One Step More
A hill is not too hard to climb taken one step at a time.
One step is not too much to take, one try is not too much to make.
One step, one try, one song, one smile, will shortly stretch into a mile.
and everything worthwhile was done by small steps taken one by one.
To reach the goal you started for, take one step more, take one step more. James Dillet Freeman

My goals for this year:

1. To be active on teams and with team mates
2. Make/Check schedule each day and prioritize time/activity
3. Take me time
4. Continue to keep journals (prayer and weight/food/exercise).

I am still keeping a journal. Keeping a journal helps me see how far I have come and also where I need to improve or change a habit.

I appreciate all the people on my teams and realize how much support they give me. Between them and my hubby who is very supportive I feel I am very blessed.
