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 (49years!)
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 darlings.

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.

    Elizabeth, thank you so much for your comment on my page. What a sweet surprise! I have been longing to write a new blog, but things are so hectic over here at the moment. I keep telling people I'll write soon to update all my story lines. I need to do that!

    Thank you for your support. I've always enjoyed reading your warm comments on others' blogs. I'm adding you as a friend today and look forward to following your story.

    Have a great weekend! I'm halfway through Saturday morning, with a bunch of urgent jobs to finish before house renovations start on Monday. Huffing and puffing and trying to get there!

    What a beautiful compliment. Thank you. And thank you too, for your sympathy over the loss of my dear Dorothy. The emotions engendered by that far outweighed anything else in my week. Weight management can come this week. And besides, I didn't do so badly on that front either. Small mercies.

    Yes, I agree, parental guidance is for our kids, and then carefully.... If she asks, I will suggest, if not, well she's an adult and makes her own choices. Thanks for your valuable input on my honesty blog.

    A SPA visit sounds wonderful...just name the place, date and time and I will be there with my towel.
