Thought I would give my Sparkfriends an update since I haven't been online in a while.
My stepdaughter's four children were removed from her home and we have taken the two older girls, Haley and Lilly, ages 8 and 5. The little boys have been placed in a foster home. John and I couldn't handle all four children.
It has been an absolute whirlwind and we've had to move into a larger apartment. At least the girls are well and safe. We've had non-stop appointments...doctors, psychologists, etc. We've been driving both girls to two different schools twice a day and everything has been just crazy but we are making it..one day at a time.
The girls are emotionally disturbed and we have a Mental Health counselor coming to do "In Home Therapy". It's going to be a long road ahead but with God's help, we'll make it.
Sorry I haven't been sparking..but I'm sure in time I'll get back here.
Much love and please keep us in your prayers!

Wishing all of my sparkfriends a happy, healthy, blessed New Year!
I'm ready for a new year, that's for sure!
Unfortunately, I'm starting out this one with a wicked sinus infection and half my head hurts, eye is watering, teeth even hurts. Ugh!
Well, this too shall pass...it always does.
Don't party too hard and be safe if you're going out.
Okay 2013, bring it on!
Tiara's UP! haaaa (Ow, it hurts when I laugh..haha)

What inspires you? Hmmm. I know what inspires me and it's not chocolate...haaaaaaaa.
Well, I lied. It IS chocolate but I think I feel a "break - up" comin' on. Oh, who am I kidding? I'll break up to make up, that's what I'll do. I know me too, too well. :) Haaaaaaaaaaaaa
Well, I do know that LOVE inspires me, especially sacrificial love.
Courage inspires me. Honesty inspires me.
Hmmmm...okay, now I'm becoming inspired....by ME!
I must learn to honestly have the courage to allow Love to inspire me to greater things and higher heights. I can do it. I have help.
I am not alone and neither are you!
Yes, hard work is involved but isn't it always and doesn't it always mean more when you've put your whole heart into it?
Work is what it's gonna' take. Being inspired is only the first step. You must give your inspiration feet to run and dance...hands to do good things and wings to flyyyyy. It does require work. We can do it. It's a decision.
We don't have to do it all in one day. We don't have to be overwhelmed.
If all you can muster up today is the energy to walk 10 more steps....do it.
If all you can do today is drink a few extra glasses of water....do it.
If all you can do today is to tell "self-talk" to shut up....do it.
If all you can do today is make a plan....do it.
If all you can do today is track your food....do it.
If all you can do today is decide to not give up... DO IT!
We'll get there, because we're worth it. God says so.
Allow LOVE to inspire you, today and don't you dare give up.

Little by little, we'll get there!
