Fishing Lures

We just finished HABIT in Jacksonville, and a participant allowed me to post a wonderful message he and his wife wrote to us in a thank you card.

Dear Drs. Chandler, Oskarsson, Tran, and Michelle, Miranda, and Carolyne:

Imagine an entire team of compassionate professionals focused on helping our loved ones live their best lives. Over the last 10 days, these dedicated super stars taught us "how to fish" so we could actually take the steps, make the commitment and start down the path to live our best lives. 

Thank you for all you have taught us and for showing us this path.

We admire you and will always appreciate how you have made a differences in our lives.

With much gratitude,

Linda & Marc

Linda & Marc -

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives and journey! Facilitating HABIT truly allows us to get a sense of purpose and fulfillment in our lives. For that, we thank you, and all our HABIT Alumni.

Thanks again for your comments. The way I read their wording, I thought they were talking about couples – in the narrow sense or just one sense of the word!

You know what @barbb – you have done a great service already for the HABIT program. If you read it to mean that only "couples" were welcome, I bet others did too. So that shows our directors and administrators that maybe we need to change the wording to be more expansive and inclusive. I hope you can find a way to come to HABIT. If you live in NY, a couple of weeks in FL during the winter might be just perfect! You could contact @drmelaniechandler to get on the waiting list for the next Jacksonville, FL program if you think you could be able to work it out.
