I'm Midgie. I'm 52 years old, and have been married 31 of them. I'm Mom to 2 grown sons, 30 & 26 years old - and ecstatic Grandma to 2 Granddaughters, ages 10 & 9 - and a 7 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 6 years I've been here!! And big welcoming hugs to all the new friends I hope I'm going to make!

Nothing is impossible (Luke 1:37)!

Personal Information:
I live in Kalamazoo, Michigan with my husband of 31 years. We have two sons, who are 30 & 26; and 3 beautiful grandchildren (2 girls and a boy) who are 10, 9, and 7. I'm very blessed.... God has given me lots of reasons to want to live healthier & longer!

    Friendship Duet

    We meet new people every day;
    Why we like some, who can say?
    Maybe it's because they think like us;
    It might be because they seldom fuss.

    It's hard to know why closeness grows;
    We like some better; that's how it goes.
    I think you're special; I’m glad we met;
    Let's keep having fun in our friendship duet.
