Good Morning Sunshine

I would like to thank all of you for your kind thoughts, prayers and positive thoughts. They were a great source of strength as I went through my surgery. The surgery went well and after a horrible and negligent stay at the hospital, I am recovering well at home. Your inspiration for today really rings true with me.

Time Off For Surgery

I hope everyone is enjoying the daily inspirations as much as I am. I will not be posting any for the next week or two as I am having much needed hip replacement surgery. I am looking forward to this surgery as it is something I have needed since September of 2009 and the pain I have been in since then has been horrific. I am looking forward to being able to sit in a bit of comfort and tat again as I have missed it greatly.

Until then here are a couple pictures of the Hawaiian coastline that I like to look at and think about the more positive things in life.I hope you will enjoy them too. See you soon.
