Moments of Life- Hospice Importance

This post may contain affiliate links, please see disclosure policy and see FTC Rules

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Moments Of Life. Have you ever needed to use hospice care for a family member? Hospice has been in existence for more than 40 years, yet, professionals in the field still see a need for basic information about hospice, advance care planning, care giving, and grief. That’s why, locally Optum Palliative Care is supporting the non-profit 501 (c) 3 National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s, “Moments of Life” campaign.  “Moments of Life” educates the public about the choices we all have when facing a life-limiting illness, and how choosing hospice is not ‘giving up.’  The campaign presents the facts about hospice, advance care planning tips, understanding grief, and caregiver stress. Hospice care is for people of all ages. I wrote a story about Rachael Reynold's . Rachael found out a year ago this month she had a very rare cancer. Rachael was a young 17 year old full of life teenager. Until, one day she had a pain in her stomach … [Read more...]

As part of Family Happiness Hour, each person selects their main catch, such as fish, shrimp or chicken, which is served with French fries and coleslaw.

Madison was not all that wonderful in high school. Madison loved being social rather than her school work. I tried telling her all throughout high school to study hard. Madison was a point away from getting a life scholarship to tech. Close but not close enough. Now, as a parent I procrastinated a lot. I also had a hard time getting off work to help Madison get signed up for school. As it stands right now, we have her schedule for classes. I am still waiting on some grant information.

Cleansing: the foundation of any beauty regime

This post may contain affiliate links, please see disclosure policy and see FTC Rules

Cleansing: the foundation of any beauty regime As we get older, the beauty products we choose to buy (or not) write their legacies on the surface of our skin. There’s nothing like the fresh sheen of a beautifully cared for complexion. The same, though, goes for neglect, enlarged or blocked pores, redness, scarring, pigmentation and acne: all tell-tale signs of a poor routine. It doesn’t take much to reclaim your glow, but first, you have to establish a daily cleansing ritual using the right face cleanser to show your skin some much-needed TLC. You also need to ascertain your skin type, or you could be using the wrong products.     Oily skin Usually, it’s quite clear if your skin is oily; your face will have a light sheen to it, and could have enlarged pores, blackheads or acne.
