Just One

Thursday, June 24, 2010

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey.
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,

One life can make a difference,
You see, it's up to you!

Everything is okay...just no internet

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

We haven't had internet connection at home since last Thursday evening. We were away camping over the weekend. Our ISP tried to get us up and running on Sunday evening to no avail. We couldn't schedule a time for them to make a home visit until this Thursday evening.
Hopefully everything will be up and running again then!

I have a week full of appointments for myself and my brother. I tried to get connected at the library yesterday, but my netbook just wouldn't connect. Today I'm at the hospital waiting while my brother has an eye appointment. The connection keeps coming and going, so I want to get this posted before losing connection...again!

Look for me to be around on Friday. I'm having SP withdrawal, plus my 1st Sparkversary was this past Sunday...talk about timing!

Miss you, see you soon!

Wishing you lots of luck with your ISP. The frustration of those problems knows no bounds, and I'm grateful we don't often have those problems...though now that I've said that, we'll probably have a spate of 'em. Murphy's Law!

Home again!

Monday, June 07, 2010

Arrived home late this afternoon! So glad to be home and with my kitties again. They are all over me! Temp here is 64F......brrr!!!! I had gotten so used to those 90 degrees in GA. I'm freezing here now. I sure don't miss the humidity, though.

We had a great trip home. Scenery was just beautiful especially some of the mountains in NC and VA. I live in the mountains, and GA was so flat.

I have a ton of things to get done this evening as I will be out for appointments all day tomorrow.
Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm home safe and sound :)

    It's good to hear you are home again safely and that your kitties are glad to see you. The wedding plans here are chugging along too. We only have about 35 days to go till my daughter's big day! It's also cooler here now that winter has 'offically' arrived in Australia (June 1st) though I am sure your temp there are still cooler than ours :)

Enjoy your week!

Many Thanks!

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

For the past several days I've been staying with my son and his fiancee in Georgia. It's my first visit since he moved here last fall. What exciting and busy times, preparing for their upcoming wedding in October! I brought a to-do list with me and have been slowly crossing items off as they are completed. Of course, I've been adding a few things since arriving, too :)

I want to thank you all for your continued support on my friend feed, comments on my page, and goodies. I just haven't had the time to contact each of you individually, but wanted to let you know how much it means to me!

I will be home next week, but have a full week of appointments, then will be going camping the following weekend. Busy, busy times! I'm trying to do as much Sparking as possible, but my time online will be limited for the most part until mid-July.

Thanks for understanding!

Congratulations to all!

Please try and pace yourself and not get too worn out.
