Welcome to my Spark page.

This past year has been a year of learning, changing, and revelations. I have seen so many things in me that need to change and in my life. I have seen that I need to stop letting my circumstances control me and take my life back, to live a moment by moment pro active life not reactive. Sparkpeople, and my weight loss and journey to the best health I can have is part of it all. I know I can do it, and I know you can too!!!

"The Happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.

You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking."

Marcus Aurelius

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there!!

    Thanks beautiful Margaret for sending that great goodie and your interesting and helpful suggestions to keep me connected with my group of grief group buddies. I have been texting and Face Timing but the Zoom app and the Marco Polo app sound wonderful!

    I will definitely check into them and thanks so much for bringing them to my attention.

    How are you doing? It's a bummer your son can't keep up his training at the rink...I know how important his skating is to him but it's great his trainer has found a way to work around this situation.

    I always think of your sweet brother and how very kind he was to Erin and I when we went to NY. How is he doing. It scares me how NY is under such seige. I hope he is safely at home.

    I've had the gallery closed since 3/13. It looks like it will stay closed at least through the endo of April...maybe longer. This is SUCH a financial hit to small businesses...I don't even know what the future holds but I just give it to God. Otherwise I'd go nuts!

    I'm sorry for your friend by is a really weird thing. I'm usually okay as long as I have plenty of projects...but even those can get a little boring day after day.

    I'm certainly not complaining though...our poor hospital workers just breaks my heart. Those wonderful heart just breaks for their dedication in putting themselves in danger every single day. I can't imagine! Angels walk amongst us...that is absolutely apparent in this horrible crisis.

    Hugs to you my friend I'm praying for the world...we surely need those powerful prayers now more than ever! emoticon
