Well this is my first blog on here .. ive been just jumping around checking you all out! lol this place is awsome... Ive looked up alot of things from weight and debt and just feeling good about yourself.. I am the Mother of two teenagers.. I have always been in contact with my kids..knew from what day to the next what they were doing and going.. My son graduated this year.. its hard for me to not always know where he is..at first it bothered me that i cried.. alot.. then one day I didnt care where he was... I figured he would come home.. and sure enough he did (for supper!) and I have a beautiful daughter she is 16 free spirtied and loving .. and caring... she is is my left hand.. my hubby is my right hand.. they between the two of them are what keeps me going... she is starting to grow up sooo fast its hard.. she is my best friend... and i love her to death!(my son and i are to much alike..and we argue alot.. so i only talk to him when i have to..but he comes to me with his problems and so does my daughter...So to make a long story short my life was my kids.. then one day i changed jobs.. I work at a hospital... and its full of girls.. so we go out.. and over the year ive learned how to pamper myself..and im feeling good about it..now if i could just lose weight id feel great!and then i found your site.. and what ive learned is... 41 can be great...! especially when my pedicure man thought i was my daughters sister! lol
anyway ive come along way and now this site will help me even more.. and im telling everyone i know about it...thanks so much yani!look for more ramblings.. i do it alot!!lol

    • Life can only get better. Seriously, I am in better shape physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually that I have ever been. I can’t wait to see how good I am when I turn 50!!!!
      As women I think we spend so much time taking care of everyone else that we get empty and if we don’t take care of ourselves on all levels we end up with nothing more to give.  I start my day at 4:30 am with God and my Bible and I do things for myself that I never did before, like this website and Bible Studies. I love to read and am beginning to read some of the classics. I used drugs for so long that I missed out on a lot of my teenage years. Maybe that’s why I love teenagers so much. I think I’m going to my son’s senior prom!!!  LOL

    • It’s great to hear that you are so close with your family!  It may be odd at first not knowing where your son is all the time, but if your family is as close as it sounds, he’ll always know that there is a place for him at home.  I come from a big family too, and although we are all wrapped up in our own lives, we definitely know that we will always be there for each other, and that we can always find each other at home!

    • Welcome to our community! I am so happy to hear that you are close with your children, that is one of the most important things in life that puts a smile on my face from day to day.

      Being over 40 is the best time in your life, and I am so glad that you have realized that on this site! The women here are caring, talented, supportive, each an individual in their own special way, and help motivate one another so that we can grow and learn together!

      Your husband is a lucky man to have such an incredible wife. You keep doing what you are doing, and with a big smile!
