How are you doing? This past year has been such a crazy time, and so many are going through so much. What are you doing to keep that smile?

I’m practicing gratitude. And it is just that — a practice.  Over the past two years, I beat cancer, lost my father unexpectedly, and most recently lost my furbaby. That’s in addition to sustaining a business — and my sanity — through a global pandemic. The strange thing is I can name 10 friends who have experienced much of the same. 

We are never alone in our struggles. And there is so much for which to be grateful. 

I am grateful for 16 endearing years with my Little Bandito. He adored me more than anyone ever will, and I miss my precious shadow. He was full of character and heart and unquestionably grateful to be ours. Don’t most rescue pups seem that way?

I am grateful that my mother made it through COVID unscathed and all in our family still have good health.

I am very grateful that Desert Health is still here. While many local publications have stopped printing, our health and wellness community has continued to support our work and to share valuable information to keep us all moving forward with vitality, strength and hope.

In the centerfold of our printed copy, you will find words of wisdom from a few of our contributing doctors and wellness practitioners, along with over $2,500 in exclusive offers for your wellness journey. We encourage you to take advantage of these great deals and to try something new for yourself. So pick up your copy today, and while you’re there, please thank them for supporting Desert Health.

Most importantly, I am grateful for you. Thank YOU for reading, supporting our advertisers, and interacting with us on our website and social media. We are here to answer your questions and to help as we can.

We hope you enjoy this inspiring issue and can’t wait to see you out and about again soon!

Here’s to your health ~
