I am a mother of 4 perfect adult children, in part thanks to my dear ex-husband, and grandma to 12 with one on the way!

Retired from the State of Illinois, I have relocated to Minnesota to be near my daughter and her family.

No longer involved with West Suburban Toastmasters...( in La Grange Park.

I'd love to speak to any size group of people who would be interested in my topics: Toastmasters, customer service, personal and spiritual growth, goal setting and creating your reality and especially... The Law of Attraction.

I was just about to submit my final exams to become a certified Life Coach and Reiki Master when my school closed!

Other interests include reading, writing, country music and crochet.

I have lost weight through Spark People, and a Plant Based Diet.
I have learned that EXERCISE MAKES ME FEEL GOOD and made many friends! I sincerely hope you will have a similar experience here.

Spark On folks! Hugs to all...

Fitness Minutes: 60,472

My Goals:
Finish my weight loss (60 #) by this time next year....

Attain my Distinguished Toastmaster award and join the National Speakers Association.

Got sent a quote I'm going to try to live by:
"If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought."

~Peace Pilgrim

Read her biography. She was amazing!

My Program:
I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent Him who sent me.
I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do, because He who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever He wishes, knowing
He goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.

- A Course in Miracles - Textbook Chapter 2, Part V, verse 18

New fav quote from Mike Dooley: Thoughts become things...choose the good ones.

Personal Information:
I am retired from the State of Illinois. I now reside in Faribault, MN. I have 4 grown kids, 4 kids-in-law and 11 grandchildren!

I am single. I identify my sexual orientation as...flexible. Love knows no bounds.

Other Information:
I used to read constantly on personal/spiritual growth. Now I find A Course in Miracles and its newer version, the Law of Attraction, are all I need.

I have two books published. Here is an original quote:

"The answer to 'Where is God?' lies deep within each of us, Therein lies the irony, for where the answer resides, there its subject dwells."

I do still read the occasional best seller, historical fiction (my daughter got me into Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series...time travel historical romance!) and lez fiction.

With SP, I am making my ILLUSIONARY body better. The reality is my Spirit in Heaven.

One Spirit, One Mind, One Life, One God, One Love - One

    Thanks so much for the goodie and your sweet comments on my "secret". I ordered my Omron from Amazon with free shipping and got the model that has the software for easy download and tracking. My take on the pedometer is that it isn't going to be 100% accurate but I really don't care. I figure that it is probably "off" the same amount every day so I just go with the results and as long as I hit 10,000 on the register I'm happy.... so my best tip is not to stress about the accuracy and just do it LOL! Thanks again for your comments and all the best to you on your journey to health and fitness. Hugs, Rhonda

    Goodmorning! Thank you for dropping by my page ;) I am still not sure about the "fat" picture. I hate it so much, that I'm afraid that looking at it will discourage me. Maybe I'll take a new one and tuck it away in my photo page for reference.

    And regarding smoking... Well, I have probably been smoking for 25 years on and off -- since I started sneaking them in high school. But I have always been one of those smokers that everyone hates: I can go for days without smoking, then smoke like a fiend, then just not smoke for a week. But, of course, I've never just quit forever.

    Quitting this time started as a whim: I didn't quite commit to it -- but I did go spend some time over at If that website doesn't scare you straight, nothing will. emoticon

    Good luck with it! Let me know how it goes...
