I am turning 60 in August, but I am NOT slowing down!

I am a principal of a large school for children of military members, mother, and grandmother to seven funny, smart and brilliant grandkids. Recently, my husband went home to Jesus, and I am adjusting to being a widow. I loved being a wife, and this has been hard on me.

I love walking and biking all over Germany, and the surrounding countries. I love to travel, and am blessed to be able to do it at this season of my life. Another passion I have is baking for my co-workers and ...
I am a principal of a large school for children of military members, mother, and grandmother to seven funny, smart and brilliant grandkids. Recently, my husband went home to Jesus, and I am adjusting to being a widow. I loved being a wife, and this has been hard on me.

I love walking and biking all over Germany, and the surrounding countries. I love to travel, and am blessed to be able to do it at this season of my life. Another passion I have is baking for my co-workers and friends.

My God continues to be my source of strength, peace and everlasting joy. He is my gracious, redeemer, my friend and my enduring, wise counselor. Without Him I am nothing. He gives me purpose to my life. I am a SOLD out, unashamed conservative Christian called to work in a school setting.

I am excited about what God has planned for me, and thankful that He loves me so much.

“Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don't just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won't happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you'll love it up here.”
― Donald Trump

emoticon it has been a while since I have been active on SP but....I'm baaaaacccckkk!!!! I was derailed by injuries, then health issues, then life.
It is a new day and a new season. I lost ground, but not wisdom or knowledge. I know what works and I am going to work it. Checking in to see who is on hiatus and who is active....Praying that all is well on your world.... emoticon

I have learned I cannot do it all at once. But I can do at least one thing every day to make an effort to be healthy.

Continue to make small efforts every day and it will all add up to success! Together we can do this!!!
