Pandemic Pride

Having never been a ‘half-empty’ kind of gal, I always try to look to the stars and find something good in every situation. Granted it sometimes takes extra looking to find it, but I believe it was geometry that taught me everything has an upside to the downside– ( or maybe it wasn’t geometry, it…

Untraveled territory

As many of you know, I was a nursing home administrator for nearly 30 years and I loved it. There were good times and some not so good times, but I had an incredible team and a wonderful owner/boss and they supported me through them all. And 48 years ago I became a nurse and…

Division Three— Spiritual

First let me say loud and clear: I Love God!  I believe firmly in his being real and active in my life!  I have never understood how even those who staunchly declare themselves hard core atheist could hold their own child and not believe in a supreme being.  I know that I have never done…

The next part of my journey I want to share with you is the mental part. Mental health has such a negative connotation in our country, and is often an area that people try to skirt around. According to Mental Health.com , “mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we…
