Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter in May 2013 for a total of 5 grand-daughters and 1 grandson-the first and eldest of the grands..

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

SparkPoints: 71,668

Fitness Minutes: 68,933

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

Thanks Ginie, we do so appreciate the prayers. It's as I said when Max called the other day he said, he and Raiden's mother just couldn't believe the number of people who had been extending wishes and he said it surprised him how good it made them feel just to not feel so alone.

Well, we know that here don't we. Sometimes when the paperwork was burying you and the stress of making things happen, you would write something here and we would have the chance to say some little encouraging word and hopefully since you had vented the steam, you were more prepared to deal with the challenges....and I know there have been still are a lot of challenges. Thanks so much for adding our worries to your prayers. It helps.

emoticon Thanks for stopping by my page and leaving the comment about the lovely shawl that you made. So you did the rib then the K3 P3 pattern to create the body of the shawl then ended with rib again right?
I love Prayer shawls I have made a lot of them and some are used as lapghans as well as shawls they are so versatile.
Have a lovely day Paula

Thanks for the hug!! I needed that! As I was walking this morning, I was thinking about how I feel deprived -- can't have this, can't have that. Then I wondered why I wanted that stuff (mostly sugary things) and why I couldn't savor what I can have (lots of foods I enjoy).

We're works in progress and we only fail when we stop trying.

emoticon right back to you!!

Love, Janet
