    Ski and Mamabear – Great points! I was just thinking how I have a nurses pinning to plan/run right between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It really makes for full holidays each year – and while I am feeling so much better these days, I know I am still not at my best.

    I would also remind folks to savor the really important moments – really get into them. Like savoring fine wine (though it may be savoring opening gifts), a calgon bath (for those who are old enough to remember those "take me away" commercials) or finding small momentos of the little things. Savoring is an art that not only reduces stress – it creates a happy side. <img decoding=” title=”Smile” /> Happy is healthier.

    Mamabear – I have enjoyed reading your posts – you seem knowledgable. Are you a nurse or health professional? Cathy
