I've battled with having 'too much of me' all my life. I need to make permanent lifestyle changes to be healthier and would love to have an eating plan that didn't feel like a diet.

About me: I live in Australia. I'm a paper crafter and teacher who makes cards, scrapbooks, ATCs, 3-d projects and paper flowers. You can see some of my work at http://www.papercraftcentral.com

I'm married and between us we have three grown children. The grandbabies have started coming too ...

I'm married and between us we have three grown children. The grandbabies have started coming too :) It's a blessing to have them.

My faith in Christ is of utmost importance to me and I belong to a local church.

Dropping by to say hi and wish you a fantastic day. Cheering you on your journey, you are doing great. Keep up the great work... emoticon

Hope you enjoy the following friendship poem... emoticon

What Is A Friend?

A friend is someone always there
in the back of your mind,
providing feelings of comfort and security.
A friend is someone
who adds happy sparkle to your life,
joy, fun, a predictable creator of happiness.
A friend is a stormproof shelter
from life’s challenges, troubles, uncertainties,
an unassailable bond overcoming any challenge,
strengthening the connection in the process.
You are all this and more, my friend.
Thank you.

With spring just around the corner I thought this was a perfect time to share this Poem about springtime. Hope you enjoy....

Sweet Spring

When the gloomy gray sky turns to clear azure blue,
And the snow disappears from the ground,
When the birds start to sing, and our moods start to lift,
Then we know Spring is coming around.
When the first flower bulbs poke their heads toward the sun,
Golden daffodils, hyacinths, too;
When the brown grass turns green, and the wildflowers bloom,
Then sweet Spring makes its showy debut.
Once again we awake from cold winter's pale dream,
As our minds and our bodies revive;
We rejoice and delight in spring's colorful sight;
Each new spring makes us glad we're alive!
