I am turning 60 in August, but I am NOT slowing down!

I am a principal of a large school for children of military members, mother, and grandmother to seven funny, smart and brilliant grandkids. Recently, my husband went home to Jesus, and I am adjusting to being a widow. I loved being a wife, and this has been hard on me.

I am a principal of a large school for children of military members, mother, and grandmother to seven funny, smart and brilliant grandkids. Recently, my husband went home to Jesus, and I am adjusting to being a widow. I loved being a wife, and this has been hard on me.

I love walking and biking all over Germany, and the surrounding countries. I love to travel, and am blessed to be able to do it at this season of my life. Another passion I have is baking for my co-workers and friends.

My God continues to be my source of strength, peace and everlasting joy. He is my gracious, redeemer, my friend and my enduring, wise counselor. Without Him I am nothing. He gives me purpose to my life. I am a SOLD out, unashamed conservative Christian called to work in a school setting.

I am excited about what God has planned for me, and thankful that He loves me so much.

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

You can't lose weight by talking about it. You have to keep your mouth shut.
Thanksgiving is approaching. If you want to stay in the top five for team fitness minutes, you may have to keep your mouth shut and your body moving! emoticon
My advice is to count your calories as well as your blessings!
Congratulations on a job well done this week!
