Those of you who have gotten to know me over the past 20 years know that one of my favorite things in life is dancing. As a young child I took tap, jazz, ballet and acrobatic classes...pretty much any type of dance class my mom would be willing to enroll me in!! In junior high school and high school I continued my love for dance as a cheerleader in ½ time performances and pom pom routines. And then here I am today getting to teach Zumba as part of my "job" which I absolutely love!! Read More

The holidays tend to offer ample opportunities to give...to look "outside"...whether it's giving to a friend in need, our favorite charity, or just giving of our precious time by sharing the holidays with friends and family.

A couple of months ago, Chris and I had the chance to hear Deepak Chopra speak as key note speaker for a business conference we attended in California. It was a very interesting presentation but the take home message that lodged itself in my brain was the following: Deepak said that 85% of all medications dispensed in United States are for the 5 conditions that are outlined by the acronym PANIC! Pain...Anxiety...Nausea...Insomnia...Constipation!! Read More

I think awhile back I may have shared this simple concept with some of you, but as we approach this holiday season I feel it bares repeating. My dad was a Methodist pastor, and one of his sermons that I will never forget, and have often referred back to, was about how to pull ourselves out of a pity party. Read More

Well, given my last 2 weeks, it would be hard for me to write about anything but the birth of my 3rd grandson, Brayden Tillman Swindle. I was honored to be asked by my oldest daughter, Jamie, to be present at the birth as I had been for my middle daughter Brittany for the birth of both of her sons!! The fact that Jamie lives 750 miles away in Atlanta, and was admitted to the hospital 2 weeks early for severe pre-eclampsia, made this simple request a bit challenging. Read More
