I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 65 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (48 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little Darling.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    Thanks for asking. Side by side he had pancreatitis, which ended in major surgery to remove damaged parts, and an autoimmune disorder which caused the myelin covering of his nerves to be destroyed by his one system. In December 2015 I retired to care for him and was investigating funeral homes!
    He'll always have some nerve deficits but he can now fend for himself.
    You've been through a lot in the past, too.
    Here's to a better future!

    It really is funny - the things you find when looking for something else emoticon

    I try to keep an open mind - medicine is not an exact science.

    Huggers,

    emoticon Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by and answering my question on your mattress! 🌼 As much as I don't want to, it's time to get out there and find a new mattress! 🌻 I think my mattress is causing me a lot of problems! 🌸 I hope you have a Blessed Day!
