I am happiest when my family is gathered around me. I am fortunate that all my 3 grown children and 9 grandchildren all live within 20 miles of me. We are a close family that meets at least once a month, if there are no birthdays or other occasions to celebrate we have Theme dinners where everyone must bring a dish for that theme. Food has always played a large part of our lives, it seems every gathering involves food. I am usually very busy with one project or another. I scrapbook, use the computer often, read, and shuffle from one grandchild to another. I am diabetic and have been challenged to find the skills needed to live a healthy and enjoyable life and am proud to be succeeding.
