Meeting a SparkFriend in Person!!!

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Today has been an amazing day! LYNNANN43 and I met at a Ruby Tuesday's halfway between us. When I saw her silhouette (the light was bright behind her) and she saw me in full view, we immediately recognized each other and nearly jumped to the ceiling with joy!!!

We ordered healthy food and had fun catching up. (I had the spaghetti squash for the very 1st time ev-er and it was delish). Of course, we have kinda sorta kept up with each other for how many years since we both have been on SP for lots?! We straightened out a few things we had wrong about each other's lives and added details that can only really truly be shared face-to-face. We confirmed that we n-e-e-d each other more than can possibly be expressed in words. She told me that she has met more than 50 other SparkPeeps (imagine that!) and says I NEED to meet more cuz they all make a diff in our lives and help us stay the line, so to speak!

I LOVED ev'ry bless-ed minute we had together and it was obviously hard to part ways cuz we just kept on talking and talking and talking even when she took me to my hubby in Gander Mountain where he was checking out the fishing gear.

I am super-pumped! Thank YOU Lynn!!!

    That is so very cool. I've been able to meet 3 Sparkers so far - The one and only Maha, Kathy (ATransformation) and Rebecca. It is a wonderful experience and there's NEVER a lack of what to talk about.

    I'm so happy for both of you!!

    It's such a great thing when Sparkers get together for real! I'm blessed to have some special members living in the area around me. We've had some great gatherings, pot lucks, cross country skiing, kayaking, etc.
