God has been so incredibly good to me! He deserves better... He has blessed me with a wonderful husband, children, grandchildren and friends. At 62-years-old I would like to give Him the gift of a healthy body, not weighed down by extra pounds.
My desire is to be able to live the rest of my years on this earth being as healthy as possible--to be able to play with my grandchildren, work in my garden and enjoy life as fully as God intends.
I have recently changed my plan to the You on A Diet plan. The diet is very much in line with the Mediterranean diet--fruits, veggies, nuts, mono-unsaturated oils. I'm loving the diet and having great success. I am a member of Curves, and I work in my garden as much as possible.
I am a mother of 6 and grandmother of 18. grandchildren. We have one grandchild who is Down Syndrome and 2 who are autistic. They are very, very special to us as are all our grandchildren. My husband is retired Navy; we traveled a lot for half our married life. I worked in hospice, public health and mental health until recently. We now own a small farm in northeast Georgia where we raise pygmy goats and have pasture ornament horses, Great Pyrenees, muscovey ducks and 2 cats.
I love music, gardening and reading. My taste in music and reading is eclectic--classical music, blue grass, praise & worship, big band, 60''s & 70''s; historical biographies, Christian non-fiction and Janet Evanovich.

WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS ,
SEND IT TO AT LEAST 5 PEOPLE,
INCLUDING THE PERSON WHO SENT IT! TO YOU!!!
You have just been hugged!
That's right, there's no getting out of it this time!
This is the start of a full-scale Hug O' War!
So hug everyone you know!
With all the other forwards out there,
I thought this would be a good one to start.
The hug is my favorite sign of affection.
It can mean so much, and many things at the same time.
It can be a sign of love, support, caring, comfort or anything.
So here you go. All I can say it will do is brighten someone's day.
I mean, we all need a hug once in a while.
So send this on if you'd like, to anyone who may need a hug,
send it back to whoever sent it to you,
Goodness knows, we could all REALLY use a hug sometimes.
Soooo . enjoy your hug . and pass one on to someone else . . .
especially, someone that really needs one! Thanks ...

I want to share this poem with my spark friends!
Help Me Not Cheat
I don't like that word "cheat"!
How ridiculous of me
to think that I can somehow get ahead
by committing fraud against myself.
Show me if there is a problem
in my approach to dieting
that makes cheating seem worthwhile.
If so, I want to change that, Lord.
I want to feel clean and whole
and honest through and through.
I don't want to cheat myself
or others or You.
Today I pray to hunger for integrity
in my deepest being.
May I automatically reject the idea
of dishonesty in any form,
be it little white lies, secret binges,
or false flattery from others.
I want to be reliable and
honest with little things
so that You might trust me
with the big things.
But I need Your help.
You are "the way and the truth
and the life" (John 14:6),
and I'm counting on You. Amen.
