Hello, my name is Paula. I am a 42 year old Paramedic. I have a 23 year old who has moved out and doing the college thing. I am divorced and live in a small rural community. I have just started going back to college online and what an adjustment that has been. I am trying to get myself more healthy along with more educated. Trying to find support locally is hard to do. I find people to walk with here and there but no one to hold me accountable, which is something I really need. I hope to find some people on here to build a good support system and friendship with. God has blessed me with a great life and a great career. I find myself being a hypocrite though preaching to patients about their lifestyle and taking care of themselves when I myself have an extra 35 pounds on and don't exercise the way I should. Frequently in my career I see people who's lives take dramatic changes and they say their should ofs and the could ofs. I don't want to wake up someday being in that situation so I have started a bucket list. This year I want to lose the weight, get fit, and make my first marathons. I look forward to this New Year and all its blessings. Good luck and Gods blessing to each and everyone of you!!! We all can do this!!!! 381 I would like to complete my first 5k, half marathon, and tough mudder in the next year.

    emoticon Valentine's Day gives me a reason to express the feelings, emoticon

    I think about but don't say about people, who enrich my life in unique and meaningful ways.

    You are this kind of person. When I think of you, my thoughts are warm, and fond,

    And filled with admiration. I feel blessed to know you.

    May your Valentine's Day be filled with the love and respect you deserve.

    emoticon emoticon Have a Happy Valentine's Day emoticon emoticon

    -- -- -- Love is not a feeling-Love is an action-love is a choice. -- -- --

    -- -- -- If you want to express unconditional love-don't put conditions on it. -- -- --

    -- -- -- When you're tempted to say one more thing-let it be "I love you". -- -- --

    -- -- -- There are three things that last...faith hope, and love. -- -- --

    -- -- -- To love and be loved...that is life's greatest gift. To share joy with those most important in our lives...that is a blessing. -- -- --
