Blessed with another beautiful day!

Trying to balance some health issues with the responsibility of looking out for others can be a challenge. I try to meet those challenges each day in a positive way.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live in a small town not far from the greater Atlanta area.

In June of 2012 I retired from teaching, a career that I embarked upon in 1972. During those 40 years I taught full time for 26 years and was a stay at home mom for 14 years.

I did not start any type of exercise program until I hit some roadblocks in my 60s. I am not proud of that, but I am proof that it is NEVER too late to start taking care of yourself.


Other Information:
I love to spend time with my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters
(ages 9 and 11) who live in the Atlanta area.

DH and I spend lots of time with my parents
( ages 87 and 90) who live 10 minutes away. They are needing more and more of our time & attention.

I love the tranquility of nature. Gardening and feeding the birds are my daily indulgences.

I love coffee, and I love chocolate.

I now love exercise (amazing, but true). I didn't begin any form of exercise program until I was in my 60s, following a serious accident. What a difference today!

It's interesting people's perspective on distance. I didn't go to the cracker barrel because it was a 30 minute drive (I thought that was too far). I can do a 5k (3.1 miles) no problem. For marathons - I am trying to complete 50 states - I got like 20 more to do - so I am trying to aim for like 8 a year (4 in six months and the another 4 in six months). Some people call me a walker - my aim is to complete it. So it's really your goal. Some people are time conscious and they probably won't do like I do because your times are all over the place.

Thank you for the goodie. I added you as a friend. I sure need one that understands and if you're not a caregiver, you don't really understand!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog, "Mockingbird Hill."
My mom sang all the time when I was a little girl. If it was on the Hit Parade she sang it. This song just makes you happy. I have a lot of mockingbirds here at my place, as well as cardinals, doves robins and meadow larks in the spring. I enjoy watching and listening to the birds.
