A huge thank you to Spark People and all my spark friends and team mates who have been a constant source of encouragement and support on my journey! I have come and gone a few times, and I slipped a bit from my path at times but this is a journey and I know that with consistency and motivation and by making healthy choices each day, I can be a healthier person! I am so grateful for Spark People and all the amazing people that are on this path with me to a healthier lifestyle!

Purple is the color that symbolizes pancreatic cancer and also happened to be one of my mother's favorite colors. I am coloring my page purple in honor of Mom...Mom passed away on April 12, 2013 after a long and courageous battle of more than 6 1/2 years with pancreatic cancer. I was so blessed to have had such a wonderful Mom. I miss her terribly but am so thankful that she is now free of pain and suffering and she leaves behind her wonderful legacy to her 3 children and 15 grand children. I will love you always Mom and I see your sweet spirit in the faces of your grand children and know that we all have a special angel named Lu in Heaven watching over us and guiding us.

As I struggle through the grieving process I will be writing about the experience in my blog. My hope is that this might help someone else who is going through the sadness and grief of losing a friend or loved one, or even the loss of life as they once knew it. Grieving can take many forms during our life here on earth.

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens. Ecclesiastes 3:1

Turn Turn Turn ( to Everything There Is a Season) was adapted from the book of Ecclesiastes (3:1) by Pete Seeger in 1959. In 1965 The Byrds recording went to #1 on the Billboard 100.

    I appreciate your encouraging comment on my blog, thank you!

    I noticed that you did a 10 day detox with great results. I did a 14 day fresh juice detox fast & had great results. I gained energy, clarity & slept through the night. Drinking warm lemon water every morning is now my morning ritual & the detox bath is a treat!

    Bonnie, thanks for stopping by my blog. I am still here on SP. Haven't missed many days since 2008. I need to lose more weight than when I joined. I hate to think of how much I would weigh had I not been Sparking though. I'm in losing mode right now. Not fast but some. It's good having you back.
