*********
I love to scrapbook, crochet and I love to swim.

I was dad's main caretaker and also his patient advocate - dad passed away last July. I MISS him so much!

I LOVE Detroit Redwing Hockey and Tiger Baseball teams!

I just celebrated my 6th year sparkversary!

Six years on Spark fighting through major and minor health issues along way - may have detoured me on my journey to losing weight but it has never waylaid me to leave spark. I continue to Spark on through it all - learning new ways to gain health. I have left 6 specialists in the medical field - woohoo! and I have gained so much health!

I have had thirteen surgeries/procedures - eight within the last 9 years. I have a left ankle impairment - I was hit by a drunk driver 16 years ago.

I don't make resolutions. I make commitments to myself, knowing that along the pathway to health, I will take many detours on this journey.

I do have goals I strive to meet.

I have learned that I have to be willing to give and to take, push and to shove, fighting my way - full blast head first through conflict, defeat, and sometimes even despair. But, always on my way I go.

I know that my God, well He is limitless. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I shall overcome and I shall not give in.

One health issue after another, does not get me down, it builds me up.

Come back soon.. I change my theme often!
