Good Morning...

Dear Spark Friends -

Just a note to update you...Cheryl is doing just fine and as it turns out, she does not need surgery on her back at the present time. The Bell's Palsy is almost gone with the Steroids and the B12 has improved her immensely. She is under a doctors care and going through tests to see if and where there is nerve damage that is leading to the numbness in her hands and other areas.

Upon the passing of Mr. Max, I will get through it. Actually, I feel a bit better since he is now gone - as it was his time. I have made a decision to stop posting at 'Expressions Poetry Journal. As you know the website was dedicated to the world of poetry and the love of animals. I need to turn the page of my life. I will be developing a new website in the future - subject unknown at this time...

I will not be coming back to SparkPeople at this time as I still need time to clear my head. I am feeling better now that I am not on the computer so much - I want to go back to my writing - for expressions is so much a part of me. My life is normally very calm and quiet (although I am outgoing and outspoken) LOL - so I want to get my life back, ya know?

To all of you - and to others who support me...thank you just isn't enough. When one lives alone outsiders fill the gap - you have done that. I know mentally you are there and the alone feeling is so much less. I will return eventually, I do come and visit and read what is going on here - but until then...

YOU ALL GO GET EM!!! Hang in there and do whatever it takes to make your lifestyle run smoothly. Because you know why??? Because you are #1 and you are worth it!

Love from Rhoda

    Hi there! I came across your page via a friend and now see that you need some 'down' time. I totally get that and agree that sparking can be very time consuming if you allow it. But I also truly believe in the benefit of human interaction and the goodness that it allows our souls and spirits to connect with others who understand our struggles and our hopes and dreams.

    I hope that after you have some 'alone' time that you miss your spark~sters and come back. I was excited about making a new friend...but know eventually when the time is right...if it is right.... I'll hear from you.

    Hugs, hugs, and MORE hugs!

    I'm glad that things are progressing for your daughter and I hope she finds answers soon to the numbness and tingling. I hope it is something simple to correct.

    I hope that you enjoy your time away and that it's a healing time for you as you have suffered a loss and some stress. Be good to yourself and promise us that you will return.

    Rhoda, I DO understand! I have been backing away from spark so much is counterproductive to me...I am sitting way too long and it does not define me nor is it a proof of my worth! The other day when spark was down some were in "withdrawl" they said...I was totally glad...and decided to hold back even more. I wish you well in all you do!
