Publisher's Notes

Hello, all.


Here we are, in April—the second quarter of 2024. Wow! Do you feel like you’ve been running a race? It seems as if just about everyone I talk with has so much on their plates that they can’t even take a moment to breathe. 


Well, I hope every one of you takes a few moments to kick back and read this month’s Women’s Edition, so you can relax and decompress. Our goal here at the magazine has always been to be a positive refuge for our readers, where you can escape, relax, and rewind. 


Over the years, we’ve heard from our readers, “I just love that women’s magazine…I read it cover to cover…including the ads!” (In fact, a few years back, I briefly considered changing the name to “That Women’s Magazine”!) I would like to thank all of you for picking us up each month. By reading Women’s Edition, and letting our advertisers know how you found them, you are helping the small businesses in our community continue to thrive. You are helping the Omaha economy stay strong. 


Remember, these local business owners are your neighbors, your children’s friends, your church members. I am an Omaha native. Born here, raised here. Never left. Our city has gone through lots of changes over the years, but it still has the country hospitality that we all have become used to. I’ve travelled to lots of different parts of the country, and I can honestly say that I have never run into a city that is as welcoming as Omaha is. 


I was meeting with a client the other day, and we started talking about how Omaha still has that small-town feeling. I commented, as I often do, that “Omaha is the biggest small town in the United States of America!” The client couldn’t agree more. We are very blessed to have such a
wonderful community.


We at Women’s Edition are still committed to bringing you stories that are positive, informative, and uplifting. We avoid negativity at all costs. So turn off the tube, the phone, the iPad…and read, learn, relax, and enjoy. I think you’ll find yourself breathing better, smiling more, and taking time just for you!


As I wrap up this column on March 7th…deadlines, you know…Manny just finished mowing the lawn. Mowing the lawn, on March 7th! Who would have thought? Enjoy. ’Til next time!

Positive Thought of the Month

“I write about people in small towns; I don’t write about people living in big cities.
My kind of storytelling depends upon people that have time to talk to each other.”—Lee Smith
