13 years of striving to live a more healthy life through all the wonderful resources offered here on Sparkpeople. Many good days and many no so good days but still here and learning something new each and every day and have enjoyed the many online friendships with team members.

I am a 73 year old baby boomer born, raised, and currently living in the "Show-Me State of Missouri", after a twenty year journey as a military wife. I recently semi-retired from the field of rental property management by working in the office only 3 days a week.

I am a proud mother & grandmother and great grandmother. My daughter lives just a few miles from me, a granddaughter who will graduate from college in May, son and his wife that reside in Arkansas with two their two sons and a grandson and a grandaughter. I am further blessed with a guardian angel son who is no longer with me on but is always in my eart.

I love motivational quotes and Sparkpeople has several that I enjoy and try to implement in my daily life.
