I have just had one of those days today…. I got to bed later than usual due to a lot going on the home front. Then when I got up I encountered a lot of extra stress. I was almost late for work – I got here with 2 minutes to spare and I’m normally here 15 to 20 mins early so I can get a feel of how the day had been here at work.
Last night, or really early this morning (however, you look at it depending on your schedule) I posted a couple different blogs and with all the changes that have happened I updated my goals as well as my personal page. Once I was done, I when to all the team pages that I am a member of and in the huddle I posted to check out my page.
I did that so everyone would know that I updated my page. That was all, just to let everyone know.
On a side note - Those of you that have read my past blogs about my “potatoes” (basically my family that likes the couch) know I don’t get a whole lot of support on the home front. Those of you who didn’t, well you vaguely know now. I think that I don’t get that much support from them because of all my past failures, and that they sort of believe in me but figure this is only a phase (hopefully they will catch on soon, that it’s not a phase…. I’ve done it for 4 months now; in the past a week here a couple days there, ya those were phases, but not this time) so maybe that is why they don’t support me very much yet. Or they may be afraid that I’ll force them into my new lifestyle and they aren’t ready to change yet… run off on, try to talk into, I hope but force, no I won’t do that.
Anyway, once I get into work tonight and go through my normal routine… start my paperwork, make a few rounds (checking on the at-risk youth I work with), once I’m settle in and I know all my youth are asleep I check my e-mail. Several e-mails brought me here to Sparks….
That’s when my tears just started flowing. Oh, this isn’t good, they’ve started again, and I’m at work and crying, even now as I type this.
Many of you left comments either on my blogs or on my Spark page, and even a couple spark mails, that said all sorts of nice things… without looking I recall phrases and words like – doing a really good job, you’re an inspiration, encouraged, inspired, congrats, and much much more….
Please don’t take this wrong, I always appreciate every comment I get and they always left my spirits and give me a boost to keep moving forward.
However, tonight when I went to read all these messages, I didn’t expect so many and for them to be so positive. Every one of you, and not just those today, have touched my heart with all your words of encouragement and positive feedback. I honestly do not think I would have gotten as far as I have with out the support of people here on Sparks.
As for all the comments and such today alone, I owe you all a special thank you….. It was not my goal to have people leave comments today, but only to let everyone know I had updated my page. Then after the day I had, to get on-line and find all this, so many of you supporting me you have really turned my day around.
Everyone, please know and understand when you leave comments for anyone, not just me, they can make a world of difference in that person’s day.
THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
The tears spilling over my cheeks are tears of happiness!
again and here are
for all of you.
