Just turned 71 and it feels so old but I'm still here and I'm still kicking. I live in the Midwest in the summer and in Fl. in the winter. Just want to get and stay healthy. Need some friends to help along the way just found out about this site and thought I'd try it and see. I have 3 sons and 4 grandchildren. I want to be around for them for a long time. I was widowed at age 40 and our boys were 12,13 and 16. My job was to raise them and after they were married I looked for and found another wonderful man. We married about 12 years ago after a devestating incident with a root canal that put me in the hospital for 3 months and a long rehab. I am now happily retired . I am so lucky to have 2 wonderful men in my life plus my wonderful son's as well. My husband is now retired although he had a rough start major back surgery and a stroke he is well on his way to recovery and we are finally starting to enjoy retirement.
My husband had a devestating accident last July where he lost one of his best friends. He was injured badly and is slowly healing.

    Yes...this is just what Kathy said each day is a little better so there IS light at the end of the tunnel...just keep focusing on that.

    Did you read Kathy's blogs of her experience? I think this will help you also.

    AND best of all read her current blogs where she is having the time of her life right now in Oslo Norway looking up her family and her roots. She and her son are walking EVERYWHERE...up hills, through museums...everywhere!

    That will be your inspiration. She had a really tough time in the beginning...but just look at her today...it was SO worth it so don't give up and keep holding Teddy Bear strong my friend! emoticon emoticon emoticon
