6 Month Sparkversary

Monday, January 09, 2012

So, my family has survived 6 months of SparkPeople mania on my part! I am so thankful for the tools and motivation that I continue to find. The articles, the tips, the accountability, the recipe helps and advice... I am continually blessed and encouraged by my participation here. But by far, the biggest benefit and surprise has been the welcoming, (and dare I say it? YES!) loving community that has developed around me! Thank you so much for your part in assisting me as I do my best to stick around for my hundreds of Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren!

I especially want to thank those who endured my feeble attempts to provide a smile in the early days of January. I really wanted to develop a habit of blogging SOMEthing on a daily basis. I don't feel qualified to give nutrition advice, and I don't think you're really interested in all my female (sometimes emotional) musings. I realize that the purpose of blogging on SparkPeople is for our mutual benefit primarily in the areas of physical and nutritional health. Laughter is healthy, right? So I thought, "Just a one liner... surely I can come up with one little snappy thought that will reduce stress, and add a minute or two to the lives of my friends."

Well, never fear. I'm not going to do that to you again; I promise. emoticon It would be different if I'd been operating on a full night of sleep one of those two days that I posted. emoticon Then perhaps I would have noticed that I said "Father Tim" when they really were from "Pastor Tim". It really would have helped if I'd noticed that they weren't even funny. emoticon I realize that one liners are not my thing. At least not in print. Around the table with my family is quite another thing!

For now, I'm still thinking on the right approach for a daily blog. I'm sure something will come to me, soon.

Today, I just wanted to let you know that you have BLESSED me! I'll never be able to repay you, or thank you enough! I read the stories of my SparkFriends and I am in awe of the daily shifts from uncertainty to confidence, and the slow, steady transformation from wavering hope to unwavering focus. What SparkGuy started, you all have fostered until it has become nourishment and sustenance.

For this, I thank you!
Many Blessings,

    I'm honored to be one of your spark friends!

Blogging.... I find that even when my blogs are something I need to write down for me they reach someone. You never know who is going through the very same thing or something quite similar. You'll find your niche!
