I'll never~ever~ever give up!

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 61 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (45 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 ...

Thanks for the Paris message!! Yeah, I would love to have a hired spring cleaning. Not sure the hubby would go along with that and I think I would deal with a bit of guilt. I'm doing better--I've just stopped cleaning and am focusing on the bigger jobs!!! emoticon

I LOVE those small locally owned businesses. What a wonderful service. They give such a gift by being so caring of their customers!!!
All's well here. We can't wait to get anecdotes from your great trip.

It sounds like your depressions were different from mine. You are unique and terrific and very different from each person around you -- including me, and you seem to be one who bounces back stronger than ever. I have lost a lot of bounce lately. Can you send some to me, lol?

I was diagnosed in the late 70's and have been trying to keep myself okay all these years. Each new med helps for a while then poops out and then I have to change again. Quite the bore so I don't talk about it all that much. Sigh. On and on.

Thanks for reading, Sp friend.

Hugs to Loyal Liz!

Hi Liz
It has been a while...I have been MIA from Spark for a long time...not that I haven't been trying....my scale has been like a yo-yo, but I'm not giving up.
Since I've retired...I'm very busy. I don't know how I got so much done before when I was working. LOL
Anyway, Hope all is well with you and yours.
Just wanted to stop by and say HI.
Take care,
Barbara
