On Valentine's Day we think of those Who make our lives worthwhile, Those gracious, friendly people who We think of with a smile. I am fortunate to know you, That's why I want to say, To a rare and special person: Happy Valentine's Day!
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. --Melody Beattie
I wish my entire fellow Sparkers a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for each and every one of you. I am thankful to have you as part of my extended family as we say on our team. You have helped make me the person I am today. I am getting healthier and stronger everyday with your constant support and motivation.
My advice for the Holiday, choose your battles carefully. Tread carefully here my friends. The consequence of your choices will all be on you. You have worked too hard and you look too good to blow it now. You joined SparkPeople to overcome these urges or learn how to plan for them so you can indulge in a comfort food here or there. Don’t forget all of the hard work you have put in and all you have learned. You have come so far! Learn how to celebrate the day without the emphasis on food. If you should indulge in that dessert please make sure that you and your family, we want them healthy too, take a long walk after dinner to digest and burn off some of the calories from dinner. Hitting the couch after a big Thanksgiving meal is now a thing of the past. Yup, no more.
Happy Thanksgiving! If you are driving, travel safely!
