We cannot do anything about the weather.
We cannot do anything about others.


We can celebrate our own lives for being who we are..

Creative Individuals
Caring, Nurturing, and Kind

Whether we are single, married, or in our wonderful golden years
learn about yourselves and that around you.

Financial times are hard, which put pressure on us.

Look into ways to making you feel you are in control.

Walking & Dancing
Girls Night Out

Thing is, get others to know what you have that is special and what we see as special.

No matter our size, we are all mentors, teachers, and students.

The best way to help ourselves sometimes is to offer help to others who need it.

In the end, whether it be physical, emotional, or mental...

We can pass onto the next generation tools to teach others that we have found that work for us.

If you have a talent. Have your own little show and tell with the neighborhood friends and have them show as well.

This is how sororities have started.

Feel free to call yours a SPARK Community that SNAPS!

Remember YOU are AWESOME! So SNAP to it and SHINE!

Love & Light,
