Chicken soup can certainly help you in calming down and dealing with life changes. Honestly I use lavender oil in a diffuser in the kitchen while I am cooking. This seems to help me deal with life changes. Let’s be honest, these types of changes in our lives are difficult to say the least.

I truly believe inspiration can come from the most difficult of situations. It can be hard to try to find the positive in most situations when you are going through a hard time. I have found that whenever you are going through a rough time to focus on the people around you that need help, this makes it easier to forget about your own problems. I like to focus on my son who is the most amazing person in my life.

When I lost my sister unexpectedly it sent me into an emotional and physical tailspin, and I couldn’t understand how my body was reacting and why it was beyond my control. As you will read in “In Cuffs” in the Chicken Soup Say Goodbye to Stress book, I sought wise counsel through my nurse practioner, and began the healing process. I hope my story gives you insight…and a few chuckles as well!

I am delighted to have my article “Staying Sharp at 95” included in BOOST YOUR BRAIN POWER! My mother-in-law, Lillian Seewald, was a unique woman and had much insight and wisdom to offer regarding staying mentally fit. I am glad for the opportunity to share that with others. It actually thrilled me even more than receiving good reviews on my latest novel.

I feel honored to have my story, “Just Breathe” in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Say Goodbye to Stress.” When we moved to Cuenca, Ecuador I had to do a lot of breathing to make it through the final weeks before our departure. This is a great book which combines great medical advice backed up with real-life stories!

I was so honored to have my story, “My Husbands Motto,” included in “Say Goodbye to Back Pain.” Besides the other inspiring stories, the information Dr. Silver added makes this book on back pain very unique. Everyone who finds themselves looking for options on how it should be treated needs this book. Thanks Chicken Soup and Dr. Silver!
