If You Love Your Mom....

Tuesday, November 20, 2012


Age 4: "I love Mommy."
Age 16: "I HATE HER."
Age 20: "Mom was right"
Age 57: "I wish my Mom was still here."

Good Tuesday Sparkfam!! I pray you all are fairing well & gearing up for turkey day. Keep in mind & count your blessings each and every one of them. Especially our parents & my mom is particularly special to me. She raised us 6kids single handedly & believed in God with all her heart & soul. I am thankful for her & my aunts & uncles as well who kept us in line & loved us all very much.

What about you? I know we are thankful for things but we need to more thankful for people who have help shaped & mold us into who we are now.... We didn't do it by ourselves no matter what we tell ourself..lol

I may not be handing out food this holiday but I did give to the Greater Food Depository because they always helping out those in need.

God bless & keep you all!!

Dee

    girl asthma had me very humbled I have had it since birth and I never thought I hated my mama. She was all I had her and my father divorced when I was 4 yrs old. my father never tried to contact me or my sister. Until I was married with and pregnant with my first childhe died trying to find me. I love her she showed me how to be a mama and showed grace and patience with me . But need need to see her more. She has remarried at age 72. She does not look her age and she does not act it either. She is an inspriration. emoticon thanks for commenting my blog I am afraid we both have a sweet tooth.

    My mom went home to be with the lord over 20 years ago and I still find time to thank the Lord for her being in my life. She taught me so many things and I think of her often and talk with her often

Don't be panickin...

Sunday, November 18, 2012



Good Sunday Sparkfam!! No need to get panicky because the holidays are coming. We've been armed with information on how much we could eat be satisfied & get a nice after dinner walk or tag football before dinner. So be mindful this Thanksgiving, it just not about stuffing into our faces that we can. We should be counting our many many blessings, thank the Lord for them all & share with someone else. I placed an order with Avon and also gave to our sisters & brothers still suffering because of that storm. I also give to the Greater Food Depository of Chicago. What I give & what you give will be different but give love if that's all you can give. All that we can spare is always definitely appreciated....

No dinner today as I am gearing my mind toward the favorite things for my hubs & kids. Also got in a good walk but maybe some abs & light weights to keep me from having back spasms. Oh did I tell you guys, I have been having some minor problems with my back but no worries, I have been trying to get a better stretch in after my workouts & it seems to be working out okay. Tomorrow I will get in a more physical workout as I will have to be as light as possible cause cooking & cleaning & a splash of paint is on the agenda for the rest of the week....lol Guys I love you all & pray you all have a wonderful week whatever it is you do!

God bless & keep you!!

Dee

    Oh girl take it easy. I had issues while I was attending college and could sit on chairs without pillow and I walked bent over. I was in pain and they mentioned surgery. But I said no and took predonsone and it cleared up inflammation. I have slipped disk and I am very careful. It is no joke with your back. Praying you a speedy healing. emoticon emoticon

    So your doctor told you it's ok to work out harder? emoticon I'm just checking. You are about to be busy this week Whew! I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do because I don't expect anyone so I'll do me. Take a walk in the morning since they do the Turkey Walk in Dallas that day. I've been eating light because I don't want to gain weight back that I lost. Probably too light but I'm good. I've been working on my piece for that Write a Novel in a Month and will be doing catch up. Thanks for the motivation and encouragement. Enjoy the week filled with much Love, Faith, Joy and An Abundance of Peace In Jesus' Name! I Thank My God For You and Praying That You Be Filled With ALL The Fullness of His Love!!!
Blessings & Love!

    YAY! Thank you for the pick-me-up! We've got the tools and we're usin' em! I am so lucky this year to have friends who want to do a "non traditional" Thanksgiving. It is going to feature roasted vegetables and salmon. I feel soo...soo... safe and enlightened!

Hope your back calms down. Have you tried a heating pad?


I hope your week gets off to a great start!

Monday Monday.....

Monday, November 05, 2012


Good Day Sparkfam! Even though it's Monday, it's a beautiful day!! Especially when God is doing what He said He would do in my life & those around me. Hopefully none of this will offend too many people but by now I think you know that I do worship the Lord....I'm just sayin...

Anyho, I got up early didn't have to make breakfast cause I found some great turkey bowls in the freezer section at Walmart & hubs & baby boy love them! WOOHOO for me!! That just means I can spend more time doing things I wanna do..lol So I laid in bed extra long & then the door bell rang! What in the world? It's the water company the are doing work on the streets and that requires us to move our cars by 7am or else we get tickets. Well I will move at about oh say 7:30am that's when I get baby boy off the high school. Then I will park on the lot when I get back. So I take Shadow my overgrown pup and he has already been on a walk but why did he go poop 2more times? Must be the scents of other dogs and different smells. We get home I feed him & make mine to go cause I running behind. This is so invigorating not to feel like I am rushing and running late. lol Had a productive meeting at work and made a little journal about how I proceed with my work flow at work. Will they use in the future? Of course, with or without me, I don't mind. I really have had some good times and they helped me raise, feed & keep my family together. So I wouldn't stand in the way of the future of this company especially after they are doing all they can to keep the place open.

In other news my daugther & son in law are expecting a little buddle of joy. Now she is exhausted and cranky as can be! I don't know how cause this should be a calmer time for her. lol Tonight, I will try to get boot camp & more walking on the dreadmill. So how is your Monday going? Take this journey always one day at a time...I pray you are too...have fun & laugh at yourself but get those workouts in..

God bless,

Dee

  Thanks for stopping in on my page! Nice to finally see someone reads what I have to say since I am so new to all this. Well sounds like your Monday was productive. I have to say mine was too - and the sun was shinning for the most part of the day. And there is nothing wrong in believing in the good lord - he makes all possible! Congrats on the grandbaby...hope all continues to go well in your life and health!

Run Baby Run.....

Sunday, October 28, 2012



Good Sunday Sparkfam! Yesterday was such a wonderful & romantic day for me & hubs, we got up at 7am went the track & we RAN! I have been trying to get him interested in running/walking outside with me since the last few months. I recently joined the "Black Girls Run" team but only have jogged on the treadmill. I haven't ran outdoors since we ran through the airport in DC last July....I'm not kidding you! lol This is serious as the Wonderpets would say when trying to save a pet from danger....My heatlh is very important to me as yours is to all of you. So we shared most of yesterday hanging out & just being close. Last night we anticipated what to eat, what to eat? Well, I don't like going out too late for fear of waiting & then becoming ravenous. So I suggest we eat something at home since it was cold & late. So I had some turkey burgers in freezer, unthawed & mixed them together, while I back sweet potatoe & curly fries in the oven. When I was done, the burgers were perfect! From the seasonings, you couldn't even tell they were turkey & the fries on the side made the meal perfect! My hubs was like man these are so good! They were small almost slider size but thicker & we were full & none the wiser to my son that he had just consumed turkey. He doesn't mind but next time, corn on the cob will be the side item.

Feeling pounds lighter already. Weights in had will be workout tonight after I finish cooking, beef short ribs, chicken breast & thighs, sweet potatoes, mac&cheese & wild rice. Oh & corn bread which is really good.

Oh, we had an wonderful time in Atlanta!! We enjoyed room service for breakfast, went shopping, got our nails done & then went out later to see a few sights. We just didn't have enough time but we laughed & laughed at ourselves & had such a good mother/daughter experience.... We will definitely do more things together. I lost my cellphone & ear piece & DROPPED my juicy perfume & broke! UGH & YIKES!! No one found either yet but oh well good is good all the time God is good! Thank you all for your well wishes cause they helped!

God bless & enjoy Sunday!

Dee

    emoticon That Sounds Like A Good Day And Night You Had On Saturday! Did You Run Long? You Like Me With Sweet Potatoes, I Can Eat Them With EVERY Meal Or As The Meal. I Always Cut Mine In Half If It's Too Big. Lately The Ones I've Bought Have Been Really Sweet, Which Is Surprising. Your Dinner Sounds Yummy As Always. My Grandmother Used To Cook Short Ribs All The Time. She Would Make A Pasta Dish With Them And Boy Were They Good...And Greasy! lol

It's A Shame You Lost Your Phone And Earpiece. But It's A Phone. I'm Glad You Had Fun Too. I've Never Been To The ATL And Do Not Have A Desire To Go. Too Big For Me. Thanks For The Goodie. We Have To Keep Fighting Even When We Get To That Weight Goal. But I'm Willing And You Know God Always Works With Our Efforts. emoticon
Have A Great End Of October!

    Isn't it great to have the hubby go with for the run? I wish Jeff was able to, but the cancer has him in a pretty slowed down pace.
The burgers sound good.

Thursday, October 18, 2012



Good Thursday Sparkfam! Well it's a windy but mild day here in Chicago. I have my heat on & I am trying to keep it low but some of these nights an extra blanket just didn't cut it. I am off tomorrow for a girls weekend to Atlanta with my best bud my darling daughter. We just need to spend time together & just enjoy this time now while we have it. I have been running around like a chicken with her head cut off! Still got a few more runs to make. So my men folk will be here to fend for themselves but the only thing I am worried about is tissue...lol

Since I am traveling my time on Spark maybe short. I will be taking my tablet but I HATE trying to do it on my cell or tablet its way to slow!

God bless & enjoy everyday!

God bless & enjoy everyday!
