I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 65 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (48 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little Darling.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    I was actually concerned until a neighbor stopped a month ago and told Ray & I that the best thing that happened to him was high blood pressure! He said he's feeling so much better now.

    So I thought of that when I was unable to get it under control on my own and I started the pills. It dropped 23 points by the next day! and another 18 the day after with another 10 today. Yes, I am logging it so I will know if it goes too low - then I would call the doctor.

    Thank you for being in my corner! I appreciate you!

    Not sure you told me about the tea & cookies - but it ties with what I was told.

    Give him what he wants.

    Thank you for the positive feedback! I need it a lot.

    Huggers,
    love,
