I heart my chiropractor!

Chiropractor Pictures, Images and Photos

Ok, so for those of you who have never been to a chiropractor, it is a must. I went for the first time in January after I fell outside at work. A coworker mentioned that I should go. So I took her up on her offer. All I can say is R-E-L-I-E-F!

I thought chiropractors were just for back pain. They are soo much more. They can alleviate back pain, shoulder and neck pain, tight muscles, headaches, sore arms and legs, bad hips, sinus pressure and pain, plus so much more. I even slept better after a few visits.

I had a really bad migraine headache last weekend and then was having a stiff neck and back and dull headaches all week long. I dropped by to see him today and after a quick 5 minute adjustment. I felt so much better. Plus my sinus pressure and drainage was gone, just like that.

If you don't have one, get one! You won't be sorry!


A friend of mine recently sent me this in an email. I loved it and thought I would share it.

Recently I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, 'I love you, and I wish you enough.' The daughter replied, 'Dad, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.' They kissed and the daughter left.

The Father walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, 'Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?' 'Yes, I have,' I replied. 'Forgive me for asking, but why is this a for ever good-bye?'. 'I am old, and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip back will be for my funeral,' he said.

'When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that means?'He began to smile. 'That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone..' He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he smiled even more.

'When we said, 'I wish you enough,' we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.' Then turning toward me, he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

He then began to cry and walked away. They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.
