Life is Good

I am a 66 year old woman who has been married to the same wonderful man for 43 years. I have two intelligent, independent grown children. I left Spark for a while, and gained weight, so I'm back at it.

My kids probably aren't going to want my "treasures" either, so I'm disposing of most of them except the ones I really want to keep for myself. I hope they keep the family heirlooms, but it wouldn't surprise me if they don't.

Love
by Czeslaw Milosz

Love means to look at yourself
The way one looks at distant things
For you are only one thing among many.
And whoever sees that way heals his heart,
Without knowing it, from various ills--
A bird and a tree say to him: Friend.

Then he wants to use himself and things
So that they stand in the glow of ripeness.
It doesn't matter whether he knows what he serves:
Who serves best doesn't always understand.

Happy start to the weekend! I'm going to call you this weekend. Lots of updates. In the meantime, I'm still sparking and losing weight. My back feels better already with the weight down! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for the new purse!! You inspire me too! Just do what you did before - eat healthy, exercise and keep sparking -- those pounds will drop back off! emoticon emoticon emoticon

My kids don't want most of the stuff my husband and I have collected over the past 43 years. They are really minimalists about most things. I hope they will keep the letters my mother sent to my father over 3 years during WW 2, but I'm pretty sure they don't want my 4 sets of dishes!
