Cherished teddy


I am a Christian and my priority is to live my life as God wants me to. When God is in control everything will work out. My family is very important to me.
I have several health issues, but choose not to let them control my life any more than necessary. I need to lose about 10 lbs to get back to a healthy weight. My highest weight was about 185 lbs.

I have several health issues, but choose not to let them control my life any more than necessary. I need to lose about 10 lbs to get back to a healthy weight. My highest weight was about 185 lbs. I lost the ability to walk and the lbs. packed on. With WW, lots of determination I lost 45 lbs. Since than I have really had to work on keeping it off. With thyroid issues it makes it harder, but I know it can be done.
I like getting to know people of all ages. Everyone has something to offer.
I collect cherished teddies and like teddy bears in general.


Current Status:
TEDDYBEARDONNA is recovering from a serious car accident. DH is still in the hospitl and I hope he is released later this week.

Hi to Donna's spark friends....Donna and her husband were in a car accident yesterday and are in the hospital. They both have broken bones and much pain. They asked for prayer.
Thanks Barb

Worry over the future breeds anxiety. Fretting over the past breeds depression. Both can stop our good movement forward and put us in front of the TV with a bad movie and too much of the stuff we don’t need to put into our bodies. That horrid cycle, of course, breeds regret and dread that brings us to more of the same. I believe that is called “insanity”.

Instead work to stay in the present taking the next step needed for living to the full the “now” that is before you, having learned better ways from past experience and pushing forward with hope that right action now will produce a better tomorrow. This is living life with power that produces a good outcome and protects our journey from wasting away.

Plan for the future, yes; but let the first plan be to live your best you in the now you have to possess.

Thank you for the flowers. I know it is hard to believe that my youngest will be starting school next year. Time flies by so fast.

I hope your day is full of smiles. Keep up the good work.

I am evaluating my motives this month and getting them firmed up in my mind and heart. It is making a huge difference for me, knowing why I am doing what I am doing. How about you? Commitment to the journey is greatly helped by a constant flow of understanding the reasons behind the steps taken.
