Embracing Imperfection -a story by a girl-
When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite! When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the toast. And I'll never forget what he said. 'Baby, I love burned toast.'
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night, and I asked him if he really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, 'Debbie, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone! You know, life is full of imperfect things...and imperfect people. I'm not the best housekeeper or cook.'
What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's faults - and choosing to celebrate each other's differences - is the one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship. And that's my prayer for you today - that you will learn to take the good, the bad and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of GOD. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where burnt toast isn't a deal-breaker! We could extend this to any relationship in fact - as understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!!"
Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket - but into your own.
See through God's eyes and feel through God's heart, and you will appreciate the value of every soul including yourself.
People will always forget what you do,
and they will always forget what you say,
but they will never, ever forget the way you make them feel!
Track the Port Huron to Mackinac Race With GPS

Check out where to get Low Gas Prices
This is still getting many people to click each week so we are keeping it in. Let us know if you think it is worthwhile.
Regarding the article on drinking water. I’ve found the easiest and least expensive way to get great water is with a home water filter. A good filter system can remove up to 99.9% of contaminants for about 3 cents per gallon.
Keep up the good work!

Dear Peggy Jo,
How does one print just one or two pages of your newsletter?
Good question! The newsletter is designed to viewed on the web and is one file. However, one can use the print preview function that does paginate the file and then when the request to print is made, certain pages can be selected.
If one went to the archived version of the newsletter the same technique could be used with the additional feature that the archived version has some built in functions to break pages more logically.
Dear Peggy Jo,
Channel 4 has nominated Fitness Unlimited as one of the best local businesses in their "2009 4 the Best" contest. (More information here: www.clickondetroit.com/4thebest ) However, we need YOUR votes to WIN!
You can vote one time per e-mail address. You can also leave a review (as long as it's a nice one! :)
