    Once again I am trying to find the energy to write. It was a long day, I was up late with Lee, and today he isn't doing that much better. He went to a half day of school and then to the Doctor's office for more tests. Not sure how long those results will take? Then on Weds. they will have him do an MRI, so he will miss school that day.
    The hard part for me is the heartache, watching your child suffer and hurt, and not knowing what is wrong or not being able to help the pain stop. I may not be making a lot of sense, I am over tired, sleepy and worried. I am trying to remember to turn this all over to my Heavenly Father and ask for peace, as well as to be guided to the right Doctor, the right test and the right diagnosis. I hope we find out those things soon?  Please keep us in your prayers, we could sure use them! Thank you!

Here is a great story to remind us... that it is up to us, to be the change we want to see in the world! Enjoy! 

Last Respects 

One day not too long ago the employees of a large company in St. Louis, Missouri returned from their lunch break and were greeted with a sign on the front door. The sign said: "Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym."
At first everyone was sad to hear that one of their colleagues had died, but after a while they started getting curious about who this person might be.
The excitement grew as the employees arrived at the gym to pay their last respects. Everyone wondered: "Who is this person who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he's no longer here!"

One by one the employees got closer to the coffin and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood over the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.
There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see himself. There was also a sign next to the mirror that said: "There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: it is YOU.
You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and your success. You are the only person who can help yourself.
Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only one responsible for your life.
