Gratitude, Inspiration, & Giving

When you think of November, what do YOU think about?

I think about those I have lost in past Novembers.  Close family members, friends, and falling leaves.  Then I think of how grateful I am to have those who are here, and that those leaves shared their colors with us.

This November I am also immersed in inspiration from things around me:  leaves, people, flavors, patterns, and relationships.

Then I think of what am I giving them?  Not just “physical” giving, but “mentor type” giving, “thought type” giving, and “being there” type giving.

Who are you grateful for?  How do they inspire you?  and What are you giving others?

Please respond on social media.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.  Use hashtag #jamsbymfsNov2014‬! so I know you read my newsletter!

You never know, there might be more giving!  Like these links for the “giving” I am currently doing:

Take a break today, remember those who have gone on, be inspired by what is around you, and give those who are here something of yourself…

Guest Moderating on #hcsmca!!!

by Stacy Braiuca, MSW, MPH

KANSAS CITY, MO– I am excited but nervous at the same time! I accepted a spot guest moderating one of the tweet chats I have “lurked” and semi-participated in hosted by the lovely and brilliant Colleen Young, Health Care and Social Media Canada.


hcsmca guest moderatorBeing Potawatomi, health has no borders for me, I have “cousins” in Canada, as well as other parts of this planet and frankly, we all need to be healthy for each other.  Inspired by a recent post on Wellbound Storytellers about being healthy “for the people” is part of what I finally chose to talk about in my guest mod position.

Why don’t you come over and join us at http://www.tweetchat.com/room/hcsmca tomorrow night?  I’d love to interact with as many of you as possible, before, during, and after the chat!

Me, CRAVE veggies? Never….. or maybe???

by Stacy Braiuca, Social Media Specialist


Amazing “disappearing”

KANSAS CITY, MO– It’s summer and Mother Earth is graciously giving us her bounty.  Colorful fruits and vegetables are everywhere.  She doesn’t even charge us extra for the yummy smells of peaches, watermelon, or apricots!  You would think with this bombardment of our senses, I would LOVE fresh fruits and veggies and eat them above all else, right?  No, not always.  But this summer, has been different.

I joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Cooperative at work this season.  It is a program that offers a bag of fresh groceries every week for “subscribers”, delivered to work!

To “subscribe” for your “share” (each bag is called a share), you have to agree to participate for the whole session.  Our session is May 29th until the end of September.  You also agree to pay for that season up front.  Our fees are around $500 for the whole session.  That may seem high on the outset, but it is about $25/week and you get AT LEAST $25-30 worth of groceries every week.  Don’t forget that DELIVERED part.  I don’t even have to stop at the store on the way home.

Week 1 Goodies
Including a cookbook!

So, within the first 2 weeks I was eating more veggies already,  even though I’m splitting my “share” with my mom and brother.  We each get to split yummy uber fresh fruits, veggies, cheese, milk, bread, and meat to supplement our own groceries. Week one had:

What was I going to do with those tomatoes? Several years ago, I had really bad acid problems, to the extent that I couldn’t even drink iced tea!  It was horrible.  I finally went to the doctor and have stabilized that with medication for the last few years.  However, before that, I had basically stopped eating tomatoes in anything:  no red sauce on burritos, little to no sauce on pizza, limited spaghetti sauce (even though my hubby makes it super yum!).  I now have a totally irrational “fear” of tomatoes…
