Just for today

Just for today, I''m going to make healthy choices in my life. I''ll worry about tomorrow when it becomes today. I can do ANYTHING "just for today." I believe that my history is NOT my destiny. At any given moment I have the power to say this it not how the story is going to end.

I reached my Spark goal in 2011, losing 75 lb. via good nutrition, cardio & strength. My goal for 2015 is to be joyful and live life to the fullest!

Mimi, WELCOME BACK to SP! I have missed you so much! My deepest sympathy and sorrow reach out to you in the loss of your beloved mother. I am hoping the following poem may bring you an inner peace that you and your mother are forever connected by an invisible string from her eternal heart to your earthly one.


I am gone now, but I'm still very near.
Death can never separate us.
Each time you feel a gentle breeze,
It is my hand caressing your face.
Each time the wind blows,
It carries my voice whispering your name.
When the wind blows your hair ever so slightly,
Think of it as me pushing a few stray hairs back in place.
When you feel a few raindrops fall on your face,
It is me placing soft kisses.
At night look up in the sky and see the stars shining so brightly.
I am one of those stars and I'm winking at you and smiling with delight.
For never forget you're the apple of my eye.

(written by: Mary M. Green)


If you ever need a listening ear, healing words, caring shoulders and comforting hugs .... I am here for you. You are NEVER alone. Embracing you in hugs.

Today you were given a gift that many were not given – the gift of life. Every moment that we are allowed to stay on this earth is a gift which should not be taken for granted. Sandra Smith
