May I suggest you guys check out this guy's story. His daughter had GBS (GBS is Guillain-Barr syndrome - it is a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system.) and this January he decided he was going to do a 5K run for her as she is no longer able to run.
Well, 6/6/08 was his goal date, and he made a YouTube video for her as he couldn't be with her physically.

Here is his YouTube link:

Here is the link to his SparkPage:

May I also suggest you nominate him for a motivational spotlight?

It has been a sparkling, wonderful day. My son graduated UMASS today so I've been out most of the day. I did want to check inhere and say "hi" before going off to bed. It's been a long day!

I do hope and pray that things will work out well for those affected by the fire.

Is this a good time to wish everyone a Sparkling Saturday? emoticon

Actually, the lake is on fire, Lake O is very grassy, it is mixed with dense fog and makes visability horrible. The fires have been burning 2 weeks now.

Trish--
Is the smoke from brush fires or is it that planned field burning that I know is done in many rural areas to help with agriculture. I know that there has been a pretty bad drought in Florida and lots of fires recently. I have asthma too, as do my kids -- smoke and pollens are real problems. Good for you for getting in that walk! That's dedication.l

It's warm and sunny here in central Florida, my last day here (boohoo emoticon , not at all muggy--just breezy. Heading back north later tonight. My kids tell me it's been just as warm there as it is here. Maybe it will continue!
Super Saturday to you too!
