“We can evolve while still staying true to who we are. We can honor who we've been and choose who we want to be next."
~ Dr. Who. (Jodie Whittaker)

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.
~J. R. R. TOLKIEN, The Hobbit

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

    Yes - alas. It WAS me that caused the last snow storm. But, I've promised to keep my prayers pretty simple from now - won't fiddle around with anything as powerful as the weather any more. What I'll pray for now is good health and success for all of us!

    My friend does very well with her corn allergy. If you are interested I could send you the breakfast cookie recipe. It has brown sugar, oatmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, egg beaters, canola oil, pureed prunes, walnuts, raisins, and craraisns in it.

    Yay for new friends... :) Yep, I hear you on the self-imposed constraints. My hubby and I were watching some reruns of Dharma and Greg and I said "you know, if I hadn't gone through a lot of what I have in my life and tried to make everyone else happy, I really think her personality would be how I be naturally." Something to strive for! :D
