Prayer needed immediately for our son Daniel and his team, they were
ambushed while on patrol. All we know is 1 killed and some wounded.
David called Daniel's CO at Ft. Bragg. They were in an ambush while on patrol, wounds
were minor and Daniel is safe....the fatality was a special forces member from another
Please hold him and his family in prayer.
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for everyone who dropped what they were doing
and prayed...and please pray daily for the brave men and women who are standing between
us and those who would do us harm............

Laughing here, yes I am home and thank you to each of you who took the time
to read my blog and say a prayer....I did very well if you discount the swollen
lip that I evidently bit, and the sore throat from the intubation....seems to me
that causes more trouble than not....lol
Anyway, I staggered in and got on my scale this morning, and alas/alack, I did
not lose 5 lbs....after yesterday, I would have thought that would have been the
case....all the hurling and no eating.....my BP did spike on me last night and I
had to take a 1/2 tablet to bring it down....David must have checked it 5 times
while I was trying to get to sleep....when it started going down, he relaxed....
At any rate, I am home and seem to be fine except for a wee bit of soreness.
Talk to ya'll soon, blessings on each of you my friends,

Just wanted to let you know I will be AWOL for a few days on Spark, likely 2-3 days.
Depends on how well I recoup after surgery tomorrow.
The dr. ran 3 different tests and says my Gallbladder is only functioning at 6%, and
if it goes completely down, and stuff starts accumulating, there is a chance of getting
pancreatitis(which is usually fatal in any adult and most children) by my own research..
and the experience of a friend whose husband had it, and passed.
Just wanted to let you know where I am, and ask for any prayers you care to send up.
I do not do well with being anesthesized, so this may take all day......which is why I
avoid surgery like the plague.
Blessings and thanks in advance,
PS: Am downloading some pictures if I can get the fool thing to load out of the zipper

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,
