I have been on SparkPeople since June of this year. Almost four months. It has been quite a learning experience! I have gone from physical therapy for ten minutes to now 55 minutes of chair exercise. I have learned how to blog and to track food and exercise. Just learning how to read the site was an accomplishment. However, most of all, I have made many Sparkfriends. So much positive support and caring comments!! Joining SparkPeople was the best decision I could have made.

I have been on SparkPeople since June of this year. Almost four months. It has been quite a learning experience! I have gone from physical therapy for ten minutes to now 55 minutes of chair exercise. I have learned how to blog and to track food and exercise. Just learning how to read the site was an accomplishment. However, most of all, I have made many Sparkfriends. So much positive support and caring comments!! Joining SparkPeople was the best decision I could have made.

I am 62 (soon 63). I have diabetes, neuropathy, retinopathy, kidney disease, heart failure and cirrhosis of the liver. I have balance problems and fall, quite a lot actually. I had become my diseases. I had given up my horse riding, my gardens and other enjoyments.

Now, though I am still in my wheel chair, I have been moving more. Spending more time with my daughters and my grandchildren. They are such a pleasure in my life.

As I continue on this journey, I have regained some time in my garden, continued my quilting, sewing, knitting and crafts. I have begun voluntary simplicity. Going through my home and removing all the collections of 'things' that I really have no use for. As a result, I am constantly going through 'tubs'. Passing on to my children items that they would have gotten anyway. It is lifting a burden of possessions from my back.

I have found my spirit again and relish the time I am able to spend on Scriptures. My faith has been renewed and I am moving forward.

“Christmas is not a time nor a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” -- Calvin Coolidge

Bless us all, that as we live
We always comfort and forgive
We have so much, that we can share
With those in need we see around us everywhere.

Wishing you and all those you hold dear a wonderful holiday season and a blessed new year.
