:-)SHINE'S JOURNEY TO HEALTH: BODY AND SOUL

Hi, my name is Ruth. I am a Maritimer by birth (born in Halifax, NS but grew up in Riverview, NB) and a Westerner (Victoria,BC) by life journey.

Hi, my name is Ruth. I am a Maritimer by birth (born in Halifax, NS but grew up in Riverview, NB) and a Westerner (Victoria,BC) by life journey. I am married to Bruce and we have three pretty much grown up kids - Christa, Jesse, and Andrew. We also have two dogs, Ginger and Daisy and two cats, Peppurr and Hidee and a few fish aquariums. I work as a chaplain and coordinator of volunteers in a seniors care facility.

A number of big events took place this year:
1) my husband was diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer and he is doing well now;
2) my mother completed her 41/2 year journey with dementia.
3) our daughter was married and we now have a son-in-law.

With all this, I just jumped on our weight scale and I now weigh more than I have in a long, long time so have decided it is time to get back on track with SparkPeople.

My goals are two-fold: I'm looking to ways to get healthier in body and spirit.

Hi Ruth, so sorry about long time in coming to tell you how glad I am that you joined Children of Parents with Dementia. I know it's a hard thing to deal with. My daddy had it and I know some times the best thing is to have someone to talk with that knows what you are facing. We know and want to bne there for you. God bless, Ginny (co leader Children of Parents with Dementia)
