Oct./2010-Tho not a "pink" person, I've changed my page color in honor of this imp. issue & it's survivors. My way of showing support this month, tho I don't have cancer myself.

July/2010 - Well, I'm finally getting to update this page, as it's my 1 yr. Anniversary on SP this month. WooHoo!!

I'm please to say that I am NOT a couch potato anymore! I exercise every day. I LUV the pool and walk a lot. Even do strength training all week long. So, that's my steps forward...

On the food front, it's steps backward. Tho I'm eating healthier, I still eat too much...way TOO MUCH (LOL)! So, I go over my calorie allowance consistently. That's my big goal for this year, to stay within my allowance consistently.

SP has been GREAT! this year. I started out slowly last July, and built 'til I'm getting awards for attendance and consistency. WooHoo! I love racking up the points! and buying Goodies for myself and others. LOL

The rest of my life is pretty much the same. I do a lot at my Church and am starting a job caring for a man just out of a nursing home. I'm depending on SP to help me stay motivated and focused, so I can reach my goal this year.

July/2009 -I've been on every diet and have lost and regained weight time and again. Now my health in involved as I have diabetes, so it's not just a matter of my clothes not fitting and wanting to look good. My current goal is modest, only 8 pounds over the next month. Help!

I'm retired and living the good life in Florida. I thank God every day for this wonderful life I have by much volunteering at my Church. Getting down to my goal weight would make me more comfortable on my feet during these activities.

    A friend is like a shade tree
    Beside a summer way.
    A friend is like the sunshine
    That makes a perfect day.
    A friend is like a flower
    That's worn close to the heart.
    A friend is like a treasure
    With which one will not part.

    The Gift Of Knowing You
    There are gifts of many treasures
    For both the young and old,
    From the tiniest little trinkets
    To great boxes filled with gold.

    But, put them all together
    And they could not stand in lieu,
    Of the greatest gift of all
    The gift of knowing you.

    When your times are filled with troubles
    Sadness, grief, or even doubt,
    When all those things you planned on
    Just aren't turning out.

    Just turn and look behind you
    From the place at which you stand,
    And look for me through the shadows
    And reach out for my hand.

    I will lift from you your burden
    And cry for you your tears,
    Bear the pain of all your sorrows
    Though it may be for a thousand years.

    For in the end I would be happy
    To have helped you start anew,
    It's a small price to pay
    For the gift of knowing you.

    Have A Wonderful Weekend!

    I pray you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
    I pray you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
    I pray you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
    I pray you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
    I pray you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
    I pray you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
    I pray you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

    There is a quality about you
    That touches me deep in my heart
    This quality is so special
    It sets you quite apart

    You're a kind and generous person
    Who can brighten up my day
    Bringing much joy to my life
    With your kind and thoughtful ways

    Thank you for all you do
    And all that you've done
    Too numerous to mention
    Thanks for each one

    Drain the colour from the rainbow,
    Let the stars tumble from the sky,
    Mute the bird’s morning chorus,
    Steal the beauty from the flowers.
    All these and more I’d sacrifice,
    And surely would survive.
    But friendship . . . .
    Not a moment could I bare,
    To be without the friends I love.
    For they are life’s true wonders,
    Filling my heart, my soul, my senses.
    With all the colours of happiness,
    With every sight and sound of joy.
