My main goal is to be healthy. I don't have a lot of weight to lose, but it seems very difficult for me to do that now. I know age has something to do with that, and I also have hypothyroidism. Nothing is impossible with the right attitude and determination. "I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me."

Personal Information:
I live on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee. I have 6 grandchildren and 7 step grandchildren. I enjoy reading, crocheting, cooking, and gardening, and being with family. I enjoy living where we can enjoy the 4 seasons and the different beauties each one brings. I live on a small farm in a very rural area. We have some angus cows, some goats, and a doberman who thinks she is the boss. I am a retired school teacher having taught kindergarten the last several years. I love God and church is important to me. For several years, I was the church pianist. After my first husband died, I remarried. I moved to a different church and don't play now, but I sing in the choir and occasionally sing a solo. I took a few art classes and enjoy doing acrylics. I've also done some watercolor and pastels. This has become a great release for me


Other Information:
I went skydiving for my 72nd birthday. Would love to do again.
I have no support at home and rely on Spark Friends for encouragement and support.
