Is Sleep Impossible for Those over 50?

I was happy to read that June is National Appreciation month. An entire month for us to contemplate all that there is to appreciate in our lives. What’s at the top of YOUR list? There is so much to be grateful for that I feel I could fill an entire notebook! Here’s my gratitude “shout…

National Gratitude Month – I am grateful for… a scratchy throat?! (NOT)
