I started SparkPeople three years ago (according to recent e-mail messages), and was doing well until I met with some Life Challenges. I am a 62 year old Missouri nurse, and a Unitarian-Universalist Witch. Life is returning to a normal level of stress, so here I am again. As a Witch, I believe that I can do anything that I Will. I am wanting to reaccess this part of my self, for my spiritual well-being as well as for my physical health.
