Last Wednesday marked three months on the beach for me. I have to admit it I got a bit reflective, thinking of all the changes I've made and things I've learned along the way. Mercy, what a lot of changes - and you know, it's been a lot of fun, too. I have to thank you all for being such a big part of the fun for me. I have several friends who offer me amazing support, but you all are always there, 24/7 and have turned me on to some great things and gave me lots of things to think about and try. Rather than bore you all with the little stuff, I decided to narrow it all down to my five favorite things I've learned along the way. So here goes:
1. I can do a whole lot more than I ever thought possible once I put down my self-defeating attitude.
2. Only God can make a tree - but at this rate I might just be able to climb one of His trees again some day.
3. If these jeans look this bad now, I probably shouldn't have been wearing them 45 pounds ago...
4. Beans are my friends!
5. I have a neck - who knew?!
Thanks to all of you for making these first 3 months so productive and fun. Thank you for welcoming me even though I don't get to post nearly often enough. And a special thanks to Ruthxxx, schatzi, and beachgal for taking the time to moderate this - you all are great!
Of course, this also made me wonder what other folks have learned along the way. Anyone else want to share . . . or maybe fess up?
Thanks again everyone - I couldn't have done any of this without you!
