Retired. No longer working due to health issues. I live in Las Vegas. I love reading and playing with my IPad. I believe in the power of positivity and try to seek out the positive in every day.

My Mantra: “Every day may not be good but there is something good in every day.”

July 2020

Six months of this year gone already. Quite frankly not how I envisioned my year going. This has been a bad year for me so far. Due to illness, I had to give up my part time job. Didn’t like that but in light of Covid19, it’s not as hard as I thought it would be.

Unfortunately, my illness remains ‘undefined’ so I had to curtail my activities so I am pretty much winging it at this point. More tests for the month of July. Hopefully I will have some closure at the end of the road. That’s what I’m looking forward to anyway.

Don’t know what lies ahead but you have to keep moving forward.

Have as good of a month as you can make it, Spark Friends.

    I didn't get the chance to know you as I've only been back on spark a few weeks, I read you last blog and then I realize what you had to go through this last almost two months. Rest Easy, although we weren't friends we are sisters in Christ and sisters on this website. Praying for your family members and friends who are grieving. Even losing friends is hard. emoticon

    I don't even know what to say. So sorry to hear the news of Pam's passing.

    She was such a positive soul even when dealing with lots of health issues.

    You will be missed, Spark Friend.

    Pam I hope that the word of your passing is not true. And to have another word of faith and happiness from you. You were one of my favorite positive people in this crazy world. You encouraged so many to do their best. I can only hope that I will get to hear from you again.
