Brady Rusk, 12, hugs Eli at a retirement and adoption ceremony at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. The bomb-sniffing Labrador retriever was assigned to Brady's older brother, Marine Pfc. Colton Rusk, 20, who was killed in action in Afghanistan by Taliban sniper fire Dec. 5. The Department of Defense granted the Rusk's permission to adopt Eli and allow him to join their family.
My heart has been wrong one too many times, whether it is foolish is unknown. A lesson learned the hard way for certain.
If you could paint your picture, where would you be today? I can vision myself being in Italy, rolling hills, grass is green, row after row of grape vines. Air is just right, warmth of the sun shining down on me. People waving as they pass by. Getting closer to the city, I see tall ancient structures, absolutely beautiful, so i explore even further. In awe over the detailed stones, the massive height of the structures. Breath taking!
30 days ago I began a journey that has taken me farther into myself then I knew I could go. Today it ends, and I would like to take you inside my journey and share with you how it has changed my diet, my health, and my spirit.

It began with the usual hustle and bustle as I try to drink down my coffee. I received an amazing call from a little elderly lady thanking me, still not completely awake, it took me a couple of minutes to understand what exactly she was talking about. Three weeks ago I had stopped at this little ladies house that I have been driving by for the last twelve years, always admiring her beautiful flowers. I knocked on her door and asked if I could take some photographs of her flower garden, so to make a long story short, I submitted the photographs to the news paper, along with a story and it was in today’s paper. Yes, it put a smile on my face, but only because I made a little lady extremely happy. And for her to call me made it heart warming.
