Our Past Weekend…Why We “Relay”?

A Shout-out to all the students at Virginia Tech who organized and participated in this year’s Relay For Life, 2018! Each year they do an amazing job~~Including a wonderful Survivor’s Banquet honoring cancer Survivors and their Caregivers.

Family & Human Development Resources…

Mountain RhododendrenIndividual & Family Resources is a new addition to the Family/Human Development page on my website. This listing will continue to grow as I share resources with information on topics that may be of interest to individuals and families. One section is Health & Families, which now includes The Cancer Experience...

Also, new to the website is a¬†Links¬†page. The two main areas of these links will be related to¬†Human Development/Family¬†and¬†to Art & Artists. I invite you to check out these new additions–I hope they are of some help to you!

In the art of life, the daily challenges I know can really tax my abilities at times…Gaining needed knowledge and learning new skills can help to encourage us and enhance our experiences.
