Dear Friend:

If one day you feel like crying, call me. I don't promise that I will make you laugh, but I can cry with you. If one day you want to run away, don't be afraid to call me. I don't promise to ask you to stop, but I can run with you. If one day you don't want to listen to anyone, call me. I promise to be there for you but also promise to remain quiet. But one day if you call and there is no answer, come fast to see me. Perhaps I need you. Send this to all your friends, no matter how often you talk or how close you are and send it to the person who sent it to you. Let old friends know you haven't forgotten them, and tell new friends you never will. Remember, everyone needs a friend. Don't ever leave the one you love for the one you like because the one you like will leave you for the one they love. Did you know... There are 20 angels in the world, 10 are sleeping, 9 are playing, and 1 is reading this

Send this to 10 friends [including me]. If you get more than 5 back then someone you love will surprise you somehow..

Thank you, Amellia!
Peace & Love,

Dear Amellia, thanks for the rose. It reminds me of my new home.There is a huge climbing rose bush in the yard with beautiful and fragrant pink roses.

I am kind of moving all month. Not too much at a time. At the end of the month I will rent a truck to move my big stuff. I am doing better emotionally, and I intend to be more vigilant in my food life style when I get moved. I am either between one place or another lately, and I've been fast fooding it way too much. I will get back on track when I have a refrigerator to fill with all the fresh veggies I love.

I intend to do for me more when I get moved. I will set up my easel and paint! I am looking forward to all of that. I saw my friend Birdie on Sunday morning. She is so excited about me living there! I will be glad when the moving is over.

Take care my friend, and thanks for the encouragement.

Hi Amellia, Loved my rose!!! Thanks so much!

Here is what my leader of the SBD team had to say about the fruits:
Fruit isn't allowed because of the sugar in the fruit and when detoxing, fruit can trigger cravings or keep cravings going. Hence the 2 weeks without and then slowly adding. Sometimes you will find some fruits are just fine whereas others may be sweet enough to make you crave.

It seems to be working for me so far, I'm not craving the sweets I use to eat so much anymore. I'm eating a lot more veggies also!!

Your such a great friend ..... Janice

Hello, sweet friend!
I have been in the process of moving for the last few weeks. I have to do it slowly due to all my health and "bone" problems. I moved too much last weekend and have spent most of this week bedridden. I am moving to Toledo, OH. I was born there and spent a lot of years there when my kids were young. It feels like I'm going home.
I have a bit of excitement for today. A girl that was my best friend in high school became a quite well-known singer since those days. I have several of her CD's. Well, it appears she is to be here in Ann Arbor for a performance tonight! I haven't seen her in 30 years, and I'm so excited. I've seen pictures of her, and other than cutting her hair short she looks pretty much the same to me. She has such a beautiful voice! I can't wait. So, I suppose I should attempt to clean the kitchen floor (the only chore I scheduled for today due to my back) and then start preparing me for tonight. It seems to take longer and longer to get me "beautiful" anymore!
Thank you for your concern. I have just been really busy.

You have been tagged with a never-ending spark! Hold it close to your heart and share it with friends who are in need. The goal is to send it on to two more sparkers who have not yet received it! Let's see how far we can spread the spark today!

Thanks for my hit on Spark page! You are doing fantastic!!
