Finally: spring into The Spark!
Sunday, April 20, 2008
I have been here since February 2nd and took all that time to read and surf around the website and I am so amazed by all the possibilities SparkPeople offers!
I have a complicated health problem, and I have a full time job, with a young boy to take care of, and bills to pay like everyone else. I do have a wonderful husband who provides and takes care of us and does everything he can, but sometimes, every little thing looks so BIG and overwhelming.
Something happened last week though: I took all my Saturday to clean the whole house, and I enjoyed it. Sunday was the commemorative ceremony for my father's death (he died of cancer last year, age 64).
And then it hit me, I finally had the Spark! Was it the smell of Spring, that beautiful sunshine, the sweet breeze, the warmth of the family, I do not know. But here I am, two months later, and I want that change!
I am ready to become part of that beautiful community, since I understand better now, all the power it provides to each and everyone who participates.
So here I am,
and welcome to my new life!
