Hey, everyone - it's Five Minute Friday again, as sponsored by Lisa-Jo, and today's word is:
When I hear that word, the first thing I think of is the American Heart Association's "Wear Red for Your Heart Day," a day set aside to bring awareness the heart disease in women. I have some experience with this - 15 years ago, I had my first experience with tachycardia. I thought I was having a heart attack (at 40!), but it turned out to be a much more benign thing.
BUT, my mother-in-law did have a heart attack around the age of 40. While it didn't kill her, it did enough damage to make her "frail" for the rest of her life. Not the way I want to live - I want to be much more "robust" than frail. You know, water skiing at 75, pillow fights, making things blow up in the kitchen (dinner's ready!).
All this to say, take care of your heart, and your heart will take care of you. We'd like to have you around for a L*O*N*G time.
Time's up! Have a great weekend!
