Spark has found me with many ups and downs, both with my weight and my personal life.
Most of the time, I would rebound nicely. My positive, see the good in everything, self, was always there, to adjust.
In May 2014, my oldest son, Kenny, passed away and the me I was, would never return. The death of a child changes things in ways that no one can put into words.
So after months of just existing, moving in slow motion through what was left, I find myself at a point where my faith has grown, leaps and bounds and filled me with renewed hope. Death is nothing to be feared, for we shall all be together, again. Our goodness goes on forever. In the meantime, Kenny is closer than I think. He would not want his death to steal all of my childlike joy, that I always found in the smallest of things.
He would not want my health to decline. Always helping me while he was alive, he now is helping me, still.
The new me, is about to be born. I have much to learn, but I already know that along with my Faith, health is also a top priority.
Thank you, spark friends for supporting me through the most difficult thing that I have ever experienced.
Now on to a healthier me, physically, mentally and spiritually.
Kenny will be smiling down.

    The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.

    — Alfred Austin

    Earth laughs in flowers. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Gardening requires lots of water, most of it in the form of perspiration. -Lou Erickson

    I like gardening — it's a place where I find myself when I need to lose myself.

    "And out you stepped onto new ground,
    Your eyes young again with energy and dream, ....".

    John O'Donohue is both validating and encouraging at the same time. He was only in his 50's when he died suddenly of a heart attack a few years ago. I keep thinking of all the beautiful thoughts he shared while alive and those that are still floating about the universe as some form of positive energy for us.

    Thanks for reading my blog. And......tomorrow begins a new week for us. Let us make it one that will be successful.for us.
