My “Living Healthier” blog posts are definitely going to continue, but something a little more important interrupted my writing ideas today. This post belongs under the category “Aging Gracefully” since we all face dealing with the passing of those we love, especially as we grow older. Today would have been my mom’s 79th birthday. Birthdays… Read More Chasing rainbows
Here’s the deal–I’ve discovered that I really like writing this blog! When I began back in early 2017, I divided my posts into 3 categories: Aging Gracefully, Living Healthier, & Facing Challenges. I envisioned the categories getting equal play time as I shared my love of essential oils and cooking real food, bungled my way… Read More Time for Some New (Old Favorites)

We all need to remember that we have NO idea what others are going through unless we’ve walked in their shoes, and even then, everyone’s experience is unique. Hope is as necessary as air and water. A… Read More Random Thoughts from My Current Life
Early this morning Max (our 4-year-old border collie/golden retriever rescue baby) and I went on a walk. As is often the case, a simple one hour walk relieved some stress and allowed me to sort out my often jumbled thoughts. As usual, the beauty of our Houston neighborhood soothes me. This may be hard… Read More Thank my lucky stars
Ever since I wrote about the little things and how they can help us feel in control of our lives, I’ve also been considering other ways that we (meaning I) can “deal” better. Another thing that I’ve noticed about myself is that since truly putting into practice the saying “take it one day at… Read More Just For Today
Link to Robin Roberts’ WSJ interview I am a big fan of Robin Roberts. When my husband was diagnosed with MDS, we had to quickly move to Houston to begin treatment. I started reading anything I could get my hands on about this relatively rare form of leukemia. There’s not a whole lot out there… Read More TWO interesting reads….
