Everyone’s on the blogging bandwagon so I thought I would hop on board.  I am a wife, mother and grandmother (people say I don’t look old enough to have grandchildren – I think they’re just being nice).  I also come from a huge family – the kind people write books about – huge.  I have 4 sisters and 4 brothers; add me into the mix and that’s 9.  Don’t forget the spouses, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren – well, you get the picture.  Our mom and dad are in heaven, but they left each of us with a wonderful legacy – a love of family.  My siblings and I made a promise to each other that we would have a family reunion every year.  This marks our 8th year of reunions, each sibling taking a turn planning it.  It’s lots of fun, fellowship and food.  All of our family get-togethers seem to revolve around food.  Our parents were both amazing cooks and passed on to all of us a love of cooking and eating.  These days I’m trying to eat healthier, so that’s why I’ve started this “I Want to Be Healthy” blog.  As I start that downhill slide to the other side, I find aches, pains and ailments creeping in.  I don’t want to end like that.  I want to end well, not only in how I live and love, but in my health and well-being.  The Apostle John said, “I pray that you would prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.”  I want that too!

The photo below is of my grandchildren, the absolute loves of my life.  I want to be around to see their children.   So here’s to good health for all of us.

Update – December, 2012. Our oldest daughter had her baby boy on December 9 – Rowan Knox Kirkpatrick! To even things up our son and daughter-in-law are adopting three little girls from the Democratic Republic of the Congo!  For their story click here: An International Adoption Story. That will give us eight grandchildren: 4 boys and 4 girls!
