An Amazing, Exhausting Day. I am so overwhelmed.


Thursday, April 12, 2012

I posted a Blog in March and today it was a most popular motivational Blog.
I was happy that people liked it when I posted it.
I never thought much about it till I was asked permission to post it here on Spark and it was posted today.

I kept getting e-mails right from starting the computer when I got out of bed and it has been bringing them in rapidly for most of the day.
DH and I had Dr appointments when we left there were over 100, We took a walk till it rained I only managed two miles on the rail trail. It was nice till the rain became very heavy.
We returned home to 200 posts on the Blog, lots of GOODIES, many e-mails and messages on my page.

The goodies , e-mails and messages were easy to deal with.
The hundreds of comments on the Blog was very hard to follow. I would reply to one and several more would arrive. I had anticipated I would find some method to be able to reply to everyone but alas my computer skills are not that refined.

I found most of my friends since I recognized their names but finding their comments was much more difficult. I know I missed some of you my friends I hope I can find you tomorrow.

Thank you all for your nice comments, the feedback was amazing and appreciated. I should have anticipated a large number because Spark people are so generous with their encouragement and praise. That is what makes it such a wonderful community to be a part of.

I am so happy I found the book, then the site and then my wonderful amazing Spark friends.
I have been very lucky to have actually met several of them when I walked my first 5k. I never thought I would ever do that, neither did my Physician after my back surgery but when you want to do something and you want it hard enough you go for it and I succeeded. It was made possible by the support and encouragement of my DH and my Spark friends.

I have made plans to meet other Spark friends in other states and also in Maine. I am planning a sparking summer this year and DH and I have made some wonderful friends.

If you wrote on my Blog and I have missed you, please be assured I have read and appreciated all of the comments.
Thanks to all of you, all my amazing Spark Community friends.
Pat in Maine.
