Kathy mentioned the healthy reflection for today and I thought that it is something to really think about. I always think I need to improve the negatives. A priest once told me true humility is recognizing the things we can do and doing them. When we downgrade our talents we are not acknowledging what God gave us. Acknowledging our strengths and putting them into practice isn't just for ourselves but benefits everyone. He also told me when you receive a compliment it is enough to just say thank you. Accept the acknowledgement without playing yourself down.

I did not get to walk this morning. I pulled my back and had a lot of pain. Just could not doit. I took some pain medication and it is better. We went to Kassie play and it was really good. Not much happened here today. I did get to feeling better and pulled some weeds out of the flowers. My iris are almost ready to pop. Went to church and met our daughter for supper. She leaves for Chicago tomorrow for a conference pertaining to work. My son called last night and is getting me a MP3 player. I had been thinking of getting one to walk on the treadmill or when I walk by myself. I miss him but hopefully we will get to see him this summer. My other daughter wants to take us to lunch tomorrow. Spent time sitting on the patio and looking at all the different shades of green and giving thanks.

    So sorry to hear that you hurt your back, but glad that it got to feeling better. It sure doesn't take much to hurt it these days... Take care of it.

    Glad you seeing spring with your Iris coming up... My front garden is full now and the Glad's are blooming... So pretty. But my iris blooms didn't last very long ( maybe a week) ... I wonder if I needed to do something more for them?

    Sound like you that you had a nice Mother's Day... let me know how you like the MP3 player... I've often wondered about them... Oh and enjoy your lunch with your daughter...

    Have a great day...
