Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Aside: Once knew a man who sang at church, and had heard he sang also for a living. I heard him sing. I was not impressed. However, one day at church, there was a song, it must have had special meaning to him for he put his heart and soul into it. Then, I heard the man sing. Then, the man was a singer. Then the man was a musician. Then the man was something to be recognized by his God with the talent he was given.

Do not fear what the children and young adults taught you and what you felt.

You are too sweet, I wouldn't know the first thing about writing or publication.
I did love your story though and thought about it a lot last night and this morning, sure would like to hear the end of it. Maybe you should put that one in a book.
