emoticon for reading and commenting on my blog stop and smell the flowers. With all that is happening in the news today, isn't it a nice welcome to hear about someone doing something really decent. I really didn't expect to get such a response. I am glad I could brighten member's day. This was sent to me in an email. I have no idea who the family is or the postal worker. Whoever they are bless them. Have a nice weekend. emoticon

Thank you so much for your comments on my recent blog “Congratulations – you have won 86,400…” I have been overwhelmed and honoured by the response and receiving a popular blog award.
In the past three weeks my mother-in-law passed away at 93, my brother-in-law had open heart surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm and my son’s mother-in-law has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and is undergoing radical surgery tomorrow.
Together with these events, the article came to my inbox as a timely reminder to me that our time here is numbered and every minute that we are given is too precious to waste on unimportant negativity.
As Sparkie friends, we are sharing the journey to focus on being as healthy as possible and finding a successful balance in our lives – through healthy eating, exercise and happy relationships – I just wanted to share the article with everyone and I am humbled that it also resonated with so many others.
Thanks for your support and best wishes for much happiness in the future.

Thanks for commenting on my Trikke vlog. The Roadster model that we have is more challenging than the other models (Roadster is meant for advanced riders). So, we are having a challenge getting it to go up even the slightest incline! The fun part is, even the slightest decline let's you go like the wind! It's alot of fun, but a workout!
