How do I get to the next step in my life: by looking upwards to what God wants me to do in my life instead of being sad about what I don't have as He has blessed me with a GREAT, ATTENTIVE, GIVING, HELPFUL AND LOVING CHRISTIAN HUSBAND, 2 wonderful sons who have great lives of their own and my husband is working hard to build us a wonderful, functioning home from an old schoolhouse in the country.
I am going to learn more about the state of Iowa and what it has to offer as far as traveling sites so when friends and/or family come to visit we know where to take them. We know nothing about the northeast part of this state and we may not get to explore that this year but we will the next!!

1. Death leaves a feeling that never heals;
Love leaves a feeling that no one can steal!

As far as my goals for myself, I am going to remember that it's about accepting change, learning to embrace it and use it to be a BETTER person!!! I AM!! I AM!! I AM!!

\I want to thank all of you who have made comments on my Spark Page, my Blogs, my Threads, my Goodies and my Spark Mail in helping me to become a better person physically and psychologically!! You all have been the best "doctor" I could have had in this world and I have been blessed to have you all part of my life. This site has been full of encouragement, uplifting comments, true love and hopefulness in my life and I want all who read this and, have not yet started in Sparkpeople, to give it a chance and learn what they can about the site as it is truly a gift from God to all of us and the motivational pages, health news, etc. is loaded with information for all of us in all areas of lives!! How can you beat that? We have truly been blessed by the people who designed this web for all of us to glean all we can from it and make our lives truly better!! AND, IT IS FREE!!!

So, all I can say to close is: Have at it and you can be blessed as I have! Thank you for taking the time to read this!! You have all been a blessing to me and I feel that God guided me to this site at just the PERFECT time in my life!! Thank you so much Spark!

Personal Information:
We are from the foothills of the Sierras in CALIF. but have relocated to Badger, IA.
My name is Vicki and
I am 59 years old
My b.d. is: Sept. 2nd, which makes me a Virgo and a perfectionist!! You wouldn't know that now, though! I need to not be so tough on myself!

Other Information:
A friend turned me on to mysteries by Sue Grafton which are a fast read and fun; self-help books, I have every Oprah Book Club book which many I haven't read, as yet--they are different from what I normally would choose, and that was the point!!
I love cooking, quilting, knitting and crocheting for hobbies.
I am also a big fairy collector, tea cups and saucers and also tea pots!!
We love all music with the exception of hard and acid rock-NO! NO! NO!
We love to travel and meet new friends along the way. Some of our closest friends have come to us by way of traveling. How great is that?
My husband loves working with his hands and I love to supervise him.
Cooking was a passion of mine and if my back can get fixed, I would love to cook again. We own over 400 cookbooks and my husband thinks we should start eating them for fiber!!!
