Having lived more than half a century, I've finally learned that my attitude creates a lot of my experience.

My daily prayer is:

Heavenly Father,
Teach me to love as You love
To forgive as You forgive
To see myself and others as You see us
And to boldly walk the path You have set before me.

    Thank you so much for the goodie! I had knee surgery and have developed massive blood clots in my lungs and legs. I am still in ICU but doing much better. I really appreciate it!

    So sweet to hear from you. I was just looking at the Sass group information. I considered deleted the group. It is marked as inactive. I left it for now.

    Glad to hear of your progress. This past year I lost, gained, and lost again 30 lbs. As I go into winter, I'm hoping to establish new habits. I've already noticed that in the cool evening I'm craving stuff. Especially watching a movie.
