Throughout my childhood every December my Mom donned her Christmas apron, pulled out her special sugar cookie recipe from her files, and began the baking process. The carefully prepared dough required sufficient chilling so I, along with my best friend Bobby and my siblings, could successfully roll it out on the old oak table and cut the dough into various Christmas shapes. Once cut and placed on trays, we decorated the cookies with colored sugar, tiny chocolate morsels, cinnamon balls, and a lot of laughter and love before placing them in the oven. The rich aroma of almond, vanilla and cinnamon flooded our home all day as those tasty cookies baked. We anticipated this day every December and relished tasting pieces of dough as well as enjoying a few cookies when they were done. To this day I still gravitate toward those smells because they evoke strong memories of warmth, friendship, family and love. In short, they give me all the feels.

Think for a minute about your favorite handyman who knows just how to fix problems in your home. He probably wears a tool belt and has a truckload of essential tools. Once he assesses what your job needs, he knows exactly what tools he needs to get the job done right. Every good carpenter carries multiple tools, but his training is what enables him to do the job right. In a similar way, to be effective and even exceptional in caring for our own health, we not only need the right “tools” on hand, but we also need to educate ourselves on how to use them effectively, especially if we know our health has been compromised.
A “first line of defense” tool everyone should have in his or her home is a nebulizer.

First and foremost, contrary to what the media would have us believe, realize YOU ARE NOT HELPLESS!
In 1907, Baden-Powell, founder of Boy Scouts of America wrote their famous simple motto: “Be prepared.” Upon hearing the Scout motto, someone asked the follow up question, “Prepared for what?” Baden-Powell’s simple reply: “Why, for any old thing.” Good advice.
