21 Day Challenge

20th day
Do Better....
I want to do better for myself and for my family. One of my goals for this year is to finish what I start, no matter how hard it is. I want to thank you for your prayers. It helps me greatly. I am done!!! I feel like I really accomplished something big.
I tried to e-mail Rhonna to tell her I was going to finish the Challenge the other day, but my e-mail did not go through for some reason. But this Challenge has really helped me in so many ways. I have thought about my goals everyday. I have went to church for the last 3 weeks. I have cut back on the junk food and I have exercised everyday. I have worked on all the other goals daily. I carried a notebook around and copied quotes I would find , and I made some up myself. And I was really encouraged by Christi and Jeane and several others who are participating whose work is so amazing. They pushed me on just by their creativity. I was determined to finish after seeing their work.( For all those who have not visited today there is a whole bunch of posts all the way to the next page .) ~Nita`

Thanks for your kind words Nita. This quote is so amazing...I am adding it to my quote book. I also carry around a book with me to record any quotes I hear or read. I find them to be so inspirational. You have done such a great job on this challenge and your comments on my blog have truly kept me going on my challenge as well. WE DID IT! Yay!! And we made some nice friends along the way - I think that is the best part of all!!!
