Haiku for Mother’s Day

Love, strength, kindness, home…
Pithy words cannot convey
what “Mom” means to me.

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms past, present and future.

So it’s good for my health to write blog posts!

Writing your way to happiness, Tara Parker-Pope [New York Times article]

The scientific research on the benefits of so-called expressive writing is surprisingly vast. Studies have shown that writing about oneself and personal experiences can improve mood disorders, help reduce symptoms among cancer patients, improve a person’s health after a heart attack, reduce doctor visits and even boost memory.

Now researchers are studying whether the power of writing — and then rewriting — your personal story can lead to behavioral changes and improve happiness.

I guess I should keep doing this writing thing then…for the good of my health. =)
