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.

I LOVE spring and all the optimism it brings!

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 8 and 10) who live in the Atlanta area.

DH and I spend lots of time with my parents
( ages 86 and 89) who live 10 minutes away. They are needing more and more of our time & attention although they remain fiercely independent.

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).

Evelyn, here's a little note to start off your week:

emoticon A - Attitude can be our best friend or our worst enemy.

emoticon P - Proper preparation prevents poor performance.

emoticon R - Rest and sleep are important for your well-being.

emoticon I - If food is your best friend, it’s also your worst enemy.

emoticon L - Learn to relax. Inner peace begins with a relaxed body.

Hope you have an emoticon April!
