Thank you so much for the kind words you wrote me. I am truly honored to have gained so many friends such as yourself!

I have recently changed my whole outlook of what spark is all about for me. And it's people like you and several others here that changed it! God bless you richly! emoticon

Thanks for the comments on my failure blog. Yes, I finished and was happy to do so. Since then, I've done a triathlon that went extremely well. Hence, my blog today about failure not holding me back.

Thank you for the comment on my blog! That's exactly what I meant about my view of the scale, although I couldn't figure out how to say it as succinctly as you did. (Too few words is rarely a problem with me!)
