Hi SCOOTSMOM50! I'm posting here in case you miss it on my blog, in answer to your questions and comments. I was not "downing'' myself. I am very big on self worth and valuing who I am. I'm a little upset with myself because I know what works for me and even though it is hard to stick to, my life is important enough that I should do what is necessary. I never give up. I never give in...which leads me to another thing you said. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being the SHE BEAST. It is a term of honor. It means I am a gentle, driven, in your face monster with a heart of gold who never gives up. Aggressive, assertive, unwilling to fail. MaryJane is a She-Beast! I tell it like it is. I love everyone. You are right, I am warm, nice, sweet and loving, as most of my friends, including quite a number of spark friends who know me in person, will attest. But I am FIERCE. I was given the name by another sparker because of my tenacity and my refusal to just roll over and give up. I fight hard for what I want and for what is important. I do thank you for the compliments though, and I understand why you would think the name wasn't very flattering. Trust me, it is a badge of honor to be the She Beast! I do play with the grandbabies a lot. I work out at home with my grandson, too. We do yoga and ST together. Khali and I will be going on lots of short walks, as my arthritis, back, and knees only allow for short ones right now. Which brings me to Khali. She is a Coton de Tulear, a breed native to Madagascar. She was an owner surrender because the owners were moving. I don't know why they couldn't take her, but I'm awfully glad to have her. My husband was so wonderful to make her my present when he saw how much we were drawn to each other. I'm blessed! Thank you for your loving comments, hug, prayers, and best wishes. I appreciate them so much!
