Decided my page needed an update. Everything on here was still valid, hower let’s just freshen it up, start anew.

Hubby and I and our dog, moved to Annapolis valley NS this summer after 22 years in the city. It wasn’t our intention but life happens, this time was breast cancer. Thankful it was only in the duct, lumpectomy with clear margins, some radiation and “ they say” that I am fine. Well never the same after a cancer diagnosis. I have to see my dr every 3 months for the next 5 yrs. so that put a stop in our full time rving idea. However, we did get out of the city, quieter, calmer area, walking more, eating better.

I have missed spark, but got caught up in fb and pinterest. Oh how I can dream on pinterest! So decided slow wayyyy down on FB. Organize my pinterest ideas and get back here. So many have left, many are still here.

Started eating well after my dx, did great till started selling house, pack, move etc. Been here 5 months and oh past month and half been eating well. Sooo low in sugar and grains. However eating lot more veggies.

I have been deamed a sp motivator... guess it’s my perseverance! But now it’s going to be cos I reach my goals. A few more arthritis isdues to deal with, learning to adapt exercises so don’t wreak my rotator cuff more, hurt my hips etc. But hey if there’s the will there’s a way... and with a few “always there for me SP friends “ I will succeed.

My 60th birthday was 2 wks after being told I had cancer. A scary time, this year has bought anout a lit of changes. One very important one is I have learned how strong I can be. If I can fight cancer, I can certainly fight a cookie or muffin!

So thanks to old friends, welcome new!
Loving myself, my life and my dreams.

    Climb The Mountain


    I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
    I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
    I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
    I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
    I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
    I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
    He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
    "I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
    " The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
    "I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
    I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."Author unknown
