What is a Great Day - A 10 mile bike ride with your best friend who just happens to be your husband to Starbucks. A couple of hours in the pool followed by a nap and then a three mile run...and an evening of scrapbooking with friends. Call it a mini-vacation. I need a day like this every week.

Happy 4th of July
Every day we have a blessing. Here I sit on the couch a little dog on each side and my buddy - Sir Duke at my feet (picture).
We had friends to our house for lunch - it was fun to cook for others. Cooking is something I have not done for a while. It felt great to be in the kitchen.
I spent time on Thursday scrapbooking after having an emotional day with youngest son. Scrapbooking helps me see life from many views. I can look at a picture and see how much my family loves and supports each other. I can look at a picture and remember the issues going at that moment. No family is without issues at some time or the other - The secret is to focus on the positive and overlook the negative.
DH and I rode bikes this morning - what a great morning to ride the weather was perfect and not much traffic. DH legs were getting tired - I shared my secret for getting through a ride or a run when I feel like I can't finish - I am riding or running because someday I will not be able to - there are many who can not - push a little more and enjoy the pain while you can.... Still trying to talk DH into a 30 mile bike ride.
