A friend sent this to me today. I couldn't resist sharing it with my Spark Friends. I can't relate to the wine part, but limiting my Spark time for Lent -- well, that kind of does feel like someone pulled the plug on my life machine!
Happy Mardi Gras! Yeah, it's Fat Tuesday. But, that will NOT deter me from my regular eating plan. Fat Tuesday is no different than any other Tuesday. If I'm getting fat on anything today, it's getting a BIG DOSE of Spark time!
My Lenten resolution is to limit my Spark time. And that is going to be a BIG sacrifice for me! So, you will probably see less of me posting between now and Easter. Wishing everyone a blessed and holy Lenten season.
This photo reminds me of my purpose as a Sparker. When someone is new, I want to help the newbie figure this out. When someone falls down, I want to help lift you up with encouraging words.
It's not usually hard to find someone who needs an encouraging word. All I have to do is read the blogs - the blog title usually is a clue. The list of blogs designates who is writing their "1st blog", which might also indicate that person is new to SparkPeople.
Never before have I felt such unconditional love and support from a group of people, most of whom I have never met in person! Thank you for being a part of my life, for accepting me as I am, and for gently challenging me to be more than I think I can be. Together we CAN do what we cannot do alone.
