Working to live IN each day! It is way too easy for me to allow a day to disappear into busyness without taking any time to savor life.

I've lost weight with TOPS and SparkPeople but I'm not yet where I need to be. I love the support that I get from my Sparkfriends and teams.

I enjoy the Sparkpeople challenges and am a member of the BLC challenge team Lovely Limes.

My Goals:
Long Term Goal: To be a very healthy, very old woman, surrounded by great-grandchildren and still living independently and enjoying my life. I want to be as healthy as I can be at age "almost seventy". I want to lose weight to a goal my doctor has set for me.


My Program:
Eat Wisely! Live fully in each day! Show Love and Kindness! Trust! Pray!



Personal Information:
I grew up in North Dakota and attended the University of North Dakota for one year. Returned to college when I was 44 and graduated - now that felt good. I live in Ohio now. My husband was stationed here for his last Air Force assignment and we stayed in the area when he retired from the Air Force. I've retired as of January 1, 2011!!. I've met the goal of getting back to quilting finally. Two small projects completed recently. It keeps my hands too busy for food. I also love reading, spending time with friends, and traveling occasionally.


Other Information:
My Mantra - Believe in Miracles. Forgive everyone. Life is not fair, but it is good. My Other Mantra: What doesn't kill you just doesn't kill you! And we all should read this: "If every morning, You can find a reason to say, Yes, it's going to be a beautiful day. And every day, you find a reason to say, Yes, it is a beautiful day. And every night, you find a reason to say, Yes, it was a beautiful day. Then one day, You'll look back and easily say, Yes...it was a beautiful life."~ ~ Doe Zantamata ~ ~

    emoticon emoticon ~~MAKING A DIFFERENCE~~ emoticon emoticon
    One day a man was walking along the beach
    when he noticed a figure in the distance.
    As he got closer, he realized the figure was that of a boy
    picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.

    Approaching the boy, he asked "What are you doing ?".
    The boy replied "throwing a starfish into the ocean.
    The sun is up and the tide is going down. If I don't throw them back, they'll die".

    "Son" the man said "don't you realize
    there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish?
    You can't possibly make a difference?"

    After listening politely, the boy bent down,
    picked up another starfish and threw it into the surf.
    Then, smiling at the man, he said,
    "I made a difference for that one".

    I'll go out there and make my mistakes. I'll fall down,
    get hurt, cry, laugh, love, and get back up.
    I'll stand on the highest mountaintop and go into the deepest caverns.
    I'll roam across the world, visit the moon and swim in outer space.
    I'll let my imagination run wild and let my spirit soar.
    Why?
    Because when my life flashes before my eyes in those final moments,
    I want to have something worthwhile to watch, with plenty of love and laughter,
    good times and bad. I don't want to regret a thing and I plan not to.
    Remember, it's not usually the things you do that you regret,
    it's the things you don't do and leave unsaid. Laugh out loud.
    Cry in the rain. Love with all your heart and soul. Get hurt.
    Tell the truth. Go crazy. But never forget that you only get one shot.
    One shot at this day, one shot at this minute.
    One shot at this age. One shot at life.
    So make sure your life is one you will enjoy watching in your final moments.

    Everyone says love hurts, but that isn't true.
    Loneliness hurts.
    Rejection hurts.
    Losing someone hurts.
    Envy hurts.
    Everyone gets these things confused with love,
    but in reality love is the only thing
    in this world that covers up all the pain
    and makes someone feel wonderful again.
    Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.

Tim was drinking at the time. any way he gave tim a pass. so I told lisa. she started to laugh and laugh as she was saying . I know him (scott) he thinks he is going to Die . I started to laugh and couldn't stop. Tim is my son ! emoticon
