I got turned around there for awhile and stopped doing the things that I used to do...the things that kept me healthy. You know how it is. Life happens and it can throw some real ugly challenges your way. I went through some pretty tough times, an ugly, long and drawn-out divorce, the death of a child, to mention the worst. I really lost control of a part of my life, gained a lot of weight and began having a variety of health issues.

In the past, I was a fighter. I didn't give up. If someone told me I couldn't, I'd say "Watch me!" When I did all I could until I couldn't do any more, I'd keep on pushing and do more anyway. That was then, before I lost my way. I didn't fall into feeling sorry for myself or anything like that. I was just knocked down so hard that I couldn't seem to get up again. I lost a part of myself back there somewhere.

I always had a hopeful spirit and I don't think I ever lost that, but somehow I think there was a part of me that was just numb, not able to feel. I have always felt that in whatever happens there is a lesson to be learned, a good to come out of it...even with the bad things...especially with the bad. Well, I still believe that and I can see positive aspects of some of my own sorrows. There were lessons and good did come.

Now, after many years, I'm ready to be whole again. I want to feel strong and whole and healthy again. I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready. So, if anybody tells me that I won't be able to make it, I'll just say "Watch me!"

    Thanks for your words of encouragement on my blog. I, like you, can get a little high strung. Guess it runs in my family and for people pleasing personalitis.
    I heeded your advice and made it through the craziness. Today it's time to rest and regroup.
    When I saw your name...I thought, "oh my gosh...my friend Linda Lee joined SP!" One of my dear friends here in Boerne is named Linda Lee. :) Now I know two Linda Lee's.
    Thanks again!

    hey hun... thanks for popping by my page and sending me a nice note... my Vertigo is still hanging in darn it anyway but it is getting better. I hope your's don't get any worse.
    Well the weather is supposed to get warmer today but the side walks are pools of water from all the snow melting so not good for walking, it was crazy trying yesterday lol.
    I'm leaving for 6 days on the 6th to Ontario to see my parents and siblings.. I'm SO excited... only thing is my Mom smokes (85 yrs old) steady in the house and I have only been a non-smoker since Jan. 15th so I told her I might be going out for alot of walks lol... it's her house and I will deal with it.. I'm just very blessed to still have both my parents, as to why I feel I NEED to get back there now since it's been 4 yrs.
    I hope you have a great day, I've been thinking about you so was happy to see you were of me to.. emoticon

    Hi,

    Thanks for stopping in. I wasn't on SP a whole lot for about a month as I just had too much going on in my life. Hopefully things have calmed down for me and will be able to truly SPARK! Hope you've been able to Spark a lot and that all is going well.
