With the health issue My DH is facing, taking care of me so that I can be there for him is vital, not selfish. That said, May's journey will be to focus on that which helps me be the best person I can be.

Able in April ~ 4/1/16
And WILLING, of course.

My april healthy lifestyle focus is to keep hands (and feet) busy through the day. If we are willing, we will be ABLE IN APRIL. I am WILLING! Let's do this!

Moving Forward in March ~ 3/1/16

My first post for this year, made in February, revealed the pit I was in. Today I am in the flow of renewed desire to press forward. One area I will work on through March is that of cleaning up my diet (see blog entry for 2-29-16). Using Paleo as a pattern for eating clean before Christmas, I could tell the difference in the 2 weeks I was on it. This morning I arise with renewed desire to get back into that way of eating. I will also continue to work to increase my steps. Taking things slow and easy as I get back into the flow of Spark life, I find myself rejuvenated and looking forward to a great March.

Tired, But Hanging On ~ February 4, 2016

I am very tired. It is tempting to just sink into the background and slink away. But I know better than to quit, so I am still here.

Right now I don’t know what my goal is other than to hold the line. Being here helps me to at least maintain what I have while waiting for strength and resource to press on.

For now, this is my goal. I begin with a searching heart. Seeking my Father, I reach for His hand and watch for His Shepherding Staff of guidance. It is the very best I can do.

Personal Information:
Hi, I am Darlene, a 61 year old home maker, married to my best friend, and I struggle to take care of myself properly, like many I know. We have 3 children and their mates, 12 grandchildren, 2 great grands, and 2 dogs who think they are our children. I love the study of God's word, writing, reading, and crochet.

Other Information:
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow may never be
Now is all the time
God has gifted me
Will I use it well
Or waste it on the way
Time will surely tell
The choice I make today

    Good to hear your DH is hanging in there and the rest of the week will be less hours. My thoughts and prayers are with your both.
    My DD is an english professor at the university of Groningen (The Netherlands) and she is knee-deep in teaching, reading and marking essays. The summer semester is short and then she gets 5 weeks vacation (gotta love Europe!) We going over to see her in 8 weeks! I can't wait, it's been 2-1/2 years since we've seen her. We'll also visit my mom, we last saw her 4 years ago. So excited!!
    My DH is doing well, keeping busy with work and charities and of course pickleball - we love it.
    Mexico is home now, the ranch in Colorado is sold (sort of, we carry the note) and the lake cottage will go eventually.
    Thanks for asking after my family..

    Hi, got back from Disney World last night. Had an overnight stay in the hospital due to very low electrolytes. We had a great time and my dear daughter took great care of me. She rented me a scooter which is what the doctor suggested as it was in the 90's all week. Had a wonderful and fun time! Please know that I will continue to keep you and your hubby in my prayers. Enjoy your week-end! emoticon emoticon June
