An momentary sigh of gratitude for my Sparkin' friends! :^)

I've never made a fortune,
and it's probably too late now.
But I don't worry about that much,
I'm happy anyhow.

And as I go along life's way,
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven't got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going's tough.
But I've got loving ones around me,
and that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'cause my cup has overflowed.

O, Remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows that I've hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
"Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I'll not ask for other blessings,
I'm already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer,
"Cause my cup has overflowed.

God Bless

    We are all pulling for you, and many of us, including me, are praying for you. Keep up the determination. Don't let anything or anyone stop or sabotage you. Follow your eating plan, and remember, every so often, you have to redesign it (I'm sure you know this, but as you lose weight, you have to adjust your calories down to keep losing. That's why, in my opinion, nice and slow is best because then those adjustments aren't so huge). I can't wait to see new pictures you'll be posting of yourself as you lose weight. You're going to be a huge Spark success story, I'm sure of it.

    God bless you.
