Sunday, September 30, 2018      12 comments

I would first like to thank all my wonderful Spark friends for being on this journey with me. I have learned a lot about each of you as I was learning about myself. Today I am grateful for each one of you AND that I have come to the last day o... Read more

The most wonderful thing to be grateful for is a new little person to love. Tom, Daisy and I just got back from a visit with my daughter and our perfect little grandson. She had just finished feeding him as we arrived, so I got to hold him for... Read more

Today I find myself so very grateful for a furnace that works and I turned it on today. I really wanted to wait at least until October but it's been so cold the last couple days. While I was out walking Daisy this morning, with a wind chill of... Read more

I received a phone call from my daughter just after 6 p.m. last night - the little guy has arrived. We visited for only a few minutes last night. She had a very long day and was very tired. Our new grandson does not have a name yet - my daugh... Read more

Well dear fellow Sparkers - I was hoping my gratitude for today would be the arrival of my new grandson because at 6 a.m. this morning I received a call from my daughter with what sounded like labor. She wanted to know if she should go to the h... Read more

I have to be honest with you all, it's becoming more and more challenging to think about all the things I am grateful for. There are so many that I probably just take them for granted. So I had to think awhile today. Last year my youngest... Read more

After my knee replacement surgery my physical therapist STRONGLY recommended that I join a gym. Being over 65 I had access to Silver & Fit through my insurance company which meant I could join for free. And since Lifetime Fitness was only a mi... Read more
So many things to be grateful for

Today is a beautiful fall day - finally. A perfect day to get some of the end of season yard work done, which I just finished. Cell phones can be a blessing. Twice now I've gotten a call from my pregnant daughter while out walking with Da... Read more
Day 22 of gratitudes

In keeping with the family theme I would like to say how grateful I am for the parents I had. In talking with people over the years I realize that although my mother was a bit overbearing at times (which is actually an understatement), I always... Read more

Yesterday I shared my twin sons with you all, but I also have 3 beautiful daughter with whom I am very grateful for! I was starting to think I wouldn't ever have children because I was 24 and had been married 4 years already with no sign of a c... Read more
Today I'm grateful for Surprises!

I have to be honest here - I haven't been feeling a whole lot of gratitude today. It's been raining, sometimes really heavy rain accompanied by thunder, lightening, and tornado watches, since the minute I got up today. That means no walk - and... Read more

I am grateful for a successful kick off of our Seeds Group. I honestly don't know why they are called Seeds but this is a small group of people from our church who get together once a week to do a bible study. We joined this group last year, t... Read more

Today I am grateful for the return of Fall! Like so many others, we have had several days of unseasonable heat and humidity and I'm not a fan of either. Yesterday afternoon the clouds came in and the rains came down - several hours earlier tha... Read more
Day 17 - and it's Lifetime Fitness

In my entire life I had never really thought much about joining a gym. When I was young I was a dancer. Dancers don't need strength equipment or treadmills or barbells, dancers get their exercise by, well, dancing! And it was great exercise. ... Read more
Sunday - Day 16

Well, being a Sunday is something to be grateful for all by itself. I love my morning walks with Daisy on Sundays because there is almost no traffic and no construction going on. It's the only day of the week that I can say my walk was very pe... Read more
