I welcome you to my page and remind you of the importance of doing monthly self breast exams and having a mammogram as your Dr. reccomends.
I care beacause I am a Breast Cancer Survivor, and these things saved my life!

12 points that make Spark People work for me.

Here's my recipe for a New Life:

To make each day better than the day before!
T remember what's important to me and that each new day is a gift from God.
To organize my time and make the most of everyday.
To keep my home orderly, organized and clean.
To take better care of my health by eating the most nutritious diet possible.
To take part in a regular physical fitness program with a daily exercise routine, supplemented by other activities I enjoy depending on the season.
To live my life with respect to all of God's creatures.
To improve my mind, body and spirit on a daily basis.
To support and give care to those who need it.
To ask for support when I need it.
To spend money on necessary needs, avoiding wasteful spending .
This is why I am a Spark Person, to live a purpose filled and goal orientated life!

    Remember today you are worth the love you have for others.
    Today you will fight the good fight.
    You will honor yourself, by fighting your demons.
    Feed yourself the love that you have for God and others, to yourself.
    Nourish your soul with foods that make you want to be happy.
    Don't put yourself, on the bottom of your list.
    Represent what it is you give out to others.
    And stand strong in the fact that you are loved.
    Don't see the bottle half empty,
    For it is half full!
    Be grateful for life.
    Try loving your best friend, you! by e. herz
