just sayin’ … I’m back and Sparks is ???
Thursday, June 10, 2021
Well, dang I come back from Texas … and y’all have messed up Sparks.
I spent tons of time hugging on our DS1 after not seeing him for almost 2 years. I gave him his quilt I made for his birthday a year and a half ago. He goes to the doc the end of July to see if the powerful meds he is taking are changing the pituitary brain tumor. He suffers a daily migraine … so hopefully that means the tumor is shrinking.
I spent 5 days “tidying up” BFF’s house. I got to say good-bye in my own way. Her son gave me permission to bring home the “gifts” she promised me. I also brought home 8 quilts to finish for her and 2 quilts for her g-kids to basically start and finish by Christmas. BFF no longer hand quilted like I do … so machine quilting will finish them up in the fall.
Since November I feel like I have been struggling with losses … the loss of my close relationship with our DD, the loss of Hubby during his manic / psychotic episode, the loss of my BFF of 35 years and now … the loss of the Spark Community.
I’m sure Chris Downie has good reasons to change the SparkPeople format … I mean he started Sparks to bring together folks who were focusing on becoming healthy. Along the way Sparkers have achieved their goals … I lost weight and gained it back … and we’ve made “real” friends.
I came back from Texas re-dedicated to purge my body, soul and home of everything that doesn’t work for me.
How am I gonna do that with out the support from BFF and alllllllll y’all???
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
