1/04/21 As you can see it has been a long time since I was on this site. So many things have happen in the passing years. The biggest thing is I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2015. Dec.1st of 2020 marked my five year anniversary so I am now considered in the 9% survival group. I know I've been blessed with these added years and have much to be thankful for and have so much in life to continue to live for. Grandchildren who are my heart and the best family you could ever ask for are at the top of my list. Surgery, Chemo and radiation took its toll on me and I lost quite a bit of weight which has stayed off for sometime, but in this last year my body must have recovered more and now is starting to take on weight again. I'm now up 25 pounds and say that is enough. so hear I go again to try again to take control of my life and live as well as I can and for as long. THIRD TIME'S A CHARM....so starting over more determined than ever. 8/13/12 " regained 36 # So it is back to what I know works....Without challenges, there would be no change". With raising two sets of twins and living in the country there was never a dull moment in our house. You would have thought that with all the chores, errands and chasing kids that would have been enough to keep the weight off. No such luck however and each year along with age came a few more pounds. The last of our children has left home, and here I am at 52 wallowing in all this personal time that I had coveted for so long and thinking it�s not all that its cracked up to be. Finding Sparks has been my spark and I�m looking forward to making over a new me with as much energy as I did raising our family. It really is time for T! 1/18/10 Lost 44# and then faded out... .....That was my first start last year which was going so well until I let family issues take control and gave up on myself. I'm back now, another year older, wiser and pulling myself together and putting me first again. YEAR TWO is going to be even better and I will reach my goal for nothing or nobody is going to stop me this time!!!. I Can, I Do, I Will!!!! 1/07/11 relost 15 # that I gained back and then 29 # more and then faded out again

    It’s very important to be clear about what you want and where you want to be. Be specific, write it down, look at and think about the goal often. Once we declare where we’re heading the Universe always begins to respond by gentle nudges, unexpected connections and all kinds of reinforcements. It’s not just fun to watch this happen, it will restore your faith in miracles too!

    You are not your age,
    nor the size of clothes you wear,
    You are not a weight,
    or the color of your hair.
    You are not your name,
    or the dimples in your cheeks.
    You are all the books you read,
    and all the words you speak.
    You are your croaky morning voice,
    and the smiles you try to hide.
    You’re the sweetness in your laughter,
    and every tear you’ve cried.
    You’re the songs you sing so loudly,
    when you know you’re all alone.
    You’re the places that you’ve been to,
    and the one that you call home.
    You’re the things that you believe in,
    and the people whom you love.
    You’re the photos in your bedroom,
    and the future you dream of,
    You’re made of so much beauty,
    but it seems that you forgot
    When you decided that you were defined,
    by all the things you’re not.

    Dare to Downshift

    Wouldn’t it be amazing to find a soft spot, flop down, and just be every once in a while? To stop the chores and the calls and the calendar chaos and do nothing but breathe? Well, guess what? You can! But only if you choose to. Beware of the constant energy that propels you to do more, be more, fix more, and achieve more – it doesn’t own you. You’re the one who shifted into third gear in the first place, and you’re the one who can put on the brakes anytime you need. Don’t fall for the lie that it all has to be done now, done perfectly, and done by you. You may do it all eventually (but, news flash – the world won’t end if you don’t). "

    This is an excerpt from Less Hustle, More Jesus by Shanna Noel.

    You are the creator of your own garden.
    Plant kindness and compassion.
    Water with love and gratitude.
    And you will enjoy beauty all the days of your life.
    *We are getting some much needed rain and a snow mix. Have a wonderful weekend.
