Hi! I'm a 57 yo Granny to 7 children.
I went to California State University Chico and followed the BA up with Student Teaching just to end up with Fibromyalgia. That was in the early 90s.
My health quickly went downhill and when I took my dearest granddaughter to the doctor with me, when she was 2, my doctor was so excited he bought the nurse and other clinic doctors in and told them, "Look at this little girl. If she had not been born this woman would have been dead by now!" I was totally unaware that I was so sick he thought I was dying.
When my daughter was pregnant, I had to go for walks with her. She wouldn't push me in a wheel chair either! We'd go "window shopping" at Wal-Mart and a large Safeway store in the middle of the night. By the time Angel was born, I was able to walk around the store much more easily. When she was born, no one could burp her but me. At that time I could barely lift a gallon of milk. As she grew, I grew stronger. I am alive today because she was born!
In recent years to add to my Fibro, I've been blessed with Diastolic Heart Failure, and enlarged heart, both high cholesterol and bp, arthritis, asthma, all types of insomnia and more. I just had my gall bladder removed Dec 20, 2007 and am now feeling human for the first time in months.
In March 2008, I could barely talk without pain and breathing problems. I began to go to church and our dear Pastor gave me a challenge. If I could make it to each main service and practice for 3 weeks without missing, I could be on the Praise Team. God has used this to heal me. As of my June aptmt with Cardiologist, my heart is much better. In Aug. it was so much better that planned testing was unneeded. Since May, (or before) I've been on the Praise Team at church and am getting stronger and stronger. I finally have a life again. I'm living to live instead of living to die!
My husband volunteers at the local senior center and we get most of our meals there. He's on the board at church, is head usher, and sound man..
I'm a very social person and Love meeting and talking to people.
If I can help you, send me a spark mail.
I want to lose weight and inturn, this should help my health and give me energy.
To be used of God in any way He wants to use me.
To continue to watch my diet, and eat healthier.
To start getting up and around more. This would begin with being less sedentary and working up to a reasonable exercise routine which would include walks with my husband. Things that I haven't been able to do for some time.
I am located in Marysville, CA. It is in Northern CA about 35 miles north of the Sacramento Region.
my email is Caroline_sPlace@yahoo.com If you write, please: 1.Identify yourself in the subject and 2. Be patient for me to write back. I have a backlogg to catch up.
I don't mean to sound like a complainer. That's just my life. By this time next year, I plan to be a new person inside out!
I have 2 story lists. One for kids, mostly cute pictures (Caroline_sKidslistemail@example.com) and a list for adults. The adult list has many uplifting and inspirational thing go through, and half of it tends to be conservative political articles telling us what is going on in the US and what we can do.
I n 2003, I founded Shopper Meetings Network for Mystery Shoppers. Since I've been ill, it's basically run itself. I hope to get back to it and get some shop talk going and provide a place for schedulers to find reliable shoppers, and of course; for shoppers to have the first wack at new jobs!

THE JELLY BEAN PRAYER
Red is for the blood he gave.
Green is for the grass he made.
Yellow is for the sun so bright.
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black is for the sins we made.
White is for the grace he gave.
Purple is for the hour of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
A bag full of jelly beans colorful and sweet
is a prayer, a promise, a loved one’s treat.
May the joy of Christ’s Resurrection fill your heart and bless your life!
Have a super blessed Easter Sunday and may the Easter bunny take all the calories out of your treats leaving you only the healthiest ones!!!

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
May you have a very Happy Thanksgiving. I will be counting your friendship among my many blessings. Thank you for being my friend.
Blessings and hugs,

I am sorry it has been a few weeks but LIFE sometimes throws us curves we can't help. I hope everyone is well. I have had my own ups and downs the last few weeks and I have probably gained some weight back. So I can relate to anyone having a challenge right now. Here's hoping May brings us SUNSHINE and better motivation if you are lacking right now.

The Five Balls
Imagine Life is a game in which you are juggling 5 balls.
The balls are called WORK! FAMILY! HEALTH! FRIENDS! and INTEGRITY!
And you are keeping all of them in the air!
But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball
If you drop it, it will bounce back.
The other four balls----FAMILY, HEALTH, FRIENDS and INTEGRITY---are made of glass
If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked perhaps even shattered.
So once you understand the lesson in the five balls,
You will have the beginning of balance in your life.
