Book Of The Week – The Art Of Getting Well

The Art Of Getting Well

No matter how difficult our lives,
How blocked and defeated we seem,
There is always a way forward.
David Spero, R.N

Did you know that almost 1 in 2 out of all Americans
Suffer from at least one chronic illness?

If you are looking for a book with an empowering message
That can help you to lead a healthier and more fulfilling life –
No matter where you are now – this is it!

There was in me an invincible summer.

Tsunami gave me insomnia for the past few weeks
But, as always, he can do no wrong.

Inspire Me Monday #56 – Week Of January 28, 2012

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
