2021 Choose HOPE and JOY and Be Strong and of Good courage - I am a Wife, Momma, prayer warrior. 72 year old with at least 40 more pounds to lose ...Half our county calls me "Miss Linda" from my nursing and daycare work, retiring in 2011...Happily married for 43+ years...Have a beautiful 40 yr old daughter that Married wonderful fella in 11/18 and delivered their first child 1/2020. As I age. I'm wanting to be a good example for family as well as healthy for life.
Intro to Sparks in 11/09; Health efforts escalated following heart stents in 5/14. In12/15 I had 8.5 hr spinal and back reconstruction and I fight to maintain mobility through the progressive neuropathy I am so thankful I am not in a wheelchair yet and not wearing diapers as first doctor predicted. I met my goal of walking a 5K with two canes 6/16. All that surgery and stress and aging resulted in some memory loss and slower thinking and speech. Last changes in medical Dx was Oct 2017 Pre-Diabetic and 2018 Congestive heart failure with sloppy heart valves and aortic aneurism. God is good and the sun is shining - Be strong in faith and of good courage and live an abundant life!!!

    New chapter in Sparking - setting priority of health in my personal life again - setting boundaries in amount of time on computer and more on living, exercise movements and positive thinking -
    I have had so many death losses this winter and needing to lift above the grief and comfort eating to health and peace with some family members, love for some unlovable ones and JOY in my heart, life and speech. God is Good all the time!!!
