Well let me tell you I have really enjoyed your Blog. It's funny how you have put to words so much of the same thoughts that go through my mind. I joined spark people. This is a new one for me. I never did an online journal with anything. I hope it gives me the motivation I need. Have a great day and continue to post your wonderful thoughts on life. You have inspired me. Thank you
