Showers in the Spring

Thursday, September 16, 2010

I love my local Spark Team, Port Angeles and Surrounding Areas. But we have been lagging for a while, so it is time to Spark things up a bit!

Our fearless team leader, Darcey, has been battling the first trimester of pregnancy. Remember all that nausea and exhaustion? She has gone through it big time, along with some other life issues.

Darcey's baby is due toward the end of February, 2011.


I asked Darcey if I could throw a baby shower for her, and her reply is that she will "think about it".

I have, obviously, already "thought about it".

I am having a shower for her, and I want it to be from our Spark Team.

The gala celebration will be held at my house, in Sequim, WA in the spring sometime. As time draws nearer, I will give the date, time and address.

Now here is what I need you guys to do.

1. Send me an email that you are coming. You will be put on my list, so I will need to contact you by snail mail for the invites. Therefore, I will need some personal information about you that you normally do not give out.

2. Or, if you prefer me to contact you via Spark, I will figure a way to do that.


4. Our team has been lagging the last several months, and we need to pull together again. That means PARTICIPATION.

Here, we get the support, encouragement and tips on how to get ourselves into healthy shape.

Here, we get the momentum to keep going.

Here, we form new friendships that can last a lifetime.

Here, we are instigated to explore our beautiful outdoors.

Here, we get ideas about new foods, new interests and community spirit.

Here, we are not alone.

Here, we do not have to spend a boat load of money to belong.

Here, we can vent our frustrations, sorrows, difficulties.

Here, we can blow our own horn, and no one says we are being conceited. In fact, when we do blow our horns, the Team joins in and blows theirs for us too.

Here we learn how to celebrate ourselves.

But there is one little key to all of the above.


So get off your duffs and join in already! You don't have any excuses not to!!

See you on the boards!
