What if we didn't have Spark People for guidance? We would be able to figure it all out eventually but it's such an easier process with the help and support of this wonderful site.
What if we didn't have libraries? I have gotten back into reading and really appreciate the library option. It's become a great sleeping pill for me. I don't know the last time I bought a book. We are reading Becoming Michelle Obama for our next book club book. I'm now 899 of 171 on the library list. I may have to purchase this one.
What if we didn't have our health? We take so much for granted and should stop and realize how lucky we are to have our health. I'm not the best at exercising and healthy eating but it's time I become more consistent. I hate to make that as a New Years Resolution but it definitely should be a top priority.
What if we didn't have music? It has always been a day brightener and can turn a day around easily. It can often bring back a memory of another time hopefully a good reminder but sometimes can be a sad moment. It can be a huge help with exercising and make me wanting to add that to my day. It can be a good journal topic and make one reflect on many parts of one's life.
What if we didn't have family? They can be a pain in the butt at times but I am very grateful for those who do want to be a part of my life. I would do anything for a family member and know I could count on any of them if needed.
What if we didn't have holidays? My favorites are Halloween and Christmas and not necessarily in that order. I enjoy doing a Fall event for great niece/nephews. I have done Wizard of Oz, Ghostbusters, a Carnival and will continue planning them as long as they are willing to participate. I love preparing for the trick and treaters and decorating the outside. 2018 Halloween I was able to sit outside as a Fortune Teller and really be in the mix of the 76 kids that came to our doorstep. Christmas can be stressful but oh what fun to prepare for it all. The decorating, meal planning and all else that goes with it. We played the Price is Right on Christmas Eve with 12 people. My 90 year old Father In Law said what a great party and had a smile on his face most of the evening. That in itself was worth it all.
What if there wasn't an end to a blog? Thank goodness, right?
