A thankful heart

“The unthankful heart … discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!"

Henry Ward Beecher

Happy Thanksgiving!

Pet of the week, Alvin

Adorable Alvin is this week's pet! What a cutie! Barbara uses the following adjectives to describe Alvin... loyal, playful, hyper, and affectionate.  Alvin often follows her around her home all day.  If she is resting he will be sitting  at her feet. By the way, do you remember the Bubbles the Pug? Well, they live in the same household.

Barbara and her daughter are the owners of Alvin. Barbara is a committed Christian, loving mother, friend, and most recently a teacher for a  Bible Study during Wednesday night. Her amazing daughter is student at a local high school. I has been a joy to see this family serving at church.

Last month, I joined Barbara and other church members as we participated in a prayer walk. I look forward to joining her and other church members during our next outreach effort.

Balance... exercise and nutrition

"If we could give, every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we have found the safest way to health."
Hippocrates 460 B.C. – 370 B.C.

What is the balance of exercise and nutrition in your life? Has the balance in your life shifted? As you have grown older, have you found that it is more challenging to gain a balance?

A few years ago, walking was my favorite exercise. Then, I enjoyed the elliptic machine. Now, I love water aerobics and stretching. Recently, I have found a new exercise, POUND.

In the next few weeks, I will add physical therapy to my routine.  Recovering from surgery will require physical therapy. J
