"I THINK positive,.
Therefore I SPEAK positive;
Therefore I DO positive."

"Tomorrow" starts today!!

2020 - the year of the Coronavirus.
March 9 - I self-isolated.

April 25 - so it's been over a month and no end in sight. My niece picks up groceries for me every two weeks and brings them here. She's been the only person in my apt since March. My children stay away, afraid they may bring the virus to me. To be continued ...

May 16 - having a bad bout of Bronchitis, brought on by fragrances in my apt. I should not have any fragrance in here at all because it triggers the Bronchitis! All my Scentsy stuff plus candles are now packed up and my daughter Sue will pick them up tomorrow. What a sight my hair is, so long and unruly! When I can get it cut again, I'm going for the Gamin pixie style, cut right off!

July 15 - I've had a bad cough for several months, today I had extensive tests done at the hospital and they could not see the cause of it. I also had the test done for the Coronavirus and am okay in that dept, thank goodness. I go to my own doctor on the 28th and he'll figure out what's behind this cough.

    "Life is like a camera... emoticon emoticon FOCUS on what's important, CAPTURE the good times, DEVELOP from the negatives, and if things don't work out, TAKE ANOTHER SHOT."
    Just keep filming!! emoticon

    The biggest thing is: when you struggle, FORGIVE yourself,

    Every step in our journey is important... emoticon

    To make something great happen you must get busy and make it happen.

    We all "can" do it! Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met.

    Take time every day to do something ridiculous

    Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain. ~Author Unknown

    Life Its not about waiting for the storm to pass it about learning to dance in the rain

    Take more chances to dance more dances

    I can see you dancing down the halls at the your apt .
