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 (47 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 darlins!

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 so much for welcoming simpsca2000 to sparks. I encouraged her to join and told her how wonderful the people are here. Gosh some of you I have known for like 10 years! I told her that I gave a "shout out" to all of you to welcome her and as always am brought to tears with the love and support of all of you! Thank you again and have a terrific day!

    Usually, I get dressed as I drink my herbal tea, but yesterday and today, my cosy dressing gown was clinging to me lol...

    Food and money - the banes of our lives, which we can't live without. And planning, an essential tool - but taught badly...

    Hi there. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment on several of my blogs. Incredible how different strategies work for us. I guess it's, 'different strokes for different folks!'

    Elizabeth, thank you so much for reading and commenting on my "going through hell" blog. I really appreciate your kind words.

    So sorry to hear that you're in a sort of a hellish spot at the moment! But I'm glad that you have the confidence to get through it. I'm wishing you a safe journey through that place and back out into the light!
