May Health Nut of the Month:Norma Flores!Congratulations to Norma from Administration (Finance) for being nominated and selected as our Health Nut of the month for May!
Norma shared the following gratitude story after the 21 Days of Gratitude program:
"As I became more mindful of the things around me I feel as the month went on I was more and more grateful. Sometimes I think as people we are grateful for the "big" things in life; my job, my home, my car, my family. I am grateful for those things but it's the "little" things we sometimes forget about. For instance, the day we had to write about the one thing we didn't like about ourselves and be grateful for it. Wow! That was hard! But in the end I am grateful for the parts of me that may not be in great working condition because there may be someone out there who's "parts" aren't working at all. I may have pain sometimes but at least I can feel. The food. You know I might say a prayer before eating in gratitude for the meal I have been given. I really took the time to really be thankful for the food and for whomever prepared it. I feel like I am a person who is always grateful but this program helped me to be grateful in different ways."
