THE UNDERDAWG OATH

I do solemnly pledge:
that I will do my best to eat healthy and within my calorie range,
that I will exercise to the best of my ability,
that I will watch my portions and avoid mindless eating,
that I will avoid or limit unhealthy foods,
that I will try to get enough sleep,
that I will stretch myself out of my comfort zone,
that I will always try to make healthy choices even when stressed,
that if I slip, I will get back on track with the very next opportunity,
that I will keep a CAN DO attitude, or ask for Help,
and that I will support my fellow pack mates

Because I am an UnderDawg
And every UnderDawg has the heart of a hero.

So Help me Spark People.

    I laugh to remember that life is for having fun.
    I read to remember that education is good in the long run.
    I smile to remember that some one may be falling in love with me.
    I dance to remember that a free spirit is the best way to be free.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I work to remember that sometimes it's not going to be easy and that's a good thing.
    I talk to remember that everyone should have a distinct personality.
    I love because that's the way I think that I should be.
    I think because that's how I get to that place that is for me.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I give advice because I want to make the world a better place.
    And I listen because it helps people feel like the world is safe.
    So laugh, read, smile and dance to see where life will take you.
    Work, talk, love and think to do the best that you can do.
    Give advice and listen just to help everybody else.
    But never put anyone else before yourself.

    It's not the presents that make Christmas so special
    It's the presence of those you love,
    whether they are with you in person or spirit!

    This day is a day of reflection, a reflection of Christmas pasts!
    We all have things we remember, and the memories it brings.
    Making snowmen, and angels in the snow.
    Singing Christmas carols, watching a TV Christmas show
    Shopping for Mom and Dad,
    trying to find them that special something
    They will love and cherish for years to come.
    Wrapping their gifts with the prettiest paper,
    the biggest bows and ribbons just for them.
    Opening of gifts with smiles & laughter
    Knowing you were the luckiest person alive.
    The getting together of relatives, and friends.
    Sitting together, sharing the best Christmas meal.
    And filling the house with noise, laughter, and love.
    Having the best day we ever had.

    The best gifts can't often be packed inside a box ..
    how can you wrap shared laughter and tears or talks that run into hours?
    They can only be wrapped & treasured in my heart.
