|Dimensions of Health & Wellness|
Each of the "slices" actually consists of two parts. I like to think of them as the "crust" and the "filling." The foundation, or the crust, is Health, and Wellness is the goodness inside.

|The Blue Day Book|
The Blue Day Book is a great little book to have around the house. It has helped me talk with my kids about thinking positive thoughts, and trying to be happy even when things aren't going the way I planned. It consists of wonderful photos of animals and the frustrating situations that they get themselves into. My sister-in-law sent it to my husband when he was having a bad week. So far, I have used it way more than he has.
