The Train This was in an e mail It's beautiful

This is a very beautiful analogy of life. I am honored to share it.

When we boarded the train and met our parents,we believe they would always travel by our side.
However,at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant,i.e, our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life.
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats.
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.
Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best to ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down.
So we must live in the best way,love, forgive, and offer to do this because when our time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love.
More importantly, thank God for the journey.

Lastly, I THANK YOU for being one of the passengers on my train.

Stormy weather

Monday, July 28, 2014

We were driving home last night from our friend's 75th birthday (which is about 75 miles away) and hit some bad storms.
The lightning was flashing across the sky and my husband remarked that he had never seen it go across the sky like that.
I couldn't wait to get home because I was worried about our dog who doesn't like like noises.
Needless to say she was fine and we woke her up when we got home.
I hope everyone has a great week.

Did some exercising

Monday, June 23, 2014

I did the Jillian Michaels dvd Body revolution work out #2 for 30 minutes and I did the bonus cardio for 20 minutes.
The sad part is I don't know how to post these and I tried one at a time and said "the heck with it".
I know I worked hard and had a good sweat so It counts for me!!

    If you want to track your fitness go to the start button, at the left top-then go into #1 track fitness, or go to your spark points page, and it's a couple down where it says track fitness. I think it tracks minutes. eva

    Like EmmaCory said, click on My Trackers, click on My Fitness, then you can do a search to see if someone else has already made an entry for what you want to enter... or you can create your own entry...

I tend to just use what looks the closest to what I think I am doing and use that entry. My goal is to track my minutes... I am not as concerned about guessing how many calories I burn doing my exercises. I figure at best those numbers are a guess on the best of days... and I should not take calorie burned numbers to heart.

Although, I do like to give myself credit for the time I put in !!!

Hope this helps.

Happy Sunday

Sunday, June 22, 2014

Just a short blog because I haven't wrote one since June 1st.
I did a Jullian Michaels video for 30 minutes early this morning and took the dog out for a walk/jog (a short one) and did a few 20 step hops on a fallen tree.
It felt good to something good for myself.
I went into my spark friend pages and removed a few that just left us hanging for a long time with no goodbye, see ya or nothing to indicate what happened. It makes you sad when that happens.
I miss a lot of them that are "just gone" and I don't know why.
I am going to visit more often on the pages of the Spark Friends that are there all the time and hope that they stay around and don't make their pages off limits to everyone.
In case you are out there (maybe under a new name) I just want to wish you all a Sunny and Happy Sunday and let you know that you are missed.

    Shame about the friend situation - and frankly, I can't see why someone would deliberately keep their pages "off limits" - just defeats the purpose of having a page at all.......

Of course, it goes without saying that "life happens" and that may be a reason why friends fall away........

    I have kept some of my MIA's (missing in action) SP friends, just in hopes they will return. The exception is when their sparkPage has been terminated because they closed their account.

    I check my Spark friends occasionally. I know that one of them died a couple of years ago and she is still receiving comments on her Spark page. I leave many inactive friends on my page in hope that they will return. I wish I could delete the names that are completely "greyed out" though.

    I'm sorry to lose my Spark Friends but I do take them off if I've written about their not being active and don't hear anything back from them. I try to write to each of my "friends" during the month. Now - I really like the picture on your blog. During this time with so many people losing jobs and money being scarce, I hope we all donate what we can when we can. emoticon

GINA180847 6/22/2014 11:31AM

    I guess that I am not that good a friend because the ones that are gone are not really worth my time to go and remove them. Besides there is always the hope that they come back and say Yoohoo one day. The ones that are around all the time are active and that is all I care about. Kanoe is one of those, her smiling face shows up a lot. Same with Tweety.

    That is why I review my friends at least twice a month. Yes it is sad. We need to lead by example. Great job today!

Hello June>>>>>

Sunday, June 01, 2014

I am very happy it is June 1st.
A Good month to start anew or continue to keep going forward to our goals.
As for me it is the renew part since I have been active but not exercising like I should.
School is out this Friday and I couldn't be happier since driving in the morning and then in the afternoon sometimes makes it hard to get things done as I get lazy.
I am happy to start JUNE as the month to turn myself around.
I have noticed a loss of muscle tone and even strength. (I carry buckets of water to my horses and I feel the loss of strength I had before)
SO once again... FOCUS on moving forward and Onward and Upward and don't look back!!!
Good health to us all.

    Yay for June., I have two more weeks of school. I can also tell the difference is weight lifting when I do not do it as often. That is good advice. MOve forward and keep going. You can do it.

    It looks like, on your weight ticker from your page, that you've kept your weight down and that is a struggle for most here. Hopefully you've been eating healthy, drinking your water and getting sleep.

You'll regain your muscle back in no time. Muscles never lose their ability to get better, even while we age.

Great blog!
