Blessed with another beautiful day!

Trying to balance some health issues with the responsibility of looking out for others can be a challenge. I try to meet those challenges each day in a positive way.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live in a small town not far from the greater Atlanta area.

In June of 2012 I retired from teaching, a career that I embarked upon in 1972. During those 40 years I taught full time for 26 years and was a stay at home mom for 14 years.

I did not start any type of exercise program until I hit some roadblocks in my 60s. I am not proud of that, but I am proof that it is NEVER too late to start taking care of yourself.


Other Information:
I love to spend time with my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters
(ages 9 and 11) who live in the Atlanta area.

DH and I spend lots of time with my parents
( ages 87 and 90) who live 10 minutes away. They are needing more and more of our time & attention.

I love the tranquility of nature. Gardening and feeding the birds are my daily indulgences.

I love coffee, and I love chocolate.

I now love exercise (amazing, but true). I didn't begin any form of exercise program until I was in my 60s, following a serious accident. What a difference today!

Thanks for the goodie. The magnesium seems to work better if I take it every night. It took about a week for me to start noticing the difference.

Hi Evelyn, Thank you so much for reading the tribute I wrote for my Mother and aunt. Yes, they were two incredible women and after their passing, I learned things that I never knew that explained their strength and their love of life. They have left a huge void in my life, but a very warm space in my heart. emoticon

Q: What's the traditional way to celebrate? [Thanksgiving]

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. ŚErma Bombeck

What is your traditional way to celebrate?

cheers,
barbara

When I was growing up, both my mom and dad were very crafty. I'm not nearly as talented at it as they are, but I love to do it nonetheless.

Hope you're having a lovely Saturday!
