Overcoming Feelings of Un-Appreciation!

Whether you just happened to stumble upon this post or have come here from my Letters Of Lace series. Know that you are in the company of a good friend!

Dear Friend – With No Kids!

      51 Comments on Dear Friend – With No Kids!

A little while ago a very dear and special friend made a passing comment that she never read my blog because she wasn’t a mom. As human nature would have it, I was a tad offended. However, once I was able to get over my self pity and think a little deeper into why she made that comment, I was… Read more »

Will My Children Always Talk to Me?

      40 Comments on Will My Children Always Talk to Me?

I’ve been pondering this question for a while now. I suspect that, as my kids get older, they might not always want to tell me what’s on their hearts. Even now, while they are still very young, the news they share about their day at school or time they spent playing with friends are becoming more vague. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m nagging, and that… Read more »

The Joy Finding Bucket List

      16 Comments on The Joy Finding Bucket List

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about “Finding My Joy Again“. In it I explored the question of whether or not it is possible for a mother to find and enjoy the same unbridled JOY that our children seem to revel in. They always seem so carefree, without stress, and purely happy! The answer to this question is: Yes!… Read more »

My “Momster” – in law

      3 Comments on My “Momster” – in law

On Mother’s Day, we sometimes get so caught up in thanking our own mothers, grandmothers, aunts etc. that sometimes we forget about another special person… our Mother-In-Law. We forget that she spent just as much time, love, and care in her own household, raising that special person that we love with all our hearts. I know that there are many… Read more »

Finding My Joy Again

      24 Comments on Finding My Joy Again

I often catch myself thinking, while watching my children play, how I wish that I could experience that same unbridled JOY that seems to ooze out of them.   The pit-of-your-stomach kind of laughter, the smiles, the giggles, and innocent teasing that fills their play. I must admit, sometimes I’m a little jealous of their JOY. a joy so unencumbered… Read more »

20 Positive Phrases My Children Need To Hear!

There are often days that get so busy or “out of hand” that I tend to forget to affirm my children for all the little positive things they do during the day. We get so caught up in trying to correct their negative behavior (because that is our job/hope as parents – to raise non criminals 🙂 ) that we… Read more »
