Employed with the State of Illinois, recently promoted and transferred to a location just a couple miles from home.

I am a mother of 4 perfect adult children, in part thanks to my dear ex-husband, and grandma to 12 with one on the way!

Employed with the State of Illinois, recently promoted and transferred to a location just a couple miles from home.

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

Good morning Maggie, no grocery shopping is not on the tracker but you can add it. I do all the time onthe start page and I use the quick tracker. It does not give calories burned but it still counts your activity.

Enjoy your Monday !!
