I just received a sweet message from one of my lovely Spark Friends. The thought, and the idea, was really quite nice, but alas, I first saw this "chain mail" or "SPAM", back in January 2011. It was sent as a "Beautiful Woman Award" and although the sentiment is quite lovely, I also remember that a message had gone out to let everyone know that Spark People totally frowns upon this type of message being sent out.
I can well understand their feelings and although well intentioned, I would tend to agree with Spark People. The "Beautiful Woman..." message not only gives a loving compliment, but also specifies that you HAVE to paste that same message on the "wall" (sounds like Face book to me) "of 8 women who deserve it." Well now, let it be known that I Ruby Claire believe that ALL my friends on Spark People are deserving of that award, not just EIGHT (8) women. And what about the men who are also struggling & working so hard to reach their goals, aren't they as beautiful, inside AND out, as the women. I say that ALL my Spark Friends are TRULY beautiful people and deserve a REAL award for all the help & support they always so lovingly give to others.
Keep up the good fight, dear friends, don't let the struggles and the set backs knock you out. Oh sure, you may get a little woozy, but shake it off. Pick yourself up off that tarmac, get back on your feet and keep striving toward your goals. This is the ONLY place where you can be in two places at once, you are in the ring fighting the fight of your life, FOR your life, while at the same time you are the cheer leaders, the pep squad rallying to support the other players in this game of life. What an AWESOME place to be, right here on Spark People.
For the battle has just begun.
Don't wait, dominate,
For you are number 1!
Give yourselves a GIANT pat on the back, a round of applause, a resounding shout, "YAHOO!" You ALL deserve it!
I, Ruby Claire, wish to bestow on ALL my friends this BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE AWARD! Please accept it as a token of my love and admiration of you. You are ALL BEAUTIFUL people!!
Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to read my blog and thanks for taking the time to lend support.
