posted on
Whenever I return from an AAHAM board meeting; I reflect on the many inspiring people who serve as our executive committee, committee chairs and chapter presidents. Their countless hours of volunteering is simply quite remarkable. They balance their AAHAM commitment with career demands, families and their personal life.

 Now as we get ready for the holidays and gear up for the “shop till you drop” and “party like its 1999” season, I think it’s important to take a moment to remember what this time of the year is really about, the gifts you already have and the gifts you can share.Our AAHAM members give very generously of their time and this is a tremendous gift. This seems to instill a tremendous sense of joy, purpose and perspective. I am very grateful for what our AAHAM membe...

I keep a daily "gratitude journal".  Every night before I go to sleep, I write down 3 things I'm grateful for...and I have so much to be grateful for.  Some are little things, like a good cup of coffee or finding a great pair of jeans that fit.  Some are more in the moment like a beautiful fall day, a peaceful walk with my dogs, a good night's sleep.  Some are more profound like gratitude that my 86 year old mom is healthy, having a career I love, caring friends.   In Me...

What shouldn’t I miss during my down time while I’m in San Diego? Definitely the zoo and SeaWorld and my favorite, the Wild Animal Park, where the animals run free.  Visit Balboa Park and consider renting a bike in Pacific Beach and touring the loop around Mission Beach and Mission Bay.   Don’t miss the cute shops and fun restaurants at nearby Seaport Village.  Take the ferry to Coronado Island and have a drink at the famous Hotel Del Coronado.  Th...

With our upcoming ANI in San Diego this year, I thought you may enjoy some interesting trivia and lesser known facts about the city where we are meeting. Also, if you are staying an extra day or two, some of these may be worth exploring.  Did you know that President Ronald Reagan was the first person to drive over the San Diego-Coronado Bridge in 1969? This is the two mile long bridge locals call “Coronado Bridge” but the official name is San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge. It c...
