You are a grandma!!! congratulations!! that blessing is not yet mine, nor may be destined in this life time, but at least i get to be a "Great Aunt" - thank you for commenting on my blog. What a beautfiul encouraging soul you are.

I have not been on "sparkies" for a long long time and have the weight GAIN to prove it. This year turned out to be more challenging than I could have expected. And yet - a total blessing.

Because: every day above the lawn is a good day. And because "the greatest gift of life, is right under your nose - Breathe in - it's your breath!" (Maharaji)

so Namaste to you to and to your entire beautiful familiy during this blessed time - called 'the miracle journey of life.'

love always! emoticon

Hi sweets!

I had JUST noticed your "second 1-hr. hike" comment! WAY TO GO VAL! I'm in such an "up hill" period of self-care right now. Everything seems to be an "UGH!"

Hey, I had no idea you are the leader of the Awakening Team?! That must be a recent change, right, or am I totally losing it (heh heh)???

Love hearin' from you, dear one!

Blessed be!
