The Cultivation of Courage Series

Lesson One: Let Them Fail Now more than ever our children need us to model courage and witness us standing up for what is right. We must do this even when it is painful or difficult, especially then. We need to ask questions when we’re not sure and challenge things we don’t believe to beContinue reading “The Cultivation of Courage Series”

Magic Matters-There’s No Denying It

Without the magic of it all, what is the point of it all? Think about it. What would be missing from a world without the mystery and the magic? Well let’s think; Santa, Rudolf, Frosty, The Little Drummer Boy, cookies and carrots and presents AND family gatherings… The Easter Bunny, egg hunts, baskets filled withContinue reading “Magic Matters-There’s No Denying It”

The Best is Yet to Come 

This can be easier said than done. Does that mean we shouldn’t still strive to achieve? Of course not! Life is not supposed to be easy. It is meant to challenge us and teach us every step of the way.

Sixty and Sunny….

Being from New England means you get to enjoy the change of seasons. It means that you witness the trees transform from green to a beautiful mix of reds, oranges, and yellows. It means you watch football with the windows open while you cook a hearty pot roast and and bake an apple pie.  ItContinue reading “Sixty and Sunny….”

Magic Matters 

Did you know that October is ADHD Awareness Month? I never knew either. I actually can not believe I have spent most of my life knowing as little as I do about the struggles I face. Honestly, I have always just thought I was lazy, crazy, and…well… just not good enough. Thankfully that simply isContinue reading “Magic Matters “
