Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Hangin’ Out On The Twitter

Did you ever spend time hangin’ out on the Twitter feed, fall into a post and feel like someone spent time in your home and just wrote out your whole life?

That doesn’t often happen to me, so yesterday, when it did, it was a big enough deal to share. Big enough because the posts were about stress and who out there doesn’t have any of that? I don’t think anyone is scrolling to the comment feed to tell me they can skip this read because they don’t have stress in their life. Now that we agree, we should all keep reading.

Strolling through the Twitter yesterday Arianna stopped in my scrolling with What I Know About Stress Now That I’m In My 50’s by Lisa Belkin. I wondered if she knew the same stuff about stress that I did, so I clicked. (Wait – don’t click yet!)

Wow. She must’ve met me. Or lived in my house the past two and a half years because I couldn’t have explained myself any better than she so eloquently did. I wonder if she knows you, too? I bet she does. (Wait – not yet!)

In the posts she lists the six things she learned about stress and I’ll be damned if I just didn’t spend 942 blog posts learning those very same things – especially number one. (Not yet.) Even better, on the bottom of the post there’s also this link : What I Know About Stress Now That I’m In My 60’s (Sorry, not yet.) Ann Brenoff gives the list of her six things she learned about stress. (Also very eloquently – ah..to write like that…maybe someday.)

Now why did I want you to stick around here when all that necessary info is just a click away? Before you read the posts, just try and list six things you learned about stress in this decade of your life. I’m going to try doing the same, but it’s way harder after you read the posts, so I wanted to make it easier for you. If you make a list, share it in the comments below.

And so, as another day goes by, I bid you to make your list, then go click, and…I have written.
