Today I went for a walk in the rose garden here. As I was walking, I was thinking how much I have to be thankful for. I'm thankful that I can walk, when with a brain stem stroke, many can't. I'm thankful that the Lord led me to find SparkPeople and for the many useful features of it. But most of all, I am thankful for the people who open themselves up, who share unashamedly about what is going on in their life, for those who have motivated me, and continue to. I'm thankful for the many who have taken time out of their own busy lives to answer questions or encourage me when I am discouraged. I'm thankful for the fellowship of members here, all on the same journey, in the many different places we are. So many of you have lifted me when the day was hard, when I wanted to give up, I knew I could go back and read IndyGirl's blogs and say THIS can work. No matter what is going on, whether it is good or bad, I know I can log onto SparkPeople and have SparkFriends to rejoice with, encourage me, or pick me back up. Each little note on my sparkpage, email, like of something I have said, or sparkgoodie I get makes me smile, makes me get on that bike, go for that walk - despite the pain, and leave that candy fridge that my mother has closed. So thank you dear SparkFriends, for weathering this journey and the trials it brings with me. Love to you all. emoticon emoticon
