Hi, I am an active Grandmother and working nurse. I enjoy hiking, swimming and photography. The most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus. I believe what the Bible teaches about taking care of our body and it is a temple for the Lord and made by Him. Stress and losses over the past two years has put me into an unusal sadness, inactivity and emotional eating. As a result, I have a battle ahead of me to start caring for myself again and enjoying the things that I have enjoyde all of my life. I appreciate the encouragment found at Spark People as well as the stories all of you are sharing. Thanks, Spunkyjoy
