One of my friends is shaving her head for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.  I am so proud of her and wanted to share this story.  We often get so caught up in our own lives that we forget about others in need.  Others like children battling cancer and their families.  Precious lives.  So read on and […]

I admit it.  I go, go, go.  I have lots of energy, and it is hard for me to relax.  To sit and do nothing is near impossible.  Yet, I know that I should be relaxing more.  Doing nothing.  Nothing?  Well, not nothing  but maybe meditating. Studies and people who practice meditation will tell you […]
