KANSAS CITY CHIEFS your LIV Superbowl Champions!!!
GO CHIEFS!!!!!! AFC CHAMPIONS 2019!

Hello. My name is Brenda. I'm from Missouri.

I hate winter! I miss my flowers.

My boys are grown and won't be long until the youngest is gone.
It's time for me to take care of me.
I'm driven to make this weight loss thing happen this time.

I work as an Operations Manager for a local WISP.
I work on Saturdays, pt, for a local veterinarian. I really don't consider it work, it's more like volunteering. I love working with the animals and praying over them. Sometimes I get it in my head I can lay my hands on them and God will heal them. It hasn't happened yet and I don't know why I have that feeling, but I know I comfort them. The girls at the clinic tease me. They say, "It ain't Saturday if Brenda's not crying." When I have to hold someone's baby for blood draw or anything I view as scary or painful, I hum to them or sing and crocodile tears run down my face. It's like I feel their energy. I really think those other girls think I'm crazy. But I know I would like to think someone would treat my baby that way.

I had a 13 y.o. white pekingese, Li'l Bit, recently passed. 1/20/20
A 10 y.o. deerhead chihuahua, Rascal.
And a 2 y.o. terrier mix, Mama Dog.
My youngest son, has a 6 y.o. english bulldog that lives with him in my basement. Her name is Lola.

I love gardening. I have grown vegetables for many years. And got into flower gardening in the last 6 years or so. I had my own business for a time gardening with elderly ladies who couldn't do everything for themselves any more. I loved it.

Photography is another passion of mine. I also have worked as a professional portrait photographer, doing senior portraits, family portraits, maternity portraits, pet portraits and wedding photography.

Grew up on a farm. Been around farming pretty much all my life. Bought a house 2 1/2 years ago in my hometown. It's weird living in town and having neighbors so close. I live in one of the oldest neighborhoods in town. It's a great neighborhood. I have 5 lots. I love watching my son and his friends play football in the yard or the neighbor kids fly their drones over here.

I started a private team here for Missourians. If you are reading this and interested in checking out the team, private message me and I will send you an invite.

Spark On!

There was a time when I walked 4 miles every morning before work. I would like to get back to a walking regimen. I enjoyed it so much and I know what benefits await.

RULES FOR A "SPARK"LING LIFE! (adapted from RULES FOR A "SPARK"LING WEEK!!!)

1. Wake Up !! Make the choice to have a good day and live a healthier lifestyle!

3 . Learn!! Read as much as you can and gain knowledge about living a healthier lifestyle!

4. Stand Up!!..... For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything.

5. Look Up !!.. to your next goal and reward. What do you need to do in order to meet or exceed that goal?

6. Reach Out !!... by encouraging others and being supportive in their times of need.

7. Lift Up !!.. Your spirit....as this journey is not only about your body and weight loss but the changes with your mind and soul too!

8, Get moving !! ... Find ways to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Sneak in as much exercise as possible!

    When I was a little girl, the Crayola color "yellow orange" was my absolute favorite...and still would be, had they not replaced it with a new shade of blue a few years ago, lol.

    Keep on shining! emoticon

    good morning .. thank you for the morning hello ..
    My weekend was great .. had my son and his two daughters here for supper Saturday .. had a great catch up .. yes the girls played hide and seek .. first time in this house .. I love it when there are giggles and squeals in the air .. so does this amazing home .. it increases the love vibe .. after our meal we played cards .. more laughs ..
    Sunday was a Meagan and grandma day .. we yapped and looked up recipes ... she loves to cook at 27 she is 5 feet tall 110 pounds of dynamite .. ha ha .. small but mighty .. (even her 9 year old cousin is taller already .. )
    we looked at family photo albums and I made a list of the items she wants from her GG's house .. my momma ..
    all in all it was a great day ..
    she did leave earlier than I would have liked on holiday Monday because of the weather .. but I totally understand .. she's not a bad driver but she does lack experience .. ( lets just say when we so somewhere ... grandma prefers to be behind the wheel .. ) ha ha .. easier on my old nerves ..

    you want to hear about my sunflower seed butter .. well it comes from North Dakota .. so very fresh and local .. I like to put it on rice cakes with banana, raspberry or blueberries .. I use it to make a rich protein sauce for my rice or stir fry .. and by George just like any over grown kid I sneak a spoonful and enjoy it just as I do my crunchy peanut butter ..

    time to hit the tread climber .. then tzone ... followed by a nice hot/cold shower .. have to wake up the zip in my get along ..

    I gave my office gal the day off .. her kids are home from school this week so the family is going to go ice fishing for the day .. ( I bet I get a fresh fish in return .. yummy .. yummy )

    Have a blessed and glorious day ..
    stay present .. in the now .. not backwards or ahead ... present and alive .. loving every second ..
    huge hugs
