Personal Information:
Currently live in Crystal Lake, IL with two remaining cats; we lost Tommy 2/8/14. Work p-t & volunteer at local library.
Until 2002 was vegetarian for 15 years; during & since Alaskan cruise I've added occasional fish. Beautiful daughter now currently in Telluride, CO & my loving son in Portland, OR.

Other Information:
Reading is my favorite pastime: novels, murder mysteries, biographies, The Spark....almost anything.
I'm working p-t, volunteering at library, hanging out with other friends (sounds like a teenager) doing fun activities: dinner/movie, concerts, Bingo, etc; would love to get back to playing ping pong.
I LOVE to cook--mostly vegetarian meals; & earned my Baker's Asst. Certificate in 2010, as I've ALWAYS loved to bake as well.

Out silver ITC this week is to reach and support each other. I am sharing this favorite quote of mine, I hope it inspires you:

“An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.” Goi Nasu

I wish you only the best,
Belinda

"Life challenges our ability to accept, to forgive, to love, and to overcome. WE can either face these challenges with grace and positivity, or relinquish our power and welcome defeat. The CHOICE is OURS." Mrs. M

Hope you can find the spark to keep pushing- keep fighting- keep accepting- and keep embracing JOY in your life this week.

We are in this together. emoticon
