Well... here it is.. the Day after Thanksgiving...
I woke feeling SO thankful!!! Thankful.... for waking up... being able to thank GOD for all He has given me throughout my life... Wonderful, God Loving Parents.... A Husband that is faithful, hard working and God Loving... A Kindhearted, God Loving Mother In Law.... So many Caring, Supportive Spark TRUE Friends that have seen me throughout this 'journey'... stumble, fall, and yet are here to pick me up and give me the support and love to TRY AGAIN...Just SO many blessings He has given me... A roof over our heads... a Church that truly loves the Lord and does so much for the less fortunate...His Light shines so much with our church family.
Yes i am BLESSED! emoticon
Today... as I prayed... God spoke to me...( for some of you reading this.. this may sound quite 'odd' but for those of you who truly 'know me'... You know that I have an ability that God shows me things... like when my dear Daddy passed... and I walked up to him laying in the hospital bed.. and saw Two of the most beautiful Angels surrounding my Daddy with their wings.. Hugging him... thru a LIGHT which was so beautiful.. it took me to my knees.. :) )
well this morning.. God told me ... AMY! Now is the TIME! YOU MUST pick yourself up and get your Spark Back!!! Live life and treasure it while you are here on this earth... LIVE!!!!
WOW!!! I feel like such a heavy burden has been lifted my (((Friends)))
I WANT MY SPARK BACK!!! And I intend to get it!!!
I know that this time of year.. its going to be tough .. tough to NOT have 2nd helpings... tough to NOT pile my plate FULL of all those yummy foods... BUT I am determined to enjoy my MomasThanksgiving Dinner (we will have this Saturday for dinner) BUT use PORTION control!! and take small bites.... chew my food for all its worth... and NOT STUFF myself to the point where I am FULL and miserable...
Ok... so .. I am so thankful for this blog space so I can write (if only to myself) that starting TODAY... I am dusting off my Spark Book and read, read and read!
I am on fire for ME!! I ask that ANYONE that reads this will please become my buddy...I need to be talk with someone while I am on my journey and I will promise i will support you all the way! .... I am starting with baby steps... but yet portion control I find is my hardest challenge right now... SO PLEASE keep me in your prayers that God will guide me and my TRUE Spark friends will shine thru for me once again and help me. ANY suggestions will be greatly appreciated... I am VERY SLOW for exercise but know I need to do something.....
THANKS for reading this blog of mine and for your continued emoticonand support! emoticon
Hope to hear from my Buddies SOON~
God bless~
A Renewed Sparker~~~

    thanks my ((((Friends)))) for your support and friendship. emoticon I will admit that 2 Thanksgiving dinners in the past 4 days have not been the 'best' for my food choices.. BUT I did NOT have 2nd helpings and tried to control my portions that I put on my plate. Today has been alittle better regarding the food.. and I have drank ALOT of water which as yall know is one of my 'not so easy' things to do...
    I hope each of you had a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving. Ours went well and we got to enjoy being with 'family'...
    God bless and thank you again for ALL the support~

    We are all truly blessed! I'm glad that God spoke to you and that you have made this decision. I will help you in any way I can. Portion control will help a lot. That is what I have been using the last couple of days. I was able to enjoy some of everything. I also made more healthy foods.
    Stay in touch and let me know how I can help. I will keep you in my prayers!

    I don't have to tell you, I'm always here for you Amy. My heart was lifted when I read your blog. I have been praying for you and your health. I am so pleased that your are getting your SPARK back. emoticon I know that when you lose some weight, you will feel so much better. Not just about your weight, but about your state of mind. Your heart will begin to mend. God will give you strength to take baby steps, "Take it One Day at a Time". I know God had a hand in us becoming friends. My one suggestion is find yourself a smaller plate, one just for you, one you like the color and shape of. Use it every time you eat. Think of your health and my love for you every time you eat. Strive to eat one APPLE every day. Drink, Drink, Drink water. emoticon emoticon emoticon
