I am a Christian and my priority is to live my life as God wants me to. When God is in control everything will work out. My family is very important to me.
I have several health issues, but choose not to let them control my life any more than necessary. I need to lose about 20 lbs to get back to a healthy weight. My highest weight was about 185 lbs. I lost the ability to walk and the lbs. packed on. With WW, lots of determination I lost 45 lbs. Since than I have really had to work on keeping it off. With thyroid issues it makes it harder, but I know it can be done.
I like getting to know people of all ages. Everyone has something to offer.
I collect cherished teddies and like teddy bears in general.

    I found you through a 'mutual friend' and was VERY blessed by your opening sentence: "I am a Christian and my priority is to live my life as God wants me to." Looking forward to being friends.

    Hi Donna,
    We went to Cozumel and Progresso on the cruise but I enjoyed the days at sea almost more than the ports, it was just so nice to be out there with no worries and everything taken care of. Where did you go?
