Hi Florence,
I read your spark secret, and was motivated!
I ran a day care for years. What an awesome opportunity to influence children, and be home to raise your own!

Hi Florence. Did you see we both put in for the ABC's at the grocery store a C word at the exact time. That has happened twice in a couple of days. Glad you are here with us. Talk with you more next time. Hugs, Betty emoticon

Your comments touched my heart. I, too, have been a caregiver for most of my life. I used to take care of my brother and sister even as a child, so it has been ongoing. My yesterdays are gone and I lost myself along the way. I forgive myself for never loving myself. I release the past and today is my day, my turn. And so loving myself has been hard. And telling extended family no, it's my turn. I hope and pray that today is your turn for yourself. Take time today to love yourself and give yourself the tenderest of care. You deserve it and don't quit Spark People. We all need you here!
Much love, Laura
