I’m excited to add yet another page to my site in my goal to promote positivity! Similar to my Sites I Like page, on this page I’ll share the people and groups and businesses that deserve recognition for their excellence in what they do and how they do it! And also similar to Sites I Like, I will update whenever I use, or come across, someone who goes above and beyond the norm, who doesn’t settle for mediocrity, but whose results show that they offer their best!

(Please note that some of the former entries here have been moved to the Sites I Like page as it seemed more appropriate.)

Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehabilitation is where I went through my cardiac rehab for the last 5 months. I had heard horror stories from others about their experience when they had to go through a program, so I went in with the idea that I could quit anytime. YET the people there made my experience SO positive and were SO helpful, friendly, and informative that I looked forward to each and every appointment! I could type all night and not be able to express how thankful I am for their assistance in going through a really tough time in my life, adapting to yet another disease, with so much information and support! I can’t thank them enough for the difference they’ve made in aftercare and my strength and stamina. I love this place and these people!

Home Depot is where I bought everything I didn’t get from Wayfair. VERY fast delivery, easy-to-use website, etc…until I tried to place an order a few days ago and had trouble with their website. I contacted them through the live chat and, because the situation didn’t resolve quickly, the CSR placed the order for me, AND gave me a hefty discount! I wouldn’t have expected the latter…but that is why I will continue to use Home Depot – which, by the way, has stuff on their website you’d never expect, a HUGE variety! – whenever possible!

Wayfair is the company where I have purchased most of the furniture and other items for our Nuwa . Everything arrived quickly, packaged well, as described, etc…but the Kudos are for the time I had to contact customer service. One item never arrived, though the FedEx paperwork claims it was delivered to the homeowner. (We would know if it had!) The CSR quickly got a replacement order on the road to us, that same day that I called – very professional but nice, and exceedingly helpful. THIS is why I will continue to use Wayfair whenever possible!

Sharon Cummings is an artist whose work I LOVE. I’ve got something on order from her site for my new home which I’ll post when I get it, but go see her wonderful work for yourself, she uses lots of color – which I LOVE – and interesting patterns. I’m not an artist, but when I see something I like, I want to share. Go see for yourself ok?

Between all of us we have need of quite a few health-related and personal supplies. And Carewell is the place we go for them! From potty pads for the dogs’ emergency use, to our bathing supplies (we have to use alternate methods for showering) and many MANY things in-between, this friendly company has always been able to supply us with everything. Their customer service is top drawer, and their delivery times can’t be beat! Definitely deserve LOTS of kudos!

Soldan’s Pet Supplies is my first entry. A small family-owned group of stores here in Michigan, I will gladly drive right past the big chains to take my business to Soldan’s. Not only is their staff always friendly and helpful, but they have a huge selection of foods and supplies for everything from horses to birds, and everything in-between, in their large clean stores! I will always choose local whenever possible, and my 20+ years of buying from Soldan’s is the main reason!
