Dear Spark Friends
I want to express my thanks and love to all of you who sent me goodies, visited my page or leave me comments on my feed. You are all so wonderful and I love you. The beautiful complements that I received is starting to swell my head..hee..hee...You guys never give up on me eventhough I hardly have time to posts or keep track of you. You are always in my thoughts and my heart.

As you all know, we arrived from Thailand last month. Spent the month getting settled into our new place that we rented by the lake for the summer. It's an old cottage but we love it and it's new to us :)

We're on the road again...we left to go visit our son and family, grandkids and friends for the next 2 weeks. Tonight our 20 year old grandaughter has invited us for dinner. Tomorrow we're leaving further up North to pick up my Mother-In-Law and take her on a small trip. She's 84 and we don't see her all winter so it's important to spend quality time with her. We will also take her to our cottage to show her where we live now and then drive her back home in a week.

I have not been eating very healthy or exercising. I'm gaining a lot of belly fat and my stomach is suffering due to it. I have not been treating my body the way it should be treated. I'm very disappointed in myself once again. I do this every year and I just don't seem to learn my lesson :( I know that when I get home, I will get back at eating healthier but still...why can't I learn to do it all the time. I don't need to eat all the desert that they feed me...I don't need to eat more than I should. I just can't seem to drill that into my head. I think it's still an addiction to food that I have. Needless to say that I don't exercise either. Ok...I've made all my confessions now, I've been negative enough for the day and I have to pick up my feet and start again. I CAN DO IT!

Many of you are asking me how my foot is. For those who don't know, my husband dropped a 25 lb dumbell on my foot last week. I thought it was broken, didn't go for Xrays but I think it's only badly bruised cause it swells up when I stand too long and after 1/2 hour walk the other day, it was extremely sore and I could hardly walk on it anymore. I guess it will take time, but I have to be grateful that it was not broken. I do not want anymore broken bones at my age.

So, that's about all that's going on with me. I'm always with you in thoughts & spirit as well.

Lots of hugs & love

    Sending you lots of luv and happy vibes. You don't say anything about your meditation. Can you keep that up or is the time with your family to short for that now?

    Balance in life... It is something that had me scratch my head for a long time. I came to the conclusion yes, there is balance but not all in one day, but over a period of time. I am sure it is the same for you.

    Do what you can and scatter joy. That is your main job now.

    Take it easy on that foot. Sometimes it is hard to do but we must take care of ourselves so we can take care of everyone else.
    Have a wonderful time catching up with your family.

    I hope your foot feels better soon. I know you WILL do all those good things for yourself. I have to remind myself all the time that I'm still practicing at it! Have a wonderful time with your family, Sue!
