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.

    Thank you so much for the comment on my KAPUT blog. I really appreciate your sharing your own experience. Although I want everyone to be happy, it really makes me feel less alone to know that others have suffered in ways similar to the way I have. I take solace in the fact that you have dealt with depression and sadness and are still here and doing your best to live life to the fullest. It's inspiring.

    I was just reading your latest blog, by the way, and am in awe of your courage. God be with you and all your family at this difficult time.

    Our son went to have an inguinal hernia fixed and he passed out. He lives in Wisconsin and we live in Maine. He did not let us till last night so we could not go to see him. He is a bachelor and he lives in a very big house. We have not seen it. He bought it for himself and we were going to visit him. I think if we drive it will be three days.

    I am sure they have checked him out. He is an executive in Sheboygan in Wisconsin and he always wanted a house of his own. He did it but he is a bachelor.
    Did you say there is a PRIVATE whatever on my page. I am not very good with this site despite I have been here a long while. Would you tell me if it is PRIVATE Pat in Maine.
