Happy Mother’s Day to all!
As I get older, I am reminded of a saying that my mom and grandmother often said, “Health is Wealth”.
When I was younger, I really do not think that I totally understood what they were saying. Now, with three children, a husband, and my two parents here to help me every day, it starts to make most sense.
About a month ago, I attended the Hyundai Hope on Wheels event to spread awareness for #Endchildhoodcancer. This saying went through my mind often throughout the luncheon.
Then, the other day, I met a mom-to-be who was struggling with some complications. The best I could do was to tell her to take care of herself and not for one second worry about me. There are times in life when you need to offer others compassion and at that moment, once again, Health is Wealth came to mind.
I think this quote is something that I need to focus on too. I was on such a roll with making better health choices for myself, that I think it is time to recommit for myself and my family to better choices such as drinking water, exercising and eating better.
On this Mother’s Day, I wish all of you good health for you and your family. After all, health is wealth.
