PAIN and PASSION
I’m a proud 67 year-old mother of 7. Yes, and for those who will wonder … they’re all from the same man. I’m also blessed with 15 grandchildren. Childbirth labor 7 times was worth every tormenting contraction. Having gone through that, I knew I could overcome everything else.

By Suki Kramer, Founder and Formulator of suki® skincare
I recently saw an interview with a one-legged Olympic skier.
She lost her leg when she was a child, and reflected on the day her mother casually handed her a pamphlet for ski camp. It was moment that changed her self-concept forever, and helped her begin to envision a future beyond recovery and the limits of her “condition.” Her mother planted quite a seed that day– enough for her to see herself not as a, “one-legged woman” but as someone who could ski…and eventually become a champion.
