Linda Elsea It seems we are always trying to fi nd the

perfect fi t for exercise in our lives. What fi ts my energy levels today? What fi ts my pocket book this week? What fi ts my time schedule this month? If all we are looking for with exercise is the perfect fi t for the day, you can bet the effort you put into it will stall on a very superfi cial plateau. There is no perfect fi t. It is only by confronting the reality of necessity that we discover the motivation for the actual task. It’s amazing how motivated I can

become in my diet when I see the reality of

the bathroom scales starting to climb.

p.m. The speaker will be Jacque Zoccole and the topic is “Turning Business Cards Around” to show different ways to work as a team and create them with other people. Everyone is welcome! Contact Rose at 480-802-0775. 

Without confronting reality, consequences can get out of hand fairly quickly. When the reality of rheumatoid arthritis starts pushing me around I start looking for any little thing that will help me mentally or physically to start pushing back. Sometimes it’s as simple as wearing my wrist brace to be able to continue with my daily chores. If I’m too tired to do any physical exertion,

I fi nd contentment with easy, lazy stretches across the barrel, or just lying down and letting my legs swing back and forth in the leg springs Exercise doesn’t have to be a

heart pounding, muscle pumping, give-it- all-you-got effort to be effective, especially at this age. Easy, gentle fl owing movement for 20-30 minutes can make us feel like we are “still able.” Struggle is no stranger

to us at this

stage of life. In many cases, direction and enthusiasm for any physical exertion have lost the glow it had when we were younger. But I still believe that doing whatever we can do, no matter how small, enables us to look beyond our physical circumstances and look instead at the purpose and potential of our lives. Strength is not automatic of course. is a must or all will

Movement rust. So pick something that will

surely stretch

you, challenge you, and move you out of complacency and isolation. Stop chasing happiness. It’s like looking for the perfect exercise. Look instead for the joy in small victories, the joy in helping others, the joy in moving for movement’s sake. The consequences of that attitude are worth the effort at any age. Pilates equipment lessons for Sun

Lakes residents are available. Call 480-721-0493. 

“Heart to Heirloom, a Wedding Dance” by Steffi Jo Kern.

Toni Bolling Lutter Once again, Gila Butte DAR has

produced national winners in the annual American Heritage contest sponsored by National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR). First place in Mixed Media-Collage was awarded to Steffi Jo Kern for “Heart

to Heirloom, a Wedding

Dance.” Ms. Kern molded sections of her silk eyelet wedding gown into a series of wall sculptures as remembrances for her family. In a repeat performance,

Joan Johnson

took second place nationally for her oil painting “The Heart of Hope,” which she painted as a gift for her daughter. Mrs. Johnson was also a national winner last year. DAR’s American Heritage Committee

was founded to preserve our rich American heritage in the arts. Each year, Daughters from around the world submit their plastic and painted arts and crafts, their literary efforts and their music compositions for judging. The theme for 2013-14 is “Honoring Our Heritage: Art Through the Ages.” Members of Gila Butte DAR offer a wide

variety of talent and knowledge in their service to their country. Women from all walks of life are valued for everything from artistic ability to educational commitment to patriotic service. DAR is a national women’s service

organization open to all women over 18 who are descended from a patriot who helped establish our freedom in the American Revolution. “Patriot” includes not only military, but those who served in civilian government or who took an oath of allegiance to those governments. Gila Butte Chapter encourages every eligible woman to call 883-3003 or go to gilabutte. for membership information and assistance. 
