Rise & Shine. . .

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Good Day Sparkfam!! Its a beautiful day here in Chicago with the sun shining & a 40% chance of showers later but I won't worry about that. The sun is warm & I will show up & face this day head on. I did got up with a word from the Lord with Joyce Meyer for my soul. Then rejoiced & did Jillian this morning & had raisin bran with 1%milk. I trying not to over do my caloric intake so that I can soon see some results. I know I should be probably eating total raisin bran but I'm not there yet. I will have a turkey on honey wheat toast for lunch & a spinach salad with balsamic vinegar. For dinner grilled chicken & spaghetti. I know that my spaghetti packs a punch with sauces & bbq sauce so I try to hold back. Oh did I say I didn't use whole grain pastas? Oh well, you live & learn & I'm so on board for living. How bout you? Did you rise up & see the sun shining & faced the day with a smile to all those you love? Or did you drag out of bed & had to have a cup of coffee to get you ready for your day? Either way, it starts & ends with you, show up for the rest of your life on a daily basis.

On another note, I got a rose yesterday from a co-worker & that really made my day. When I got home my best friend rang the bell with her hands full of a purple pillowcase filled with a 27 in flat screen tv. Maybe I didn't tell you my tv in my bedroom is on the fritz so I wanted to buy hers but she wouldn't hear of it & neither would I. So I have a brand new gently used tv! emoticon I dressed up for work today cause I just didn't feel like wearing another pair of jeans. So I get to work & there's a box under my desk. Grumpy old me is like who in the world put the box under my desk is gonna get it. Well, I got to beautiful pothos plants one in beautiful orange planter. So I'm gonna get it! lol So then my co-worker bought us a dozen roses & she split them with me. So I am surrounded my light & life today & what a way to bring in my birthday month. My day isn't until the 11th of April but boy oh boy, do I feel so blessed to have beautiful people that think of me & spread love all around. I'm gonna breathe cause if I get anything else, I am gonna cry. . . .

God bless & enjoy everyday Sparkfam!
