Greetings SP Family!!
I realize that it's been a while, so how has everyone been doing in their journey? I haven't fared so well, but guess what - tomorrow is but another day!
Ok, so the title says it all...my son Nicolas passed away four years ago YESTERDAY & my heart hurts really, really BAD! I've been in the house pretty much all week & yesterday was a no-no as well. I messed up really bad...I baked a chocolate cake, for which I don't like, but it was one of his faves! I ate 3 pieces!!! I told myself that it was okay & that I would start over again on Friday...so far it isn't working. Why? I'm glad you asked...I had a surgical procedure on last week & have been in recovery mode since. I know that it's no excuse, but money is tight & to be honest, I'm just NOT feeling it.
I have a Church meeting on tomorrow, so that will lend assistance in getting me back on track, besides, this is Lent & I have decided to give up Dr. Pepper & sugar. Actually, with the exception of yesterday, I haven't had a DP for the last four days. Of course the exception to that is when I'm having a serious issue with my sugar. I continue to be a work in progress, so...
My everything hurts really bad & I think that my rheumatoid arthritis is in a terrible flare-up. I also think that my doctor needs to up my methotrexate. We'll see.
Anyway, we're only into March, so there is plenty of time to get it right!!
Blessings to each & every one of you!!

Good Morning Sparklers!!!
Ok, so it's been a while since we last "talked"... how is everyone doing on their journey & what's going on?? So, let's "chat" before I go to my Women's Missionary Society meeting at Church this morning...
I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted. My hours have picked up quite a bit at work, with back to school & all. Let me tell you this, I don't know if it's the heat or just plain old "bad disposition", but between the teachers needing to get their stuff together & having to pay for all of the print jobs out of their own pockets & the other crazies, I'm about ready to walk out the door. But necessity dictates that I can't...LOL
Oh yeah, then there's this... the 6th of March was the anniversary of my son's death. On the 7th of March, not feeling well, I didn't want to go to work, but again, necessity dictates that I can't miss. Long story short, someone broke into my locker, STOLE everything OUT of my purse, including everything related to my identity & my keys. Had the audacity to walk out the door, & using the remote, LOCATED MY VEHICLE & STOLE MY TRUCK!!!!! Are you freaking kidding me??!!! That's MY truck, clear title & all!! Talk about adding injury to insult, did I not just say that I didn't want to go to work in the first place?! Dammit, get your own stuff... I'm just saying...
For three weeks, I didn't have access to my bank account, no money, no drivers license, credit cards, or ANYTHING!!! Oh yeah, they had brass balls & used my credit cards immediately after stealing everything, at three stores to the total of $600.00 UGH!!!!
Ok, so as I continue to deal with that, now I'm at the mercy of having to ask for help! Really?!! God, if you're listening, please have mercy on me & the idiot that stole my belongings, they're going to need it!!
Alright, so fast forward to NOW.... God is smiling on me, yes he is....
I have replaced my drivers license, social security card, funds have been replaced in my account, & I have been approved for another vehicle.... I really wasn't looking forward to car payments at this time, but I can no longer go without a vehicle... so for that I'm grateful, indeed!!
Rest assured that as soon as this back-to-school is OVER, I will be cutting my hours back a bit....I'm extremely tired & this rheumatoid arthritis is NOT my friend...
I will be signing off for now, so that I can prepare myself for my meeting at Church.
Blessings to you all!!
I miss you terribly Nicolas!!! Forever in my heart, your Mother!!

Greetings To All!!
My, it sure has been a while & I pray that everyone is doing well! Ok, so what's the biz?...
Here goes... I (we) finally finished school & graduated with my Bachelor's in Business Management!!!
What have you all been up to? Let's chat for a while... I'm sad & my heart hurts, but I really can't tell you why!!
Our company is going through some changes & have made the "corporate" decision to close our location...having said that, Thank God the associates will be transferring to other locations, hopefully close to their geographical location. As for me, I have a strong feeling that I will get a pink slip...why? I'm glad you asked... I have a lot of health concerns & I am very strong in my convictions that unless they are willing to keep my schedule the way it is now, with weekends off for Church functions on Saturday & free on Sunday to attend Church, I don't think that the store manager at the other location is willing to bend... I'm not either. Since Nicolas has gone on to glory, this truly has a different meaning entirely & is a huge part of my life.
So, on to the next phase... I was just recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis & this stuff is no joke. I kept telling my doctor that my ankles hurt terribly bad & it really felt like my bones were put in backwards & coming through!!! Since it is so advanced, they have put me on Methotrexate & folic acid to lend assistance with a sick tummy & hair loss...
I'm okay with that, except that it just hurts, & I want it to stop...
As I sit here thinking about a LOT of stuff, I have it in my spirit that I want to work from home for a while.... this keeps keeping to me & has been for quite some time... is this possibly a sign that change is in order. The last day for the store is November 17, so we'll see what happens....
I wanted to share this with everyone.... this is a little note that I wrote for Nicolas for graduation...
"Nicolas, when we first started this journey, WE were side by side; however, somewhere along the way, God called you on to Glory; thus making it harder to go it alone. Through many tears, & oftentimes feeling that I just couldn’t go on – I looked up toward the Heavens, knowing in my heart that you had been by my side all along. Our journey is now complete!"
In your honor & precious memory!
I love you!
As I close, I pray that everyone's spirit is calm, & if it isn't seek God first, then perhaps someone to talk you....
Please, please keep in touch & may everyone have a blessed night!!

I'll start by telling my son, Nicolas HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Today would have been his 27th birthday, but he is in Heaven up above smiling down on me...Why? Because, with the exception of an essay, I have completed my undergrad program & I will be marching to receive my Bachelor's in Business Management.... This I have done in memory of my son, Nicolas!!!
By the grace of God, WE DID IT!!!!
Okay, so when I have completed my essay, what is my next step? Not sure, but I do know that while I am not ungrateful, this part time stuff is killing me financially!!! I feel that now that I am past being a full time student, I want to go back to work full time. I won't lie & say that I am not having concerns with my medical issues, especially now that I am having the dropsies, & dizzy spells, but, such as life...
How is everyone doing? I hope that all is well with everyone!! Life is way too short, so don't be too hard on yourself. Live a little!!
