Hello - I turned 62 in January 2015 and I have been married to my husband (Poppy) for over 46 years. We have 4 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 silly little dog named Bingo, and a cat named MilkyWay. Also lots of squirrels, foxes, birds...but all those are in the far! I enjoy the sound of rain on a tin roof, I love thunderstorms and take pictures of lightning. I love walking in the falling snow with hubby. I need to watch my weight which I plan to do by Walking and watching what I eat. With your help I will continue to accomplish this. I love the Lord and love to share his love and grace with others.

Member Since: 4/28/2008

My Goals:
To loss weight and stay on a good healthy exercise program with the Spark Family in mind.

My Program:
I plan to write in a journal what I eat and keep track of a walking program. I love to walk. I used to when I was younger and by doing so I could eat anything. I plan to keep learning as much as possible from Spark family members and how they reach their goals as well.

Personal Information:
I am from the East Tennessee area in the Smoky Mountains (Dolly's Country). I am a retired Editor/Publisher. We also owned a commercial printing company but have recently turned it over to our son. I also have taught many photography classes. My husband and I were missionaries in Kenya, East Africa once and lived on a Coffee Plantation. We have 4 children, one which we adopted when she was 14 from Romania. She is now 39. We have 6 grandchildren: grandson (Jaden) who is 13 years old, grandson (Matthew) 7 years old. Three little gr'girls, 6 year old Emma, 4 year old Lexi Annabell, 4 year old Mili, and a new grandson, 2 month old Tommy. Our children range in age 45, 41, 40, & 39. We have 1 dog. A 4 year old Rat Terrier named Bingo. And a female cat named MilkyWay.

Other Information:
I love to cook, cross-stitch, write short (true stories) of my youth, do crafts and be creative. I love old classical movies, vintage and antique stuff, Old magazines. My favorite movies are, "It's a Wonderful Life", "You Can't Take it With You", "Late For Dinner", & most recently "Miss Potter" and "The Notebook". I love Rain on the roof, a walk in the falling snow at midnight with hubby, dance by the light of the moon and dance under the stars beneath African skies.

    Hello all my SP peeps! I've been missing in action for awhile. I had so much going on in 2012 with family and friends passing away almost every month. The hardest was hubby's mama in February 2012 and my mama on Easter Sunday April 8, 2012. I also lost a niece in March 2012, several close and dear friends passed away in spring, summer and fall so unexpected. Then my precious brother was in the hospital all December with puemonia and is still recovering. My dear brother-in-law who battled cancer so bravely for 8 years passed away in December 2012. I can eagerly say I am trying to put 2012 behind me. I have started back on my walking program after being so sick myself for 2 months (October - through December) with Micro-Plasma infection in my lungs. I am up to 6 miles a day now and hope to keep up the pace all year. God bless all of you and I certainly pray 2013 is a terrific year for you!
