Hello Peeps, Goodbye 2014....Bring it 2015!

Man have I missed YOU GUYS! MY fault..I know, I know...
I've been working back at Mack Truck. Though not driving, just in HOT warehouse pulling parts, I lost 40 lbs. between Feb and August, from nothing but doing my job and sweating my butt off, but I'll take that!
2014 has been yet another trainwreck of a year. Nick (16) and Daniel (14) are actually doing great. Doug got injured at work in Sept., had surgery on shoulder (again) and then Oct. 30th I broke a bone chunk off the ...

2014 has been yet another trainwreck of a year. Nick (16) and Daniel (14) are actually doing great. Doug got injured at work in Sept., had surgery on shoulder (again) and then Oct. 30th I broke a bone chunk off the bottom of my foot, so BOTH out on WC. which sucks.
My older brother Vince (my older twin) passed away Nov. 23 right before Thanksgiving, so here we go again in the whirlwind of depression and dealing. He had a heart attack, age of 55, no symptons, healthy guy. Had just retired in Jan. of 14 after 20 years at Harley Davidson. We are still in shock and just devesated.
Lost Dad 2 years ago and we had just gotten to where we could talk an laugh about him without losing it. I have been spending a lot of time with Mom, we ALL took it hard, but are just breathing in and out at this point. So needless to say this past 2 holidays have been HORRIBLE....Though our sons DID have Christmas this year, they got COAL last year, (2nd time, lol).....So I am REALLY gonna try to stay "around", I need some time to heal and just figure it out.......He was the happiest person Ive ever known....and just BOOM...Gone........So I have more than one fresh start to make.
I have missed all my Sparks Peeps and I look forward to catching up to the ones that are still here!!! Peace Out for today!

I came across this on one of my book markers,
So I thought I would share this with you.

""DON'T QUIT""

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won, had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure, turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It maybe near, when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight, when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worse, that you must not quit.
(author unknown)

Have a Fabulous February!!

******THE ROAD OF LIFE HAS MANY TURNS******

Sometimes the road of life takes us to a place we had planned....

Sometimes it shows us a surprise around the bend we could never have anticipated. We make decisions based on the information we have...We accept our ups and downs as they come...We live "one day at a time."

But often we find it is only when we look back that we can see that what we had thought was a "wrong turn" has brought us to exactly the right place and every step was a right one after all!!

Thank you for letting me share this with you!!
