I hate change-

Tess, the German SPup in the snow--5 mos
There is soft snow falling this morning. It is beautiful--to look at---
The drive to town might be a different story.
Hopefully this snow will stop falling soon--

Yesterday I was in shock---- I put a comment on Kaseycoff's Spark page, that I hadn't read her ""daily blog"" for a few days-----I wrote a little note to ask how things were and how much I depend on her news from ""across the pond""---
She sent a lovely message back, telling me she hasn't done her daily blog, for various reasons--and might not continue them.
For years, (it seems)--I've held her in such high esteem--- She is at her goal weight--Her diabetes is under control-I think she is off her meds for high blood pressure--Spark has done all this for her--Well-her hard work on Spark-

How many times do we just think things will always be , the way they were?
Kaseycoff is such a thought provoking writer------has been so successful in Spark--
I told her all this---I told her that "'I"" need her---- "I" need to see that a perfectly ordinary person can do so well---and --that---If she can--maybe I can--

But----Spark teaches us--""If it's going to be--It's up to me""----
I don't like change---I like to read about success---
Maybe now I have to stand on my own 2 feet---- sobbing here--
Lordy Be!!!---Lord Love a Duck!---Now we all better be as successful as this person---
You think we can be?--
So--off I go here to face the world ----
""If it's going to be--It's up to me""-----

    So many of us have benefited from Kasey's wisdom, and continue to be inspired by her journey. We all learn so much from each other. And you're right, the phrase says it all...it's ultimately up to us to make it happen. Although having the support and friendship of our SP helps to keep us going.

    Love the photo of your pup...gotta love puppies playing in the snow! emoticon

    I think we read other people's blobs to live vicariously through them...that if they are successful and have hit their goals, then we'll be successful too! I love reading about others struggles and how they got through them because it helps me figure out why I haven't been...or as successful that I want to be. This takes work and more work and can't be handed to us on a silver platter. You are absolutely right that "if it's going to be--it's up to me!" I love that! emoticon

    Tess is beautiful!!!
