our main job in life is to love one another...soo You take a break and enjoy every moment of every day...forgeting the chores...and we can all love one another by sometimes just doing what we want to do, and enjoying ourselves (just pleasing ourself) us contentment and calmness to ~again~ get back to "everyday' duties, and responsibilities. ~ Jean(Rome Georgia Girl living in Calhoun
