For your consideration

mom and I

Mom and I are doing good, and we work at keeping each other safe. On October 28, she will celebrate her 90th birthday. She walks with me almost every day now and we both have chores we do. We try to stay busy, and do most of the time. The picture above is from the past.

perspective, reality?

I’ve allowed this to happen to me before:

I find something that concerns me, maybe even life threatening for someone. Others may have done the homework , found the real problem, and maybe even the solution, but the solution may take time and/or money.

Here is my problem sometimes, not always. An event may be held that will be a stepping stone, maybe the beginning of solving the problem, but does not solve it, but is so exciting, that it seems to fulfill something in me, and I back off a little, and the work has just begun.

a quote from Dr. Kenneth Cooper

“Our charge on this Earth is to serve Christ and our fellow man, to excercise our gifts and talents to the maximum – and to care for all the assets God has given us, including our bodies” Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper

We spoke for almost 1/2 hour and he signed my book. I enjoyed the time.

a Bible verse

“Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.” Proverbs 4: 25-26

the number one killer in America

The estimates are between 700,000 and 900,000 per year that lose their lives to heart disease. Those figures are for America alone, and are for one year . The Articles mention that most of these folks are obese. Is also mentioned that the problem is worsening every year.

I was obese for probably around 20 years myself. I can’t figure out why I did that and let that stand. The reason I changed it was fear of going back in the Intensive Care Unit again.

I think those figures come out to anywhere between 2000 and 2500 people every single day dying from heart disease.
