Day 303 – Pearl Harbor


      It was a wonderful day at Pearl Harbor.   A friend at church knew a Park Ranger so we got a personal tour of the monument. I had a lump in my throat the whole time.  What an incredible time in our nations history. True Valor.  


      Planning for things that I don’t really want to do needs to be a nonnegotiable deal with myself.  I have for far to long wavered like a ship a sea.  So this morning when the bed was oh so nice  I knew that I had already made a decision that supports a healthy lifestyle so I sprung out of bed and headed to the gym.  It was nice to know that I had already accomplished one of my goals for the day before 7 a.m.
