New Year Motivation!

Monday, January 04, 2010

Happy New Year! I have high hopes. I pledged 50lbs for "pound for pound" in which they give for every pound I lose a pound of food to my local food bank. I hope that I can do this and donate the food for people in need.
Danielle's parents are still in need of prayers. We visit them often and keep them company when we can. Thanks to all who have prayed for them.
I want to not only lose weight in this New Year but be able to lighten others burdens when I can. Despite my physical limitations at this point of my life i still want to be able to do what I can for others. So I pray that I lose weight and am able to do more and more rather then less and less.
I wish you all a wonderful, healthy, happy New Year. God Bless, Judy

Today my sweet niece was buried surrounded by her loving family. It was a very painful experience for all. Lots of tears, lots of prayers and lots of love. Danielle died of Lupus. Her mother also has the disease. In spite of all her pain she never complained and always went to work and had a smile for everyone. She was an angel, a delight. I hope after reading this you will say a prayer for her and her parents Arthur and Pat. Danielle was their only child.
Thank you, Hugs Judy

  Thanks to all of you. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and thanks so much for your synpathies and prayers. Danielle is with the Lord, there is no doubt but her parents hearts are aching. I feel so badly for them. Thankfully they do have faith. Hugs, Judy

    Praying for Danielle, her family and her Aunt Judy. May God bless and comfort you during this difficult time. A loss leaves a heartache no one can heal, but love leaves a memory no one can steal. May you find comfort in those loving memories of your time with Danielle.
Blessings and hugs,

Hi Everyone,
I have been team leading and getting to know some members that don't post by reading their blogs. It is an interesting job I have as I get to "meet" a lot of people. In doing so I am learning a great deal about them and myself. My motives and my needs and and my reasons for doing what I do and they are not always what I would wish. I have also met some very motivating people. Amazing warm generous loving people. I had some hesitation about assuming this role but now I am glad because without the responsibility I would have never got to know all these wonderful people. Thank you! Hugs!

New Motivation!

Saturday, October 24, 2009

I feel the Spark today! What is new? I took over as Leader "Healthier Fitting Lifestyle" which had been led by my very dear friend Menna. Menna begged me as she thought I would take care of things for her. I really wasn't looking for any responsibilities as I have been there, done that and now am in retired mode.
Menna's screen name was "Angel of Hopes" and she is an angel and a blessing to me. Plus the irony of it all is that today my name went up as leader and I feel like living up to expectation and taking control of my eating and lifestyle. So she has been my angel again today and as always. May God always bless her in her life and upcoming marriage.
May God help me to help and guide my peers as I love you all. Amen
