Oprah says: Be passionate about who you are

I feel like Caroline's trying to get to the other side of a decision!
I have to make a decision.
Now is the time - Spring is here and parents are starting to plan swimming lessons for their kids.  I have to decide what I'm going to do with my Learn to Swim with Miss Bea dvd.  I heartily believe in the purpose and need for my swim dvd.  I published it 5 years ago and many parents and children have benefited from it.  Since I quit teaching swimming 3 years ago, I have been selling it on my website and on amazon.  I want to promote it in new and better ways and am ready to invest some money and effort.  I started a facebook page but have not done much with it and I need 20 likes in order to get to the next step.  You could help me out right now with that and write a comment!

I know that I must do all that is required.   I am reading and studying what I have to do and know that it will be work and I'm not sure that I want to work...  but I want to do it for God's glory. 

Oprah said:  "When you're passionate about who you are, it brings honor to God."  ... "That's when God will breathe in your direction and the seeds of greatness in you will take root and begin to flourish."
I guess that now that I am retired it is a matter of recreating the passion that I had so that the greatness can have a chance to flourish again.  If I want to...
Memories of swimming lessons - the video stars!

I have been doing some small projects.  I just finished changing all my VHS videos (family videos and videos of my travels for school and with students) into DVD videos.  I made 36!  Now I want to watch my super 8 videos and see how much to change to DVD's.  
Also, we are going to the condo.
I started pressure-washing the driveway today.  That will take days! 
We have the garden to plant...

Let's always laugh at life!  Watch the video of baby Durham laughing and enjoy!
