Welcome to my Beautiful life in N.Michigan! it was my dream always to live here and here i am in the middle of GOD,S Country! if it wasnt for my Brother and hero i wouldnt be here! We moved here seven years a go after Mom passed over and we couldnt keep both houses and Brother Thomas said lets go-o and off we flew we sold the old house and moved! He had a disability (M.S) but we moved any way... to him it was not a disability and to this day it is amazing how he lived with this with such grace ...
Welcome to my Beautiful life in N.Michigan! it was my dream always to live here and here i am in the middle of GOD,S Country! if it wasnt for my Brother and hero i wouldnt be here! We moved here seven years a go after Mom passed over and we couldnt keep both houses and Brother Thomas said lets go-o and off we flew we sold the old house and moved! He had a disability (M.S) but we moved any way... to him it was not a disability and to this day it is amazing how he lived with this with such grace well three years a go he passed over and suddenly from Sepsis and i was devastated cause he was my Hero and best friend and i didnt know how i could go on with out him! He was my rock but GOD pulled me up and out and said i could do this on my own and here i am and a day doesnt go by i don,t think of my brother and know he is here whether its the red tailed hawk flying over me or a butterfly that wont leave me alone He is here... he keeps me going along with the love of GOD and i am Grateful i asked and received grace to go on and can do what the Creator wants to do with my life and i never know what i will be up to next .... but its been one heck of a Great flight in this path and loving and being with the people who are down and out is my job now before i was a volunteer @ the local nursing home and being with the dying and sad people but needed to move on but They helped me also! Im solo now but never alone and on my flight to better my self and to be Healthy and Holy... Thats what we are all meant to be... Fly with me on the journey of our lives....

Friends are golden rays of sunlight emoticon
.....when we need warmth.
..........the cool comfort of shade
...............when we need rest.
The silver path of moon emoticon glow
......when we feel lost and need to find our way in this world!
The gift of your friendship is more precious to me than any words could say!

So for this Tuesday "pep talk"....stay true to the Spark plan you have prepared for the week ahead. Get moving and enjoy this wonderful summer weather. Keep taking steps--both big and small--to reach your goal!

Thank you for the kind message! I hope everything went well at the community garden, Bonnie! Surely you sweat off a pound or two!!!!


Do you ever have those days when building time for exercise/fitness seems impossible? Here is a simple suggestion to manage at least 30 minutes of fitness time by lunch:

5 - 10 minutes before work
5 minutes morning break
5 - 10 minutes before lunch
5 - 10 minutes during lunch break

Frederick Speakman shares a quotation which speaks volumes regarding our journey, "Decisions determine destiny". Make great choices today to stay on track to achieve your weight loss goals!
