I am 46 years old - am married to a wonderful man (this March will be 20 years). We have not been blessed with our own children; however as my sister has told me I am a mother to everyone I meet no matter their age. We do have 6 beautiful 4-legged children. All dogs - their names are Sterling (Pom), Sarah (tea cup chihuaha), Bristol (pomuaha), Friday (pomuaha), Ducky (pomuaha), and Lil Bit (Giant Schnauzer). I help with our 5th Grade Sunday School class, the Lord has blessed us in so many ways. One was getting my husband and I together. We met he asked me on a date - 3 days later her proposed and within a month we were married. He loves me no matter my weight, however he is very supportive and even pushy when I need to be pushed. He let's me know that I can do anything I want. Now he does not eat the same foods as me, but he does not insist that I eat what he has. And when I do not have time he will fix my food for me based on the Sparkpeople menu (tracker) I print out each week. Enough about me - looking forward to meeting new friends on-line. May you all have a wonderful day and be blessed with His grace and peace.

    ******THE ROAD OF LIFE HAS MANY TURNS******
    Sometimes the road of life takes us to a place we had planned....

    Sometimes it shows us a surprise around the bend we could never have anticipated. We make decisions based on the information we have...We accept our ups and downs as they come...We live "one day at a time."

    But often we find it is only when we look back that we can see that what we had thought was a "wrong turn" has brought us to exactly the right place and every step was a right one after all!!

    Thank you for letting me share this with you!! (Actually Barb-BARBIE52, shared it with me and I just wanted to share it with you.) Trust that you are exactly where you are supposed to be today...

    “Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks. We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects. One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.” ― Jillian Michaels
