I Am Honored & Humbled

Surreal To Wake Up And See This Today

I have known for a couple of weeks that my story was going to run as a feature on the Spark People Blog but until last week, I thought it was going to be in July. Last week I got an email from the Spark PR department saying that they wanted to move it up to Father's Day.

e_there_for_my_3_kids


I said, really? Father's Day? WOW! THAT IS REALLY COOL!

So I am both honored and humbled to be featured in the blog. I am also honored and humbled that the story is in the Success Story section. It is still hard for me to believe that I can be considered a success.


Oh Crap, That Is ME!!!

Thank you to Spark for the honor. Thank you to the Spark Community (all of you) for your love and support through this entire journey! I may have had it within me, but you all helped to bring it out of me! Without you, I could not have done it! Love you all!

Embrace Your Possibilities

Good Day Sparkville
