Publisher’s Note


1st Quarter 2017

It is hard to believe that another year has come and gone, and that we are now beginning 2017. Each year I always tell myself that this is going to be the best year yet, and 2016 was a very good year for my family and for my business. Each morning I awake and thank God for my wonderful blessed life that I am allowed to have, because whether you believe in God or not, you have to admit that if you have your health, and you have a good life, you are blessed.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday, and that you are ready to start your New Year off with a positive attitude. Whether you were happy with the outcome of the 2016 election or not, may we all pull together to take our country beyond the conflicts that we have seen over the last several months concerning politics. There is nothing that we can’t overcome in life, if we work hard enough.

The Women’s Journal is distributed free of charge, sponsored by our contributors, and is available in medical buildings, hospitals, doctors’ offices, recreation centers, libraries, bookstores, coffee shops, hair salons, supermarkets, and many other local businesses. Can’t put your hands on a copy? Just call us so we can help!
