Trip to London

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Last weekend my mom and i travelled to London to meet two very special ladies and spark buddies. It was so wonderful to finally put a face to the posts and voices i had heard but never met. We had a blast and the memories and laughs we had will last us a life time. While we were there we also took part in the Walmart walk for childrens hospitals and although it was a very hot day and i was beat at the end of the 5ks its wish nice to know we were helping to make a difference in a childs life.Thank you doesnt even seem like enough for our friends for opeing up there hearts and homes to us and giving us this wonderful opprotunity. you are amazing people and you mean the world to us.

Now to share a few pictures of our weekend , mary i know you are one of the main subjects in my photos i think that was just how it seemed to work out. Enjoy the pictures and thanks for the wonderful time.

The video of Mary dancing was cute too, even with it being that dark... LOL

my special gift

Friday, December 23, 2011

As Christmas is quickly approaching and in fact only 2 days i way i wanted to share something with all of you. I have wanted to blog about this a couple days ago but things have been pretty busy . It all starts with a dear spark buddy of mine ( i wont mention names for privacy sake) who i have developed a friendship with yet have never met her face to face. For you see this year things have been kind of tough on this family and financially it hasnt been an easy year. Now i know we ALL have had a tough year i know we have too but there was just something about this family that said help us. I guess maybe i remember being in a situation similar to what this family has faced at Christmas time specially when it comes to being able to make Christmas special for our children and when i shared their story with my husband his response was "We have to help them" and in theory this all sounded it great i thought ok great but how we re in Canada and they are in the US. After a few days of thought we decided we would go shopping and buy some toys and treats for their child and mail them a special gift. When this child learned that a special gift was on its way all the way from Canada he became very excited. Almost immediately he wanted to come for a visit how sweet. Well this special little boy decided he wanted to make us a christmas ornament and he coloured us a great picture too. When it arrived in the mail i could tell he had put alot of love into his art work. It was something our family would cherish always and to me that was OUR SPECIAL GIFT from him. Now normally my husband and i would buy gifts for one another this year we chose to spend that money on making a little boy very happy and today as i was checking the tracking and realized it had arrived in his city i got a tear in my eye a tear of happiness for you see We truly have gotten the most special Christmas gift ever and while this boy may grow up and out grow his special gift we will ALWAYS have our special gift in our hearts, the feeling of what the Season is all about . The best gift is the one you GIVE from the heart. sorry for rambling but wanted to share this wonderful feeling that is in my heart right now

A moment of strength

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

As i type this blog im sitting in the movie theatre watching the previews waiting for our movie to start. I love going to the novies and well who doesnt love movie theatre treats. For me though i had come prepared with my own healthier snack from home so i didnt need to indulge in useless calories. Well when we arrived mike got his usual bag of buttery popcorn. He asked if i was going to have some i said no. Then i said well get a sharing bag and maybe i ll have a little. Well they gave us tonnes of popcorn and smoothered it will golden butter. We made our way to the theatre and found some seats and as i went to sit down i could feel all the pain in my muscles from my hard efforts of yesterdays pump it up class and todays water aerobics and as i sat down feeling the pain i looked at the bag of popcorn in my hand and then i handed it to hubby and said you know i just cant eat that i worked too hard its simply not worth it to me. After all its like a drug if u will only a temporary high. Now was it hard you bet it was i could almost taste it and felt my taste buds tingle from the smell but i can and will do this. Im stronger then buttery popcorn. So im pleased to say not one morsel of that sinnful treat touched my lips. At first i felt i might cry but then i got a small and sense of pride i had really did it.
