an extra hour

So, it's time to "fall back" an hour again...time change is upon us. So, we are given this extra hour. What do we do with it?

Also had a chance to spend time with others singing in the rain today...that was fun. Gotta watch the "head back" verse while actually singing in the rain, however. :) Love you guys!

Take time today and invest it in someone never know what will happen.

I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
