My Transforming Journey

July 12, 2013. The REAL, the one and only BIG start over. The day I found my hubby submerged in the deep end of our pool....after he'd apparently tripped and hit his head on the cement as he fell in.

I thought my life changed on January 26, 2013, five and a half months earlier when I lost my mom...but little did I know.

I am now trying now to find out who I am without him. The REAL transformation has begun.

Fitness Minutes: 2,205

My Goals:
How many wake up calls does it take? I have been SO blessed with good genes and daily miracles, but I recognize my time on this wonderful planet is not forever. I want to get to a normal body weight before it is too late, so I can extend the quality of my wonderful life.

My Program:
Mindfulness in all things.

Live in a constant state of gratitude.

Laugh until my belly hurts.

Forgive all.

Stand right back up if I fall.

Personal Information:
I am what I am.

Other Information:
Fourth generation Californian, old hippie, who despite her protests, has grown become a combination of both of her parents.

I love theater, "fringe" music (opera, trad jazz, folk, Hawaiian falsetto, etc.), foriegn films and "funky" art. I paint, travel, laugh, and talk too much.

I think life is an spiritual journey and realize, even at my age, I have only just begun, and am barely scratching the surface of awareness.

I never read as much as I would like to, but am in a group that forces me to read at least one book a month...

In 2013 I lost both my mom and my husband... But am blessed to still have my dad, my son, my friends, and most of all my two precious grandbabies.,

This is simply perfect...Happy Wednesday, with thanks for YOU.

TO SAY NOTHING BUT THANK YOU
by Jeanne Lohmann

All day I try to say nothing but thank you,
breathe the syllables in and out with every step I
take through the rooms of my house and outside into
a profusion of shaggy-headed dandelions in the garden
where the tulipsí black stamens shake in their crimson cups.

I am saying thank you, yes, to this burgeoning spring
and to the cold wind of its changes. Gratitude comes easy
after a hot shower, when my loosened muscles work,
when eyes and mind begin to clear and even unruly
hair combs into place.

Dialogue with the invisible can go on every minute,
and with surprising gaiety I am saying thank you as I
remember who I am, a woman learning to praise
something as small as dandelion petals floating on the
steaming surface of this bowl of vegetable soup,
my happy, savoring tongue.

JEANNE LOHMANN has published eight collections of poetry and two books of prose. At nearly 91, she relishes walks through her Olympia, Washington, neighborhood and remains active in the local poetry community.
