I miss blogging with videos and my pictures. Without a computer I will have to entertain you with my words alone. I miss sharing my thoughts with you. I miss commenting on your blogs. I have been enjoying most of them. I actually cried reading your happy blogs, but I did not have a happy thought to share with you.
I am a community sparker so I like to welcome the new folks now & then. I have this whole thing that I change up. My goal is to encourage them to get healthier by sharing my thoughts about Spark. I am a big fan of the Nutrition Tracker ( I call it food tracker).
So I am unable to track my food tracker because as you know I have no computer. What I take from the tracker is knowledge. I entered a delicious yummy almond bar from Costco that I would get now and then. Once I learned it was 900 Calories from tracking my food, I was able to make better choices consistent with my goals.
I really miss the benefits of the data I get from tracking my food. I miss seeing my pie charts. I miss the thrill of getting a perfect report. I think I am slipping on my eating because I miss the positive reinforcement from tracking my food.
I MISSED TOMORROWS
I have consistently insisted I am blessed with a great Family. I love my family so much, just like most of you. I love my friends and I feel so blessed to have so many amazing friends. I must be a fabulous Mother because my girls are so wonderful. Sometimes when I spend time with my daughters I take inventory of their growth and progress. I am pleased and proud of them and look forward to sharing their lives.
I know I have every reason to feel happy and blessed. But lately I have not been happy at all. I have had tough, huge losses. I have lost people I love very much and I miss them more than words can say.
I kept this to myself thinking there was no point in sharing it. Frankly, I don't like bringing anyone down. I am more of a "hey, did you go for a walk?" sort of person. I want to lift you up and shower you with all that is good.
TOMORROW IS NEVER PROMISED
I want us all to live our lives to the fullest every day. Don't hold off on hugging, visiting or calling someone. Take every opportunity you can because tomorrow is never promised.
And yes I am talking about your health. If you are putting off losing those pounds to get yourself where you want to be, I beg you to do it now. Play with your fitness tracker, change it up. Look up some new recipes to try and comment on. Read some of the wonderfully written articles and e-mails about healthy living. Motivate yourself to work on you, now. Be who you want to be because tomorrow is never promised.
I have always known tomorrow is never promised, with so many recent losses It felt like someone took my tomorrow away.
I am beginning to see I still have my tomorrows, just not with the people I have lost. I never toss people I care about away. Sadly, some people I love don't want me in their life. Sometimes marriages end with a broken heart. Friends of a lifetime walk away and we can't stop them. Children grow up and don't always stay in touch. Loved ones pass away and we miss them. I miss my tomorrows with them.
I still have loved ones who want me in their life so I celebrate that.

Still no computer, i hope it is in good hands maybe they can find my pictures that have been missing for a year. I can't spark much & I miss my Spark Family.
For your pleasure, a little Joke I got from a very good FB friend.
A dying granny tells her granddaughter, "I want to leave you my farm, that includes the villa, the tractor and other equipment, the farmhouse and $22,398,750.78 in cash." The granddaughter, about to be rich, says, "oh my granny, you are so generous. I didn't even know you had a farm. Where is it?" With her last breath, her granny whispered, "Facebook"

Boy if I had a buck for every time one of us had computer issues I would make it on the top 10 richest women list. I do have a few blogs I want to write, like the dog days of summer and a few others, but our computer is on the blink. Not sure when it will be up & running. So i am just sharing this fairly unimportant fact because i don't want anyone to worry.
