Happy Fourth of July!

Hi my name is Risa...I've been on and off here on Sparkpeople since 2007...formally under the name "Sunflowerisa"... for my love of sunflowers and how it inspires me....you know, how it's always reaching up towards the sun.

I had a stroke in February '14 and I'm still recovering. It affected my short-term memory...but it has gotten much, much better.

Recently diagnosed as Pre-Diabetic.... I'm not Diabetic ... but I'm really close! I need to keep an eye on my sugar ...

Recently diagnosed as Pre-Diabetic.... I'm not Diabetic ... but I'm really close! I need to keep an eye on my sugar level and keep it under control by diet and exercise.

I'm starting back slow but steady...my goal is to be living, feeling healthy and good! I'm here back on Sparkpeople for good!

I am now ready for a healthy and happier life - so my new sparkname is "Readyrisa".

2015 is my zodiac year - year of the sheep..which is cool and I am happy about ...Whoo-hoo!

If you're helping someone and expecting something in return, you're doing business not kindness.
~~~Jonathan Kitavi~~~
NOT everyone will appreciate what you do for them...YOU have to figure out who's worth your kindness AND who's just taking advantage....
~~~Unknown
Always be sure to show compassion and kindness to strangers..for you never know when you may be in the company of an angel...angels don't always have wings.
~~~Nishan Panwar~~~
Being kind to someone, only to look kind to others, defeats the purpose of being kind.
