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 74 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 has just recently graduated from college, son and his wife that reside in Arkansas and have grown sons who have given me a great-grandson and a great-granddaughter. I am further blessed with a guardian angel son who is no longer with us here on earth but will always be in my heart.

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

I was diagnosed with C.O.P.D. in 2001 and have been on supplemental oxygen since 2015 and heart disease/surgery in
2019. I firmly believe my years on Spark has helped with these life challenges and continue to help me live a more healthy lifestyle.
