Still involved with West Suburban Toastmasters...(www.toastmasters.org) in La Grange Park.

I'd love to speak to any size group of people who would be interested in my topics: Toastmasters, customer service, personal and spiritual growth, goal setting and creating your reality and especially... A Course in Miracles.

I was just about to submit my final exams to become a certified Life Coach and Reiki Master when my school closed!

Other interests include reading, writing, country music and crochet.

I am recuperating from a central lumpectomy. Just learned my cancer is stage 2. I have radiation and drugs ahead of me and, possibly, chemo. My tumor is being sent on an airplane to California to test its 21 genes. I will be in a clinical trial (depending on the number of genes that test positive). Depending on that number, I may or may not go through chemo.

I enter this information last, because it's the last thing on which I try to focus. I attempt to do what I can in each moment and enjoy life.

I have lost weight through Spark People, learned that EXERCISE MAKES ME FEEL GOOD and made many friends! I sincerely hope you will have a similar experience here.

Spark On folks! Hugs to all...

Got sent a quote I'm going to try to live by:
"If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought."

~Peace Pilgrim

Read her biography. She was amazing!


My Program:
I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent Him who sent me.
I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do, because He who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever He wishes, knowing
He goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.

- A Course in Miracles - Textbook Chapter 2, Part V, verse 18

New fav quote from Mike Dooley: Thoughts become things...choose the good ones.

Personal Information:
I was laid off by the State of Illinois but was called back to work in a public aid office in a gun and gang infested neighborhood at the beginninf of Sep. I reside in Chicago, have 4 grown kids, 4 kids-in-law (not counting partner's kids and their spouses) and 8 grandchildrenwith another on the way! You can also see Suz holding her first grandchild...my step-grand daughter.

I'm in a same sex relationship now for 11 1/2 years. A Course in Miracles has made me realize that Love knows no bounds.

Other Information:
I used to read constantly on personal/spiritual growth. Now I find A Course in Miracles is all I need.

I have one book published. Here is an original quote:

"The answer to 'Where is God?' lies deep within each of us, Therein lies the irony, for where the answer resides, there its subject dwells."

I do still read the occasional best seller, historical fiction (my daughter got me into Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series...time travel historical romance!) and lez fiction.

With SP, I am making my ILLUSIONARY body better. The reality is my Spirit in Heaven.

One Spirit, One Mind, One Life, One God, One Love - One

Thanks for the encouraging comment on my blog (To Du or Not To Du)! My toe is feeling better; I'm going to take a few more days off from running and then see how it goes! If it feels normal by the end of June I'll probably DU it! :). If not, I might get a relay team together; two friends could do the running portions and I could do the biking part. :)

Thanks for the encouraging comment on my activity feed! I love the "one higher calorie day" approach. I generally try to follow that . . . it's just lately I've been having 2 or 3 higher calorie days a week! :-) I think I need to do two things: 1) make sure I get 8 hours of sleep each night and 2) remind myself how much better I feel over time when I eat moderately instead of too indulgently.
