This week has been a very stressful week for me and my family. On Dec 1 I lost my dad, Dec 10 I lost my Uncle Kenny ( the last of my dads brothers),Jan 8th my DH nieces father pasted and then suddlenly by big brother passed away on Jan 18th.
MY brother was my protecter when I was young. He always made sure that my friends knew he would be there to make sure his little sister was well protective. He was a veteran and served in the gulf war.
Then he became a computer specialist for a company that worked on ATM machines. He traveled all over the world and repaired those machines. When we came home and semi- retired he started his own computer repair company and it was a success.
Then in his later years he had a very bad accident and hurt his back. I love my bro to pieces , but he then became addicted to pain medication. He was taking aleast 24 to 30 pills a day. So, yes he taught me to be more aware of the medication that I was on.
I love him and my sister and I watched over him and tried to understand his choses, but knew we could not change his mind on things (yes, we did try). I thought he had already passed, but was told on my way to his home, that they were waiting on me so I could say my last goodbye. As I watched him take his last breath, I was happy that he was a peace and in no more pain. Tonight I am using his computer and I feel he is watching me as I type these words.. I will miss you David, my heart will be full of the memories of our childhood and adulthood. God Bless YOU.
Your baby sister

Well today started off sad, I found out that my Dad's brother, my Uncle Kenny passed away. So my family has lost some wonderful family in the last couple months. I know they are in a good place, playing football like they did when they were together. So, tonight instead of routing for the Saints or the Seahawks, I betting the 4 Daniels brothers are winning their game.
The good news, We adopted a cute little 14 month furbaby . Her name is Lucy Belle and she is a Terrior Mix,
I hope all is well with all My Spark Friends.

Today's assignment for the Winter 5% Challenge is to list all the reasons you want to lose weight in a blog.
What do you want to change?
I would like to continue to change my lifestyle to a healthy one!
How do you want to look?
How do you want to feel?
What things will you be able to do in the future with a slimmer healthier body?
I would like to really have a fun day with my kids, grandkids, and family
That pretty much says it all! I want to be healthier, not taking the meds I am taking and just being me!

Today at 1:00 p.m. we laid my beloved father to rest. I was happy he was no longer in pain and that he is with my mom. The saddest part was when the taps were played and hearing the 21 gun salute and the color guard folded the american flag and presented it to me with saying that wonderful message, " On behalf a greatful nation".
It was such a beautiful tribute to a wonderful man that served his country for almost 30 years. This wonderful man was a great husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.
I will always love and miss you daddy. Thank you for every minute you were here and for every memory that I will always have in my heart.

My life began in a family of two wonderful parents and a older sister and brother; Today was a day of saddest when my father passed away. I am thankful that he now has no more pain and that he is with my mother now.
He was a very wonderful man, he taught me right from wrong, and asked that I be strong and I would go a long way in life. The military was most of his life, and he fought in the Vietnam war and then educated other sailors from his experiences in his last years of the military. He retired twice in his life, one the military and the other as a bank vice president.
He preceeded his wife Josephine in passing and is survived by one brother Kenny, of Ohio, and a son from Beeville Texas, and a daughter in Louisanna, and of course me.
I am so happy now that he is with my mom and I can hear her asking why did he do this and this and this. I can see the love they both shared and now the love that is forever. The last words I was able to say was that I have lost some more weight and he was happy for me. In fact, he said he would buy me a car if I lost another 300 pounds ( that was his dementia talking, but it made all of us kids laugh). Then I ended the phone call with I love you, and he returned the words.
The one way I can honor him is to stay strong, and make sure my life style change is a success.
With this I would like to thank all my Sparkfriends and Dawgie Team mates for love love and concern.
