The path of our lives has many milestones. Some we choose to celebrate and others ignore.
They are often a time of reflection. Today is one of those days for me . One of my recurring themes has been friendship. The nature of our relationships change with time. Old friendships fade as new ones begin to blossom and grow. It is not the result of conflict but of growth and life experience. We are bonded by our memories of the past and shared experience. This will never change.

After a week of celebrating, the day finally arrived. I have now seen half a century. Many things surfaced. All of the changes I have seen, and my own development were brought to mind. I could enumerate many, but one thing really stood out. This being that I feel more connected and related to the wonderful individuals I have become acquainted with through Spark. It is as if I share the same kinship with them. There have been times when I have spent more time with them in a truly meaningful way.

I am grateful to each and everyone for the support, comments and inspiring goodies. I realize I am remiss in my responses. I have no words to express how much each of my Spark friends has touched me. They have been instrumental in helping me through some difficult times and helping to celebrate those which are special.
Thank you everyone, and keep your spark burning brightly. You never realize the affect you may have on another. emoticon emoticon

    Well said, I am new to this .. I joined yesterday and so far after reading a few stories, I am convinced that I came to the right place for support and encouragement I am turning 62 in June, I want to fully enjoy my retirement. Losing weight is always been hard for me, but I am positive that with this group of great people, I will have a better success story. Reading your blog today, inspired me. Thank you
