It's been a while since I sent a newsletter. In the past month we have gone from quietly retired to busy community members, LOL. We began volunteering at the local senior center, have a quilting class and a study circle in our home weekly, and devotions on Sunday evenings here. In between there are new friends, a Spanish language class (at my son's home) and computer animation class (in the back room while the quilting goes on in the front room). All this activity is cutting into my nap time! It is fun, but I'm having to learn scheduling again....please bear with me.
The latest articles from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com:
*How to Make a True Friend
Finding new friends, building new relationships, is important for continuing health and happiness. Here are some ways to do it.
*Bahá'í Law on Adultery
Adultery may be an old fashioned idea, but it is still unhealthy for individuals, family & society.
*Hear the Women Roar
Older women are becoming a huge portion of society, and we can move the world.
*Bahá'í Law on Gambling
Gambling is forbidden to Bahá'ís, especially when used for fund raising. Perhaps it isn't the activity so much as the underlying motivation to seek one's fortune in games of chance, that isn't good for us.
Please visit bahai.bellaonline.com regularly, especially until I settle into a new routine that allows weekly newsletters to keep you informed of new postings.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback even though I might be a bit slow in responding sometimes!
