Wow! I opened my email this evening to find a LOT of messages titled “A New Comment on Your SparkPage.” Boy was I confused. Usually, I see this subject once or twice a week, but now I see 12 “New Comments” and on top of those I see “You Have Been Given a New Spark Goodie” 5 times! Now I’m really confused. The first thing that goes through my mind is, “Why?” So I open the first message and click on the link to my page. I scroll down and note after note contains congratulations for being Battle Warrior of the Week! Me? Again what goes through my mind is, “Why?” Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely honored. People say I motivate them through my words and actions, but what they don’t understand is that I get more from them, from YOU than I think I ever give. Seeing how each person pushes through struggles, what they do to succeed is the real inspiration. Thank you for keeping me going. I promise to continue to put one foot in front of the other, just join me and we can all win this battle! Thank you all for your warm comments and the goodies fellow warriors. Battle On!
I originally thought I’d post this as a note on a thread, but as I read and re-read it I felt I needed to post it as a blog. I don’t know why, I think I needed to say, “Thank You” to all who have kept me going.
P.S. For those of you who aren’t part of the team, being voted Battle Warrior of the Week is a major honor on the 8 Week Battle team.
