    Thought for the week:  There will always be people in life who treat you wrong. Be sure you thank them for making you strong.

    I hope everyone had a great Mothers Day. We went to Hodgenville Grill for lunch then came home and spent the afternoon on the front porch and enjoyed the beautiful weather as I worked in a new flowerbed. Birthday banners are set to be ready for my birthday on the 19th.

    I can’t believe that it is graduation time again, which happens on my birthday this year. Where did the year go?

    In 2015, the U.S. Surgeon General issued a “Call to Action” to encourage Americans of all ages and abilities to walk more. This call was also to inspire communities to create safe and accessible places for people of all abilities to travel.

    Walking is a great way to incorporate physical activity and movement into your daily routine. Walking does not require expensive equipment, a gym membership or special instruction/skill.
