Moments

Finding Peace

This is my view tonight. As I lay here in the pool, the word peace came to mind.  I was overwhelmed by how calm I felt and how peaceful it is.   After 8pm, after the 3 littles are in bed, after the teens are all organized with their evening plans.   Quiet.  Peaceful. Got... Continue Reading →

This spring I am challenging... Continue Reading →

Grandparents vs Grandparents

Grandparenting today can look very different from one family to the next.  Some children grow up having relationships with their grandparents, great grandparents and even great-great grandparents.  To other families who started later in life, this may sound impossible as their parents are much older and their grandparents are in their 80’s by the time...

Dealing with Disappointment

Today I am disappointed.  There's no going around it.   I had made plans but viruses have their own minds and plans.   We were all packed to go visit friends for a few days but my gut was saying none of the kids were healthy enough to make the trip so guess who else was disappointed?...
