My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Sunshiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine on my shoulderrrrrrrrrrrs makes me happy;)

I took this shot Monday evening 9-15-08
(next four lines are the chorus)
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high
If I had a day that I could give you
I'd give to you a day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I'd sing a song to make you feel this way
If I had a tale that I could tell you
I'd tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I'd make a wish for sunshine all the while
Sunshine almost all the time makes me high
Sunshine almost always
A very simple song lyrically, but when listening to John sing moves you deep down!

Omigosh, what a gorgeous photo. And I remember that song well. I loved John Denver. He was taken too soon.

Have a WONDERFUL time at your daughter's wedding! Omigosh! That's such good news.

I love the dress you have chosen, by the way. You just may steal the show. *heh, heh*

Tell us all about it when you get back!
