I need to get moving and eating a balanced diet. With the help of the Spark community I will succeed!!.

"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us." - Albert Schweitzer

I am part of the POSSE from the DWD group. I am hopping to the rescue with HARVEY (He's a pooka and pretty tricky...he's the invisible white rabbit that was in an old Jimmy Stewart movie of the same name.)

I started a tiny group called Walking, Walking, Walking so I could chart my walking AND my blood sugar. I made it for Diabetic Walkers.

My new goal is to organize my time so I can Spark AND sing AND work. I am running out of hours and minutes..time challenged.

The following is an excerpt from the lyrics to the song at the end of "The Polar Express" (semi-animated movie with Tom Hanks). Although this song is about believing in the magic of Christmas, it also spoke to me of the need to believe in ourselves ....

Believe in what your heart is saying, hear the melody that's playing,
There's no time to waste; there so much to celebrate.
Believe in what you feel inside; give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need, if you just believe.

If you just believe.
If you just believe.
If you just believe...
Just believe...
Just believe!

    I just wanted to tell you that I have used your tuna casserole recipe for years and have LOVED it...I don't know why I never told you before now. In fact, for me its so decadent that feel I have to avoid it sometimes or I'll eat the whole thing at once!!!! lol

    Wow your post to our team made me check my date and I joined on the same day you did 6 yrs ago!!!! I checked your comment last night at 1130pm so I was able to enjoy the last 30mins of the day recapping those years and being reminded of the commitment I made on that day. I have been off and on over the years but this is like opening my eyes to a new fresh start. This is actually the start of our new year!!!
