Emotional Rollercoasters

I know several people who seem to be up and down, emotionally, throughout the course of a single day – and in any given week, they run the full gamut of emotions and are just all over the board. It seems that these folks are responding to every situation in their lives. The way they […]

Do you have a “strong-willed child?”

During a conversation my friend commented, “But I know you. You’re gonna do what you’re gonna do.” I had to chuckle, because I thought I had left that behavior behind me many years ago. My husband then chimed in, “We know where our boys get it from.” To which I promptly deflected the blame onto […]

Patience Is Still A Virtue

I have jokingly said “Patience is a virtue… that I don’t possess.” HAHA What is a virtue anyway? Dictionary.com says… “–noun 1. moral excellence; goodness. 2. conformity of one’s life and conduct to moral and ethical principles; uprightness. 3. a good or admirable quality.” Let’s go with #3. So, patience is a good or admirable […]

When the numbers don’t add up

This coming weekend, we were to have a free informational symposium for military families. It was to be our 5th one. Unfortunately, this event had to be canceled. The registration was so low that it wasn’t feasible to pay the staff to set up and tear down or expect those who were participating to be […]

The words that scare us most

Like many of you, our family has had its share of devasting moments. A few years ago, our sweet grandson was not responding to his name. At eighteen months he wasn’t talking. His older sister was quite the chatterbox by that time. I know, I know, you shouldn’t compare one to another. Each child is […]

A Child’s Tomorrow

A friend’s recent Facebook status quote by her young son, “I was a good boy tomorrow” just cracked me up. It also reminded me of a “tomorrow” story involving my own son. Let me set the scenario – it is Christmas Eve. My son & I are staying the night with my parents, so as […]

New Year? No Worries!

I hear so many people talk about being “worried” these days. I could put all sorts of witty quotes about worry here, but you’ll have to go to the Facebook or Pinterest pages for those. Simply put and all quotes aside, worry doesn’t help. Who or what have you ever helped by worrying about it? […]

Awaiting the Unknown

I write to encourage others to move positively forward. When I face my own challenges, I feel compelled to walk my talk. We have a health situation with a family member and indications have been that it may not be an easy go from here on out. BUT, we don’t know, yet, what they are […]

Hard to get up in the dark

Have you noticed it’s dark when you get up these days? I typically get up at 6AM. It’s dark now. During the summer it was easy. The bright sun shining through the curtains seemed to say, “Good Morning, Pam! It’s a wonderful new day! Let’s get this party started!” Last week, as I rolled over […]

Riding out Florence

I was having a conversation the other day with a friend who is frantic about the incoming hurricane. She was tracking it relentlessly and checking her phone for updates, constantly. She has family on the coast and was, understandably, concerned. However, her concern was stressing her out… big time. Her family had come to stay […]
