On Our Cover New Pony Club In Penobsquis Story on Page 8

My Husband and I had a lovely Sunday afternoon, I went shopping while he puttered away at his shop. Arriving home for supper I was absolutely dismayed when Kevin discovered a puddle in the middle of our kitchen floor. I immediately began wondering how I would convince Kevin that it wasn't necessary to re-home my incredibly difficult cat, now that she had decided to use our floor as her litter box. Then a drip from our ceiling vent landed in the puddle and that created a whole new concern. We investigated, thought we solved the issue, cleaned up and settled in for supper. A few minutes later and I realized my Sunday evening had been completely high-jacked as the vent had started dripping again. Then the drip began increasing in intensity and, thanks to our vaulted ceiling, the water was trickling across the ceiling towards the cupboards. My father-in-law was driving in from Pearsonville to have a look, and Kevin left to find a ladder, leaving me alone with the drip. So there I was standing in the middle of the kitchen holding my swiffer dust mop wrapped in paper towel up to the ceiling to soak up the drip, as the bucket system was no longer working, when one of our friends arrived. Talk about being happy to see someone! Kevin had sent him a text when the drip first appeared asking for suggestions and Brent came over to check things out. I learned more about air circulation in the next half-hour than I ever thought I would need to know, but we still weren't certain what exactly was going on. When Kevin and his Dad

arrived, Brent was elbow deep in our ceiling, soaking up the water pooling in the vent pipe. It was decided that a more thorough investigation was necessary so I spent the next two and a half hours tucked up in bed, out of the way, while the men climbed up and down the ladder, sticking their arms in various vents trying to discover the problem. When it became clear that we needed to wait for daylight, I was left with a bucket sitting on my step stool, which in turn was sitting on a towel in the middle of my kitchen floor. The bucket was collecting water that was slowly dripping from a piece of bendable pipe sticking out of my ceiling. Brent came back on Monday to have another look and, thank heavens, determined there was an ice build up on the roof which has since been fixed. The pipe and bucket need to remain while we wait for the water to dry up, which to a neat freak like me is really hard to look at, but I can't complain because, hey... my cat gets to stay. I'm not sure that Kevin will agree with my assessment given his dislike of the cats but I'll take it as a win. 0001

WELL REsTED PREGNANCY AND SNORING: A CAUSE FOR CONCERN

excessive weight while pregnant. The extra weight around your neck can cause your throat to close off during sleep. Those with gestational diabetes or high blood pressure are at higher risk as are those with allergies and nasal congestion commonly caused by higher estrogen levels of pregnancy. OSA causes lowered oxygen levels and increased inflammatory processes during sleep. The associated risks of having untreated OSA during pregnancy include gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. These conditions are very dangerous for mum and baby. Mums with sleep apnea are three times more likely to have a caesarean section, have smaller babies that are more likely to be admitted to the Neonatal ICU for breathing problems. You most likely will not notice that you are stopping breathing at night, but your bed partner will notice increased snoring and even cessations in breathing at times. You may feel more tired during the day and even doze off at times. If you think you have sleep apnea,

Pregnancy is such an exciting time. The marvelous changes to your body, the preparations for your home and hopes for the future are all highlights of that time. Some aspects of pregnancy are not so pleasant, such as heartburn, extra weight gain and sleep disturbances. Getting comfortable during sleep can be near impossible when you are pregnant. Your larger belly can be difficult to position. Another common and dangerous condition is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is a common breathing disorder marked by heavy snoring, pauses in breathing, gasping for air and daytime sleepiness. Other factors in OSA include morning headaches, a large neck, being overweight and high blood pressure. Pregnant women at risk for developing OSA are those who are already overweight or obese, or who have gained

or having started snoring since being pregnant and especially if you have high blood pressure, discuss this with your doctor. You should be tested. This can be done in the sleep lab, or done in your home with a simple device. Sleep apnea can be treated very effectively to keep you breathing through the night for you and your baby. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard of treatment. You wear a little mask over your nose and it blows fresh air in while you sleep to keep your throat opened. Be sure to get this looked after as soon as you suspect there may be a problem. You want your pregnancy to be a joyous and healthy as it possibly can be for you and your baby. 0038 Angie Cummings, BSc RRT, Sussex Sleep Clinic

HAMPTON-PIGGS PEAK NEWS

Peak Central High School students writing letters

We have received a number letters from the students we are supporting in Piggs Peak. I thought I would share some of their words “I am a 14 year old girl whose father died last year. My life is difficult since my father died because my mother is unemployed. I was to drop out of school due to lack of money but because of your help, I am proud to be at school. I would like to thank you that you give to Swazis even though it is distant from your home country Canada. Because of your help, I rejoice

and wish you all the best.” “I want to thank you for paying school fees for me. I want to grow up to motivate young people to work hard at school, despite the challenges they face. It is a wonderful blessing to be in a relationship with you even though you are far away. I feel blessed to have you. When I grow up I also want to give back to society like you did to me and the other students at Peak Central High School.” “Since I started high school the sponsorship has been there for me and I appreciate that. I am eager to be part of the sponsorship when I am old enough and financially able to do the same thing for other vulnerable children.” “Thanks a lot for all you have offered to me and all that you are still doing for me. You saved my life. In times of hardship when nobody was there, no willing people to pay my school fees, where I almost gave up hope, you warmly picked me up and opened your wide warm hands for me. I love you and wish you all the best.”

“I write this letter to once again thank all the people of Hampton for helping me with my school fees. You kind people have been sunshine on a cold day. Ever since I received your financial help I have been able to apply more hard work to my school work because I believe you chose me and put me in your hearts because you saw something great in me. Once I am done in school I assure you that I will give back to you.” “I thank you, Hampton, for the help you offered to me as I was struggling to pay school fees. You became the saviour of my future. May God bless you and continue helping others who are needy like me.” If you are interested in supporting the work we do or just want some information, contact me, Mark Bettle, at markbettle1@gmail.com or 8320003.

Living Well

Aging Well weight and survived two abusive relationships, both mentally & physically. I hit rock bottom a few years ago and because of it had to declare bankruptcy, fell into a depression, and have a form of high functional anxiety, which makes it hard to leave the house some days. Despite all that which could very well have caused me give up hope and trust, there were days I had given up hope, I have always felt deep down that I had something to share with this world.

conversation growing up. People would tell me I was too skinny or felt the need to make a point of it when I did gain weight. I grew up in a house where my Mom was always on a different diet and never happy with her own body. So, I become very self-conscious about my body at a young age.

After university and into my 20s I gained weight because I was always the “skinny” kid so I never had to think about food, I just ate. Then I started drinking more & more So today I wanted to share a to fit in and was trying a little too piece of my story of how through hard to be one of the “cool” kids. I Hi my name is Colleen DeVine, Fitness, Clean Eating, Personal worked in the restaurant industry today I am a Health & Fitness Development and becoming for 15 years and therefore never Coach, Personal Trainer and involved in a positive, supportive had to learn how to cook or what is Certified in Nutrition.

that time old habits had caught up to me. I didn’t know how to stop and I certainly didn’t know how to start being “healthy”. I used to say things like “I can lose 10lbs anytime, I’m just not ready yet”, but who was I kidding, I was slowly dying inside.

My mission is to help others believe in themselves enough to have the courage to want to take those first steps towards change and to know that I will be right there with them, helping them along the way. You see, in the end my desire to change I believe that once we are able to my circumstances was greater than help ourselves and get ourselves my acceptance to stay in the same I can remember trying to tell stable then it becomes our place. people how I felt about my weight obligation to help others. This is and how uncomfortable I was, only why I became a Health & Fitness If any of my story has resonated to receive responses ranging from Coach, so to could help others like with you and you’d like to learn “Colleen, you’re crazy” to “Wait! me. more about how you can work What weight, you look fine”; but I with me please feel free to contact wasn’t fine. My self-confidence was me at: devinefit1@gmail.com or gone, I stopped smiling, stopped come visit me at: facebook.com/ wanting to leave the house, and devinefit1. my drinking got heavier to try and escape my reality that I didn’t know how to get out of. taking care of ourselves first that we can then be present to take care of others. A saying that has always stuck with me is “you have to put your own oxygen mask on first before you can help others”.

It took me two years to work up the nerve to ask for help and even then, my now Coach, I deleted her friend request three times before I finally agreed to listen to what she had to say. To this day, I don’t know how I found her that fateful night in February 2015, but that conversation has forever changed my life. Through the process of learning how to take care of myself I learned an important lesson; that it is not selfish to want to be happy & healthy and it’s only through

EXERcIsE FOR hEALTh HAVE A HEART, A STRONG ONE! February is heart month in more ways than one, yes it tends to be all about love and relationships but it is also Heart and Stroke month, which makes it all about you. Focusing on love and relationships keeps us healthy in its own way, we are social creatures and the company of others gives us relaxation, security and a sense of belonging, something each and every one of us needs to thrive. Focusing on our physical health can also be social and relax us, a good workout at the gym with friends makes us happier, relieves stress and the extra blood flow helps maintain a strong heart, which makes it and us work more efficiently. The security we can achieve from exercising is confidence from having strength, good balance and the stamina to accomplish day to day activities with ease. Giving yourself a good foundation of muscle helps to maintain healthy weight levels, muscle burns calories even while your body is at rest. Muscle tone can

be achieved by working out for short periods several times a week. Cardio gets the blood pumping strengthening your heart (which is also a muscle) and the circulatory system, sufficient cardio exercise can also be accomplished by doing it for short periods several times a week. Exercise also helps to reduce your risk of stroke, getting the blood pumping reduces blood pressure, stress, increases good cholesterol, helps with weight loss, fat loss, reduces risk of or helps to control diabetes and helps improve overall health. What you put in your body is as important as what you do with your body; eat healthy, lots of fruits and veggies, fibre is your friend, limit fatty meats, avoid heavy salted or processed sugar foods. Drink lots of water, try to make your own meals as much as possible, that way you know what is in the dish you are eating. Keep snacks healthy and easy; think old school, an apple or banana can be the perfect on the go snack, they are packed with the

Saint John Outdoor Sports and Leisure Trade Show Saint John Trade and Convention Centre

necessary nutrients to keep you satiated until meal time. Whip up a pitcher of smoothies, pour into small jars or drink containers these are the perfect grab and go when you need an extra boost. Apple/Kale Smoothie: 2 scoops vanilla protein powder, 1 cup almond milk, 1 cup raw kale (or spinach), 2 inch section of cucumber, 1 medium apple cored (and peeled if preferred), 1 tsp lemon juice.

TALEs FROM ThE cAMERA bAG MINDFULNESS While meditating the axiom “One day at a time” a single word sprang forward with such clarity - “Mindfulness”. Mindfulness plays a big role in thoughtful, considerate, photography. Let’s start with the simple things like gear selection. I am very fortunate to have three great cameras. At the start of my day of making images I will be mindful of the camera I chose; will it be full frame, does it need to be lightweight and quick or rugged with fast focus for the outdoors. Which lens should I bring to get the images I want. These are the practical aspects of mindfulness. I have a dear friend that says ( jokingly) that I spend my life looking through a small hole on the back of my camera. What he fails to realize is that while gazing through the viewfinder I am mindful of what I am seeing, I become more aware of what I am seeing. The play of fog on the Hammond river, but being still and waiting I begin to see the red canoe

emerge from the fog or the camouflaged owl in the tree. Considering that photography can be a mediation, also consider how grace brought you to this moment. While travelling along Route 790 I felt compelled to stop by a tiny cove; it took me nine images to get to that one image that was meant to be. Sometimes, I need to put my camera down and “Be in this Place” (a true New Brunswicker, eh) mindful of what pulled me here. There is an extreme satisfaction that comes from this kind of imagery, ecstasy if you will. I have other photographers who call this ‘being in the zone’ - when, the world somehow disappears and now it’s just you and your gear and the images you will create. Mindful photography lets us become aware of shapes, light, shadow play, composition, the way things interact with one another. Being mindful will mean putting away your preconceived ideas, your anxieties and possibly technique. While on Grand Manan I was not

aware of an image that I was drawn to. My dear friends strived for perfect exposure to get the perfect image of the dories at sunset. My image, was one of a severe underexposure, where the setting sun only highlighted the gunnels of the beached dories. Yep, technique right out the window. Can I encourage you to be childlike in your naivety, wander aimlessly without expectations. Don’t look for your next image, be mindful, aware. Let it quietly tap you on your shoulder as you begin to see things you have overlooked before. Shoot-Print Share. Edited for space, see full article at: Ossekeag.ca. 0032

FLOWERS IN BLOOM AND OPEN HOUSES Is anyone else as tired of winter as I am? Don’t get me wrong! There’s something peaceful about watching a gentle snow fall and I love the way my yard looks when covered with a pristine blanket of white. However, I’m not a fan of cold temperatures or icy roads at the best of times and after having an entire season’s worth of snow arrive in a twenty-four hour period, coupled with the joy of digging out of literally several feet of snow, I am more than ready for spring temperatures and green grass. Which got me to thinking about my favourite spring pass-time, gardening. What better way to overcome the winter blues than dreaming of the smell of fresh turned earth and the colours of those first spring flowers? Every year about this time I start pouring over my Vesey’s catalogues, circling all the new blooms, bulbs and seed I want to try. I start looking at different ideas on Pinterest and wishing I could wander around one of the local nurseries. My husband, Kevin, starts reminding me of the size of my current gardens and

the fact that, no, I don’t really need six new plants, because where will I put them? One thing led to another, and the Ossekeag team has decided to welcome spring with a complete overhaul of our office’s garden and yard. It seems fitting: new management, new look. Also, I get to look at all sorts of new and interesting products, and not worry about fitting said items into my garden at home. In that regard, Kevin and I would love to hear from our friends and neighbours- what would you like to see take place on the grounds of 242 Main Street? Red and white annuals to help celebrate our great Nation’s 150th? Maybe a riot of colour and different blooms in a variety of containers? Or something calming, such as shrubbery and evergreens? Personally, I love the wild abandon of the bushes and lilies that are currently trying to overrun the driveway, but it may be time to regain control - in as much as anyone can control the freedom associated with nature. The choices are endless, and we welcome your comments. You

can contact me at amanda@ossekeag. ca, Kevin at kevin@ossekeag.ca, or the Ossekeag staff at info@ossekeag.ca. Kevin and I will be hosting an open house on Saturday, June 3, from 1:004:00pm, as an opportunity to meet everyone and hear your thoughts about the garden and other upcoming ideas. We welcome you to stop into the office to share some treats, look over our garden plans, and see where the magic happens. We will also be holding our first colouring contest, so bring the whole family. All pictures submitted by children under the age of 12 will be featured on our website and Facebook page as part of our upcoming “Kids’ Corner”. Looking forward to your input as we move forward with the next stage of our adventure! 4436

sELF EsTEEM GRIEF AND SELF ESTEEM From the moment we learn of a loved one’s death, our life changes forever. Our self esteem can easily be impacted by the grieving process. We become more fragile, sensitive and vulnerable when struggling with our loss. As many who have experienced loss know, grief and bereavement can be complicated and no two people grieve the same. However, a common experience that some share is a loss of self esteem. Low self esteem can manifest itself in many ways. Often, we feel we have no control and this can leave us feeling powerless. We lose our identity - we are no longer a mother, daughter, husband, brother, friend, etc. We may also feel that we are no longer needed. Uncertainty for the future may make us feel vulnerable and like a victim. We may set unrealistic goals as to how long it should take us to ‘get over’ the death of our loved one. We most likely feel insecure because our life changes so drastically after a loss. It may cause us to

distance ourselves emotionally. Having low self esteem prior to a loss only complicates grief issues even further. You’ve lost a loved one - don’t lose yourself too! So often, others expect you to ‘get back to normal’ within weeks. This is unrealistic due to the fact that your life has changed and it will never be the same as it was before. The grieving process is healthy and adaptive. There is no time limit! Be gentle with yourself. Deal with your pain. You don’t have to forget the person who has given you so much to remember. Cherish the time you had with them. Speak of your fond memories. Notice the small acts of love and kindness that people bestow upon you and know that you deserve it. Do something good for someone else in need. This is not only good for your self esteem but it is also good for the person you have helped. Find a nurturing support group where you are accepted for who you are. Accept yourself.

Accept that you are hurting. Your pain is natural and is nothing to be ashamed of. You may feel incomplete or ‘less than’ without your loved one. The truth is you are complete, whole and so much more because of them. They helped mold you into the person that you are today. Be thankful. Self esteem is the resource you must boost, to heal yourself and move on. Go ahead and know deep in your heart that your loved one is proud of you.
