It's never too late to grow a little wiser

Hi! My name is Lynn. I live with my spouse and three Chihuahuas in Phoenix AZ.

Like many here, I joined SparkPeople.com to lose weight/diet (yuch - I hate that four letter word!). Now I use "manage my health".

After listening and reading a lot on this website, I decided I didn't need a diet. I learned I needed to develop a healthy lifestyle. I just didn't know what I was getting myself out of and into :-)

Hi! My name is Lynn. I live with my spouse and three Chihuahuas in Phoenix AZ.

Like many here, I joined SparkPeople.com to lose weight/diet (yuch - I hate that four letter word!). Now I use "manage my health".

After listening and reading a lot on this website, I decided I didn't need a diet. I learned I needed to develop a healthy lifestyle. I just didn't know what I was getting myself out of and into :-)

I just rewrote my goals, modifying my program to be reasonable and achievable. The hardest part is realizing I am talking changing daily, little by little so that at some point, the changes aren't changes anymore - it is simply the way I live.

In the process, I get to meet a lot of fantastic people (yes, I am talking about you!), get healthy, and have fun.

Who knew I would be so blessed?!

I believe that God brings certain people into our lives for a reason.
Sometimes, it's to help us see something new and wonderful.
Sometimes, it's to encourage us and to strengthen our faith.
And sometimes, it's just to remind us that we are never truly alone.

Whatever purpose God had in bringing us together,
I'm just grateful that He did....

You've been a real source of understanding and happiness in my life and it means more to me than I can ever say to have the gift of your friendship and caring.

Has anyone told you lately just how amazing you are??
Its about time you heard it again.
I hear you saying, "Who me?"
I'm saying right back, "Yep, you.

You...
the one doing your thing,
making your difference,
being a glorious mess that God can use.

You... getting back up when you fall down, trying again when it doesn't work out, doing the hard, the different, taking those steps of faith.

You... wonderfully made just like you are, and on your way to becoming all He made you to be. I see you squirming in that chair, squinting a little at that screen and thinking,"That's for others but I'm not so sure about me." Believe it, receive it, it's true. This is for YOU.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14 NIV

Wouldn't it be wonderful
If every day we're living
We stopped to count our blessings
Like we do on Thanksgiving?
If every day we took the time
For gratefully expressing
Our thankfulness for every joy
And every little blessing...
Wouldn't it be wonderful
If we would just remember
Gratitude's a year-round thing
Not only for November!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Wishing you many blessings to count and many joys to remember
this Thanksgiving Day and all the days that follow! Your support and encouragement has been a real blessing in my journey!
