Lady, this is fantastic. I am so glad that you have started this blog. What a wonderful outlet. You know I have blogged from the beginning of blogs in various incarnations, so let me say this: Be honest, only put out there what you are truly comfortable with others knowing, and be creative. You are a wonderful writer,and a wonderful, creative, funny, and loving person. This blog could be just that, a blog, or it could evolve into something more. So proud of you.


Oprah just did a show about the NY Times bestseller, Women, Food, and God. Wonder if you might want to pick it up and review it for us? You're on a journey and it seems like food and the bigger purpose is part of that. Perhaps you and Terr can do an outing to the library?

Look at me, giving you assignments!

Looking forward to your writing and to seeing you this summer.

How lovely to read about your life. You are one of the most hilarious, creative people we all have the pleasure to know. I loved reading your Blog. Can't wait to hear more. You know how beautiful you are inside and out-I've always told you that. Losing weight-a lifelong struggle for me is always a challenge! Working out at Curves For Women has been a real asset for me. It gives me energy to do more-think clearly and see other women who just want to move their bodies. I've met large women and 84 yr. olds who come around the circuit and they inspire best of luck to a great person. It only takes 3x's a week to strengthen your muscles and then you and Terr-Bear can walk every day! Keep us posted on your road, Mandy-love you! Rusty
