I cannot actually remember if I have ever written a response to the editor before but your triggered something in me and I was seeing me right in this article. I an an oncology nurse of many years providing loving care and comfort to my wonderful patients throughout their journeys but.......I have challenges, and driving a distance all by myself was something that I conquered recently and thats why your letter was so great. When my husband and I visit our grandchildren out of town of course he did all the driving while I kept him company chatting, and knitting, (I have to be accomplishing something while sitting for the 4 hour drive from Baltimore to New York) but last year our children moved to Philly which is only 2 hours away. Less knitting accomplished but so happy to have them closer. I challenged myself to drive there by myself on one of my days off from work, especially when they invited us to do something special and my husband was out of town for business. I programmed my GPS (I call her my Girl Power.......System) and listened carefully and did it alllllllllllllllllll by myself. Many of my friends understood my anxiety and were soooooo very proud of me. I even went back for a grandparents program a few weeks later all by myself. I felt so empowered so I loved your article. (I am not ready to fly, rent a car and travel by myself but who knows..
I love your magazine and have been reading it and given it as gifts.
Thanks so much!
Sitting here reading your latest article in More magazine (First Lady Obama cover) and I immediately think of my hubby & mommy both of whom are "directionally challenged." The first is still in denial--men! There is an awesome app (actually several) for that!
I love RoadMate by Magellan. It was pricey but unlike some of the others it was a one-time cost. It has taken me all over as I have taken it all over!
I have it on my iPhone and iPad (1st generation). You get to chose voices too--neat! She/he will even tell you when you're over the speed limit. Not that I have been.
Just thought I'd share. It was my first time purchasing the magazine. I'm enjoying it! Great cover model!
Thank you so much for the beautiful article about Michelle Obama! I am inspired by her affirmation of young women, her healthy goals for all of our young people, her sense of self and family, and her incredible style. She's the kind of first lady I can admire and would honestly love to sit down and have tea with.
Thanks so much!
I love getting new issues every month and was so excited when I saw the February cover "Your Best Haircut at 30, 40, 50, 60".
As a woman who has been declared "least changed" from several high school reunions, I have tried in vain to modify my locks for years.
Here's my beef- there was only ONE short cut for a woman (of any age) with curly/wavy hair. Every other cut featured women with long flowing locks or straight as a pin hair.
Am I sentenced to a life of "mom hair" as I pass from my 40's into my 50's? Please say no!
There's got to be more woman like me (small framed with thick Italian hair) out there, right?
Thanks for letting me vent! I enjoyed the rest of the issue, was just disappointed in your latest beauty/hair advice.
I haven't done more than look at the cover of this month's More, but I am so excited to see Michelle Obama on the cover! Not only is she an admirable voice for the children of this country, but she is also a beautiful example of what a More woman looks like.
Thanks for supporting our First Lady!
I notice you used [ballsy] in your February letter from the editor. Personally, I prefer a reference to brass ovaries.
