Today is my 2nd SparkVersary

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Today is my 2nd SparkVersary.
when i found Sparkpeople 2 years ago i had no idea it would be such a wonderful place full of dreams and inspirations. i soon learned that this wonderful man Chris had created this site and gave it to us freely to use to save our own lives and become healthier people. he and his wonderful sparkteam provided us with all the tools we would need to help us achieve our goals and if that wasn't enough, he so graciously wrote a book as a follow up. i can not thank chris and sparkpeople enough for their generosity.

i had intended to blog about the miracles of Sparkpeople and the miracle that brought me here (you can read that one on my sparkpage), how it's changed my life and i lost 31 pounds. how i found my own spark family in the most amazing team.... the west highland white terrier fan team. this team has the most inspirational, motivating, encouraging group of supportive people. i love each of them and appreciate everyday with them. they are the best.

But today one of our own westie members is undergoing surgery for a brain tumor. i can think of no better way to spend this my 2nd SparkVersay than to ask everyone reading this to take a few minutes out of your busy day to pray for our beloved Kathy. she goes under the username FOSSE_OF_LOVE. i hope that you will put this blog or a link to her sparkpage on all your sparkteams and ask that each person send her prayers and good wishes. it will make her feel so loved and happy to see them when she is able to log on again. i know that miracles do happen here on sparkpeople and i want you all to join me in praying for one more miracle today for our kathy.

i thank you so much.

    Debra you have blessed me….a simple thank you seems so insufficient yet is the most gracious. I have to tell you that what has happened to me…by me putting my EGO to the side…..letting go and allowing God and all the greater Love and Energy of all to surround me has created nothing less than a miracle. We are Love and nothing can hold that back. Smiles softly…thank you.

    Happy Anniversary and by the way Spark wouldn't be the same without you! I have absolutely loved my time with you and the rest of the Westie team and hope we are still going strong (albeit thinner) in two more years. Thanks for being you!

I am praying for Kathy and hope we hear that she is out of surgery and doing well soon. Think positive thoughts. emoticon

    Happy SparkVersary, Debra, and thank you for a wonderful blog. You are so right about SparkPeople and the Westie Team. If it weren't for you and the other ladies there, I probably would have dropped off a long time ago; but as it is, I look forward to logging on every day to see what everyone is up to!

Thank you for putting out the word on Kathy - the more prayers, the better!

Great blog post! I cannot agree with you more about SparkPeople and the West Highland White Terrier Team. They are the best. Such a supportive group of people who are always there, whether we are laughing, crying or praying for one of the team.
Thanks so much for being one of the most motivational members of the group and one of my best SparkFriends! Congratulations on your second SparkVersary and to your continued weight loss--health gain.
