While eating lunch and channel surfing, not long ago, I stumbled upon a talk show and was immediately hooked. The host, Mel Robbins, is a life coach.  After watching the show, I jumped on Amazon.com to find her book, The 5 Second Rule. Purchased it and when it arrived, read it in one evening. It’s been about a month now since I finished the back, and what a life-changing experience it has been. So that being said, if you find yourself in a rut in any aspect of your life and you’re tired of being in said rut, give this book a read.  You won’t be disappointed!!!!

One of my New Year’s resolution is to stop drinking soda pop.I have been drinking soda pop soda for many, many years. And, not the sugar free variety!! LOL. Wanting to change my life and attempt to get away from the sugary drink addiction and improve my overall appearance and health, I have replaced it with Sparkling Ice+Caffeine (Black Raspberry). It is a bit pricy, but for me the sacrifice of something else to get this product has been beneficial.  At this writing I have almost beaten this addiction and already feel better physically and have more energy.

The Hensel House — Prologue



My name is Mary Frances Hensel and I was born in 1838, in the town of Meadville, Pennsylvania, located in Crawford County. I’ve lived in Meadville all my life.  My beloved husband of eighteen years, Harry, died   on October 14th as a result of an industrial accident while working at the railroad roundhouse in Ashtabula, Ohio, some thirty miles away. Harry and I have two children. Our daughter Etta is 18 years old with an infant daughter and our son Harry Jr. is 14 years old. If you asked my children how they would describe me, they would be quick to tell you that I’m a fearless trailblazer. And they would be exactly right. This is my story.

On the way home from visiting my husband’s grave today, I stopped at the post office to mail a stack of thank you notes for the many messages of condolence and the meals that were prepared for us since the funeral. On my way out of the post office, the clerk called out to me.

“Mrs. Hensel, I’m glad you came in today. A special delivery letter came for you.”

I returned to the counter. “Special delivery, you say? Thank you so much.”
