Adrenaline Junkie -- Mon., Dec. 24

Roller coasters--what I do for excitement and adventure (when I'm not traveling, hiking, walking, going to museums, caves or gardens).

On Facebook, one of our friends mentioned going to an amusement park. I happened to mention I LOVE roller coasters. She asked about my favorites. Here they are:  
So many roller coasters, so little time. For my next batch of roller coaster rides, I want to go to Florida's Universal Studios and ride all the great new coasters they put in over the past ten years. I really should join ACE (American Coaster Enthusiasts)!

Happy Birthday, Bob!

Fifty-seven years ago Bob saw the light of day for the first time. He's been lighting up my life for the last 30 years. When you meet him you'll see what I mean. He's outgoing, a history buff, loves sports and enjoys his work. He has done over 30 marathons which he started doing at age 50. Most recently, he completed the Honolulu Marathon on Dec. 9, 2012. 

Maui Oceanfront Marathon, 2009

We love hiking to waterfalls and never forget to give each other a kiss at each waterfall we hike to. For us, life is an adventure. Thank you, Bob, for being you. You help bring me out of my shell. I love you.

The following came from today's Wisdom News by Lissa Coffey. As soon as I saw it, I thought of Bob...
"The well-developed, well-integrated personality is the highest product of evolution, the fullest realization we know of in the universe."
                                                                      -Julian Huxley (1887-1975)

All of our life is spent learning who we are, becoming more of who we really are. When we can truly relax, and be comfortable with the knowledge of our self, our radiant personality shows through. We know how we fit in the scheme of things. We recognize our connection to the universe. We appreciate the roles we have to play and understand that we are the ones writing our script.
