I am 56 years old and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in May of this year. Trying to control it with diet and exercise and so far so good. I live in Atlanta and have been married for 3 years now to a wonderful guy. I also have 2 grown sons from my previous marriage and expecting my first grandchild in March of 2015.

Update: Time sure flies. Just celebrated my 58th birthday, I have a beautiful one year old granddaughter and still very happily married. I think I'm finally getting a handle on my weight. After my A1c just kept going higher my Dr. recommended I try Atkins. Best thing I've ever done. My wonderful husband is totally on board with me (he has done it before) and keeps me on track. I feel better then ever, more energy, blood sugar is excellent, cravings are gone. 5 weeks in now and doing fantastic. It's not always easy but with the two support groups I have joined and the help of my husband I'm starting a new way of life and a new way of eating.

    O beautiful for spacious skies,
    For amber waves of grain,
    For purple mountain majesties
    Above the fruited plain!
    America! America!
    God shed His grace on thee
    And crown thy good with brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea!

    Hope you enjoy the 4th of July!!

    For each petal on the shamrock
    This brings a wish your way -
    Good health, good luck, and happiness
    For today and every day.

    Marching In
    February bid adieu
    And March marched in, like months should do.
    It wasn’t lion-like today;
    Tomorrow, though, will roar away.

    Some shoots are poking through the ground
    While leafless branches still surround
    And robins haven’t yet appeared;
    The sparrows, though, have persevered.

    We can’t predict how March will roll.
    It’s really out of our control
    But likely, ‘fore it starts to scram,
    We’ll get a little taste of lamb.

    Thanksgiving Friends

    Thanksgiving is a time
    For reviewing what we treasure,
    The people we hold dear,
    Who give us so much pleasure.

    Without you as my friend,
    Life would be a bore;
    Having you in my life
    Is what I'm thankful for.
