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, was a beautiful life."~ ~ Doe Zantamata ~ ~

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Giving of An Apple emoticon emoticon emoticon

    A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
    Her Mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile:
    “Sweetie, could you give your Mom one of your two apples?”
    The girl looked up at her Mom for some seconds,
    then she suddenly took a quick bite of one apple, and then quickly of the other.
    The Mom felt the smile on her face freeze.
    She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
    Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her Mom, and said:
    "Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one."
