Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

1) What we do today bleeds into all our tomorrows. Working out, passing up unneeded bargains, eating at home, praying for a loved one, or difficult one I should love. Every one of those choices has a cumulative effect that makes for a healthier life for me and my family. The opposite choices have an impact as well, negatively.
This reminds me of the C.S.Lewis quote. "every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you, the part of you that changes into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or a hellish creature."
