'i'm back in the saddle again!:

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Well, spark friends; it;s been a long, long, time. I see my last blog was on October 13th of last year. Since then, I have 1)had my dad die after a horrible time of trying t o find out what was going on 2)have my mom get in a car accident which broke her back on Christmas eve, and 3)finally lost my house to foreclosure this month. Life has a horrible way of kicking you in the b___ when you think it is finally settling down. "News flash" there is no such thing as a quiet life, and if there was, "who would want to live it?!" As for me, I am happy for the chance to at least have found something worth living for, worth crying for,and ultimately, worth dying for!!!!Rock on my wonderfully precious Spark friends -your fighting spirits never cease to make me smile!

    It's truly wonderful to hear from you. You sure have been through some rough times.

    I'm so sorry to hear about you dad and mom. I have lost one parent and dealt with medical problems with the other.

    I'm also sorry about your house. I know how hard you tried to avoid this.

    But, you are right, we all go through rough times and some of us more than others. I have had more than my fair share as well. We are tough and we will make it.

    Keep in touch!! emoticon emoticon

    You probably don't remember me, but I remember you........I'm the sparkie formerly known as MRE1956 - a few months back I essentially "killed off" that persona as it was getting too toxic to maintain (I almost left the site completely)........I'm still a bit on the cranky side at times, but maintaining a more positive (somewhat) Spark persona is helping my mood, somewhat - and I'm facing a few challenges myself, though nowhere to the extent that you are.

    I am so, so sorry that you've had to deal with all that - and it's great that you're back!
