Good morning Mintdom!
I work up feeling under the weather this morning. I am not even going to Toastmasters. I hope I can make it to work. Anyway, today’s Mintdom will be short. I know my steps were low, but I DID make it to the pool. I suffered all night because my muscles ached. I feel good about that.

I would not call waking up feeling sick is adversity, but perhaps I am getting a little shine today!
I cannot let this post go by without wishing my son, Michael a VERY Happy Birthday! What a special day THAT was! We moved to Upper Marlboro a month before you were born. It was a real fixer upper, but it was our house. Kelly came into the world during a hurricane, but you came home with an old fixer upper piano and a black lab puppy that we named Mr. Hoxie after our old landlord. Mr. Hoxie did not stay as long as you did though, as your Dad got tired of sleeping in the basement with the puppy to keep him from barking! LOL! Oh my Gosh, you were so cute! When you were one-year-old, people, even men would stop me on the street – well… not JUST, because you were so cute, but because your hair stood straight up, and they were giving me advise on how to tame it! LOL!!
It is hard to believe that you are 32 years old today. What an awesome young man you are! You are very smart, nice, fun and you have the best timing of anyone that I know of when it comes to telling a joke or a story. You are charming and witty, and I love how nice you are to your nieces and nephews, or with any little kids. They all adore you! You are a very hard worker, and a GREAT salesperson. Your company is fortunate to have you. I also love that you are usually the first person that I hear from when I miss a day of Mintdom. I like that you read it every day. I am so proud of you, Michael. You are the BEST son that I have!
Happy Birthday, Michael, I love you. xoxoxoxo
It is back to bed I go for a couple of hours. I hope to feel better when I wake up.
AffirMINTion: I embrace each day, and each challenge enthusiastically!
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
Life is good!Under
