Peace is what we each bring to the world.




Too often we assume the roles of 
" peace keeping " to a higher sort 
of authority.But each of our are the 
pieces to a peaceful society and -
of humanity.There's no other way
we're going to manage each other
in any other way but with integrity 
to take good self care and not be 
reactive to others around us or to
the events carrying tragedies/fear.

Imagine if we each could take 
our dismays and became a bit 
more mindful to those who live
in harms way on every level.To
show compassion instead of a
sort of ignorance that problems
of the world are other people's
problems(WE are the PEOPLE).

Borders do not divide humanity.
Diversity exemplifies qualities to
mix together for insightful and -
creative ways to get along on this
planet.Power struggles snap back.
Nobody wins.

It takes courage to keep walking out 
the door and into the public with the 
dignity and grace to be kind in a day 
and age when so many people are 
becoming very detached from civility.
Don't let this make you bitter or jaded
we need one another to keep society 
safe n sounder - as much as we can.

Time to turn " hopes n prayers "
into daily acts of patience - and 
kindness to one another.Peace 
is what you bring to the world ♥

This feeds our own spiritual side
to keep practice living peacefully.
With the tenacity to never give up
our rights to be free to follow our
hopes and dreams.This is also
the example our youth need
for future generations as well.

We are each a piece of peace.

The sound of the rain.

~Photo by Tabitha Montgomery ~


This mornings mediation muse...

I woke up this quiet morning on my street
to the sounds of the peaceful Summer rain.

I opened the window to let in the fresh air
of the new day that carried in songs from 
the early rising morning birds.I only wish 
I knew the words - but I trust what they 
sing is meaningful among themselves and
for a human ear to catch it means there is
enough peace and quiet to ponder those
meanings.That mix of softly beating rain
and crystal clear charms of the birds chirp
to me - carries mornings mediation bliss.


My heart feels heavy as the damp skies.

Grey clouds shrouding the sun as it is my
own light inside me.Nobody can deny the
state of the world with it's senseless acts
of violence and the united innocent pain


and grief that follows.Humans are afraid
to leave the house.People are angry and
feel powerless to make justice work right.

I see so many tears, so many death tolls.

We all see it on the news every single day.


We feel it among tension and anxiety out 
on the streets and in traffic.That silence
can feel so hopeless if we don't break it
with common decency and genuine care
that's also known as humanity.We're all 
in this together.Those good mannerisms
- can rebuild a persons faith in a new day
and in each of our own personal lives.




The rain is slowing down to dainty drops 
bouncing off the bright pink rose bush,out 
in my garden.The crows are moving in for
brunch as they scope out the garbage cans
lined up in the alley ways.The clouds look 
a bit brighter now.There is a whole day for
me to channel my energy into productivity.
Sometimes we've just got to unload all of 
the negativity-  and human condition angst.

Non of us can save the world - but we can 
exercise our rights to live free and in peace
by not becoming what angers and hurts us.
Everyone deserves to wake up on their own
quiet streets, hearing peacefulness in the rain -
any day of the year without heaviness or fear.

Because we should never give up our rights to 
finding some kind of peace within each of us.
A challenge for some of us more than others-
please don't give up-humanity needs you.

That way we have a little more brighter energy
to give back to the world instead of the letting 
the darker parts of our world - take it from us.
I don't want that to happen to me in my  life,
how about you and in yours ?

~ Customized Adventures of Seeking Inner Peace ~

Photo By Tabitha Montgomery 


~ A Sunday Muse ~
by Tabitha Montgomery.

Sitting beneath the late JuneVitamin D infused
warmth and sunlight,I began to travel back to
a time in my life when Summer was about the 
ice cream treats,running barefoot through the
sprinkler across soft,cool fresh cut lawns.
Or stabbing my little feet on sharp broken shells
at the beach as I hopped across the hot sand as
though they were fiery coals,so could to get to the
cool ocean seashore and frolic in the waves.Even
if I almost always caught a partial wave in with my
mouth and threw up a little.(I just loved the water).

There wasn't a care in the world other than maybe
those few abrasions on my feet or sunburned shoulders.
Nothing my Mom couldn't fix with a kiss,a band aid,
and a cold Noxzema hand painted across my back ,
when the sunburn started to shine and blister.

How could I have for seen my life ahead would be far
less endearing and as carefree as an adult ? Somehow 
though,I think I did know there were some tough life 
realities in store,I watched other adults.I was close to
my Mom.I was an intuitive young person.Yet,the tools
to keep that connection to curiosity and inner peace 
would still have to be earned through my own adult 
life experiences - and with a lot of self care work,I 
do believe I have gained a lot of helpful coping tools
to accept a lot of life and world reality.Circumstances.

Some wisdom comes full circle around for each of us.

I have to say without a shadow of a doubt that one of
the biggest life coping tools goes right back to childhood.
The simplest forms of freedom and carefree inner peace
was truly just enjoying the simplest things in life.It works.

I still love ice cream treats,running barefoot through the
sprinkler across soft and cool fresh cut lawns( on days 
when there are no water restrictions by laws in place ).
Stabbing my now big feet on sharp broken shells at the
beach as I now hobble across the hot sand as though they
are fiery coals,so I can to get to the cool ocean seashore
and frolic in the waves(once in a Half Moon Bay).Even if 
I almost ( but really try not to!) caught a partial wave in 
with my mouth and throw up a little.I still love the water.

There was a dark grieving time in my life when I would
just sit on the beach all in black with a hat on and just
watch my kids have fun while I sat,like a stone cold rock.
Years I yearned for that fun and freedom to play.It was
a big shifting place within me the first day I actually
felt the Summer sun and water fun let me feel like I
was actually letting go.Allowing myself to feel at
peace a little more and just stay in the moment.

I enjoy all of the simple activities I enjoyed as a kid and 
to me,being an adult I get to take them further away from
home by travelling,camping,outdoor adventures or just to
simply sit on my back deck,beneath the late June Vitamin D
infused warmth and sunlight,meditate for a little while and 
then treat myself to a little cup of ice cream and enjoy it.

Life often presents challenges,at times rather sudden ones.
It's good to take a time out to reflect on stress management
and try taking time out for ourselves and our families to have
a little fun,fresh air,exercise. (( Whatever works for you )).

Sometimes I think we adults are so fussy trying to find 
inner peace outside of ourselves or from other people.
When really,there's such a unique tool kit within each of 
us of places and things we like to do we can reconnect
with in a new adult form,that is truly a feeling of inner 
peacefulness and joy.That can also lead us to brand
new life experiences and reflective perspectives.


Here's wishing everyone appreciate many customized 
adventures along seeking your own kind of inner peace.

While we have a high profiled sex crime case
trending our news waves and open letters on
media surfacing, let's not forget that violence
against women is global.There are no forms
of justice for countless women we will never 
hear about.So thank you to everyone who's
sharing courage to speak out against crimes
of violence and sexual exploitation against an
innocent human being.Any age or gender.It is
time to keep this issue out in the open with the
letters,the conversations at home and society
hearing loud and clear - sex crimes must stop
being ignored or treated like someone asked
for it.The women in this *story were murdered
- because they refused it...." It " being raped...

Very Real & Healthy Introvert Here.

It took me years to figure out why I never felt
like I fit in socially around people and peers.
Almost 50 yrs old,I'm understanding myself
much more clearly as introverted and I like it.
Sharing some links for others who prefer the
quiet life for themselves as well.It's not a bad
or snobby thing.It's a very real,healthy thing.

Fentanyl Fatalities in 2016


Fentanyl fatalities are making headlines in 2016
as a highly potent and deadly form of opiate drug.

*BC Coroner had reported 200 deaths in Vancouver
already in 2016 caused by fentanyl drug overdose.
This includes other street drugs (turned deadlier) in
illegal drug labs that are being  laced with fentanyl.

Nobody can be sure what's in a drug they buy on
the streets.There are no guarantees and it is a true
game of Russian roulette.Terrifying for families who
have a loved one addicted - or experimenting with
recreational (some because their peers are socially).

Then there are those who become addicted to a
prescribed pain management medication.Without
the proper information and oversight to refills,the
out patient of a doctor who has prescribed any
kind of opiate pain medication can become very
addicted to their medication.BC doctors and the
lower mainland pharmacy now have a program in
place to monitor pain medication refills to act as a
means of monitoring patience med use and can be
a way to help intervene earlier if a patient has had
an addictive pattern developed after injury,etc.

Addiction not an easy realization for some people.
Some deny it or become afraid .Their body has
become addicted,the physical symptoms if they
don't have the medication can be unbearable.To
many of us,we cannot imagine what that's like.

Drug abuse,addiction and overdose can come in
all forms and walks of life.It does not discriminate.
It can happen subtly and quickly.It is not always a
choice for people to use " drugs " in the form of a
prescribed medication.The medical condition of
a person who's become addicted is very serious.

Recent high profile drug overdose example.
Prince may have been a very private person - but
was apparently well known for his self discipline
in keeping healthy.You just have to watch how he
performed to that.He got addicted and wanted to
get help.Sometimes that realization comes too late.

It's a tragic devastating loss to lose someone from
such a highly * preventable death.It's perplexing
how to help or stop it when we stand alone but as
a society,we can help keep current information out
in the public.Share warnings,resources,support and
health services that can intervene earlier,if people
are more aware and less afraid or less ashamed..

*
Preventable by either total abstinence - or under
carefully monitored medical assistance and usage.


The deaths of those who've died from overdose will
not be forgotten.They were lives that mattered and
are remembered how they lived - not just how they
died.Just as Prince will be remembered for his life -
so will countless others who don't make headlines.

Including very dear loved ones I've lost and maybe
you have lost too.Together we can maintain dignity
and courage to strip away stigmas and keep health
issues around drugs - a very real form of education
in our ways of acceptance,awareness,real changes
with lower risks and hopefully more lives saved.

~

Tabitha

*
The number of deaths are higher now I believe since
this report was made back in April of 2016.This is an
ongoing and very serious public health concern.

Smart Phone Etiquette & Respecting People's Privacy.

Modern day life of screen and social media
addictions has deeply deprecated privacy -
and intimacy.Be it a wedding,funeral,social
gathering of any kind.Even someone's own
death bed is featured in people's postings 
as though it's acceptable rather than human
decency to privacy and consideration to the
delicate fine line of dignity and respect.There's
no reason for anyone to be offended if people
want a Smart Phone'less event.Think about it.
If it really offends you - there's something you
may want to look at a little more deeply.All of
us should.We seem to be desensitized to life
experiences - and - it's truly personal value.
Maybe that's the kind of value we all need as
a technological society need to reclaim again.
Respectively

~ Good Morning June 2016 ~

Someone flying a big Tiger kite at the lake one Summers day.

Nothing compares to that reflective feeling siting by a fire.

Mouth watering locally grown strawberries are THE best ♥

Tis the season for these little miracle workers :)
~
I love everything about the month of June,
most of all - the warm weather that brings
with it an abundance of fresh colorful roses 
and flowers,sweet strawberry fields forever.

So much local fresh produce to devour and
fabulous Summer recipes to create with the
seasonal fruits n veg w/BBQ recipes as well.

Fresh water lakes and lush forests to explore.
Road trips music,potato chips,starry nights
with loved ones,camping,romantic picnics,
canoeing among the frogs and dragon flies.

The list of joys in June can vary for everyone,
for me.It really narrows down to the beautiful
ambiance of Mother Natures Spring meeting 
Summer mid month.I love the great outdoors.

~
Here's wishing everyone enjoy the transition
from Springtime into Summer time.Stay safe
and enjoy making warm new life adventures
that turn to memories until next new season.

A little bit more about why / what I Blog here.

I blog a lot about up to date
health/law regulations where
drugs and alcohol abuse are
profiled.Addiction has a very
cruel history in my life as I've 
lost too many.All different life
ending circumstances but all
could have been prevented.
This is another site that shares
a lot of good up to date info /
and supportive links for anyone
facing the realities of addiction
or loss by overdose in their lives.
I have extend my gratitude to all
who share the courage to never
giving up on education and the
power of awareness.When it's
backed up with action,it matters.

When our two dogs became just one..

Baby Alice walking her friend Honey
by clutching a leash in her baby teeth.

 

 

Honey was my shadow ♥
Honey was Alice's sidekick and mentor.

 

Our furry family members cannot live forever
but there  unconditional love does.

I shot this one morning after Honey had passed away.
I found Alice somewhat reflective.Grieving ?
Reconnecting with Alice feels great and I am grateful
for her patience with me.I think she knew I'd come
around to giving her much more attention again.
And she was right ♥
~

Here's the written version for anyone interested.


Just over a year ago,I lost my beloved little 17 yr old
long  haired rescue pooch,named Honey.She was my
shadow.A caring and playful canine friend and forever
family member.I loved her to pieces.Then one day we
( my human family ) adopted a LabXHusky puppy that
I named Alice.Together the two become fast friends,with
Honey maintaining her place at the foot of the bed.It was 
all good.A healthy few years went by when Honey got 
ill with age.She passed away and Alice was left without
her little side kick and mentor she had known all her life.

But recently I have become very aware and or able to 
admit to myself that somehow through my grieving my
beloved Honey,that Alice got a little lost in the shadows.
I hadn't been taking her for walks like I used to or out 
to the park.I stopped playing as much with her and sort
of began to take her companionship for granted I guess.
But I didn't mean to.

Today I felt a profound realization and took time out
to really reconnect again with my beloved Alice.
I am grateful for her unconditional love.



When two dogs become one,
there is still so much love nurture.
Just as she continues to nurture me.

Bring on the new week..Vrooom




I like Mondays.( Usually ) They're good days to kick
off a new week with new perspectives and hopefully
refreshed focus to meet a list of things to do.We are 
each capable of dreading the norm of a mundane or
stressful routines we put ourselves through during the
week.I'm of the mine at this point in my life to keep a
customized perspective that each day I decide how I
will deal with life.It starts with the willingness to just 
do my best,enjoy the process - and stay fearless.

It makes for a much more fulfilling life,even
if we can't shake fears we can just bring them
with us while we decide to move ahead anyways.

Here's wishing you all the kind of week you each 
hope for in your own worlds and life routines too.

Morning muse by the gentle music in the rain.

Early morning meditation beneath
the sounds of the tippy toeing rain.
Like a distant tap dancing song,it's
carrying a mildly amusing upbeat to
it.

Fresh air through the open window.
Peaceful holiday Monday as no cars
out on the roads this early.Just birds
flying freely,searching for breakfast.

I perched with my beloved hot coffee -
and let my big dog share a blanket on
the couch beside me.She's a big baby.

We just sat.Staring out the window.
Ringing in a new day with gratitude.

Here's to the simple moments to use
for our own mental and spiritual health.

Like a well balanced meal to nurture a
body - so to is a well balanced day for
overall wellness.Takes a bit of practice
when we fall off course.Worth every bit
of effort to keep trying what works for a
sense of well being within.Self discipline
does not have to carry high exceptions.

Sometimes it just takes tuning out those
usual distractions in our day to day habits.
Just sit peacefully, listening to the rain and
our deeper,healthier intuitions guiding us.

~ Literacy ~


In this day and age of constant screen time distractions book still make me happy.

I'm sipping coffee among boxes -
and piles of books this morning.
Antique books to contemporary.



I am in my glory and got to really
thinking about literacy.How often 
we can take reading and writing
for granted.Some people may not
be well read,know how to spell that
great or not have the best grammar.



I hope they ignore critical people who 
seem to like pointing out spelling and
or grammar errors online and just let
themselves self express as they learn
to read and write more clearly by trying.



Never in a millions years have I ever 
felt such a connection to written words 
and humanity as I do at this later point 
in my life.I am grateful I can read and I
want to support any adult who may not
be able to read and write very well to 
not give up if they want to learn more.
None of us are perfect.



There are so many new places to go in
life when we can self express and read
the words from others as well.It's a gift.
Read and write as you wish.The mind 
is meant to learn,keep it open just like
a book..and keep turning the pages ..
smile emoticon

Here's to the joy of reading and writing.
( and the freedom to as well ).

Be it in front of a computer screen
or old fashioned paper.Never give
up your rights and pleasures to
keep literacy alive and well
in your life and mind.

Note to self : Break stubborn old cycles of procrastinating..

So often,I have found my good life intentions
are caught in a vicious cycle of inspirational
ideas - and ever so habitual procrastinating.

The perfectionist in me sitting at an imaginary
round table with the self critic and somewhat
shy introvert,continuing to take over my courage
to get past a few of these hang ups.It can slowly
eat at my self esteem if I don't stay aware of the
energy I give into the old,rather than just doing
my best for today to do what I can.It's truly an
eye opener when I move around my fears and
see what's around the corner of my goals, with
willingness.( I say " around " because there's a
few fears that will likely linger within but I'm not
going to just stand there staring that them,right ?)

It's been taking some practice and starting to pay
in ways I used to shy from imagining for myself in
realistic ways.Life isn't that hard,it's our thinking
and ways we deal with ourselves that I find is the
most interesting and often,challenging.Slowing it
down to each moment adds up to a more steady
and patient life journey.I am grateful for this place
in my life today.I'm more productive and focused.

The more energy I give to the positive parts of my
vitality - the easier it is to chip away and eventually
- break stubborn old cycles of procrastinating.

No important goal is too big or too small not
to work to meet it,with patience and courage.

What are waiting for,really ?

Fresh new week,fresh new perspectives.


Fresh Rose in our home garden after a garden hose shower.
It's petal so velvety and delicate yet sturdy and resilient against 
the unpredictable elements of nature.This to me is symbolic of
our spirits and cognitive wellness.When we take time to stop 
and refresh our perspectives.Breaking older habits of critical or
worrisome thinking.We're meant to grow and bloom like all of 
nature's life.So here's to fresh new week in life with the gifts of
willingness to take chances on fresh new perspectives with who
we are,what we want from today. Life is about growing,embrace.
Wishing you a productive and healthy new week !

When is a little,enough ?

Sunrise photo taken by Tabitha Montgomery © 2016


How many times do we hear ourselves complain we wish we had 
this,that or the other ? How often do we grimace about our looks,
our thinking,our procrastinating ?How many times do we catch our
own attitudes and behaviors,mimicking the ones we complain about
in our society ? How often do we ignore the fear of becoming what
we fear ? Will we ever be enough ? Will this life ever give us enough?

How we view the scales of needs is purely from our own perspectives
of priorities.The basic fundamental depths of our humanity and spirituality.
Who are we ? What is really the most important parts of our being today ?

I honestly believe,if more people realized just how much they do have in 
their lives,they'd settle for a different kind of more humbled happiness and
acceptance.Add a little bit of gratitude in there and we'd all be better off to
work harder at our bigger goals in life rather than dragging our heels with a
sense of never being good enough.Happy enough.At some point we could 
just stop and reconsider how we view ourselves with a little more self care.

When the sun rises,it is enough to make me stop and appreciate it shedding
light on new perspectives to be open to new possibilities.When is a little of 
anything in our lives,ever going to be enough ? When we decide it is good 
enough for today,without settling for less.

Because we may very well be settling for less
- if we're never happy always wanting more.

" A little more variety to support ourselves "

A friend of mine recently made a statement
about her personal life circumstances that I
keep thinking about.Even though she has 
people in her life she's concerned about,it
is time for her to still enjoy life for herself...

I think a lot of us can relate to that idea.To
move on with our own lives when we have 
people in our personal lives who aren't all
doing so good.It's easy to get sidetracked
and preoccupied by codependency and or
worrying.When we balance our lives more ,
I think we're better able to find some sense
of clarity and more optimism while there is 
still uncertainty nearby.Life is short and I'm 
grateful to not hold back my own passions 
and goals while hoping the best for others
I care about who may be struggling today.


That does not mean I don't care or have a
sense of support for them,it means I do try
to give them room to grow,just as I am doing.

I will always be available for the love and the
no BS support for others but that my energy
never has to come at a cost to my own life -
and wellness.


To anyone living with alcoholism or addictions 
in or very nearby their personal lives,I support
you to reach out in your own ways to find some
sense of relief from stress at times.To balance 
your own self care with the concerns for others.
It is very easy to lose sleep and to stress when
we live with uncertainty and fears but there is a
place to detach with love so we can still live life..
- with a little more variety to support ourselves.


We'll never give up on those we love who may 
be struggling in life.I am always sending out the
hope and good vibes to anyone struggling today
and always.Life is personal,humanity is universal.

I am not afraid of bees,I am fearful for them.

I am not afraid of bees,I am fearful for them.
I tried to close my Bee Group to manage my
time online with projects I work on,offline.But
my passion for bees are forever...Everybody 
who takes a seat on this "ride called life" has 
an obligation to give something back - before
they give up their seat to the new generation.

( No matter what good causes,it all matters )
Here's to keeping fresh food and flowers on 

the table for many generations to come.If we
an figure out how to protect bees - let's do it.
World + wellness = humans to protect nature.

Patience reduces anxiety,who knew ?

Sometimes we cannot do all we want today.
Challenging as that feels some days more
than others,we just can't cut corners - nor
is that even a healthy self care to manage.
Patience,priority,acceptance help keep our
perspectives balanced.To me,using our own
minds to make this choice is a privilege. Just
to slow down and not rush, means we can be
working towards something important in ways
to reduce anxiety and teaches us the rewards
feeling balanced.It takes practice sometimes -
but well worth it.Whenever there is something
important and or meaningful to work towards,
do so with genuine pace and grace - makes it
all the more better a quality of our daily living
and future outcomes.Why rush a good thing ?
Here's to not needing to make up excuses and
just doing our best for today with honest effort.
Gaining trust in ourselves is not as hard as we
think when we put it into actions each new day.
My Mother always told me " patience is a virtue "
I'm so grateful to be understanding the meaning
of virtue with myself - at this point in my mid life.
Pacing our lives with patience - reduces anxiety.
Who knew ?

~ Mid Week Morning Muse ~



Mid week morning coffee.
Perched on the couch with
a Garden Basics How To 
book.Sunrise happening
behind a wall of dense fog.
Quiet house.Balance within
me.I hope I can keep it this
way for the day.I have a lot
I need to get done for today.
Birds calling out to each one
from a top tree branches and
singing from fence posts.This
is how I try to start a new day,
with focus on peacefulness....
Wishing everyone find a way 
to their own balance.It is not
always easy to do sometimes.
That is why I practice it daily.
Rinse and repeat as needed..
and keep exploring what works
best for your own mental reprieve.
The sun is trying to find a break in
the clouds outside..How symbolic.
I think I'll fix myself a second cup.

Sunday musings..

I'm realizing how important my Sunday's are..

To log in some serious quiet time to reflect,let go,
to soak in the solitude and check in with myself.
See how I am doing.What I'd like to change and
or do differently with some current challenges.As
well as appreciate all that I have in my life today.

One tip that keeps reoccurring in my inventory is
the keys to feeling and being more organized.It's
a big deal for me working from home.As well as
just keeping a household tidy and less cluttered.

Taking time out to just be,re energizes me with a
good time out for thought recollections.I balance
my day with fresh air and activity as well so by a
new Monday,I hope to be focused on productivity.

Here's to the life and health benefits are taking time
out for ourselves when we can to catch our breath
clear our thoughts and move forward with balance.

To me,that's pretty important.
{{Thank you,Sunday.}}

My new Twitter Account.2016.

Priorities VS Procrasination VS Patience VS Persistance

I woke up this morning with a throbbing
tooth ache.Today is the day I get that big
wisdom pulled finally.It's grown in a way
that just does not work with my jawline.

I put it off long enough.I am anxious to
get this done with nothing more than the
usual freezing and headphones to watch
a tv.mounted to the ceiling.I'll try to let
my imagination envision a screw coming
lose and the monitor splashing down on
to my face in the dentist chair or that my
tooth won't budge and the dentist will
have to bring out the BIG pliers to use.

Point to my post today is we're often
putting off things to do ,goals to meet,
obligations or health check ups out of
procrastination.Other times we're just
waiting for the right time.Which is often
anytime we just do it.Get it over with -
or realize it was not as bad as we've
imagined.We often live like we're all
trudging through day to day life.It's a
matter of willingness to face all of our
lagging in life with procrastination VS
Patience VS Persistence Vs Priorities.

Because there is no excuse for putting
off important things in life.Be it a goal,
project,obligation,responsibility to self
or another person.Or trip to the dentist.

I may not like having to get my tooth
pulled today but I know once it's over
I will have done what's best for myself.
It will heal over and they'll be no more
pain.I hope I get a really cool prize.I
used to love those fake rhinestone rings.

I'll see if I can get one for myself today
because no priority when met comes
without it's rewards.From a simple little
toy ring at the dentist to bigger rewards
of meeting something more meaningful.

Here's to deciding what we deserve to
make a priority to face procrastination,
with patience, with steady persistence.

After all,what are we waiting for really -
A bad tooth ache cannot fix itself,can it ?

* Post Update *
It's time for me to have all four of my
wisdom teeth pulled so appointment
will be re booked  for a future date.
I'm becoming ever so mindful - that
our bodies and help cannot and or
should not, be on our list of those
things we procrastinate.Our health
and bodies ( teeth included ) are all
we have got...That puts it up higher
on the priorities list the older I get ♥
How about you ?
