“Well, this is it Mom.” Her hair blew her over her face as the warm wind passed over her tanned armed into the car. “The last stretch. Two more months of high school and that’s it.” Immediately my throat tightened and I bit my lower lip. I knew this was coming. Spring break in Costa [...]

Moms – You are the difference-makers. Change agents. Heroes. What you do every day – the hugging, working, teaching, organizing, praying, carpooling, cleaning, playing, laughing, crying, serving, and giving – it changes the world by deeply impacting those right at your kitchen table.

Just for kicks I thought I’d share with you some of my current favorites – things that I incorporate into each and every day just because they make my life better or more fun!   1. The Soda Stream The bad news: I’m now hooked on sparkling water. I mean, completely lost with just boring [...]

Without warning, it happens. Kids crush the laps on which they once nestled. Their predictable moods have transitioned to look more like the spin cycle of a washing machine. And their preference on when and how they communicate with others, particularly the parents, can sometimes feel like trying to read an outdated map in a [...]
