MJ's Spark of Hope

Hi, I'm Mary Jo. I live in Alabama. I joined SP 3-22-11 because I needed a lifestyle change. My doctor gave me an ultimatum and basically said either I lose weight, change the way I've been eating & start exercising or I would be prescribed cholesterol & diabetes medication. Oh! Did I mention this happy news came on my 41st birthday?? LOL So, needless to say....I have started that lifestyle change. It is not a diet for me. If I think of it as a diet I will Do It Every Time and start over again ...

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

A long time ago , a mother prepared for Christmas Eve. She cleaned and scrubbed her home, chasing the spiders from the living room with her broom. The spiders fled to the attic and listened to the excitement below as the Christmas tree was put up and decorated. When all was quiet again, the little spiders crept back downstairs to see the beautiful tree. They were filled with happiness as they crawled along every branch, admiring the glittering beauty of each ornament. But alas, by the time they had finished climbing through the tree, it was completely draped with their dusty, gray cobwebs.

When the Christ child came, He smiled as He looked upon the happy little spiders, however, He knew the mother would be heartbroken when she saw the shrouded tree. So He reached out and touched the webs and, blessing them, turned them into silver and gold. Now the Christmas tree sparkled and shimmered and was even more beautiful than before. Thus the custom to have tinsel of silver and gold and a spider ornament among the other decorations on the Christmas tree was born.

Hi There! I just saw your comments on my blog. I'm so glad you are back. I remember seeing late last year that you were struggling so I am really glad you've come back. It seems lots of people struggle getting over that hump to onederland. I'm not quite there and I HOPE I don't have that issue, but I'm sort-of prepared.

Good luck getting back on track! You can do it. Try not to let yourself get discouraged. We're all learning along the way.
