I am a retired Speech Pathologist, who does contract therapy a couple of hours a week with preschoolers. Two weeks after I retired, Luis, my only child died. I have been working through my grief journey ever since with the suppport of my faith in God, family, friends, and my incredible support groups. I have been incorporating exercise into my daily life for the past 14 months to have more energy to enjoy life! I still struggle daily to get out of bed. I have been pursuing my love of art, especially watercolor and participating in the guardian ad litem program in my state of Florida, which monitors the safety and welfare of foster children. My husband volunteers with the Meals on Wheels program, so I sometimes send baked goods to share with the seniors who come to the center. This helps satisfy my love of baking, but I don't gain the calories from the baking! I enjoy reading, gardening, swimming in my pool, and spending time with family (to include four gatos!) and friends.

“Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become…habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny! What we think we become.” By Margret Thatcher
