I See You!

Monday, October 14, 2013

YOU ARE SPECIAL.

I mean it! For those of us who have been significantly overweight, or who have been in an abusive relationship, or who are alone, or underappreciated by our boss, children, spouse, etc., it is often very hard to believe that about ourselves. So I just want to take a moment and let you know how much you all mean to me and what a difference you have made in my life and my weight loss journey.

Today someone I have never interacted with before on SP sent me a goodie, just because I posted in a huddle that I needed support. It was all I needed to turn around what had been a very stressful morning. That's what spark people is all about...encouragement and support. Together we are stronger. Together we will succeed.

If you have ever sent me a spark goodie, read one of my blogs (and this one counts, so I mean YOU!), answered one of my message board questions, inquired on my spark page as to how I am doing, given advice or encouragement, "liked" a status, or offered your cyber friendship....THANK YOU!!! It means the world to me, and I only hope that I am able to reciprocate in some small way.

When I was a preschooler in the late 1960s, there was a t.v. show called Romper Room. When I was not galloping around my coffee table with my broom/pretend hobby horse, my eyes would be glued to the television, waiting for the teacher to look in her magic mirror and "see" me.

Although she never said, "I see Laura", I am here to say that I SEE YOU! When I look in my magic computer screen, I see so many wonderful sparklers who share their love, photos, hugs, woo hoos, and motivational quotes, including....

GINGERLICIOUS, who always, always, manages to remind me of my superpowers when I am at my weakest...
and PATSYB7, who spent 500 points to buy me lawn equipment!...
and HLTHHAPPINESS4C, who didn't forget me when I went on a break...
and TAMMYAND, who is such a positive person and writes nice things about me even when I'm crabby...
and BLESSED2BEME, who's perserverance in the face of difficulty reminds me that I don't have to sink into a depression every time life gets tough or I eat a cookie...
and KAILYNSTAR, who really makes me laugh out loud...
and MRSPRINCIPAL, who went above and beyond in helping me get my resume put together...
and FITMARY, who sent me skis as a reminder that I am never to old to learn something new...
and PHYLISSCR, who's faith blesses me more with every blog...
and JACKIE15108, who's willing to help me be accountable for non-weight loss goals...
and TURTLE69,who is so generous with her high fives, and thumbs ups, and bear hugs,...
and IXCHEL23, CANINE_MAMA, GOOZLEBEAR, and IUTRYTR who never fail to "like" my status.

Here's to my new sparkfriends, too...LIZSPRINGSTEEN, CHERYLE51, BETHLOVESBIKING, PANDBPARTNERS, NEELIXNKES, MOTEL MOM, and everyone else I am getting to know.

I see you! And you are pretty freaking special!

Thanks.
