Celebrate Mother’s Day With Photos

Celebrate Mother’s Day With Photos

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate those we call mom. Young and old, biological or not, it is a day to say: Thanks – I Love You – and Do You Remember? But how do we do that? It can sometimes be difficult to come up with a gift for our grandmothers, wives, and(…)

One Word – Balance – for 2016

One Word – Balance – for 2016

Last year, for 2015, my One Word was GRACE. I know that I was able to do this with myself more than I ever have, and in many ways was able to do this with others. While I still think there is work to be done (we are all a work in progress), I think(…)

One Word – Grace – for 2015

As the New Year came and went, I saw many people choosing one word to focus on for this New Year. At the time nothing really struck me for mine, and then it suddenly came to me: My One Word – GRACE. Grace has a myriad of  definitions when you look it up in the(…)

Yes or No Mom?

Yes or No Mom?

It became glaringly obvious recently that I may just lean more toward the side of fun killer than fun creator. Sad, but true. Unfortunatley, NO might just come out of me a tad more than YES! So I ask the question Yes or No Mom? and does it really have to be one or the(…)

Unconditional Love & Parenting

Unconditional Love & Parenting

As I drive in the car, on the rare occasion when I have no children in the car, I find myself listening to the song Unconditional by Clay Davidson. As I listen to the words in this song, tears spring up as soon as it hits, “You can’t stop my love for you“. Is this(…)

Just 18 Summers ~ Time With Your Children is Fleeting

Just 18 Summers by Rene Gutteridge and Michelle Cox is in fact the title of the book that inspired this article. With Just 18 Summers until their children are grown, the characters in this novel grapple with guilt and how precious time is. But this idea has dug so much deeper into my soul and(…)

If I Could Do It Over – My Homeschool Advice for Those Starting Out

Eight years.  I still find it hard to believe that I have been homeschooling for eight years.  Through death, moving, sickness, and more, we have paved a path for ourselves that has become more of a lifestyle than I ever could have imagined it would become.  If I knew then, what I know now, if(…)

One Single Moment….

One Single Moment….

The One You Hold On To One single moment can change things….for better or for worse. One single moment may be all you have to hold on to, to celebrate, to mourn, to remember what it was all about. I smile a little brighter and my heart overflows. I relish in one single moment. One(…)

Why Do The Numbers Matter?

Why Do The Numbers Matter?

I could apply this title, “Why Do The Numbers Matter?” to almost anything, and maybe it should even be, “Do The Numbers Matter?” For instance, why does it matter how many goals your child scored? If it weren’t for the defense (who stopped goals from being scored) the number of goals scored wouldn’t make a(…)
