Welcome to my page! I'm Bonnie and I,v been on spark people for a few years but re-writing this as I feel a new Chapter is here! I love my Life here in Northern Michigan! it is so Beautiful Hilly and peaceful! It is a Blessing that I can live here and be among the wildlife and watch them every day! After losing almost all my Close relatives I came to a stand still four yrs a go! I had choices to make! I would wallow in Tears and be in a depressed state or I could do what my Brother said one time and and that was when I'm gone.. he said I want you to spread your wings and fly and do what you love and theres not a day that goes by I don't feel his presence here in the Woods! My life had been good and ive learned to enjoy friends and my surroundings and to always Thank GOD and give back to others when I can! Feeling motivated again and want to be the image I see in my mind of me and that is a Healthier thinner me and that is my goal this year !! Ive faltered many times but I have never given up and never will!

    Most of our problems are because of two reasons:
    We act without thinking or we keep thinking without acting.

    Life is good when we think its good.
    Life is bad when we don't think.
