Welcome and so sorry to hear of your circumstances. I hope that his leaving will make room in your life for all of the blessings that you and your girls deserve. You deserve to take exquisite care of yourself and you can learn to do so here at Spark!

You have not set up a Spark Page (or if you have it is not showing on your post) so please do that ASAP. Our Spark Pages are our "Homes" where we go to visit friends.

Here is my standard advice to "newbies"....

(¯`♥´¯) .♥.•*¨`*♫.♥
.´*.¸.•´♥ Welcome to Spark People! Welcome to Spark Blogging!

One thing I would suggest is: Keep collecting Spark Friends like candy!! It is calorie free and they always give you something to "chew on"!!

You can just "friend" need to ask. We are friendly and don't bite!

You can find motivation and inspiration from everyone here, even those that are struggling (because you know how they feel!!) Welcome new people, Join teams, blog, join challenges, blog, be excited, blog. And did I mention: blog? The future fabulous you will want to look back at your journey and will want to encourage others!! When the excitement wanes (it WILL!!) put down your pom poms and "Power Pose" in the background, (but don't leave and don't do too much damage) and wait for the tide to turn...pick up your oars and keep rowing.

If you want to know what Power Posing is, see this link:

You can do this!!
