Reached that first "Goal!" I feel "FANTASTIC" and very "HAPPY". Now to tackle the last 5 lbs. This site is wonderful, can find "Inspiration" every day.

    Hi! It's been quite some time. Though I check in on SP every day, I haven't been on the social boards much lately, so this is me, catching up! Hope things have been going well for you and yours!

    You touched my heart with your high praise of my poetry.
    We both know that Heaven opened their gates and welcomed them home with love and promises of a glorious life in Heaven.
    When you think of your loved one memories make you smile and cry but they are tears of remembrance not of total sadness.
    We are truly never alone as long as we have them in our hearts.
    Email me any time.
    May the joy of our friendship sustain you and keep you safe.
