Fitness Minutes: 2,434

My Goals:
My main goal is to be healthy in body and spirit so that I can live the right kind of life.

My Program:
I'm looking for inspiration on everybody's SparkPage. It's fun and educational and takes my mind off food! I really love reading other people's stories.

Personal Information:
I'm from a tiny town in Georgia (with no traffic lights), but now I live in Kobe, Japan. I'm married to a Japanese and have three bilingual, bicultural children--a son, 26, a daughter, 24, and a daughter, 19. I teach English to Japanese company workers, 99% of whom are men. I like my job.

Other Information:
I love reading. One of my favorite books is Fred Chappell's novel "Brighten the Corner Where You Are." And if I could state my philosophy, the title of that book would be IT!

Grrrr...my comment got deleted I think??? If it shows up twice just ignore it...

Anyway, I said that I miss talking to you and I know it's been a long time and I've been MIA but I'm back and one of my goals actually is to journal for 30 days so you should be hearing lots more from me! :)

I hope things are going fabulously in your world!

*hugs*

I have been to St Louis and the arch, too - just can't remember when! Distinctly remember walking inside the top with my friends - have this vague idea it must have been when I was stationed @ Ft. Leonardwood, as it was the only time I was there besides traveling thru. I, too, have memory gaps - scary, isn't it?

She would be 84 if she were here right now. I wish she could still be here, but sometimes it works out that way. emoticon

I am so glad you loved my Putting Food On The Table blog! It really means a lot. Well, I am so glad that you got to spend some time on a working farm when you were younger. That is so cool! That would make a great topic for a blog. I would love to read it! Sometimes those friends of yours there probably wished they had your life, so it would be less busy. Reading novels is so much fun! And watching TV. I watched so much TV growing up, I could probably give you the plot of hundreds of shows if you let me watch the first 5 minutes. They're memorable!

I think it'd be neat to live on a farm too, but I would want it to be a vegetarian one. I really would be heartbroken whenever any of the animals had to go. I would feel a connection even if you just told me about one being on the farm and I never got to see it. I really love animals that much.

My grandma is no longer with us, but I think she would really love being in the blogs. Reading was one of her favorite things of all to do! Every winter, they would get snowed in, and they would read a ton of books! It's good to write about her, because it shows me how much she really gave me. She still lives inside me, and I will always be grateful for having met her. emoticon
