“Whatever you are doing, keep it up!” Those were the words of my rheumatologist 20+ years ago after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called ‘ankylosing spondylitis.’ X-rays revealed my spine to be 100% fused, with pain and stiffness.

I defied the doomsday diagnoses given by an orthopedist 35 years ago, “Be prepared to be disabled and in a wheelchair by the time you are in your forties!”

To that I replied, ‘NO I won't! So, in keeping with my rheumatologist’, I did what he recommended. I stayed mobile and kept moving! I am now 74 and worked full time, in very physically demanding job—and retired in my 70th year.

The awful prophecy did not come to pass, as the Dr. Grim said. I never made plans for anything but happiness and a fulfilled life—and that is what has come to pass!

I love retirement, except I found a new career which is writing! I have added Author to my nursing career. More below.

    1.There's a reason for our tomorrows . . . so we can improve from yesterday
    2“One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged.”
    - Lucille Ball –
    3"Good things come to those who "weight" or at least go slower in their journey!"

    4 Every day is a new chance to take steps towards reaching our goals! Keep doing your best, and never give up. Always remember that you are worth the effort

    5 Love yourself for who you are right now


    6 If you FAIL, never give up because F.A.I.L. means "First Attempt In Learning."

    7.END is not the END. In fact, E.N.D. means "Effort Never Dies."
    If you get NO as an answer, remember N.O. means "Next Opportunity."


    8 BE POSITIVE ALWAYS and bring your perfect smile with you. A spark friend
