Awesome sister Barbara...

Sunday, June 30, 2013

This was at the wedding of a nephew in 2009. Barbara is a wonderful woman with a challenging job but had been letting life 'just happen'.

'BK' got serious about her health when she had to add diabetic pills to her hypertension meds...joined a gym and then hired a personal trainer. Next picture is when I visited her in 2011. Also gave her the pink suit I was wearing in Picture one!

And the final picture is when she visited me July of 2012....we did a ZipLine. Could I imagine doing a ZipLine with the gal in the first picture? Don't think so.

I am SO so proud of this sister......will blog about the successes of Awesome sister Marcia (also very proud of her) when she gives permission for me to do that and shares pictures with me.
