I have decided my attitude is my own worst enemy. So I have been reading positive
articles by other Sparkers, comments by those whom I am in contact with, like PAM
and MICHELLE and CINDY and many others...also CAZ sent me a great blog yesterday
that sent me off on this thinking expedition. I shared it with others because it was so
Why we allow ourselves to talk to us as we do, so often, when we would not allow someone
else to berate us, or put us down, but we are actually MEAN to our own self, is beyond me.
David said yesterday that I am harsher on myself, than I would ever let anyone. For some
reason, I expect more out of me than me can perform, to be honest.
I have no idea why I am so hard on me and expect perfection, and no deviation is allowed
from the narrow line I am balancing on???
Therefore, I sat me down and had a talk with me. Me, myself and I have decided to be
positive and find a positive point in everything that happens. I have decided to approach
my goals from a positive side and instead of being upset with me for slipping, to be nice
to me and sell myself a few extra minutes on the bicycle and move on along with a compliment to myself for never giving up.
I can feel for others, share with them, because I have been there, and I always want to
lift others up, help them lift themselves up, and be positive and joyful...it makes me feel
better, maybe whomever reads this will agree.............
Let's give ourselves a break, make a list of what needs to be accomplished, then go after
completing that list in a REASONABLE length of time....
Love n hugs,

I have had Junior since he was a young kitty, he passed away in my arms this
morning at 18 + years of age.
He had surgery 2 weeks ago today, for a large tumor under his tongue, which
left his tongue very sore and tender, so we had been feeding 4-5 times a day with
a syringe to help him out with the food....he was a huge cat, normally, and he
never fought us or protested, just took the food and his meds and purred his way
Last night about midnight, he called me and I went to see what he wanted...which
was for me to pick him up, he was shivering in spite of having a heated bed, so I
wrapped him in his blankie and sat here at the computer with my feet propped up
on the paper shredder, held him and talked with him for over 2 hours, and finally he
went to sleep. I believe his "c" had spread faster than we knew it could.
He always got up with David and carried on a conversation and while David was having
prayer time and coffee....this morning I went to get him to feed him, and he had blood
on his nose, so I wrapped him up and called the Vet.....we loved on him, told him to
cross the Rainbow Bridge and wait for us.....and he was gone....
I believe, because the Bible says there are animals in Heaven, and because of a dream
I and my daughter had when Blaze, our Arab, passed away, that our beloved pets/furry
family members, just cross over and wait....in the meantime, they are whole and healthy.
I wanted you all to know, if I am not my usual self, this is why. I had Junior and little
Sammie and they were my company and best friends before I had met David, so to say
I am broken-hearted is phrasing it gently.

I got a call from my former daughterinlaw yesterday.......
The dr. did a check on her nodes, not the technical name for it, but
anyway, She had her double mastectomy the last week in June.
The verdict is:
Michelle is cancer FREE................
Thank you to each of you who have prayed for her, both from me and her and
all those who love her.
Blessings for each of you,
