Last Blog, Gratuitous Daisy Photos :)

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I enjoyed my brief time at Mom's on New Year's Day with most of my relatives gathered around (only my sister's oldest two were absent -one due to work)
We basically sat around and ate and played ball with Daisy:
Raring to go:

Love this pose she did waiting for it to be released:

She was as usual, in constant motion and I got just a blur lunging for the ball. In the background is my brother taking photos with his new fancy camera and my sister-in-law and their daughter:

I love the wrinkles on her forehead as she is so intent and focused:

I am not in a great place right now. Lack of sleep, pain, and soon to be busy once again, I am struggling to keep up my Sparking, my exercising, my good eating habits. I am still getting friend adds which is frustrating as they obviously don't even bother to read my page requesting no more friends as I struggle to keep up with my busy current friends' activities. If my page is offline I won't have to deal with it anymore. I will still do status updates on my friend feeds and Facebook.
I will be trying my best to keep up with you all, no matter how long it takes to get around. Just know I am always thinking of you and your journeys as I enjoy following along and being with you in spirit and cheering you on.
Make 2013 your best year yet! You can do it!!

    First off, Daisy is WAY cute! She just look so spunky and energetic! As for keeping up with us here in spark land, don't worry a thing about it. If you are in a bad place right now with pain and lack of sleep, then don't add more stress by worrying about keeping up with this right now. You first need to take care of you, and then the rest will follow. I think any one of your friends would agree that you are one of the most devoted sparkfriends there is, and so we all know that your heart is with us always, cheering us along--even during the times when you have to let go for a while. Take care of you, and know that your friends have your back 100% and hope the very best for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love Daisy but am so sorry to hear you aren't in a goo place right now. Please ignore the following advice if it doesn't ring true for you but you are just to wonderful not to add as a friend. However you don't need to feel you have to keep in touch with everyone. I felt the same way, I was even afraid to add friends fearing overload and expectations.

    Instead of dealing with everyone, I get back to those I can or really connect with ( like you :) ) and just give a warm status update to everyone once in awhile. If we can't be happy with that, and allow you your comfort zone then we aren't very good spark friends. I have even, on occasion not friended people who friended me just because I didn't feel the connection they apparently did. Just remember, this is your space, don't let any of us stop you from owning it totally. Much love light and hugs coming your way. When your ready look me up. Come back when you're ready we'll be here waiting with open arms. CJ

    Love the new Daisy pics: she is a beauty! And: SHE is in a good place, obviously!

    But I'm so sorry YOU are not in a good place.

    Please do what you need to do to take care of yourself. We all understand. We will continue to care about you. Don't feel you need to be in touch when you've got so many burdens. Please.

    You need to put YOU first, like with the oxygen masks on the airplanes. Hang in there, Linda! I shall continue to think of you each day as I Spark, and you know those who care about you do so whether you're actively writing or not!

    emoticon Sparking is about living your real life.

    emoticon I just would NOT Worry about any of US, Linda. We know you are there for us, but if you can't comment and visit EVERY Day that will NOT change how we feel about you. Or how we KNOW that you feel about US! Although I do love seeing you on My Friend Feed!!
    emoticon I am glad that you had a Great Christmas Day with your Family & Daisy. She is Gorgeous!!
    emoticon Take Care of YOU, and we will Visit Whenever you can.
