Saturday, July 06, 2013

I've had a good & sad day both today. I got to teach 3 hours of swim lessons to the pre-schoolers today. Then I had to go to a funeral at my church. The 22 year old son of some church members committed suicide this week. It was so very sad. I cannot imagine their pain. Afterwards I had to go back and teach a deep water class & an adult swim lesson. Now I am home Sparking & watching CHILLER channel. with my granddaughter. I hope that you're all having a FUN & FIT weekend.

My food is good, below goal. My exercise is good, above goal. I am happy with my plan of action today.

    Oh, Dawn, what a life altering situation for the parents to have to face! I sit here weeping for them & for the unnecessary lose of a young life.

I commit to lifting prayer on the parent's & family's behalf as Holy Spirit bids me to do so.

God bless!

    Oh Dawn, I am so very sorry to learn of that child taking his own life. My heart goes out to you, his family and the community at this tragic loss.

I know I haven't been on Spark or around much at all in the last year, but something told me to be here right now. And good for you for still managing to keep your head above water, so to speak, during this sad time.

(((Hugs))) my dear friend
Blessed Be

    I'm sorry to hear about your friends Son. My nephew
also committed suicide so I somewhat of where you are
coming from. So sad that they can't get help and work
through their problems.

My prayers are with the family.

I am glad you are exercising a lot and keeping food under

I have been lax since I went on vacation, not terribly, but
I need to get back into 99% with program.

Happy Sunday,
