Getting on Track

I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health ...

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."

I have several circles of friends: my church family, always the first friends wherever we move, my friends at the Bernina store where I used to work, my chorus friends (the source of the gold medal), my herb club and gardening friends, and the walking club that started me walking some 15 years ago. I talk about Spark People to all of them.

For Christmas

May you have joy
in the mad rush
of preparation;

May you know peace
in the tiny margins
of time around
the busy days;

May you have star-shine
in clear night skies
for looking at;

May you have silence
now and then;

and, above all –

beyond all else –

May you have love
to give
and to receive.

(Elizabeth Searle Lamb)

Merry Christmas!

Recipe for a Merry Christmas

To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
Pour love over all in generous measure,
And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

~ Barbara Burrow ~
