6:57 am in California and checking in for another 24. Heading out to walk with a few friends while my daughter runs, it has been a great time to fit in exercise, I was off this past week and went every morning, which was a nice way to start the day. This coming week I am only working on Monday, so Iíll walk after work that day. I am definitely enjoying some time off this summer.

Hope everyone is doing well, sending love to all, and congrats to everyone celebrating a milestone.

❤️Delilah

Absolutely Trees! Itís the best attitude we can hold today. Heard in a mtg bout four yrs ago that a grateful heart wonít drink. My list just keeps growing longer & longer. If you havenít started one, I encourage it highly;whether it may seem small or not, just jot it down then watch the smile on your face after reading it on a crappy day!!
Iím all in after that good twelve hr shift
