Good Day Tuesday, Hello, today is the last day of March, the 31st, 2020, what are you doing? Dan and I have a conference call with our financial adviser. With the way of uncertainty in the world today, it will be interesting on what he may say. But, for right now, I’m going to focus on some memories of good times. As you first walk in, my front door I have a picture of my daughter Danielle and our Buddy. We brought Buddy home when Danielle was nine. Dan thought that this would teach our daughter responsibility walking, feeding and playing with him. I knew that this would not work and it will be mostly me to feed and walk Buddy. I went with it and Buddy was part of our family for fourteen yea


Good Day, Hello all, today Dan and I are embracing the change, its going on the 14th day of hunkering down. This morning I decided to embrace the positive of this uncertain time. I go through my house and look at all the precious gifts from my friends that I kept from the past. I can’t believe that these were in boxes in storage for 7 years, but now I have them for keepsakes. Do you have something that is a keepsake that you kept that is precious to you? Send me a message and tell me about it! This angel was given to me by my angel on earth when I was having functional medicine for my cancer in Mexico. Vera taught me so much and her passion is what continues me to educate others. The message


Good Day This is Dan’s and my 14th day of hunkering down. Be safe today everyone, go out and enjoy the sun- but be aware of your surroundings and keep a distance from one another. When I was raising our daughter, Danielle’s safety was the first rule that I taught her. She really didn’t understand why I was so strict by not allowing her to adventure out when she was young. Much like these uncertain times, we have to know our surroundings and stay our distance for safety reasons. I learned to take each day at a time and be thankful for today. Its Sunday and Dan showed me this prayer that he read; I would love to share it with you. Because we all are going through a difficult time. I’m going


Good Day, Today is Saturday our 13th day of hunkering down, but we are keeping busy. We were awoken up by a picture up above our bed that fell and hit Dan in the head around 5:30. Thank goodness he was sleeping on his front. This picture is very light and was drawn by our daughter. I told Dan it was a sign from his mother, for it is her birthday and maybe she was trying to tell him something. Since it was a drawing of the TB Bucs football team winning the Super Bowl Dan said “She Was”. When speaking to my mom today, she stated maybe that was her birth time. So, today I honor Thelma Malin. Are there any weird things like this happening to you? Love to hear, just send me a message. Dan is rea


Good morning, Today Dan and I are celebrating our grandson’s 2nd birthday. For many years since our daughter left for college, we have been social distancing ourselves and following her career. We learned about Skype when she was going to college in London to get her masters. So, this is not something different. We do visit during the year, but since our grandson has been born; we do have more face-time together. This is and is the future of parents and their children that go off to college and take jobs in other locations. Social media refers to websites and applications that are designed to allow people to share content quickly, efficiently, and in real-time. Many people define social medi


Hello Everyone, Today is 11 days since we have been hunkering down and staying our distance from others. This is the time of social distancing and our actions are powerful. Social distancing, is a set of infection control actions intended to stop or slow down the spread of a contagious disease. The objective of social distancing is to reduce the probability of contact between persons carrying an infection, and others who are not infected, so as to minimize disease transmission, morbidity and ultimately mortality. This is what’s going on with the corona- virus at this time. Social distancing is most effective when an infection can be transmitted via droplet contact (coughing or sneezing); dir

What to Do When You Disagree with Your Doctor

Good Morning, Did you miss me yesterday? Dan and I had to get up early around 5:30, for a doctor’s appointment. Yes, even in uncertain times, its important to keep up with your health. We have been back in the states for about nine months and still trying to find the right doctors for Dan. Its been very hard to find an open-minded doctor in this part of the world. It took going back to our family doctor, to tell him that we did not like Dan’s urologist. He found us one in a town called Christiansburg, however its about an hour by bus. This appointment was made three months ago and cancelled twice by the doctor’s office. So, Dan did not want to cancel again, even under these uncertain times.


Good Afternoon Monday, Its our second week hunkering down. Dan and I are keeping busy, walking, reading, cooking and cleaning. This uncertain time, children are home and its spring why not get them started on chores. Like rearranging their rooms, I always liked changing the look of my rooms, it makes me feel like it’s a new space. This might make them feel good in that they are surrounded be a different space that’s theirs. There are a lot of ideas regarding staying in touch with society. With the social distancing, we can use the internet more and our I phone to keep in touch with one another. There is so much that we as a family get involved with. Some companies, are thinking of our childr


Good Morning Sunday, Well, its been a week now that Dan and I have been hunkering down. We’ve been able to take walks around our neighborhood and stay a distance from others. I was listening to a program the other day and they were talking about how important our words are that come out of our mouths. This Is How Powerful Your Words Are - Be Careful What You Speak into Your Life - Motivational Speech by Fearless Soul. I truly believe that faith plays a big part on what comes out of your mouth. Its like planting a seed in your heart and speaking to it that it will happen. We have to motivate our words to speak that things will be good, its just a little setback. We will overcome this virus. W


Hello and good afternoon, I’m a little late in posting, I was talking this morning to a friend in Mexico, mother and sister-in-law. The time waits for no one and it just ticked away this morning. It’s the weekend and with all of us hunkering down, we are not getting our Vitamin D that we need. Go outside if you can and roam in nature. Go out and see the spring weather and the change of trees and flowers. Even hug a tree, for they need loving and caring just like we do. We need faith that this corona virus will leave us and learn by this situation. We need more sunshine in our lives. THE ROOT OUR ENVIRONMENT This was written also in 2017 Before we can begin, we first need to know the meaning


Hello and good morning. Dan and I practice hope each day, with the uncertainty going on in the world around us we feel very blessed. We trust that our lives will only get better, when one door closes another door opens. I believe that hope is the end of one situation or opportunity is often followed by the start of a new one. Professional and Spiritual this is what hope is: Is it a wishy washy maybe or a kind of unsure optimism? The modern idea of hope is “to wish for, to expect, but without certainty of the fulfillment; to desire very much, but with no real assurance of getting your desire.” In Scripture, according to the Hebrew and Greek words translated by the word “hope” and according t


Good Morning to All, Its been four days that Dan and I are hunkering down and we are still not arguing. Besides jokes we are keeping busy. Yesterday Dan was glued to the TV for Tom Brady was signing with the Bucs. The sport channels all day was on the topic of Tom Brady and how the Super Bowl will be in Tampa Bay and that this will be perfect. Dan also heard that there was a long line at the Buccaneer ticket center, what a difference a day makes. We as a family about fifteen years ago had season tickets. I can remember when the Buccaneers were the Super Bowl winners. The day they won, the stadium was full to capacity and even overflowing. Those were the days my friends. Since this corona-vir


Good Morning all, Yesterday I had a senior moment, it was 8:17 and I told Dan to turn the channel to Mask Singer. I even called my mom to remind her that it was on, but wait it was Tuesday not Wednesday. But of course, mothers know best, my mom is of course older than me and remembered it was on Wednesday. This leads to the saying, getting older gracefully. Today I get my first social security check. Oh, its finely here time doesn’t wait for anyone. With the times being very uncertain and the way the job market may be, I’m glad I chose getting my social security at 62. I can remember when I was in my twenties and thirties like it was yesterday. Now Dan and I are watching our daughter grow an


Happy St. Patrick’s Day All, This year all the events were cancelled for the corona-virus. But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it in your own home. Get some Irish music going, even go on YouTube and get a video of an old parade and watch it. Create your own fun. This is what Dan and I’m doing. Looking back at other St. Patrick’s Day parades and pictures to keep Dan and I in touch with the holiday. Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of


Hello Our Followers, Let’s reach out and touch someone by calling, keeping in touch, letting them know that you care. During times like these, it’s always nice to get a call or text with a special message. I call my mom everyday and it makes me feel good. I know she feels good. Likewise, I text my daughter everyday to let her know we love her. This special message only takes a minute or two to let them know you care. I also through this blog reach out to you with knowledge and care. I wrote these pieces several years ago. SATURDAY, JUNE 30, 2012 I REACH OUT TO YOU It’s been awhile since I last posted my own words. I am doing awesome, the question is how are you all. Each day I reach out to a


Good Morning All, Dan and I are hunkering down and relaxing. While we are protecting ourselves from the corona-virus and staying away from big crowds, this time can be used for things that you find need to do around the house. I’m going to use the time to read about herbs. It’s amazing how much herbs can heal. I have been gathering my recipes together and writing them down, so I can share them with you on the blog. I have been taking pictures of the breakfast, brunch and dinners that I created, now including the ingredients and instructions with them. Dan can watch movies that I’m not interested in and he is also reading. The time is good for spring cleaning. This hunkering down reminds m


Good morning to all, Its Saturday, do you have anything planned? Dan and I are just going to stick close to home. The other day we received our buckwheat pancake mix from Amazon, it was Bob Mills brand. It took awhile to get here, I guess the reason was it came from Canada. It had English and French writing on it. We all have our own voice, its within us. Why I’m saying this, is sometimes someone tells us something and we listen and act on it without listening to our own voice within. I learned to go within and do what my heart says after researching and finding other ways that I feel more comfortable with. After all its you who will have to live with the decision. Make sure the decision is


Make It A Positive Good morning again Followers, Today is Friday the 13th, with all the bad news regarding the virus this day is fitting, Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day in Western superstition. It occurs when the 13th day of the month in the Gregorian calendar falls on a Friday, which happens at least once every year but can occur up to three times in the same year—for example, in 2015, Friday the 13th occurred in February, March, and November. 2017 through 2020 will all have two Friday the 13th, and the years 2021 and 2022 will have just one occurrence each. But I am not going there for this blog post is a way of healing and are articles of positive outlooks. Dan’s lucky numbe


Hello Our Followers, How was your Wednesday? Dan and I got some more items delivered today from Amazon, still waiting for a couple of other items. It feels like Christmas here at the Malins. Shopping for food and household items is fun and gives us time to explore our surroundings and do healthier things, like walking, exercising on the treadmill, do more research and read about healthier selections to share on the blog and website. For example, did you know that hugging can help to reduce levels of the stress hormone known as cortisol. Lower levels of cortisol allow the mind to calm and the body to relax. A study found that receiving hugs showed a positive effect on stress levels. The stres


Hello Our Followers, It’s now Wednesday, hump day. Dan and I start our day of with some coffee and we go through our e-mail to see if we got any important messages. Love to look at Facebook to see what my friends are up to and any inspirational messages. I always send my daughter a good morning message and some friends Then I start blogging to you all. After that, we listen to Joel on YouTube to get a spiritual message of the day along with a message of thanks and gratitude. I wrote this in 2010, the year that I was told that I had breast cancer. IT’S THE SEASON OF HOPE I’m Gratified That the energy Of hope and love is twinkled In each of our lives this year. We all have been through a lot;
