hi everyone!
I am a 58 yr old that wants to be healthy and enjoy a beautiful life. I am trying to get back into better physical shape. I was very motivated a few yrs ago and reached my goal weight. Then with some very hard losses in my life it crept back in. My beautiful 21 yr old son died in 2012 and i now reach out to other grieving parents to help each other. I have met wonderful people on Sparkpeople.

Sparkfriends have made life easier in so many ways. It is not just about the weight loss. Its is about the sharing and caring of your fellow human beings. Giving love and support to others is so much easier then being miserable. I say Sunshine works everytime!

I am now on a path of rediscovering who i am now thru meditation ,yoga, spirituality...

    Your goodie was so very appreciated and your understanding and compassion in the words that came with it truly touched my heart. This week has been a really rough one. The grief group is helpful but I also feel that I soak up so much of everyone's grief that it might be deterring me a little. I'm going to talk to my grief counselor and ask her what I can do to protect my heart from soaking up everyone else's grief. This week a younger lady lost her hubby as he was cleaning the gutters out and fell off the ladder and drown in their pool. She found him at night after she and her daughter got home from a baby shower. How horrifying...I just couldn't stop crying for her. Then I was physcially exhausted the rest of the day and into the night. Do you ever experience that? It's kind of scary....I felt her pain just as sharply as if it were my own. emoticon

    Thank you Maureen for your constant support and love. We have been there for each other for a long, long time and I know we will continue to be. My hope is that one day we will meet in person so we can give each other the monster hugs that we both deserve! Things are moving forward and I'm feeling at will be a beautiful day for a beautiful man...he deserves every minute of the love he'll gather from all of those he touched and loved! I'm SO thankful his rotten mom and sister are not going to be in the crowd...they would for SURE find a way to ruin it...geographical distance is a good, good thing with rotten in-laws! Big sigh of relief! emoticon

    Thanks so much beautiful Maureen for the angel wings...they are my MOST favorite goodie so they are perfect for me right now. I pray they carry me up and over these major challenges we are facing right now. Please pray for my hubs when he undergoes surgery June 6th. I pray that the surgeon knows what he is doing and that this takes care of DH's discomfort.

    You know me...I worry so much about these doctors here in FL...I will ask our big angel Josh and his buddy, Justin, your dear son to work their magic and guide the surgeon's hands!

    Love you my sweet friend...I'm sending love and light your way! emoticon
