Acimpeggy, I do hope your recovery is speedy and complete!

I smiled all day at my 4 month old grand daughter, she is a smiling bundle of joy and I was babysitting her. (Yesterday)

UNANSWERED PRAYER The preacher's 5 year-old daughter noticed that her father always paused and bowed his head for a moment before starting his sermon. One day, she asked him why. "Well, Honey," he began, proud that his daughter was so observant of his messages. "I'm asking the Lord to help me preach a good sermon." "How come He doesn't answer it?" she asked.



BEING THANKFUL A Rabbi said to a precocious six-year-old boy, "So your mother says your prayers for you each night? That's very commendable. What does she say?" The little boy replied, "Thank God he's in bed!"



ALL MEN / ALL GIRLS When my daughter, Kelli, said her bedtime prayers, she would bless every family member, every friend, and every animal (current and past). For several weeks, after we had finished the nightly prayer, Kelli would say, "And all girls." This soon became part of her nightly routine, to include this closing. My curiosity got the best of me and I asked her, "Kelli, why do you always add the part about all girls?" Her response, "Because everybody always finish their prayers by saying 'All Men'!



SAY A PRAYER Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at his Grandmother's house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When Little Johnny received his plate, he started eating right away. "Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer." said his mother. "I don't need to," the boy replied. "Of course, you do" his mother insisted. "We always say a prayer before eating at our house." "That's at our house" Johnny explained. "But this is Grandma's house and she knows how to cook.

Hello all! New to the team! I work as a tutor in an elementary school and I overheard one of the other tutor's lessons. She was teaching her students about words that end in -ing. One of her students piped up and said, "My grandma works at ING!" Too cute!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

at GatorJoy - 4 is such a fun age! Hope you both had fun :o)

I discovered I lost three pounds while resetting my goals!

I listened to SparkRadio earlier today while cleaning house and decided to start a new streak - I reset my goals and decided I would visit one SparkTeam and two SparkFriend a day... now I can always visit more if I have time but I figure this is achievable with out spending too much time on my behind not focusing on fitness. I figure if I am checking in with everyone daily it will encourage me to log my nutrition and fitness.

Today I am going to visit all my teams and leave this message so I can get started. Then I will begin rotating around.

I hope anyone who reads this has a fantastic day!

I heard a woman call in to a radio station telling a story how she got mad, stormed out of a meeting, slammed the door behind her and the lanyard around her neck her badge is clipped to got caught in the door, choked her a bit. She heard laughter in the room and had to knock on the door to get free.

I was howling laughing in the car on the way to work. People driving next to me must have I was nuts if they looked over!

I found it amusing that today, the ONE day all winter that I have no car and have to walk to work, it had to be snowing on the way there AND the way back. At least it's only 2 1/2 blocks and I added some bonus steps to my pedometer :)
I actually DO walk to work whenever the weather isn't TOO cold and it isn't snowing or raining. Just thought it was funny that when I had no choice whether to walk or not that the weather wouldn't be cooperating. But hey ... I am also 25 cents richer for walking today ... I found a quarter in the street on my way emoticon

I ran across a rerun of "Friends," which I used to watch at least once a day.
It had always made me laugh, no matter how many times I'd seen the episodes. Today, maybe since I hadn't seen it in awhile, I was ROFLMAO!!!

I am finding it rather amusing that today was supposed to be a snow make-up day from earlier in the season ... and there is no school today because of snow :P We just weren't meant to have school today ;)
Also makes me even happier because no school = no work for me since I'm a lunch lady at my daughter's school. Can't serve them food if they aren't there!

Time with my DH, just cuddling and relaxing, curled up in bed together, putting the stress of our living situation aside and just enjoying each other (DH is living with his elderly Mom full-time for now, to take care of her).

Talking to my oldest daughter just now made me laugh almost uncontrollably - she told me that twice this past week two different store clerks offered her a senior discount! She is 41!
I made her mad laughing, but the way she told me I had to laugh! She said before she told me to honestly answer the question, "How old do I look?" Then the story. Too funny!
I think I burned 100 calories! I should feel bad.......but no.

I watched an elderly man who walked slowly with a cane help his even more feeble wife, who had her own cane, get out of their car, then walk across the street. It took them 10 minutes to get out of the car, and another few minutes to cross the road. He took such good care of her, until they were in the middle of the street - at which time he quickened his slow pace a bit and left her alone in the middle of the street. She did make it across later by herself, after holding up traffic for what seemed like minutes. It made me smile! I wish I had taken a film of it!

Sadly, I don't remember even ONE "laugh" today... Not unless you count laughing through the pain... Looked at the irony in our difficult situations, and laughed at Life!

Not a lot of laughing lately; but it's peaceful and calm, with smiles more than guffaws... However, I went to the San Diego Natural History Museum with DD this week, and one of the hands-on exhibits got us to giggling SO hard, we couldn't stop! I don't remember the last time we literally laughed-til-we-cried at something innocuous and silly.

There was a set of color-coded blocks, each side with a drawing; the series of pictures showed how a fossil is made, from a dinosaur roaming the earth to kids looking at the fossil in a museum. You were to put the blocks in order; for example, the recording said to do the orange blocks first, and then let us know if we had lined them up correctly.

The blocks explained how the dinosaur fell into a river and died, and other animals ate at it, and gases bloated its belly, and then when one of them ripped open the belly the dino would sink... and as gross as this ALL sounds, each panel showed the action in detail. Both of us had the same reaction: the colors, cartoon drawings, blocks... THIS is for kids?!

Luckily, while we were giggling like maniacs, no one else objected!

At work today, a bride to be came in to get her gown altered. I saw her in the dress a month ago and we decided to wait a while since she was trying to lose a few lbs. Well she succeeded, she had lost a total of 47 lbs - 20 since I had last seen her, and her dress fit her way better than last month. She needs minimal alterations. When she saw herself in the mirror, with less in the dress, the pure joy she obviously felt made her beam with happiness! It was awesome to watch! I definitely had a huge smile today!

Today I told my DD about GS being interested in and learning to play the guitar, and she started to interrupt me... then she hesitated, so I continued. I told her I gave Scott's guitar to their nephew, and she started to laugh; she said she was going to suggest I give him Scott's guitar.

You know what they say, right?

My Lulu was in her car seat and she hollers at me while I'm driving I have to go pee! I say well we're almost home you just have to hold it. And she says sweetly, "I can't. I'm holding my HORSES!" ( Her little arms were full with her stuffed horsies)hehehe

Finding out 17-year-old GS is learning to play the guitar from his friend and videos on YouTube, and is saving up money to buy a guitar like his friend's, and realizing the guitar he wants to buy is exactly like the guitar sitting in your spare room, because DS son Scott taught himself to play guitar about the same age, and you inherited Scott's guitar when he was killed...

So you give the guitar to your grandson... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thank goodness for "Kaile Week"! Cuddling up in bed with my sweetie, munching on fresh veggies, and singing along with "Phantom of the Opera" on DVD. Later, Kaile dressed me up a bride, "styled" my hair, and married me off to Grandpa!

Kaile was sick and had to stay home from school - DH got her at 7am, and brought her to our house for the day. As she climbed into bed with me, she put her pillow on my stomach and laid down, cuddling up. My hubby whispered, "don't lay on Mimaw." Kaile whispered back, "but Mimaw
likes it that way!" By then I was fully awake, so I laughed and said,
"I do!" emoticon emoticon emoticon

I smiled today because I lost 1.6 pounds from last week and a friend on SP wrote I should be the best loser.

Thanks a bunch, Theresa

Positive self talk and seeking help when I need it will be my way to succeed.
