Joel (Dad) and Analei Rae taking a nap
Hello, I'm a 55 year old Wife, Mother and a Nana , I joined Spark People a few years ago and I lost 70 pounds , and need less to say I gained back 40 of those pounds , I'm not happy or proud of myself , but again I need help, so I'm back again . But this time I'm older and now I have bad knees and hips, I still walk but I don't run and I miss that ( running ) But I'm will to try it again .Spark People are kind and forgiving site and I'm thankful for that ,
``````Update`` July 5th 2008
I truly think without SparkPeople I would have continued to gain weigh, and sit around after work and eat.
Now I can honestly say I like my body and I like that I can walk , hike , and run with my family without them having to wait for me to rest.
I'm in my fifty's and I feel I can find peace and happiness with myself.
``````Fire at Sunset Park ``July 10, 2008
Today at 3 p.m there was fire across the street from our house, The Firemen were the with their trucks and hose's to put out the fire, in which they did after several hours, They don't know what started the fire, it was down at the far end of the park in the field, the grass is very dry there,
Now I know how those in other states must feel when there is a fire so close. You can smell the smoke, see it the sky,
My prayers go out to those who are near the fires. May God Bless.
~~~~~Grandma's Gone July 26th,2008
My Grandmother died Saturday at 5:00 p,m, she was 98 years old, her birthday was May 15th ? I went to see her at her house, but I don't think she knew who all was there.
See still looked like my Grandma,When I looked at her I still see all the wonderful things about her, I'll miss her greatly. There's no one like her because she is my Grandma, no matter how old I'm she was still my Grandma and will always be.
So good-bye Grandma for now, I'll always love you.
" A Poem For Grandma"
God Saw That She Was Getting Tired And A Cure Was Not Meant To Be. So He Put His Arms Around Her And Whispered "Come With Me"
With Tearful Eyes We Watched Her Suffer And Fade Away, Although We Loved Her Dearly We Could Not Make Her Stay
A Golden Heart Stopped Beating And A Warm Loving Heart To Rest God Broke Our Hearts To Prove To Us That He Only Takes The Bests.
