"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

Since joining SparkPeople, I have become slimmer and healthier -- in spite of major surgery in January 2010. I am able to do much more than before and feel better.

I am the mother of 6 gifts from God, 3 boys -- Jason, Richard and Bryan --and 3 girls -- Kristen, Catherine, and Jessica. One of my sons is presently in the military (Air Force), one got out of the Navy and went to graduate school and got his Master's degree in biology and is now here in WA state deconstructing a ship, and the third has finished his college course work to become a psychologist. He is now an officer in the Army. My oldest daughter is a paralegal, my second daughter is an R.N., and the youngest is employed by the DOL.

I have eight grandchildren, a girl Paige and a boy Isaac, an adorable boy named Keith Bryan, a grandson named Dylan, a grandson named Trent, a girl Isabella Noelle, then Brady, and an infant named Eric.

I also am the crazy cat and dog lady. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs.

God is my rock and my strength.

    Sounds Like you got some rain !! Thanks for commenting on my activity feed...I had to take a pain pill this evening, and it helped. But now I'm wide awake, I did take a snooze this afternoon since I was up at 4am with pain..I start my Physical Therapy tomorrow in the morning...I sure am glad to get it going so I will be on the mend. Hope all is going well with you. Have a wonderful Thursday. Hugs Lesley emoticon
