She is also the brains and talent behind a new art-focused stream on live-streaming video platform Twitch.
May is National Pet Month, which means several things. The primary goals of National Pet Month are to promote the benefits of pet ownership and to support pet adoption. Other, no less important, aims of this month are to make people aware of the mutual benefits of owning a pet, to help others understand the role of service animals, and to enlighten the general public to all of the available services professionally available in regard to pets (including pet sitters!).
A message to my readers from Sharon Christian Aderman
This is going to be a busy summer for me. In July, I will be putting our house up for sale and moving to a senior campus here in the heart of Topeka. Since my new home is now in the stage of being built, I will not be moving in until August. Before that time, I have to plan all the details of my leaving and moving. I will be taking a hiatus from writing my weekly column and begin again when life settles down. Because writing strengthens my memory, helps lower stress, and offers emotional release, I hope to continue doing what I love at a later date.
