I hope everyone is staying cool this summer! I don’t know about you but I am always grateful for air conditioning!! I will confess I don’t like to sweat! I especially don’t like the stickiness of high humidity! If it’s really hot I like to stay “cool by a pool” or in the AC...Read More
Well, spring has sprung! We certainly wondered when it would after a pretty mild winter. . .so many of us holding our breath that we wouldn’t get that “last snow” of the year on Easter! lolSound crazy? I have many memories of dawning winter coats over the special Easter dresses! We were glad it wasn’t so this year and for those of us who really do like the 4 seasons, we are very aware thatwe certainly don’t know in our beautiful state of Ohio when it comes to the weather and the changing of the seasons!
It likes to keep us guessing and wondering. . .
If you are wondering what’s on the horizon at New Image I’ll let you know in a bit.
What’s on your horizon? It’s hard to believe we are heading into summer soon. . .well we think we are! There have been more then a few years that I have heard people say. . .”what happened to spring? It seems we just skipped it and landed in the summer!” lol Truly unpredictable and depending on your seasonal preference, often in our busy lives, “missed”.
This year of 2017 has brought me to another decade of “more years”. Somehow 60 seems as I put it, “serious”. lolI don’t want to say depressing or discouraging, but challenging!
Life is good and I am blessed with a great husband (although a bit wacky at times:) which keeps life interesting for sure!), a wonderful family, good friends, and awesome clients! So what’s the introspection about?
I am taking every other Monday to watch our7 mo old grandson, Finn. First off, I forgot how much energy it takes even just for 1 day! He loves attention. . .all of it! lol He’s cute as can be and I find myself wondering “will I see him graduate, get married, succeed in whatever vocation he aspires to and maybe even have kids of his own? Well certainly! I hope so!
But just like we don’t really know when summer is coming. . .I don’t really know the answers to these questions! And of course, that must be ok if I am to stay focused on life NOW and trust God to fill in the blanks according to His will. It’s an interesting spot to be in. . .parentless except for Dan’s mother and different knowing more then likely we are the next to leave this world and transition to the next! How far down the horizon is that? I wonder. . .not with dread but with curiosity. Am I anxious? No! I love this life and am grateful and yes, will continue to do whatever things in the form of treatments I can to stay as confident as possible. I started back to a gym and have joined a class to strengthen my body. . .and believe me it needs strengthened! Gone are the days when I could push and do whatever I wanted! It’s an amazing revelation. . .yes in fact I have limits.
Now, what’s on the horizon at New Image? Read on if you are so inclined.

But 2017 has something new in store for you. While we’re not ready to release all of the details yet, we can say that we’re committed to providing you with consistent opportunities to learn more about the services we offer in a comfortable, non-pressured environment so you can decide what’s best for you, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing in 2017. Keep your eyes peeled in the very near future so you don’t miss our new gatherings of 2017. And just before the rumors fly… Our words were: “We’re saying goodbye to the Annual Girl’s Night In…” ;)
We always say it–and somehow it always seems to be true... We're starting another new year! While 2016 brought our family many new joys, it also brought many new ways of adjusting. 2016 was a year of laying my amazing father to rest, welcoming our newest grandson into the family, and many other highs & lows. But I can look back in peace and say–it was still a good year!
Change is good… change is exciting… according to Dr. Madsen who I often tease that his middle name should be change! Whether it’s changing the style of medical practice as we did this last year or changing the make-up of our family (which we also experienced), we can declare it good.
One change was done intentionally by choice (changing the medical practice), and was done with great thought and consideration and planning. If you’re curious about that you can go to our Madsen Medical website here and read about it. It was challenging, not without it’s issues… but in the end, still good.
The other major change, the make-up of our family was not by our choice. The passing of a much loved and admired head of any family is never desired although we know a part of life. If we had our choice we would keep him with us much longer! In this case we choose to declare it good as we know he has entered an eternity of peace and love!
And then the addition of a grandson, yes by choice, (our son and daughter-in-law’s of course), and definitely good! This we wouldn’t change even if we could!
Change, you see, means life in one form or another.
Some is intentional and exciting and some not by our choice but never the less can be good. What change may be on your horizon in 2017? Whether it is intentional and by choice or out of your hands, let’s decide now to look forward with excitement and declare all of it–you guessed it… GOOD!
Because life is simply better when you take appreciation in everything the happens, the high AND the lows.
May your 2017 by good.
