You gotta just keep swimming!

In Memory of my most precious sister-in-Christ: "Glenda Brown: You can become like water Donna...patient, ever seeking, and unstoppable..."
Hi from the great state of Louisiana. I was born & raised in New Orleans & am SO happy to finally be home after 30 years - this time to stay!
I am married to my wonderful husband of 12 years & we live with our 3 furbaby rescue dogs: 2 min-pin mixes, Shemp (because he's such a stooge), Polly (because she's such a princess), & Paco (our rat dog, a chihuahua). We also have 2 invisible & unsociable cats (Sox & Shado, brother & sister) that only come out when they want to eat & the 2 times during the day when they want to be scratched. LOL
My favorite things to do are Line dancing, snuggling in a soft throw blanket & reading, with my dogs by my side, word search puzzles, watching movies with my Honey, sleeping, & when the weather get's warmer & the season is right - go crabbing (catching blue crab) & going fishing in our great Louisiana lakes!

My Motto: God First
My stand on God's Word is what gets me through all things, good & bad.
I have to remember that I've already proven to myself I can lose 45 lbs. without much difficulty. All I have to do is stick to my routine!
I'm normally very quiet until I know someone well. People consider me very fair, trustful, honest, fun to be around, & easy to get along with. Normally I am slow to anger but when you push me past my limit, watch out. You will KNOW you pissed me off. (Must be the Italian in me. LOL.)
I'm strong yet I'm a little girl at heart, sometimes too nieve but not stupid, I'm fun to be around when you get to know me well, I don't like to be made fun of, I've got a sensitive heart but won't be fooled, I'm good at first impressions, and can easily read someone.
My fav quotes:
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts!!"
