Get Over Yourself

What did I just say? You heard me, but I could phrase it maybe a little nicer. We need to get over ourselves. I could even make it very personal, I need to get over myself. No matter how I phrase it, the fact remains. I was having a conversation with a friend when they […]

Nomadic Lifestyle

Being a military “brat” (child of someone in the service), I moved a lot. Marrying a corporate executive added to the multiple moves. I recently figured out that, in my brief 57 years, that I have moved 31 times, been in 39 states and 8 countries. I tend to call wherever I’m sleeping “home.” However, […]

Stop bundling

I do not understand all the hatred in the world! People hate someone because of • Skin color • ancestral background • ethnicity • job • religion • culture • weight • intelligence • wealth • and more Why? Am I better than you, or you better than me, because of the way we look, […]

Grandchildren Interruptions

I have always said that, to me, it’s “family first.” Which means I will miss work if my family needs me, I will skip housework/chores if time with my family presents itself, and I will find a fill in for a prior commitment if my family comes to visit. Since last Friday, our oldest granddaughter […]

Praise the Positive

Last week I gave you an example of someone who was amazing at maintaining their composure during a child’s acting out for negative attention. I mentioned that many times, it is advisable to ignore the negative behavior if it is intentionally attention seeking. Although, I also added that the child must be safe, so if […]

Looks can be deceiving

What do you see in the following photo? A (slightly out of focus) pretty yellow flower, right? Other than thinking the person taking the picture probably isn’t a professional photographer you would probably look at this and think, “What a nice plant.”  Ah, but you are only seeing a part of the picture (the part […]

What’s a little disagreement between friends?

I have got to tell you a funny story… I have been working in early intervention this week and the number of children far exceed the number of adults. Obviously, the adults can’t have eyes on every child at all times. It’s more of a constant scanning, but kids seem to know when an adult […]

So much controversy

It’s time to write my blog and I’m not sure which topic to tackle. There is so much going on in the world, and almost everyone has an opinion. Of course many of those opinions are not in agreement. Which means there’s so much controversy in the world right now. What’s the most important topic […]

Making family a priority

As I was getting ready for the day, I got to thinking about all the things I have on my plate right now and thought to myself, “It’s a good thing we are empty nesters, because if I had kids, I wouldn’t be able to do it all.” This immediately brought to mind Stormie Omartian’s […]

I thought we were typical

I recently had an interesting conversation, about marriage, with someone. They were asking me about finances, control issues, and disagreements. I’m not sure how the conversation got started but it ran the gamut of many things. They commented that they didn’t really like the idea of the man being the head of the house that […]
