A GLORIOUS RECIPE FOR THE SOUL ......

Sunday, October 02, 2011





Fold two hands together,
And express a dash of sorrow;
Marinate it overnight,
And work on it tomorrow.

Chop one grudge in tiny pieces
Add several cups of love,
Dredge with a large-sized smile,
Mix in ingredients from above.

Dissolve the hate within you,
By doing a good deed;
Cut in and help your friend,
If he or she should be in need.

Stir in laughter, love and thankfulness,
From the heart it has to come;
Toss with genuine kindness, then
share with folks who may need some.

The amount of people served,
Will all depend on you ...
This recipe can feed an entire world,
If you really want it to!

    This is great. Thanks

The first poem I ever memorized when I was about 3 was similar:

Recipie for happiness:
Take a cup of kindness
Add a dash of charity
Mix with understanding
And a bit if courtesy

Top it off with patience
Sprinkle liberly with cheer
serve generously to everyone
You meet throughout the year

RIPPLES......

Sunday, September 04, 2011





Drop a pebble in the water: just a splash, and it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
Spreading, spreading from the center, flowing on out to the sea.
And there is no way of telling where the end is going to be.
Drop a pebble in the water: in a minute you forget,
But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet,
And those little waves a-flowing to a great big wave have grown;
You've disturbed a mighty river just by dropping in a stone.
Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on.
They keep spreading, spreading, spreading from the center as they go,
And there is no way to stop them, once you've started them to flow.
Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute you forget;
But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet,
And perhaps in some sad heart a mighty wave of tears you've stirred,
And disturbed a life was happy ere you dropped that unkind word.
Drop a word of cheer and kindness: just a flash and it is gone;
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
Bearing hope and joy and comfort on each splashing, dashing wave
Till you wouldn't believe the volume of the one kind word you gave.
Drop a word of cheer and kindness: in a minute you forget;
But there's gladness still a-swelling, and there's joy circling yet,
And you've rolled a wave of comfort whose sweet music can be heard
Over miles and miles of water just by dropping one kind word.

~ By James W. Foley (1874-1939) Poet-laureate of North Dakota 1930-1939

    What a wonderful reminder of the fact that what we share spreads further than we can imagine. And, that it is far better to spread cheer and kindness rather than an unkind word. We never know how our words and actions will effect those around us and what the ripple affect will be.

Have You Tried SparkPeople Live?

Friday, August 26, 2011

Have You Tried SparkPeople Live?

Have you attended one of the SparkPeople Live meetings yet? This is a relatively new feature from SparkPeople that provides us with live online support and motivation.

Each week they cover a different topic related to weight loss, exercise,healthy eating or motivation to help us meet our goals. Along the way, you’ll meet new SparkFriends who will encourage and support you each week!

Meetings are offered multiple days and times each week. I'm partial to the Tuesday 3PM meetings with leaders Anne & Bobby (MIAMIA7 & BOBBYD31); but, each meeting is led by another great Sparker so find one that works with your schedule. Use the link below to the LiveMind site that hosts these sessions. Click on "More Dates" for additional meetings.


First timers would benefit from attending one of the Orientation Meetings to learn how the meetings work, get the feel of the site, find your microphone, webcam, etc. (Webcam is not required but it is really nice to be able to see your fellow Sparkers.) After that, sign up for one of the recurring weekly meetings.

thanks SHEENADEE for allowing me to post this here.......

this is such an awesome tool here is hoping many can take advantage so feel free to pass this on to anyone you feel would benefit.......
have a great weekend...blessings and hugs...............lita


ps If I can help by answering any questions, just let me know. .............
