September 2013: I have lost steadily and tracked my food and have lost about 25 pounds since my highest weight of 288. On the way to 150. I am 61, in the middle of a divorce, and have ...

I just responded to your sparkmail. Then I went and looked at your food tracker. I think I see some issues.

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.
