Celebrating National Family Caregivers Month

In 1994, the National Family Caregivers Association began promoting the celebration of family caregivers during the week of Thanksgiving. President Clinton signed the first presidential proclamation in 1997 and every president since – Democrat and Republican alike – has issued an annual proclamation appreciating family caregivers. As interest grew in family caregiving issues, National Family Caregivers Week became National Family Caregivers Month.

Day in and day out, more than 65 million family caregivers in this country fulfill a vital role on the care team. No one else is in a better position to ensure continuity of care. Family caregivers are the most familiar with their care recipients’ medicine regimen; they are the most knowledgeable about the treatment regimen; and they understand best the dietary and exercise regimen.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for November 22, 2012-A Word Of Thanksgiving (Vol.11, Iss.3)

A WORD OF THANKSGIVING

 

Today is the National Day of Thanksgiving here in the United States. All over the country people cooked, cleaned and connected over meals that covered tables and filled empty stomachs. Gathering of family, friends and folks took place  all in the name of Thanksgiving.

I like so many was blessed to be able to travel and join my family for all the fun, food, and fellowship associated with Thanksgiving. I visited with two different family members homes and it was great just to all be together. The food was incredible: Cornish Hens, turkey, ham, dressing, turnip greens, mac n’ cheese, fried and barbaque chicken, chitterlings, string beans, mixed peas, potato salad, corn pudding, apple cobbler, carrot cake, sweet potato pie,  and red velvet cake.

We laugh and love so much, it was a joy. We watched Football games, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (a classic) and then 25th Anniversary for Micheal Jackson‘s BAD. What a great day for offering a word of Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful and grateful for, I just cannot tell it all. 

I would also like to take this time to offer a word of Thanksgiving for all of the people who have supported YoTrip-Words and Thoughts/Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip/Thursday Thinking by YoTrip as I seek to leave my footprints on the world.

Let us all continue in the spirit of Thanksgiving for this day and beyond!

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for November 20, 2012-National Adoption Month (Vol.11, Iss.3)

November is National Adoption Month and it is such a selfless act to open your heart, your home, and your head to another person. The love, support, joy and completeness that families give to children by bringing them into their families is a beautiful thing. I salute the countless numbers of people who adopted and understand the power making the difference in the life of others. 

 

History of National Adoption Month

 

National Adoption Month has been celebrated for 17 years. Explore the history of National Adoption Month in this section.

 

Early days

 

 

Efforts to use the Internet—and social media—in adoption recruitment and retention continue today.

 

Celebrating National Adoption Month

 

Every November, a Presidential Proclamation launches activities and celebrations to help build awareness of adoption throughout the nation. Thousands of community organizations arrange and host programs, events, and activities to share positive adoption stories, challenge the myths, and draw attention to the thousands of children in foster care who are waiting for permanent families. http://www.childwelfare.gov/adoption/nam/about/history.cfm

 

Keep the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 11/15/12 Write On, Alreday…National Novel Writing Month (Vol.11, Iss.3)


240/365 National Novel Writing Month begins

Write On, Already… National Novel Writing Month

Since 1999 a challenge has been set for those who care to participate and attempt to write a novel during the month of November. It is called the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) event. It is a great  time to put your skills to the test and see if you can produce a novel. 

If you have an interest and want to participate you still have 15 days to get that novel written. If it sounds like a tall order for you there are online as well as local support in many cities and states to help keep you encouraged. 

I salute and honor any one who has joined the challenge and stayed the course, even if they did not write 50,000 words. 

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.

As you spend November writing, you can draw comfort from the fact that, all around the world, other National Novel Writing Month participants are going through the same joys and sorrows of producing the Great Frantic Novel. Wrimos meet throughout the month to offer encouragement, commiseration, and—when the thing is done—the kind of raucous celebrations that tend to frighten animals and small children.

Annual participant/winner totals 1999: 21 participants and six winners

2000: 140 participants and 29 winners

2001: 5000 participants and more than 700 winners

2002: 13,500 participants and around 2,100 winners

2003: 25,500 participants and about 3,500 winners

2004: 42,000 participants and just shy of 6,000 winners

2005: 59,000 participants and 9,769 winners

2006: 79,813 participants and 12,948 winners

2007: 101,510 participants and 15,333 winners

2008: 119,301participants and 21,683 winners

2009: 167,150 participants and 32,178 winners

2010: 200,500 participants and 37,500 winners

2011: 256,618 participants and 36,843 winners

Keep writing and reaching for your goal of 50, 000 words! You can do this!

Keep the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers.

The Air We Breathe

 

November is National COPD Awareness Month and we should not take the air we breathe for granted.Our lifeline is tied directly to the air we breathe,

 

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a serious lung disease which makes it hard to breathe. Also known by other names, such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, COPD is now the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States and also causes long-term disability.

The number of people who have COPD is on the rise — more than 12 million are currently diagnosed with it. And it is estimated that another 12 million may have COPD but not realize it.

If you or someone you know has symptoms such as chronic coughing, shortness of breath or wheezing, see your doctor or health care provider for a simple breathing test. By taking steps now, and talking with your doctor or health care provider about treatment options, you can breathe better and enjoy a more active life.

 

Did You Know?

  • COPD is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States and causes serious, long-term disability
  • COPD kills more than 120,000 Americans each year. That’s one death every 4 minutes
  • More than 12 million people are diagnosed with COPD
  • An additional 12 million likely have COPD and don’t even know it http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/lung/copd/index.htm

 

 

Keep the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 11/8/12-Happy Pink November (Vol. 11, Iss.2)


image

Today I was delighted like a kid in the candy store when I turned the corner and came upon this uniquely decorated tree in celebration of breast cancer at Women’s Center for Radiology. The tree was the perfect companion for the women who enter the first waiting room in preparation for going back for their mammogram. One by one as the ladies rounded the corner I saw the light dance in their eyes and a sense of calm entered the room.

So often it is the little things that stop us for a moment to pause and give a silent shout of thanksgiving. Everyday is a day worthy of giving thanks, for Happy Pink November. Keep educating, encouraging, and empowering other with breast cancer awareness.

Congratulations to President Barack Obama on winning the 2012 Presidential Election. Four more years! Let’s unify as a nation.

Keep the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers.
