Ever have a friend that was hurting and hurting so bad that they couldn't tell you what was wrong, but you knew deep inside you could help. You didn't know how, you just knew you could. So you dug deep and you tried to help and you discovered that you did help. Your friend, but yourself, too.
It's happened to me today and I am feeling better about myself and I realized that I wasn't feeling so good about myself. I can't even put a finger on the reason, but I was feeling down on myself, like a total failure and wondering, "What is the point?!"
I am the point! I am working on my health and I am getting there even if the scale isn't budging. Maybe it's broken and I don't know it. I looked in the mirror this morning after I put on my suit. Old women have ugly butts! But mine was looking like a 40 year old woman's butt! "Wow!" I said to my DH. "My butt is getting smaller!" He agreed (wisely) and I trilled off to the pool feeling like a battered million bucks. (There's a point where you never feel like a new million bucks anymore - I'm past it!)
Then when I came home I was feeling yukky inside and it crawled into my mind and left me feeling...depressed. Oh no! Not that anymore. That was an awful time and I don't wish that time on my worst enemy. So I quickly scanned my feelings, decided I needed some good healthy food and ate my snack, then at lunch time, I ate my lunch. I feel better physicially, but I was still down in the mind. I read my SparkMail and then I sat back and thought, "What is my problem?"
I had a friend in need. I tried to help her. I don't know if I did, but I certainly helped myself. If you ask me, I think God gives us problems to find our way out of. Then we can use the experience to help others. Hmm! Isn't SparkPeople like that? Don't we have this super system of being able to send SparkGoodies and happiness to our SparkFriends all over the world. Today, I discovered for myself, how important it is to huddle everyday with our teams, receive and send SparkJoy to our friends SparkPages and even help from miles and miles away. Yes! This is My SparkPeople.com, my SparkFriends and I love you all. Thank you for being my friend.

Today is one of those days where I'm getting caught up on some things and getting some other well deserved, or needed, things done. I'm doing the weeks meal planning, the laundry, vacuuming, washing tile floors and dusting. Then I'm going to be set for for a week of whatever comes knocking as I'll be able to handle it.
Have a Sparkling one! wish there was a smily face pushing a vacuum cleaner.

Here we are, another day closer to deadline and the elected officials still can't let go of their personal agendas, stupidity, greed, graft, and insain talent at putting the spin on the darkenss to make it look like they are doing something important. I would love to be able to say what I actually feel about them, but I'd probably be prohibited to visit SP ever again, and hauled away to some dark dungeon of the Federal government for saying something obnoxious about our elected officials, even though it's our right. At any rate, some might twist it into something it's not so I'm not saying what I really feel, but I am so tired of being held hostage to their constant posturing and bickering.
I really think it's time to start impeachment procedings. I bet if someone in every state started impeachment procedings against every senator and representative in those two DC houses, they would instantly come to terms and miraculously make a decision to raise the debt ceiling instead of the game playing. I bet it would cease immediately and silence would reign for a few moments as everyone looked at everyone else wondering what just happened. The only thing moving, the only sound would be the papers blowing in the wind. Isn't that where the answer is anyway?
It would be nice to be able to sit back and say, "It'll be alright, I'll just sit back and lock the door and be safe in my house." But will you have a house left by the time this is over? I fear I am going to lose my shirt, I hope I have a spare in the drawer.
Take care my friends. I want tomorrow to be a better day. It will be from my side of the looking glass, but I fear from the other side. Keep on believing and keep on Sparking.
