>>> I have been diagnosed with breast cancer, caught very early during a routine mammmogram, PLEASE go annually as I had missed 3 years and had I missed one more year the outcome would be a lot different. Do not take a chance on missing something in its early stages. As of this date I am 2 years cancer free. My article Life/Death part 2 talks about the reality of breast cancer and what happens if it occurs plz read! For more information regarding Breast Cancer please follow this link to the American Breast Cancer Foundation. http://abcf.org/
>>>>If you have a family member or spouse who is chemically dependent(whether or not they are sober) please join Alanon and learn how to regain some of your own balance, your own contentment,. DO not let drugs or alcohol call the shots for your life and happiness. Just remember the dependent person listens to the call of a substance instead of you or life, that need not be what calls to you.
*** Just a passing thought, I am currently reading everything by the writer, poet, artist, Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing down the bones. I cannot help but admire this icon of writing success. If I were to have a writing heroine she would be at the top of my list.
>>>>Summer has fled running away from the cold breezes and icy snow drifts. Now the world becomes noisy with holiday lights, gifts, family and the promise of peace on earth to men of good will. It is all bustle and hustle for a time, then grows quieter awaiting the pale green that is the harbinger of spring.
each day is but a flash of time
each moment but a sliver of life
passing time is the test of reality
and passed time judges our accomplishments

Accomplishments: I am a Nurse by profession and by my love of helping my fellow man. My prayers for all those who are feeling the pinch as this time is difficult financially, and emotionally. May each of you know many of us are keeping you in our prayers!
I am a nurse working with psychiatric patients and those who have become chemically dependent. I have a Masters in Nursing Education and I wish to educate the future nurses, who must care for those who need them so much. God give me the strength to be an inspiration to those that I may help become the caregivers of the future!
I recently got my Masters in Nursing Education proving you can teach an old dog new tricks!
