Some days I feel like the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 69 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (FIFTY TWO YEARS!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
(So sad to add that my dear younger son, Patrick, 50, father of my three grands, died in November 2020 after battling colon cancer for four years.)
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlings.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

NEVER!

    To find people on FatSecret, you need to be on the web page not the app. Go to the site and in the top left hand corner you will see a search. Hit the drop down box on the left and select members. Type in the member's FatSecret name (mines Doobie) and click the magnifying glass. Maybe I'll take up FatSecret again as I see Caz and Helene are on there. I've sent you a SparkMail by the way :)

    . . . the inevitable losses and hurts (in life) of being a human being give us access to the humility and empathy we need to be fully human and able to connect w/others and be of service. Morgana Rae

    After logging on to FS, in the right hand menu click on My Groups.
    When that page opens, under the heading My Groups, there will be a gray bar across the page. At the far right of that bar, on the top of the bar, in very tiny letters is Find Groups. This is an active link that will take you to all the FS groups. When I click on the link here, Sparkle and Shine is on the first page. I hope this helps. Hope to see you there.

    . . . nobody can tell me what my future holds except me. It isn’t created yet. I am creating it moment by moment in a grand fashion. And it just keeps getting better. Jean Adrienne
