I'm struggling this morning, but it doesn't negate the gratitude in my heart for ALL God's gifts and goodness stored up for His children! I stand in AWE of His mercies--new every morning! Especially I'm grateful for His mercies regarding this LIFE-LONG journey to eating healthier, mindfully and moderately!!!! I've stumbled this week, and in some ways I feel very defeated this morning over that fact; however, the one who GETS BACK UP is not defeated! He is still in the fight! I'm not giving up!!!!!

"Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success."

F--FUNNY! Giving me a laugh when I needed it!

A--AWESOME! This is an understatement! But I do stand in awe of HOW MANY times my friends have come to my aid!!!!

T--THOUGHTFUL!!!! Goodies, notes, GIFTS in the mail, visits!!!! I can't get over the thoughtfulness of my friends on SP.

F--FESTIVE! WOW, the pages that my friends have CREATED! I have some pretty creative and FUN friends!!!!!

U--UNDERSTANDING! Even when I've blown it! My SparkFriends rally behind me! Thanks for such a GREAT community!!!!
