retired & lovin it!

I am a retired teacher--taught 1st graders for 35 years. Am now very involved in volunteer projects, mostly throught my church. I love to travel and cruise. Am married (45 years) and have 1 son and 2 grandsons.

September, 2009
I've decided it's time to start over! I am determined to do better and to be successful!
I do get in regular exercise at Curves but I've not been very good with the diet! BUT, I'm not going on a diet, I'm going to work on life changes ...

June 2014
My life has changed drastically since losing Chuck in January. I am learning I can do things I never thought I could do--like mowing the lawn! Chuck was the one who loved to work outside and I enjoyed what he planted! This year I took the easy way out--I planted artificial flowers! They bloom all year and I never have to worry about watering them!
October 2014
I'm approaching 9 months of being alone. I don't like it but I'm keeping busy. I have gotten back to Curves and I have lost 25 pounds. I WILL SURVIVE!

~~~~~I am """WONDER WOMAN"""~~~~~

~~I wonder where I left my keys,
~~~I wonder how I put on weight,
~~~~I wonder where my money went,
~~~~~I wonder where I put my phone.
~~~~~~I often "wonder" why I "wonder".

Thank you for sharing your fruits. That is one thing I don't get enough of. Veggies I'm pretty good with.

I had sent this quite awhile ago, but I felt it was worthy enough to send it again. Hope you enjoy it!!

*****************TRAIN OF LIFE***********************

Some folks ride the train of life, Looking out the rear.
Watching miles of life roll by, And marking every year.
They sit in sad remembrance, Of wasted days gone by.
And curse their life for what it was, And hang their head and cry.

But I don't concern myself with that, I took a different vent.
I look forward to what life holds, And not what has been spent.
So strap me to the engine, As securely as can be.
I want to be out on the front, To see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change, Blowing in my face.
I want to see what life unfolds, As I move from place to place.
I want to see whats coming up. No looking at the past.
Life's too short for yesterday, It moves along too fast.

So if the ride gets bumpy, While you are looking back.
Go up front, and you may find, Your life has jumped the track.
Its all right to remember, That's part of history.
But up front's where its happening. There's so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living, Is not where we have been,
It's looking ever forward, To another year and ten.
It's searching all the byways, Never should you refrain.
For if you want to live your life, You gotta drive the train.
---Marv Hardin~~~

As I read this, I realized, I cannot live in the past, and I cannot foresee the future,
But I can live for every second, and every minute of today.
""""Enjoy today, and everyday of your life."""""
Barb---(((HUGS)))
