March is here. The third month of the year. A time when New Year’s resolutions may be coming into fruition, or have been discarded altogether. This is the month when we realize time flies, and that 2013 is coming into full swing. Warm weather slowly makes its return; the flowers are blooming. March is the month of Caesar’s fateful Ides, metaphors of lions and lambs, and of course, St. Patrick’s Day. While traditions vary, there are certain hallmarks of the day that come to mind. Reveling with friends, grand parades, the donning of green and the annual return of the McDonald’s shamrock shake. Ah, shamrocks. A typical shamrock, or clover as we know it, has three leaves. Once in a blue moon we stumble upon the four leaf clover, an uncommon variation. A four leaf clover is thought to bring luck to it’s finder. Approximately 1 in 10,000 clovers have four leaves, so … Continue reading

The following article appeared in our STW February Newsletter. To have the monthly newsletter delivered to your inbox SUBSCRIBE HERE.

Or we wish for that someone special and wonder where they are. May I offer a suggestion? Perhaps we create another conversation around love… Do we cherish who we are? Do we take care of ourselves? Do we love ourselves enough? I sometimes find myself in doubt, encased in fear and literally feeling paralyzed by my emotions. Keeping myself in a state of worry, I wonder if I am worthy of being loved and taken care of. I begin to question everything I that … Continue reading
Our Serve the Warrior video was featured on The Daily DoGooder this month! This is what they have to say…
As we say goodbye to 2012 and usher in 2013 it is the perfect time to reflect and retune ourselves for the coming year. In doing so our team had a chance to look at what we’ve accomplished in 2012 and make plans for what we will achieve in 2013!! OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS In March of 2012 we saw the birth of Serve the Warrior! Julia’s vision of creating a retreat for Veterans with invisible wounds such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI) was in such need that the support has been flowing with grace and ease. From the Veterans we have met seeking alternative resources, to the healing professionals and individuals who are eager to volunteer, it is apparent this is a COMMUNITY whose time has come. We joined forces with Kind … Continue reading
Like so many of us, Karen Martino was deeply saddened by the recent, senseless killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. She shares that she felt so at a loss as to “how can I help” … and then a lightbulb went off!!! She shares this: I want to send Serve The Warrior a donation in the names of the adults lost – since they too, like our vets, served in the line of duty! Therefore, I would like to donate to the Serve The Warrior cause, to use in whatever way it’s needed, $1,000 in honor of each of the brave women who died – Dawn Hochsprung Victoria Soto Mary Sherlach Lauren Rousseau … Continue reading
