I am 65 years old and a breast cancer survivor, Had an illiostomy in 2007 when chemo shredded my colon. I was told it was not reversable but I recently found a surgeon who was able to fashion a small colon out of my small intestine. Its different but working good & I am very happy with the results. I have 3 children, 2 adults and 1 taken from us by a drunken driver when she was 18. My wonderful hubby and I have been married for 45 years. I am looking to improve my health and grow old gracefully.
I continue to meet small goals that I have set for myself with the help of Spark People. So far after8 months I am down 25 lbs. and have reached my goal.

    Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, "This is the real me," and when you have found that attitude, follow it.

    "May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”

    There's a lesson in everything we do, if we just have eyes to see it. It's not what happens to us that matters as much as how we take the experience and make something of it.

    "May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always understand. May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone. May you discover enough goodness in others to believe in a world of peace. May a kind word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and may you give these gifts as well as receive them. Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending". ...unknown
