May Day Basket - Social Media Neighbor Day

What fun to run to a neighbor’s house with a May basket to hang on their door. Then there is the joy at the other end – opening the door and seeing the colorful collection.

Whether we may or may not be fortunate to give or get a May basket, let’s remember to do something good for another today.

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.

American flag

This week-end let us recall why we are celebrating – it is to remember and give honor to those courageous men and women who worked, and many died, to protect and preserve our freedom.

Today we fly the American flag,  say a prayer for the fallen, and give thanks for those who made it back safely.

Thank you to my late husband, Peter, who was in the Navy and fought in the Korean War and to my brother, Richard,  who was in the Army.

Need a graduation gift? Here’s an uplifting book and you’ll recognize the author. It looks like a kids book but older teens enjoy the message as well.

Oh, The Places We’ll Go! by Dr. Suess. Not only a kids book!

As we approach another Thanksgiving Day, let us give thanks. We are blessed with a great nation, even with its many faults and failings. As a country and as a people, we are better off in the things that matter.

We have peace in our land. We have warm homes and food on our tables. Granted, there are many who do not have these necessities and comforts. But we are a compassionate people, and as a whole, give a great deal of money and goods to needy causes. When there are tornadoes and hurricans, efforts are made to help out our neighbors. It is said that Americans give more money to charity than the rest of the world combined.

My Weight Loss Coach

January is almost over and I haven’t said anything about one of the most challenging resolutions: losing weight. Every year we say this, perhaps, but will this be THE YEAR? This might be a goal to consider not only for adults but for children, too.

If you as an adult set your goal very high, it may not be very realistic. Make it reasonable. Think how much better any amount of weight loss will make you feel.

What are some of the simple ways to do this? Here is a start:

The First Thanksgiving, painted by Jean Leon G...

Just as early Americans were thankful for surviving that first winter, let us also show thanks and gratitude for all we have received.

There seems to be more of an emphasis on Black Friday this season than on giving thanks for all the good things God has given us. Instead of wanting more and more “stuff”, let’s give thanks for all we have this Thanksgiving Day and everyday.

What are you thankful for? Family, friends? Warm home? Food? Clothes? Good health? Talents? Abilities? Connections? Sky, moon, stars? Trees, flowers, grass, sun?
