Hi! I'm the person who posted the thing about looking for new buddies. Glad to have you along! I think I made my counter thingee by editing my spark page and it came up as an option. It was a long time ago, though, so don't quote me on that. Anyway, nice to meet you!

I wanted to stop by and check on you and see how you are doing. It's been a while since you have posted. Is there anything I can do to help? Just let me know.

Howdy, I finally had time to come thank you for your comment on my sparkpage LOL.. sorry.. I get so busy with work.. (both my wife Carol and I are in wheelchairs. but we both make wonderful useful products out of wood..she carves precious wooden jewerly, and I am better at building bird house kits for children, and really neet spoon racks for collectors & we're working on a course in web design presently so we can get one up and running LOL)..but.. firstly.. involved with SP and getting jokes together for the Jokes topic in OVERCOMING OBSTACLES ("O.O." for short)..forum, just to make sure we're all laughing on this journey together, I sometimes think "cool, I got a comment from a sparkfriend" I'll get it right after I do this..then "this" comes along..and oops..something else comes up LOL.. well.. better late then never at all right? lol.. well, at least you know where to find me.. (under "JOKES FOR OUR FAMILY") LOL

.. take care, and I look forward to reading your posts, even though I don't respond too much, is cuz I'm not really quick at typing or spelling (being French & all).. but doesn't mean I do not read them, and consider them.

oh.. yes.. lol in answer to your question, We live in Toronto, (eastern) but originally come from Welland, only a few minutes out of Niagara Falls :o)

Hello ! I'm thrilled that you've joined us!! Warm welcomes to Overcoming Obstacles!" (A place where people share successes, personal stories, insight, motivation, jokes, recipes, common goals and LOVE) I can recommend reading some of the past posts, just to become familiar with who is who, etc. Then, maybe post an obstacle you're overcoming, or have overcome. There are quite a few different topics listed, like "jokes" or "motivation", "wheres' everyone from", "weigh in room" etc.... if you like, I hope you will come and introduce yourself in the "disabilities group forum" topic, and reply to any of the ones already created. There are many little challenges posted too, to give us a little "spark". The "disabilities group forum" is the main discussion area, even though many of the team doesn't have a disability, and some do, it is for everyone to congregate in, and know they are NOT alone.
{PLEASE, FEEL FREE TO INVITE YOUR FRIENDS IN TOO :o)}

There are challenges going on every week, some are on going, some are for a week, or a month..if you would like to create a challenge , please feel free to sparkmail me by Thursday, and I am able to add it to the list of challenges on my sparkpage :o) & to have a structured schedule for every week..

~ Challenges are now listed at the bottom of my sparkpage, to make it easier to find the challenges that may suit your needs~

I want you to know, too.. I was a councellor before I ended up in my wheelchair, and if you ever want to vent, or want insight in any way at all.. I hope you will feel free and confident to contact me at any time..... sparkmail is an awesome feature :o)

I created this forum out of love, and that's what you will find.." angels who carry one another to our goals."

I really look forward to reading your posts:o)

My prayer is this: Overcoming Obstacles becomes a meeting place for every sparkpeople.com member to congregate in. (, and if time or other groups are " an obstacle" then even if it's to come and say hello, or share a smile "O.O." should be that place!.)

Love, Prayers, and TICKLES,
CAROL.

Hello. I was just browsing the site, and came across your page.
( I am hoping you will read this in it's entirety), so you don't miss any little detail.. .

I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to our team. It is called "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".
It is a forum that my wife (Tickle*Me*Pink-aka Carol) formed. At first, it was for people with a disabitliy,but now it's expanded to everyone..disability or no disability. As a matter of fact, more then 1/2 of the group do not have a disability. Carol says "well, if there are angels, they're all here because it's like a bunch of angels carrying all of us to our goals"

The link is located on my sparkpage, (it's a cartoon drawing of my wife in her wheelchair, with a dalmation chasing some diet soda balloons LOL she drew it herself!) and the main discussion room is still named "disabilties group".
People post their successes in life,their obstacles, their personal stories, motivation to succeed, advice, different health obstacles, parents' topics, different age rooms, losing baby fat, books insight, crafts, literary, recipes, motivation..etc.etc..and there's even a thread for jokes(to name only a few).. There are many little challenges posted , to give us a little added "spark", too.. (maybe you can come up with a challenge too--all you need to do is to contact Tickle*Me*Pink through sparkmail or check out her sparkpage..)..if you don't feel up to a challenge for now, you will definately find comfort and encouragement in any of the rooms you browse in...

I was hoping that you will click the link, join the group, and come to post in the main room,("disabilities group forum") & maybe share some of your own successes,obstacles, goals, etc..for us to all get aquainted,better. As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.

I hope you will click on my sparkpage, and add a comment if you need any questions answerred. (or you can sparkmail Carol or myself..we are more then willing to help)

Jack
p.s.(sometimes, my message I want to put on your page may come out more then once. If this does happen, please forgive me in advance,sparkmail me to let me know, so I don't do it again.. also, I am French, and try my best to translate to English, so I wrote this before I found your page, so I could spell check it, and copy and paste it here for you, once it was okay. If there are still some mistakes, I appologize.)

.I admit.. this invite is a bit long..you'll be surprised though..when you read my posts in the forum..they are short.. well.. except for some of the jokes..which I am trying to shorten LOL (I just wanted to tell you as much as I could here, to make you comfortable and familiar and to feel welcomed){actually so much more I could say about the O.O forum..just don't want to take up all that space}

We hope to welcome you!
(my wish is that everyone on sparkpeople has a place to meet.(.wether they attend to other groups,that's always okay)..but I feel it is important that there is a place like that.. this is why I'm so THRILLED TO INVITE YOU TO "O.O."
PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you..I know they'll be almost as delighted as we are to welcome you to the" place where people with "spark" or.. as Carol says it so well "place where angels congregate"!!
