I'm Ready for Spring!!

I'm Midgie. I'm 51 years old, and have been married 30 of them. I'm Mom to 2 grown sons, 29 & 26 years old - and ecstatic Grandma to 2 Granddaughters, ages 9 & 8 - and a 6 year old Grandson. Oh, and we dare not forget Their Majesties - Sammy, our bossy big kitten and his little sister, Katie! (Rico, my Beloved Tabby, crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2013.) They keep me busy!

As of February 18, 2013, I had lumbar surgery - which derailed my activity somewhat for a bit, but gave me the feeling back in my left leg!

If stress burned calories, after the last few years I'd be Twiggy! Alas, not. Did I mention I tend to be an emotional eater? Yeah. So, one of my biggest goals for this year - and always - is actually casting my burdens on My Lord instead of just talking about it! Anyone else out there with me?

Hooray for Sparks - and especially all my Sparkfriends who have hung with me through the nearly 5 years I've been here!! And big welcoming hugs to all the new friends I hope I'm going to make!

My Program:
The Weight Loss has really been kicking in, between the support I get here and at TOPS. I found out I was gluten Intolerant in August 2012; and going gluten-free has helped a lot - taking down the bloating, etc. I just had back surgery (02/18/13), which will really help my activity level once I recover, now that I no longer have a numb left leg!

Personal Information:
I live in Kalamazoo, Michigan with my husband of 30 years. We have two sons, who are 28 & 25; and 3 beautiful grandchildren (2 girls and a boy) who are 8, 7, and 6. I'm very blessed.... God has given me lots of reasons to want to live healthier & longer!

Hi Midgie

Dropping by to say hi and wish you a blessed Sunday and great week ahead... Hope you enjoy the following poem... emoticon

Friendship

We grow closer to each other
When we're closer to the Lord,
The common faith that we share
Binds our hearts in one accord

For friendships last a life time
When built on Jesus Christ,
Throughout each different season,
We find we are in life

Friends are there through times of grief
And times when hope is gone,
Always there with encouragement
So we can carry on

So thank the Lord for giving you
A true and faithful friend,
To laugh with you, and cry with you,
On whom you can depend

For friends will stay no matter what,
Giving you support
And together your hearts truly unite
With the love of the Lord.

By M.S.Lowndes
