Another year has slipped away and we take stock of what we have accomplished. There are always things we wish we had done during the year. But in looking back, I see two things I did this 2013 that make me most proud. Now I can say, “Wow! You really did get that done”!

Here are summaries from three of my posts that received the most notice this past year:
Use Mindful Eating vs. Mindless Eating
Is this one of those days when you have so much to do you eat whatever is available? Without thinking and not even knowing what you are eating? Is it just “time to eat” and you sit down, grab your food, a book or the paper, watch TV or check your messages, and go through the motions?
It takes effort to be fully present to plan and choose healthy food. One needs to pause and take a few deep breaths to connect body and mind and become more aware of what is going on.

The book, The Littlest Christmas Kitten, a story about the birth of Christ and the cat family, can be ordered from Amazon for $13.41, a $2.59 savings. Find out the unique relationship between the Holy Night and the cat family. Children 2 to 12 welcome this story (actually, I’ve heard that a 20 year old always brings out this book at Christmas-time, too).
P.S. If Amazon is out of books, you can order from Images Unlimited website for the same price, with free shipping.

Share this story from a special night long, long ago with your young children. The Littlest Christmas Kitten recalls the night Baby Jesus was born and the effect this had on the cat family. It is a story of how the lost is found in the midst of a miracle.
