Oh my! Where does the time go?? I have been off & on with so many things lately. Not because I was trying to be, but "Life" happened.
I think writing this blog will help me make time for sparking and consistent exercise.
Due to family illness for the last 2-3 months, it has been difficult to have some me time.
My husband has been ill with severe asthma, leading to hospitalization and ER visit. Have finally found a great specialist that seems to be getting him back on track, thank God! To see someone gasping for air, especially my husband, is a helpless feeling.
It's a new year, full of hope, love & challenges. Thanks to all of you who continue to encourage and stay in touch, even though I did not respond you were in my thoughts & prayers!
Blessings & Peace

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and concerns. My sister's major surgery (kidney removal) went well, Praise God!. She is recuperating, still has lots of pain, and some other very uncomfortable issues that come with surgery, BUT her attitude is very positive and we are all thankful that things are as well as they are!
I haven't been able to "spark" much, but I'm still here and trying not to gain weight due to the stress and not being able to exercise as much. My type II diabetes has been more difficult to control due to stress and not being able to eat as healthy as usual--but I am aware of it and striving to make better choices.
Thank you and blessings to all--gotta go get on the treadmill...I'm determined to do what I can!

It's been a while since I posted a blog. Last few months have certainly had a great deal of stress and test of my faith--but I'm still here and thankful that things are as well as they are!
Nov. 25th, one of my older brothers went into renal failure and we were not certain he was going to live. In 3 different hospitals and a nursing home for rehab, and not coming home until 1-19-2012. Dialysis began while in the 2nd hospital and still continues. He lost one kidney to cancer about 3 yrs ago, and the other one is not able to function well enough anymore. BUT, I'm thankful.....
Another sibling diagnosed with kidney cancer 2 days after Christmas---same kidney that our brother lost due to cancer, previously. Genetic? possibly---but it was caught in Stage 1, unlikely that chemo or radiation will be needed, kidney will be removed, leaving one;
But I'm (WE are) thankful---
Let me say that I am NOT writing this blog for sympathy, pity or attention. I'm writing this because we all have some troubles and burdens we must face. We tend to think we cannot make it through some of the things we face, and WE cannot, ALONE! We must have a relationship with the Lord to get us through all things, especially those things that would tear us apart, steal our peace, kill our joy, and make us bitter.
I can still look around and see others who are hurting because they have lost 7 siblings in as many years, I'm thankful things are as well as they are--at least my siblings are still with me.
Never said it was easy, it's not. But with the Lord's help it is EASIER! I realize and know without a doubt, that if He brings me to it--He has already, tested it, tried it and prepared it so that I can GO THROUGH IT!
Yes, I'm thankful things are as well as they are...
Peace & Blessings

Nice cool morning, did not have to get up at 5 am, DH was home too, (we seldom have days off together) but I just HAD to get up & walk--I did it for ME! Because I am worth it! Because Diabetes and High Blood Pressure does not take the day off, and because God opened my eyes, gave me the ability to move my limbs, gave me sound mind, and a desire to say "Thank You Lord" for your grace & mercy.
Peace & Blessings,
