Hi Beautiful Butterflies
Just want to say, how excited I am for the team, we are soaring the skies, accumulating many points (miles) for exercise equaling miles traveled. This is really a challenge, for me to do, I am not use to exercising, due to many health problems, but with Sparks and these challenges, I have been able to increase, them dramatically. Actually going from like 5 minutes a day, to between 30 & 40 minutes, a day, NOT all at once, but five or ten minutes, at a time, and I feel it. It's a good feeling knowing I can do it, some days.
I wish I could give each member, personal time, but my mind forgets, and at times, I sit around being bored, I try and send out a personal message to someone, someplace on Sparks, almost everyday. I think this is good, because I
know, how good I feel, when I receive encouragement, from another, It doesn't matter, who they are, they found something to contact me about, and I feel on top of the world, for a few minutes, so let's help to make someone's day special for them, if you have time, or thought to do so.
Have a Good Night or a Good Day, depending on when you read this!

I'm doing it for the Butterfly Team, today. It's coming off the top of my head
talking about top of my head, I just realized, this head needs washing, and setting and looking nice, again. odd how these things get away from you when other things are on one's mind
my hands need tended to also. nails soaked, filed, painted, oh my. What color should I choose? Will have to think about that, I just noticed they needed done. lol
catching up on some vacuuming today, might do a little reading this evening, to pass the time.
Wishing everyone to get into an exercise mood and claim those points. Remember we have good habits developed now, so don't let them go, we don't need to claim them in points, but we do need to do them for better life and better health. Here's hoping we have them all down pact, by now. I think we do.
Are you claiming them? I am!

was in surgery from 11:30-7:00PM, yesterday, but fortunately they were able to do the easier surgery, there was a surprise when they looked in the camera on the right side of his body, (the microscopic size thymus gland, which grew to the size of a kidney bean a month, ago, grew to the size of a baseball in one month, they never seen this happen before and had to have a consult with doctor from the adult side of hospital before proceeding, well they increase the size of the hole they were going to remove it from, got it up to it, then poked it and drained it, on the outside of the body, and removed the very large flat piece of substance, filled with cyst, which went to pathology, to be examined (will get results later), well adult side doctor advised them to go to the left side of the body with a camera to see if there was anything, that had to be removed from that side, and there was, a fatty straggley piece,(also being sent to pathology) closed him up, and moved him into ICU. He was still completely asleep, when I talked to his mom last night.
I want to thank all of you for your prayers and prayer chains, they certainly helped! I will keep you posted.
I turned to food yesterday to comfort me, but I forgive myself, it is what I know. I will go on from here, hopefully I am calmer today and can think and make better choices.

I am so proud of this team, I think everyone, is trying so hard, and working so well, as a team. For me, some days are better then others, like it is for other Butterfly's, I'm sure. It is so important, not to let it get you down, when you know you didn't do what you wanted/were suppose to do. We need to forgive ourselves, and move on to the next meal or the next group of exercise, or the acceptence, of what is going on, in ones family.
Sometimes, life is not a bowl of cherries, but we pick up the cards and make a complete deck, again and go forward. Each time we do this, we get a moment, even if it's for a brief second. Hold on to it, clasp it, it's yours, it's mine, it's ours. Together we can do this! We are the Butterfly's and were soaring as high as we can, and were doing our best. Give yourself a hug, and if you have someone close by give that person a hug and tell them you love them.
One never knows what is going to happen from one day to the next. Live life to the fullest, enjoy all you can, smile when you can and wipe away the tears, as soon as you can.
Your all special to me, thank you for being here for me, today!

I rephased an e-mail this morning, and was amazed it what it said and want to share
WATER (I will put it in my own words, due to copyrighted material, possibly)
#1. ( possibly) 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated..
#2. In 37% of Americans,(people often think they are hungry, instead of thirsty, because of the weaken state of the mechanism, that tells us this)
#3. MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.
(this alone, will effect weight lost)
#4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs
#5. Lack of water, may cause, daytime fatigue.
#6. 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain
for up to 80% of sufferers.
#7. A mere 2% drop in body water cancaise fuzzy short-term
memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on
the computer screen or on a printed page.
#8.. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily can decrease the risk of
colon cancer by 45%, plus it may slash the risk of breast
cancer by 79%., we may be 50% less likely to develop
Are you drinking the amount of water
you should drink every day?
This has helped me to continue to remember to drink my water!
