Happy Friday! Control is a tough issue for a lot of us. We can control some of what we do, but we can’t control everything! Keep pushing towards your goals. Even if you do not reach all of them, don’t give up! You can alter your goals or make new ones! Do your best to keep a positive and/or realistic attitude. You are AMAZING and WONDERFUL!

“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” – Brian Tracy

Wow, reading your blog, I can tell you are very much doing what you should be, and look at what you've done, or are doing...there are many people who wouldn't come close to that.

You are a true inspiration to others; just as an example, look at what you've accomplished!

I am at 55 steps in a day not all at one time but through out the day.
-I can now stand for 30-60 seconds before pain ends it
-I can now sit for 10-15 seconds before pain ends it.

Think of where you were at when you started, this is fantastic. Don't lose faith in yourself or God, you will defeat this, don't let anything defeat you! And remember, if you want to talk, just message me, I'm here.

Have a beautiful day, just like the lady I wished it to! emoticon (gently, of course)

So glad you got caught up on the Spark mail. Sometimes things just happen it takes awhile. My granddaughter comes over so much she thinks she belongs to us and she looks at the spark pages with me sometimes.
