"THERE ONCE WAS A CHIOR OF ANGELS THAT SANG ABOUT A WORLD FULL OF JOY. PERHAPS WE'D HEAR THEM EVEN NOW IF WE WERE AS STILL AS SHEPHERDS" From my daily Angel by your side, calendar emoticon

I understand MANY of you do not believe in Angels, but I feel their presence all the time! You do not have to believe the same way I do, I just enjoy sharing what I 'hear & see' from them, with you. SP means the world to me, YOUR participation lightens my load. For that, I am VERY grateful! emoticon

Today is loving my DH emoticon (last year at this time he started getting VERY sick, I am helping him & me stay as healthy as possible); walking LADY LUCY THE WONDEROUS CIRCUS DOG, emoticon Zumba emoticon AND wrapping presents emoticon , working emoticon AND sending peace to the world emoticon emoticon My goodness, I am SO blessed for my amazing life! How are YOU? emoticon

ps... 12-23-14 Today we are working, making deliveries of our work. Playing with LUCY & last minute shopping! emoticon

ppss... 12-24-14 Joy to the world!!!!

    My guardian angel worked magic this year and I too feel blessed for continued good health and a loving family. The only sad part was my Denver dog passing away a month ago. He left a big empty hole in our lives, but we are all adjusting and grateful to have had him in our lives.

Have a very merry Christmas! emoticon

Quote from my Angel daily calendar! Photos from this & that:

Thursday, December 18, 2014

"In the lights & glimmer of modern Christmas decorations we see a tiny speck of the brilliance that is the reality angels see, share, & return to when their task on earth is complete. It's brilliance we can one day see for ourselves when our task is done well".

I LOVE twinkle lights! I have them up all year & add as they need changing. I know some people think it is tacky, but all I see is what it must look like INSIDE of a rainbow! emoticon

I've been involved in the activities of daily living, just like everyone. Taking time to smell the rain on the desert & spreading love & light to all who want to receive it. emoticon


I'm back to it, DH still healing, it's almost been a year! I am so happy we are together. We made a big turkey last night. VERY simple meal. Just a few veggie sides & pumpkin muffins for desert. YUMMY! emoticon I am SO grateful to the bird for sacrificing it's life to feed us. We are so blessed!

Happy Holidays! To all of Spark Land!

PS...12-21-14 "WINTER BEGINS WITH AN ICY CHILL AS CLEAR AS A CRYSTAL ANGEL SITTING BY THE WINDOW WATCHING FOR SNOW" from An Angel by Your Side Happy, healthy winter everyone! emoticon emoticon

    Well I just so happen to love your twinkle lights too ............. And if you see Angels, then you are capturing a glimpse of Heaven .......... so glad your DH is recovering. I also wish you a most wonderful Christmas ..... ((Hugs)) ........... I would put a pretty emoticon, but every time I try the whole thing flips out and the message is lost!! I can't figure for the life of me, but I have lost tons of posts to others blogs ...... Grrrrr....
and THANKS much for your nice words on my blog today ....... :)

A quote that came to me today. It is perfect for so many!

Friday, December 12, 2014

"Today may there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

Peace to all! emoticon

PS.. 12-13-14
A weekend of performing Marionettes for Angel Playshops! Bringing love to the planet! Let's ALL send our healing vibes to ourselves, too! We CAN do this!

ppss 12-14-14 dido

pppsss... 12-15-14 Life without love is like a ship without sails. (Yogi tea) Love as you want love!

12-16-14 A day of "flying" to all the fun activates in my life. Photo shoot for my 'regular' job, Sheppard Pilates, walking LUCY, mailing Xmas packages, usual life, fun things with DH! BE healthy! I'm FINALLY down 2#'s, YES!

12-17-14 My fortune cookie from last night, "STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT, YOUR WISH WILL COME TRUE TONIGHT" My wish is that EVERYONE on Spark has a healthy holiday season, including me! emoticon

I am promoting Spark People, tomorrow for the LV Santa 5K walk/run, FUN!!!! Check out my teams!!!

Friday, December 05, 2014

I am promoting Spark People emoticon , tomorrow for the LV Santa 5k emoticon . (My 4th year, the race's 10th, Ginnis World records emoticon will be counting us! We have won several years in a row for the world record of most Santa's emoticon walking, together at 1 time. Last year we beat out London AND Japan! With 10,000 Santas!) It is a fund raiser for Opportunity Village, a group of wonderful people, needing a little help emoticon ! I have my head dress & bird.... "Wild Thing" emoticon puppet all ready to go! It's actually 4 hours of walking including all the activities!! FUN! I'm thinking of everyone! emoticon

I am 'covering' several of my Spark teams! If you feel inspired to join any of them, they are all wonderful! I made a promise to myself to check in with each of my teams at least 1 time a week. There are some not listed, because they do not relate specifically to the event tomorrow. Sure would LOVE to meet some Sparkers there! emoticon

SP Class of March 11-17, 2012 (my home team)

Every Day is a New Start- (they support me like crazy!)

Losing it for the love of performing- (I am defiantly performing!)

SP Largest Virtual Weigh in- (I'm SURE to be down in weight after this race!)

We Love Trader Joes!- (I am taking snacks from there. Veggies, Protein bars etc)

Earth Angels- (I feel them all around, there is SO much joy at the event!)

Readers of the Spark- (Chris recommends we volunteer, I am, for Opportunity Village, by walking)

At Goal & Maintaining- (This team keeps me accountable & they are SO supportive!)

Christmas Present From Me- (I have my present all ready, I just need to get back to goal!)

The Las Vegas Santa 5K Walk/Run- (This team motivates me ALL year long!)

The Woo Hoo Jar Lounge- (I created "Wild Thing's" Costume for this team, she will be walking the race with me!)

Las Vegas Sparkers- (Of course!)

Angels on Earth- (I'm feeling like one!)

Zumba Lovers- (I do Zumba 3 times a week, all year long to stay attuned to my body!)

Old School Trades & Crafts- (Being a third generation marionette artist & performing tomorrow)

On the Lighter Side- ( This team is represented because they make me laugh & I will ALLOT!)

Spiritual Awaking- (This team is helping me do, just that!)

Purposeful Positivity- (Laughter has gotten me through SO much this past year!)

Sparkguy's 10 minute fitness- (Chris, I would not be here without you! You are a master Motivator!)

Head to Toe Beauty- (I will be putting on my best Santa Suite EVER!)

Pilates Lovers- (This team helps keep me motivated to be toned & inches DOWN! I use Sheppard Pilates DVD 2 or 3 times a week!)

Spark People Community Team- (Spreading the Spark to everyone!)

And my newest team:
Birding Across America- ("Wild Thing" is performing the walk with me!)

I am VERY excited! I have been walking our dog, LADY LUCY THE WONDEROUS CIRCUS DOG, all year to be able to walk this race for so many hours. The actual race is only about 1 hour, I can walk a mile in under 20 minutes! When I first tried for a mile, it took me 2 hours, no really! But with Chris's 'baby steps' I can do it much faster! LUCY, too! I also hike & enjoy the activates above. With Spark People I have learned to have my body THRIVE on the 51 pound weight release AND just keep MOVING! I have been typing for so long in this blog, I need to walk & work & get back to my amazing life! Thanks for commenting on this blog!

Love you all, we are in this together! Go Teams! emoticon

*~LIGHT emoticon


Last Year with "Wild Thing" under 6 layers of clothes, it was FREEZING!

My Zumba Class 1-2014


Angel Me for Halloween 2014


My DH & I 10 years ago! I'm back to this weight again! YEAH for me!

ps....12-8-14 It's back to work today! I'm finally rested! LUCY dog is happy to be able to go for a walk! 2 days off for her! The 5K was a BLAST! More later! Happy NEW week to get it right!

ppss... 12-9-2014 "I am courageous & clear. I speak words of truth & power!" by Edwene Gaines Thought for the day! Make it a GREAT one, OK?

pppsss.... 12-10-2014 "If Angels could wish, their wishes would not be for what we would do, but for what we would be in the mist of blessing as well as misfortune" by Angels by your side daily calendar

ppppssss.... 12-11-14 working; LUCY walk; Zumba; Xmas presents to send; more work; ready for Angel Workshop performances this weekend, both days! Be the HEALTH you want to be! I will too!

It's been a THANKFUL week, but truly a thankful life!

Saturday, November 29, 2014

I found this on my team SPARK PEOPLE'S LARGEST WEIGHT IN

Thanks to STORMIE62 "As for the things that we do enjoy, the pleasures and pastimes that recharged our souls, may they remain forever on a “to-do” list."

Isn't this sweet? I always have a big to do list. I'm happy for it, actually, as it means I am ALIVE & being creative! Right now I am training for next weekends spark people team LAS VEGAS SANTA 5K WALK/RUN emoticon .

I Also decided to start clearing out my sacred space/office/library/art studio/ etc. Reorganizing all the beautiful things I love. Putting away some to make room for me & new things that keep coming to me! Truly AMAZING how many Angel emoticon related figures & toys & tools are coming to me, as I am the 'frosting' for my special friends' workshop! We are bringing peace to the planet & teaching people how to be open to the love on this beautiful planet! emoticon

Of course I am also working with DH business & playing with him, playing with LUCY emoticon & LUCKY emoticon & starting to get ready for Christmas with presents starting to also fill my sacred space. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life to share love with. I love my life & am happy to be on this SP journey with all of you!

Let's make it the happiest, healthiest holiday season of all! OK?

*~L emoticon



From my new angel calendar: Angels sow acorns of good thoughts in our lives in hopes we will grow mighty oaks! Happy growing thru SP!

Today I learned about giving away my bonus spin SPoints! FUN! Training for Santa 5K, working & helping with spreading the love to the world! Here is some for YOU! Happy Monday!
