Default Chinese in Plain English...

A good laugh for the morning...
Lately with the gluttonous holiday season in progress, I have been doing, most days, okay with weight loss. Not great, but I am still in gear. Last night I decided to splurge and get chinese buffet takeout. There is no behaving myself there, that is why I haven't eaten it for 4 months, lol. So after gorging, I read my fortune cookie. Darn those cookies. It said:
"It doesn't take guts to quit" I couldn't help but laugh. It is now taped to my refrigerator.

They say God works in mysterious ways, I say sometimes He's pretty blunt.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I'm gonna do this.

Never miss an opportunity to offer encouragement to others!
