SPARKING is Better than TV!

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

emoticon Every evening after supper, I sit down with a cup of hot tea and go to my friends feed. I have 88 wonderful and active friends on SPARK. Your stories are full of pain, joy, intrigue, struggle, food, exercise, gardening, quilting, pets, motivation, and just the plain activities of daily living.

You all give a special meaning to my life even if it is only announcing 2 points or 100 today, posting a quote you especially liked, your weather, that your dog is better, that you lost 5 pounds, or ran your first race. You make me cry and pray when you lose your Mom or Dad, didn't get the job of your life, have children who are suffering, or haven't met your goal for the day, week, month, year, life.

I love when you post new pictures, change your name or avatar, share a secret.

I look forward to the blogs you create wheter 15 words or 1500. Friends, you have all given me a gift that I appreciate immensely.

So who care that I am TV illiterate, that I have no clue what the latest comedy or drama is. When the coworkers talk around the water cooler, I just smile and think how much better Spark is then TV. Thanks friends. Keep up the entertainment factor for me. I love ya all! emoticon emoticon

    A really great blog! Sparking is fun! We do not have cable or satellite either. But we do have Netflix and a ton of books. Thanks for stopping by my page with the nice welcome to the SP Community team.

    You make my day any time. I don't remember when I have been drawn to watch TV either but I am more a book junkie. Also when I switch on TV I want some thing to eat (HaHa!!!!!!!) Thank you for being a friend. By the way it is windy in Charlottetown (Grrrr).

    Love you

    I too have switched from my usual tv shows to my Sparks updates. (ok... honestly the kids shows that I ended up getting morphed into watching)... lol I really enjoy reading about others daily tidbits, or whatever is going on. Not that I don't post often myself.... too busy reading about others I guess. :) emoticon

    Very good blog! I too love Sparkpeople more than TV (now)! I have tons of shows recorded that I still have to watch. Every time I get time I'm on SP! It's a lot healthier!
