I am a retired teacher--taught 1st graders for 35 years. Am now very involved in volunteer projects, mostly throught my church. I love to travel and cruise. Am married (45 years) and have 1 son and 2 grandsons.

September, 2009
I've decided it's time to start over! I am determined to do better and to be successful!
I do get in regular exercise at Curves but I've not been very good with the diet! BUT, I'm not going on a diet, I'm going to work on life changes especially with my eating habits!

August 2018

Four and a half years since I lost my husband. I still talk to him but know one day I will see him. I have discovered that I’m stronger than I ever thought. I continue to travel and have learned I can do things he always did.

June 2014
My life has changed drastically since losing Chuck in January. I am learning I can do things I never thought I could do--like mowing the lawn! Chuck was the one who loved to work outside and I enjoyed what he planted! This year I took the easy way out--I planted artificial flowers! They bloom all year and I never have to worry about watering them!
October 2014
I'm approaching 9 months of being alone. I don't like it but I'm keeping busy. I have gotten back to Curves and I have lost 25 pounds. I WILL SURVIVE!

    Judy, thanks for all your advice and yes, we did have all that taken care of. It IS important! I have missed you and am so glad you got to Israel. I mean it I could LIVE there!

    As for the back surgery not sure what yours is but I had L4 & L5 operated on twice in the 80s best thing I ever had done so don't worry about it you will be so much better. Only reason I had it done twice was because they told me I HAVE TO REMEMBER ALWAYS I HAVE A BAD BACK even though it feels better. I have never had a problem since because I remember that. Keep me double posted on your surgery please. We will be praying for you for sure!!!

    More later...I have to go get my new glasses....I haven't seen well for almost a year and I am excited about this!

    We will talk more later....may the Lord Bless you in ALL!

    Someone stole my Microsoft Office, and they’re gonna pay! You have my Word.

    I tried to catch some fog yesterday . . . Mist.

    Parallel lines have so much in common. It’s a shame they’ll never meet.

    I can't find my rutabaga. I hope it will turnip.

    I used to be a bank teller, but I lost interest.

    Have a wonderful weekend! emoticon

    This Part Three of a “To Be Continued Wonderful Woman” message that will be completed by the end of the month. I hope you enjoy it.

    It's Wonderful ~ Woman ~ Wednesday!
    ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸♥ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ To my very strong and powerful friend`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ reading this message right now `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ The dominant force in our whole body`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ Is the foremost guiding standard which guides us`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ That which we call the “mind”.`*•.¸`*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ However, contrary to popular belief,`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ It is not located within our head.`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ It is firmly lodged in the middle of our breast.`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ The “real mind” and all of its “knowing” `*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ Resides deep within our heart. `*•.¸`*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ We must decide to be an indomitable sleuth, `*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ To uncover the cleverly disguised untruth.`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ We must summon the courage to face the plight`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ To probe, discover, and bring forth the truth`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ Out of the darkness and into the light.`*•.¸`*•.¸

    Thanks so much for dropping in with your support and encouragement to help me win!
    I hope you are having a good week!
