Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

For more info like this, and on many various subjects, please take a moment for yourself (it IS therapy, after all...) and visit the Everyday Health site. Lots of good reading for you there, and it's cheap!
