Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have Mercy on us!
Grant me a sense of humor, Lord,
The saving grace to see a joke,
To win some happiness from life,
And pass it on to other folk.
~Irish Blessing~
Heaven rejoices when ONE sinner repents, All of Hell rejoices when one Christian falls.

Every Night

Every night I pray to God that I will wake up the next day with...
a big smile on my face...
warm love in my heart...
happiness on my thoughts
wisdom on my mind
great courage in my soul
a strong faith in my spirit...
good deeds in my actions
good friends to meet on my way
and most of all.....
God's loving guidance and care
that will see me through the day.

Welcome to my page. I am 54, married with 3 kids and two Grandsons. Two of my kids are adults and have moved away long ago. I have an 16 yr old daughter at home and and I would love to have more energy to do things together with her. Weight has always been a problem for me but never as bad as it now. I had my last child at 38 and I put on a lot of weight and have kept putting it on ever since. Now I really have to try to get rid of it. I want to be healthy and have more energy. I joined spark people years ago but have been away for quite a long time. Now I'm ready to start over again.

    It's hard to get back in the habit of getting on SP but I'm trying.

    P.S. You might like the squash. I think I messed up the whole roasted veggie recipe. Sad. I mean, how hard is it to roast veggies? The spices got away from me. emoticon

    What's up, JF? I started volunteering at the library this week. It's been fun. I usually go in for a couple of hours and straighten up and help people find books. The atmosphere is SO different from what I'm used to. Way less stress, and the ladies are all very nice. I'm very hopeful that this will lead to a part-time paid position and soon!

    Mom saw the foot doctor today. Her healing is going extremely well. Dr. took out the stitches and says one more week in the wheelchair and she can go back to walking. She can shower now without wearing the rubber boot to keep her foot dry. Very exciting.

    I'm so busy lately! I dragged out my old keyboard and have been practicing a little so I can play for the inmates (that's what my mom calls them) at the assisted living center where she lives. Some regular stuff, and soon some Christmas tunes.

    I'm looking at a crochet project (blanket) and have crocheted a swatch to see if my gauge is correct. Looks good, and I think I understand the pattern. All that's left is to buy the yarn.

    I'm also thinking about writing again. Years ago I took a correspondence course and loved it. And did sell an article to a magazine. I would love to get into that again.

    And of course I'm reading. Right now I'm reading Relentless by Dean Koontz. I can hardly put it down.

    I'm off soon to Adoration. I'll say some prayers for you. Congrats on not gaining any weight! I only hope that's the worst that happens to me this week. emoticon
