"To love someone is to love their potential into reality."
In the spirit of Valentine's Day,
the above quote caught my eye. May we love others so that every ounce
of their potential oozes from them. And equally important, may we
recognize the people in our lives who are helping us reach our
potential, our reality. And lastly, if we aren't feeling loved, may we
seek to find people at midlife who are willing to build us up as we do
the same for them.
I continue to hear that members of the NABBW are enjoying their subscriptions to More
magazine, the national magazine for women 40+. If you're a member and
still haven't registered for your FREE subscription, please email us.
We are pleased to announce that Wyndham Hotel Group (WHG), one of the largest integrated hotel companies in the world, is now part of the NABBW
member benefits program. With 10 hotel brands representing nearly 7,000
hotels and more than 535,000 hotel rooms on six continents under the
Wyndham ®, Wingate® by Wyndham, Super 8®, Days Inn®, Ramada®,
Travelodge®, Howard Johnson®, Baymont Inn & Suites®, Knights Inn®
and AmeriHost Inn® brands, WHG comprise more than 10% of the domestic
hotel room supply.
All NABBW members can now get 10% off
the "best available rate" at all WHG participating hotels. Unlike other

It's encouraging to receive testimonials like the following from NABBW member Ann Leach:
membership packet arrived yesterday and I opened it immediately.
What I found inside was amazing! I loved learning about all the
great ways I can get involved and meet others in the association.
I also appreciated your long list of benefits- what a huge value you
offer for my small investment. You did a great job explaining it
all. And the extra goodies were fun, too. Thank you.

PASS IT ON: We all know her. She's at midlife. She wants to take care
of herself but can't always squeeze it in because she's so busy caring
for any of the following: her husband, mother, father, children,
grandchildren, in-laws, neighbors, friends, colleagues, etc. Won't you
please help her out by sharing this newsletter and the NABBW with her?

Just Published: A much-anticipated "travel guide" for the maturing modern woman making her way into the Age of Elegance.
Entering the Age of Elegance: A Rite of Passage & Practical Guide for the Maturing Modern Woman by Chloe Jon Paul
million baby boomer women have already entered the Age of Elegance,
which is a new stage of life with a new identity. More will follow; yet
many of these 40+
women are making this journey without any real advance planning.
Many of them don't even think of themselves as "elegant" but this
transition into the second half of their lives can take place with
style and grace.
Now think F-A-S-T: *format *approach *style *tempo
are the key elements which make this book original. It is written
as a travel guide filled with valuable information that will whet the
reader's appetite to explore resources in detail on the topics featured
in the book. The Table of Contents provides such
curiosity-evoking subtitles as Change Your "Oil Filter, The FGA
Quotient, The F-Word You Need to Use, The 10 Commandments of Aging
Motherhood, and Think MSN, Beyond Support Pantyhose, and Just heard It
through the Grapevine.
NABBW member and author has networked
with more than 25 leading women's organizations across the nation and
feedback on the book has been overwhelmingly positive.
Paul is the author of numerous published articles and What Happens
Next: a Family Guide to Nursing Home Visits...and More. She has
lectured across the country to professional and family caregiver
groups. She also holds the title of Ms. Maryland Senior America 2003.
