2012....Changes are a-comin'!

Well, another year has come and gone.

About me: I'm a stay at home mom of two girls, and I substitute teach at their schools. I'm 40. I've been over-weight since before I got married in my mid-20's. I lost down to 145, but I've gained back up to 170 plus (depends on the day). BUT... This is the year of NO EXCUSES. I've got to get back to exercising and get this weight off!

Well, another year has come and gone.

About me: I'm a stay at home mom of two girls, and I substitute teach at their schools. I'm 40. I've been over-weight since before I got married in my mid-20's. I lost down to 145, but I've gained back up to 170 plus (depends on the day). BUT... This is the year of NO EXCUSES. I've got to get back to exercising and get this weight off!

Until recently, I cared for my grandmother in my home. She has Alzheimer's and has heart troubles. She kept falling, and I was afraid that she would get hurt worse than a few bruises. I chose a nursing home that was close to the school so I could check on her every day. However, after she had to go to a special facility to get her meds under control, my uncle moved her without my knowledge to a home an hour away. Now, I cannot afford to go see her like I want to. More importantly, my little one (who was only 2 when Gran moved in with us) is missing her terribly and cries knowing that she cannot see her every day. Please pray for us as we deal with this loss.

On a better note: I'm an Independent Consultant for a national beauty product company. I am looking forward to having more time to spend on the business. I'd love to share the products and ideas with you. So PM me if you'd like to know more.

You post a message on my blog about my gall bladder surgery and said you have twinges of pain now. I am having those already and my surgeon said they are caused by scar tissue and cant be fixed.

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday!
Enjoy the day and relish in all the love around you!

Always remember to take time to enjoy what the Lord has provided for us , the Sun, gives us plenty of warmth, plus natural vitamin D "Sunlight is life.".

The birds reminds us there should always be a song in our hearts,

The beautiful flowers remind us we should always face the world with a smile every day,

The trees remind us to stand tall no matter what obstacles we face in life.

The World is round and the beauty of the sky is seen from every corner of the continent, reminding us we are surrounded in Love no matter where we may be!

Raise your voice my friend and Praise God for all Your Blessings.

I did and especially for having you as my special Friend!

God Bless You and know I love you!
