Dwell on and feel denied
Want and don't receive
Desire and refuted
Destined to Succeed
It matters not what bothers others
It can effect the outcome of me today
So need to set aside, immediately
Until, I can make a difference
If I ever can
Love I know I have
Cherished I know I am
Motherhood, is sometimes lonely
especially when they have flown the nest
and they want to do it themselves
When they need my advice
they will come
When they need my attention
they will call
When they remember me
I will feel comforted
I need to remember
this is there life
I lived my life, and
I promised myself I
would not try to live
Life is Short
I will Fly
I will Soar
I will feel
Life is Good.
Sometimes, we need to get the words we feel out, so we can accept, where were at and this is what I'm doing today. I am here, where I need to be.
I hope your dealing with your day the way you need to, I am trying and I will

Wow! It is so good to receive Spark e-mail. I realized just how much so, when I didn't get any in a couple of days. So Guess what I did!
I sent some out, I have to remember, I have to send out e-mails sometimes to have people know what I need or want from them. Or I just want to send one to someone new and not want anything, except for contact.
Some days seniors, only get contact through forums and message boards, unless they feel like reaching out for more, and some days, it seems to repetitive, to do, again, so don't.
I try to stay busy, but sometimes, I don't feel like doing anything in particular in the home, so I visit on my forums, for human contact. I'm sure we all have out days, when we just want to chat, and this must be one of them, at least right know is.
So Hello Friends and Friends to Be
I am fine, I am trying not to eat too early, already had my breakfast, did a desk workout, and am not hungry, but am Bored, oh my. Well hoping to hear from someone, when I check back, a little later. Remember the journey may be long for some of us, and short for others, but together we can complete it, it is easier, that way.
Hugs and Prayers from

Just have to share, I feel like I am doing better this month emotionally, and I have gotten a few days of exercise in without excess pain this week, so that was great. I am talking it slow, a little bit at a time. and I feel okay with that.
I have increased my protein, by eating more egg whites (hard boiled eggs w/o yolks)
and this has helped if hunger hits.
I have found out recently, I can't eat much citrus fruit, because it causes me skin problems, and also make my skin peal, besides itch. I knew something was doing it, but I thought, it was fat rubbing against fat, but that isn't the case, I was healed and then bought citrus fruit this month and omg what a difference (Ouch) it made.
Of course, being penny pinching, and compulsive, I had to eat every piece, because I'm the only person here, most of the time, and I couldn't waste it.
I won't do this again, hopefully I will remember not to do it. lol (those senior moments)
Life is good, I am happy, I am content, and I am looking forward to each day as a new day with good progress coming out of it.
Is there music to exercise to on Sparks? Thanks

This interested me so much, I had to post it here, so all has a chance to read it, as I did. Here it is"
Great "Big" Bible Challenge
Knowing that Psalms is the only book in the Bible that mentions God laughing or that Adam was the first patient to be operated on under anesthetic won’t help you unlock the Bible’s secrets, but it could help you pass this Bible Challenges with flying colors.
How well do you know God’s Word? Relax for a few minutes and find out. You may even want to grab a pencil and keep score.
1. Where did the phrase “wolf in sheep’s clothing” originate?
If you say Aesop’s Fables? Go to question 21. OR If you say The Bible? Go to question 9.
2. What was the first of the ten plagues of Egypt?
Frogs? Go to question 8. Blood? Go to question 15. Darkness? Go to question 10.

5. Were angels present at the Creation of the world?
If you say Yes? Go to question 12. If you say No? Go to question 28.

7. Close. Aaron’s Rod, not Moses’ Rod was in the Ark (Heb. 9:4). Now, to find out how many minutes it will take you to read the Bible right through, see number 50.
8. Close, but no diploma. The first plague God sent (when Pharaoh refused to let His people go) was blood. Exodus 7 tells us that blood was everywhere, even in the wooden buckets and stone jars. The frogs came next. Now, jump to 37.
9. Good start! Matthew 7:15 says, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Many of the phrases we use every day originated in Scripture. Others include “holier than thou” (Isaiah 65:5), “a drop in a bucket” (Isaiah 40:15), and “the blind leading the blind” (Matt. 15:14). Now go to number 33.
10. Close, but no blue ribbon. The first plague God sent (when Pharaoh refused to let His people go) was blood. Exodus 7 tells us that blood was everywhere, even in the wooden buckets and stone jars. The darkness came later. Now, on to question 37.
