Alihikes getting fit and having fun

REALLY excited about Spark and my Spark teams. I'm in my early 60s and work long hours at a stressful job, so working out and eating healthy are challenges for me sometimes. I LOVE hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing, snow shoes, and kayaking. I want to get more fit to enjoy these activities with my friends, and to have more energy (and not burn out!) on my job.

Hi Alison,

You are most welcome. I hope you don't mind me adding you as a friend.

Another Spark friend forwarded me the following poem, and when I read it I wanted to send it to you...God's Blessings

I Said A Prayer For You Today

I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart although He spoke no word.
I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind.
I asked Him to send treasurers of a far more lasting kind.
I asked that He'd be near you at the start of each new day.
To grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way.
I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.

Author Unknown

Take care - thinking of you,
Nattacia

Do you know anything about quantum physics / mechanics? I think it's a good explanation for grief. We are all interconnected, some more closely than others. And when one goes through the door into the next world . . . and we who are left behind feel like there's a hole? . . . that's because there actually is.

So don't let anyone push you or rush you or badger you as you learn to live around the edges of the hole. It's a new skill to acquire, and something that we learn only out of necessity and never a course we sign up for willingly.

Thanks! I was thinking I'd get a heart, but then I spied the owls and the clerk found two that were large enough so I said "Ok....that's what I want." :)
