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 68 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (FIFTY ONE 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.
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.

    You are very welcome ... I love fruit salad!
    My weekend was great, thank you! Very romantic day for two at home with my sweet man for Valentine's Day. He even made me a four-course gourmet meal. YummY!!

    Have a great week ahead!

    emoticon for stopping by my page. I've never thought of myself as a hero. Just another person trying to live a healthier life. But I am so touched that you think that.

    Can I help it after the year I've had if cupid reminds me of infectious diseases? lol instead of cupid at my door I've got the grim reaper (o,O)
    Anywho. I bet next year is better and I am just glad it's over and wish my daughter would eat her box of chocolates already! It's all I can do to stay out of it....
    Thanks for being a sis. I don't have one and always thought that would be cool.
    So far I'm being pretty good. No more booze today, making a healthy soup for dinner and drinking water...
    I try to keep celery and salads around for my hungry enough to eat a pillow days which usually means I'm not getting enough protien so I keep a jar of boiled eggs around too for the salad or dump a can of cold tuna on a bed of lettuce. Ahhh. the good life ; )
