"Find something you like to
do. Learn to do it well, and do it in the service of the
people." ---Karlene Faith
It's hard to believe this is the first time I've greeted some of you in 2008. I hope your year is off to a grand beginning with people to love, something to do, and something to look forward to. Boomer women are in a great life stage to thrive and become more alive at midlife, and we're here to teach you how to do so.
The NABBW focus during January is It's All About Us. Our teleseminars are teaching us healthy diet and eating habits, the top seven plastic surgeries and all you need to know about them, how to dress fashionably at midlife, and what to think about the possibilities of forgetting the hair dye. Please be sure you see the list below. During February, we will focus on medical health issues such as the hot topic of menopause (that was supposed to be funny), overcoming toxic burdens, maintaining healthy midlife hearts, and every other topic pertaining to midlife health will be covered by Drs. Horn and Miller, our NABBW experts.
If you are interested in any of these topics, please consider joining us at www.nabbw.com. All teleseminars are FREE of charge to members, and if you can't be on the call, you can listen at your convenience or read them at a later date. This is only one of the many benefits of being a member of the NABBW. Please see our Member Benefits page for more details.
Thanks to everyone who has already sent us their submission for the Most Valuable Life Lesson Contest . This is a simple contest to enter. You do not need to be a writer to do so and you can win $100.00 cash!
Also, for the Baltimore locals and internet listeners, I will be on WCBM, Sunday, January 20 during the 4:00 o'clock hour. I hope you'll listen in if you're online or near a radio.
This issue is packed with articles that will educate and empower you to live the best midlife possible. Be sure to read what interests you and visit our sites.
Onward with grace,

I am a proud, participating member of NABBW and BWS who finds support and resources at all times, visiting the forums with acceptance and without pretention any time, day or night. My boomer sisters graciously share wisdom, humor, honesty, and stories of success and failure, as well as courage and fear. Dotsie gives us the tools and we are responsible for using them in good faith. I found friends, an editor, and a virtual assistant. I made a successful connection leading to an excerpt from my book appearing in the January/February 2008 issue of me*magazine. These possibilities were available to me because of Dotsie's dream, generosity, and dedication.

Ursula wonders what will happen now. It is true that she will have some extra time on her hands: her husband is aggressively pursuing that partnership in the law firm and her children are off creating their futures and she is slightly less needed on the home front. She consoles herself that it isn't so bad; she has a vibrant life meeting with friends, spending time on Junior League activities and possibly giving piano lessons again. She is not at all worried about filling her newly acquired freedom and toys with the idea of going back to school to further investigate her love of music and develop a gifted singing voice. Ursula is open to what God has in store for her---a prayerful, faithful woman she listens intently to his guidance--- but when He drops the chance of a lifetime in her lap that threatens to spiral her world out of control, it will take her trust in Him and a strict adherence to her convictions to allow her to make the most of an opportunity of a lifetime.
Allison Bottke's One Little Secret is an entertaining read. A fantastical, imaginative tale, it offers the reader a pleasant little escape. This jocular rendition of a suburban housewife's brush with stardom is set in a picturesque California neighborhood and carries with it a message of faith and love. One Little Secret is a fun addition to your library and is easily enjoyed.
Who, Me? Paranoid? Humor, Humor Everywhere

If you find you're short on time, but want something to read that's cute, lightly entertaining, and "relatable," then you might want to test drive, Who, Me? Paranoid? by Erica Stux. It could be this short, humorous book full of daily observations is just the ticket for you.
Her stories, such as husbands who think opening the freezer and staring is a sport, or another one where the author says she's "running a household with the deductive reasoning of Sherlock Holmes and the intuition of Agent 007," may have you saying, "that's my life, I totally get it!" My favorite story was "Cat-alyst" which was a story about a cat who wouldn't chase mice.
While Who, Me? Paranoid? is not your knee- slapping, "holding your tummy with laughter" type book, it does provide the reader with some really funny life experiences that can't help but tip the "Giggle-O- Meter" from time to time.

This is one of the best books you can give a loved one if they understand the beauty of planning for death and dying. It is also a helpful book for baby boomers who like to plan ahead.
The Coffins offer a complete guidebook for the end of life choices that will help you and your loved ones feel comforted prior to a death. Who better to write the book than a couple who owns Rogan's Memorials and deals with dying regularly.
The book allows opportunities to make your wishes known before faced with the death and dying issues that are often daunting and uncomfortable. They address financial and legal aspects including; living wills, last will and testaments, establishing trusts, and even funeral planning. In addition to defining all of these procedures, they also have a section of documents and forms to assist you with planning. If you are blessed enough to be able to address this issue with loved ones, this is the perfect book. If not, then you need to learn how to address the issue of death and dying and introducing this book may be the best first step.
TRANSFORM YOUR AGING LOVED ONE'S WINTER DOLDRUMS
By Barbara E. Friesner
December is a magical time!!! Starting around Thanksgiving, cities and towns across the country transform themselves into a winter wonderland. Lights, trees, holiday decoration; parties and family gatherings; holiday greetings to friends and relatives. Some days, cards and letters outnumber the bills and every snowflake adds to the delight. It's a magical time of year!
Then comes January and, as if with a flick of a switch, the parties stop, the mail is once again just bills, the lights are turned off, and we go back to life as usual.

Seven years ago, when I first started writing about late bloomers, it was unusual for someone to go back to school in midlife or start a new business at sixty-five. Today, while such endeavors might still not be considered commonplace, they are no longer particularly newsworthy. Americans are gradually accepting the idea that so long as our minds are alert and our bodies able, we can continue living lives of passion and purpose.
So in honor of Kathleen Casey-Kirschling, who next month becomes the first baby boomer to collect Social Security, here are some quick tips to help you keep moving forward.

Dream Big, Dream With Love
By Judith Sherven, Ph.D.
The celebration of the new year is the oldest of all continuing holidays. It was observed 4000 years ago by the ancient Babylonians and has continued, with only minor interruptions, into modern times.
Anything with a history that long and enduring clearly has deep significance for the human psyche.
Perhaps it's simply a celebration of being alive, having made it through another circle of the sun. But for many of us there is also the recognition of death and rebirth, a letting go of what has been and surrendering to what is yet to be.

Health for the New Year
By Robin Miller, MD MHS
We are starting another new year and that tends to be accompanied by those resolutions that all of us make and most of us break! I would like to propose a little different approach this year. It involves finding small ways to make a big difference. Most people break their resolutions because they are too hard to fulfill. Here are five suggestions:
Rather than focusing on weight loss, why not focus on just eating healthy and cutting out the junk. Pick one food that you tend to splurge on. For me it is French fries! Decide not to eat that food unless you are going to have a time that you cheat once a month. Instead, replace the junk food with fruit and vegetables.

How To Create Passionate Connections In Business and In Life
By Sheri McConnell
Do you feel validated? I heard Oprah once say that she thinks everyone on this earth has one basic need-to be validated. I know when I started the National Assn of Women Writers it was because I needed to find other women who loved to write and create like me.
I needed to learn with them and laugh with them because I yearned for the validation that I would receive as I in turn validated the writers too. Little did I realize at the time how many women all over the world needed their goals and dreams affirmed just as I did.

I Wanna DO-over
By Georgia Richardson, Queen Jaw Jaw
After last month's reflectiveNESS, I'm so ready. I want a "Do-Over," henceforth and forever more called a "DO." I'm tired, my body is tired, and my hair-do expired somewhere around 2003.
Why is it so hard for our hairdressers, or stylist, to be follictically correct (get it? mahahah, I'm so clever), to understand that all we want is a new or different look; preferably; one like Shania Twain's. Okay, so maybe I don't have long, flowing hair, but I do have hair. Work with me.

Caution: Do Not Make New Year's Resolutions!
By Mary Pearsall
How many times have you vowed to lose weight, get fit, exercise, or eat healthy for the New Year? It is certainly true that January 1st is the traditional time to resolve to either kick a bad habit or start a good one. However, if you have attempted this unsuccessfully in the past, the chances are this year won't be any different.
If the New Year is the traditional time of change and resolution, the holidays preceding this annual event are the catalyst that drive these good intentions.

One Thing Is Needful

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. - Luke 10:42
It snowed this evening. An entirely unexpected snow, at least for me. I have a DVR now, so I rarely watch live television. This means I miss important announcements - like the fact that a storm is headed for my town.
But in other ways, this little electronic box has been a great blessing. I no longer channel surf, looking for something worth watching. I have more time to be productive.

Based on their expertise, these are the recommendations (keep in mind that these are minimums).
