Hi Everyone, I'm here looking for help and support as I have none from family & friends. I came across "SPARKPEOPLE" and looks like a really great place to be.
Leave the rest to God!
'Be kinder than necessary,
For everyone you meet
Is fighting some kind of battle.' ~~

The bow cannot be always bent without fear of breaking. Repose is as needful to the mind as sleep to the body... Rest time is not waste time. It is economy to gather fresh strength.....Charles Spurgeon

And finally, I want to acknowledge that making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin. ...Stephen Cherniske, M.S

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us,
but by how we react to what happens,
not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.
A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts,
events and outcomes.
It is a catalyst, a Spark that creates extraordinary results.
