The Best of Times & The Worst of Times

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I've been MIA for a couple of weeks. Yes, I've done some lame Sparking from my cell phone to read blogs when I could, do a quickie check-in or halfway log my food. I had a throat and sinus infection that I tried to self-medicate but finally broke down and went to the DR. One Z-Pak later and I'm a new woman!

I went to bed last night with a plan- get my hind parts into my spin class, track every morsel that crosses my lips and catch up with Spark. In the last hour I've cried, laughed out loud, been speechless, happy, sad, happy again, proud, and probably a little bit in between. I'm spent. Each time I read a blog, I feel priviledge to be included in someone's world which includes life, death, wins, losses, successes and failures. I think I've been out of sorts because I have been disconnected from our Spark communities. I have been so enriched by my Spark connections and I am far more successful when WE are together than where when WE are apart.

Now that I've gotten this off my little heart, I am going to go to bed and say my prayers on my knees the old fashion way like nana taught me...

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take
God bless mommy and daddy and nana, and grand-daddy, my little sister, my aunts, my uncles, neighbors, and each and every Sparkfriend & Sparker and the whole wide world.

    My Mom taught me that prayer, and I used it all throughout childhood. Glad you are feeling better!

    Why do some of us wait until things get bad until we go to the doctor's? I am the same way. I am glad you are doing better now.

I have no doubt that you will reach your goals.

Love the prayer!

    Very happy that you are feeling better; sinus infections are just awful. I'm so glad we get to catch up with you tonight! Sweet dreams, my dear friend.

    You can do this. Make sure you're really feeling better (which it sounds like you might be), then get back in action. This is a tough time of year to focus on yourself and your own goals.
