Blessed with another beautiful day!

Trying to balance some health issues with the responsibility of looking out for others can be a challenge. I try to meet those challenges each day in a positive way.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live in a small town not far from the greater Atlanta area.

In June of 2012 I retired from teaching, a career that I embarked upon in 1972. During those 40 years I taught full time for 26 years and was a stay at home mom for 14 years.

I did not start any type of exercise program until I hit some roadblocks in my 60s. I am not proud of that, but I am proof that it is NEVER too late to start taking care of yourself.


Other Information:
I love to spend time with my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters
(ages 9 and 11) who live in the Atlanta area.

DH and I spend lots of time with my parents
( ages 87 and 90) who live 10 minutes away. They are needing more and more of our time & attention.

I love the tranquility of nature. Gardening and feeding the birds are my daily indulgences.

I love coffee, and I love chocolate.

I now love exercise (amazing, but true).

Your journey has molded you for your greater good,
and it was exactly what it needed to be.
Don't think that you've lost time.
It took each and every situation you have encountered
to bring you to the present.
And the present is now---the right time

Keep that motivational mojo on high and eat healthy, my friend!
