Thanks so much to everyone who wished me well yesterday after our St. Louis, Mo. hail storm!!! I felt your love and support!
My husband and I raked, swept and bagged yard debris most of the day...I only put in 3 hours on the Tracker though! I'll admit there were breaks when neighbors would walk by and we'd get to talking about our "storm stories". It's amazing how I'll see neighbors who are never outside except to scurry to and from their cars when something bad happens, like a power outage or a bad storm! We managed to get most of the junk up, probably a good 15 large trash cans worth...and our yard isn't very big, just tons of trees in my yard and surrounding my house...which I love...but boy, can they generate some leaves!!!
We only have one leak so far...and the adjuster is supposed to be getting with me today, and we have a roofer who did some temporary tarping etc in the meantime.
So, other than a slightly sore body, and a really sore elbow, my body is holding strong. I've walked the dog, and I plan to do some DVD's with strength training today, and some gentle yoga to work out some of the soreness.
You know, I think the thing I love the most about SP, and my fellow Sparkers is the positive attitudes, maybe that's why we are successful? Anyway, I was just relflecting on what a big a difference a positive person can make in their world, and that I'm glad SP is a positive force in mine.
Let's make a difference today!!! Spark on!
