I can't believe November 1st is already here. October went by in such a blur! We have many exciting things going on this month from Thanksgiving (my favorite meal of the year) to diabetes awareness events. Try to take time slow down and enjoy this moment with your friends an family. Easier said than done I know, but take some time, sit back and make a list on paper of the wonderful things in your life that you are thankful for. There was a quote I came across recently that really stuck. "Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have you'll never have enough." -Oprah. Each podiatry office we have is also focusing on giving back to those in need before the cold weather really hits. We have partnered with Soles4soules an organization that donates shoes to people around the world in need. If you have time after work or on the weekend, go through your closet purge a few items you haven't wore in the last month and donate them to charity or one of the various donation drives happening around the South Sound. Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoy our practice updates for November! I even included pictures of our fun costume contest with Tumwater Family Practice Clinic and of our FASA Halloween kids too. Be sure to check it out!
