Leave A Legacy--Share Your Stories

As my children get older, I find the years ticking away faster than the previous ones. It’s especially fast once October hits, then November speeds through. December is peeking through the frosty window, ready to enter, while 2011 waits in the deepest cold ready to jump out and yell SURPRISE!

It’s during these times we reflect on the past, remember those we love, those we loved and lost,…

And like that, poof we're down to 7 days.

Admittedly, I suck at blogging. Not the writing part, but rather the remembering to write part.

I'm almost done with my little experiment. There's only one week left of dieting, and personal training before I shed my comfy loose clothes, and do a little boudoir photoshootin' with Teresa Lee Photography. I actually didn't think I'd be able to see results after three weeks. When I went running to the Defense Institute I thought I might be able to tone up a little bit. My personal… Continue

Kettleman Confessions: Day 4

The way the Salvation Army manages kettle workers is to have us call in each work day for our assignment. On a day-by-day basis we have no idea where we will work, or even if we will work at all. Today I called the “Kettle Hotline” only to hear a message that nobody would be ringing and we needed to attend a mandatory meeting later that afternoon. Bummer, I really needed to work!

So later, I drove down to the Yuma Street Chapel to find out what all the fuss was. Here’s what I learned. Some… Continue

Holidays Pose Challenge

During the holidays, I see more stress and low spirits in my massage therapy clients. It’s no wonder. The short days sap our energy. Family gatherings can create more stress than pleasure. Then there’s the shopping and all that festive food! Are we doomed to just suffer through it, or can we do something about it? First, we can recognize that we are more susceptible to stress and fatigue this time of year. Then we can be proactive. Here are a few ideas.

Boost your immune system by… Continue
