emoticon Welcome to the team, the more activity the better. Everybody has stress and it helps to post about it, joke about it, whatever one needs to express it..I have been busy gardening so Have not posted as often plus the chiropractor doesn't want me sitting here for longer than 20 minutes at a time but with this heat there is more time inside to post. Enjoy the team and all the other info to see. Georgine emoticon

Well, CAPTAINMORGAN2, I noticed your comment some time back that there are 789 members and not all active. I just made member 800, so I hope to help you out and be present more than I have on Sparks in general for the last year.

And yes, there's a lot of stress and busyness in my life, but I'm actually on doctor's orders to slow down and de-stress or I'm on my way to a stroke (and I'm only 42!), hence why I just signed up.

I look forward to getting to know a few of you. emoticon for the opportunity.

Ready for bed again! Just enjoyed the day doing just what i wanted to so need to get busy again tomorrow. I think being retired gives me too much time and i can't seem to get organized and it was a year in March since i retired to take care of my husband. He is doing most things on his own now so i have a lot of time and find myself wasting it it too much.I certainly should be staying on program both food and exercise. Anyway, it is still cold here, some snow still on the grass. i don't like hot temps but sure would like some warm days! Hope all is well with you, Georgine emoticon

You are probably right. I have my own issues with time partly because i got interested in playing some of the games with friends. I had gone to a 2 day seminar for caregivers and one of the things i always remember is telling us to use our brains with reading, crosswords, games etc. but not to keep doing the same things all the time. Anyway, has me trying to set a time for everything as i do enjoy Sparks, Facebook (see my great grandson's and postings from family and friends) so i try to do everything and it gets out of hand but i try to touch base if only with a few words. Oh well, each person has to do what they can with the time they have. It is the exercise i keep leaving out and I am not consistent with posting food etc. So, i need to organize my time too. I just heard our forecast for at least an inch of snow again. Trouble is, it rains first so just makes an icy mess. Enuff gabbing, time for bed. Georgine emoticon

CAPTAINMORGAN2 - I think that there is just so very much for us all, to be doing
all the time - that we find that we simply CANNOT do it all ! I think that only some
of us have the luxury of time, that we can afford to spend on SparkPeople !
I feel that we are truly Blessed !

Nancy, I didn't write it, I got it from an email in a Yahoo group I belong to. Go ahead and use it, just put AUTHOR UNKNOWN above or at the bottom of it. :)

I truly believe that this works in any situation. I have had jobs where only a couple of those things were present and it really showed. The group just didn't work well and there was a lot of conflict and struggle without any improvements.

I really loved this; would it be okay if I shared it with the team I lead?

Thanks, Sheri, a lot to think about. I know this group has been a great teaching group. It would be great if it evolved into a wonderful support group. In some ways it has been and in other ways there is a lot of room for potential. I know that some times I get busy or occupied and I miss out for a week and then I end up catching up. But, thanks for your ideas. I hope that we can see where this takes us... emoticon

Please add your ideas as well. What do you think makes a group...a group? What makes a good, strong Team/Group? Here's what I think:

What a group Is made of !!!!!



The Owners
Cause she/he
Is the one's who shows
Their love and passion
Through words and deeds.
Never gives up on their group
No matter what the odds.


The Moderators
They give freely
Of themselves and try
To help out when they can.
They are usually the ones
Welcoming new members
Making them feel at home

Sharing
Sharing shows you care
About others happiness
And respect the Rules
Of being in that group.

Caring
Caring enough to take
A few minutes out of your day
To ask about someone's
Family, health or job
Can make all the difference
In the world to a person.
Who knows ...
You may have been
The only person
Who cared enough to ask.

Friendship
Through making comments
To others and reading their sends
You make them Feel like
Their send was worth
Taking the time to send.
In turn, you get to know
A little bit about
Each others hearts.

Laughter
When you make someone smile,
Its like giving a gift
To their soul and Sometimes
You might just make their day.

Surprises
When you surprise
Someone with something
That you know they love to get,
You make that person feel
So important and happy
That someone thought About them.

Teasing
Teasing others is good
If in good taste.
Lets others know
You are alive.

Saying Thank You
Means a lot because you know
You touched that person somehow
And just Makes for
A good day for them.

~ MOST OF ALL ~
YOU
THE MEMBERS!
Without the Members
We wouldn't have
The:
Sharing,
Caring,
Friendships,
Surprises,
'Teasing
Or the
Thank You's
That makes everyone
Feel special
If not but
For a minute
Of their hectic day.
