Nothing Like A Little Pampering To Make You Feel GREAT!

Thursday, April 15, 2010      3 comments

Sometimes Just Being Quiet Helps Me Absorb the Peace

Friday, April 09, 2010      4 comments

Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of every day life we feel the need to just stop. Stop and absorb some quiet and the peace that quiet brings. I'm looking forward to visiting Bok Towers in the next few weeks for that reason. One of the membe... Read more

It Must Be Working!

Monday, March 29, 2010      7 comments

This morning it was raining when I got up. My husband was up and down all night so my sleep was disturbed. My mood was definitely blah for the first few hours. Not being a person who feels down very often, I detested the way I felt. I had to... Read more

I'm Glad I Rested Yesterday
