July 1 Canada and July 4 USA

Monday, July 01, 2013

Today I'm celebrating my country, including the fact that we are fighting back from a catastrophic flood that has not defeated us. Together, we are strong.
And I'm thinking of my Sparkbuddy from AZ who was evacuated from their summer home, as fire swept through their community killing 19 firefighters. I am so thankful that Eve, her husband and fur babies escaped safely. Neighbors and friends, including Sparkers, are expressing concern and offering support.
SparkPeople may be primarily focused on weight and health, but we all know that there are many challenges in life. We need to work hard, be the best we can be and lend a hand. Although it may be hard, July 4 needs to be a day of appreciation for all of the good that is part of the American way of life.

NOTHING CAN KEEP US DOWN, unless we let it.
