I'm so lucky and grateful to have many wonderful people in my life! All week long, I've been celebrating a major milestone of my life: TURNING 50!

My class members surprised me with lots of birthday merriment on my actual birthday. They wanted me to feel special for joining their elite club (I do!), and what fun it all was and still is. I had "Happy Birthday" sung to me so many times that I lost count.

When the qi flows freely in a balanced fashion, health is restored, and disease prevented.
