Praying for Japan

This is a column I wrote for The Barrow Journal. As a former JET participant, I feel a little like the earthquake and tsunami hit my home - or one of them. Thankfully no one I know was hurt in the disaster, but there were wonderful people affected by it just like the ones I knew and loved.

Take Good Care of Your Feet, Especially When You’re a Mama

This is the column that I wrote for the Barrow Journal this week. I had a bad couple of weeks recently when I hurt my foot and caught a nasty cold at the same time. When you have two active, little boys, this is miserable. I was laughing and crying at the same time, and I was so grateful that I knew I would get through it somehow. When I felt a little better, all I could think to write about, of course, was feet. I found out some interesting facts too.
