Noble Horizons celebrates Mother's Day 

"Being a mother and grandmother has been my greatest and proudest achievement!" JoAnna from Recreation

 

"What I love about being a mother: When I became a mom I was awestruck by our capacity to love so deeply and completely and I love being a proud mom watching the lives my three boys - now kind, fun-loving men with beautiful wives and children - have created." Linda Orlowski, DIr. of Social Work.

 

"What I like most about being a mother is that my children taught me the meaning of true love, I loved them before I ever met them." Lana Knutson, Recreation Director.

 

"I loved being a mother because it gave me the opportunity to watch a small baby become a responsible, kind, gentle, steadfast, very intelligent man who is also blessed with a  wonderful sense of humor." Rosemary Farnsworth

 

"I would say that I have most enjoyed seeing that each of my children are essentially the same at age 50 as they were when they came out of the egg, that is, uniquely themselves!" Maura Wolf

 

"Part of being a mom is getting to experience on a daily basis my kids' successes, watching them grow, making my world a better place and having special moments; they are pure joy." Amy Brandt Mcenroe

 

"What I love is the feeling of pride and love I have knowing that I had a big part in helping my children become independent, caring and responsible adults with morals and family values." Linda Castaldi

 

"Children are like flowers that you watch grow and blossom. You love and guide them as they bloom into maturity. Seeing them smile, laugh, face challenges, persevere, and learn to be kind and thoughtful through all the stages of growing up was and is magical. How wonderful!" Nina Mathus

 

"It's been said that "being a mother is not what you gave up to have a child but what you've gained from having one." My children have made me a better person." Molly McLane Tanner

 

"What I love most about being a mother: The intensity of your LOVE for each child is overwhelming; while there are days you wish they lived on another planet and there are days when you hear your own words come back to you with a shock, but whether they are a day old or 64 as my eldest will be tomorrow, a big hug and kiss from them is worth all the gold in the world." Kay Carlucci.

 

"There are many things I enjoyed about being a mother but now I love seeing my daughters as mothers themselves, raising their children." Kathy Mera

There is a tendency to judge groups of people as homogeneous rather a collection of individuals.   Seniors, for example, consist of different demographics, pursue different goals, harbor different needs or concerns, and enjoy different hobbies and interests.

Have you ever bought something new, put it away for future use, and then months or even years later find it stuffed in a corner or back of a drawer – sometimes with the store tag or label still on it? You aren’t alone. We all accumulate stuff over the years – and yes, stuff we don’t even remember we have. Some items become heirlooms or even hold sentimental value that can’t be purchased like artwork created by children or grandchildren.

Starting a new exercise regimen can be tough at any age, but for an older adult it can be especially intimidating. For those who are out of shape or dealing with health conditions it can be downright scary. That’s where yoga comes in.
