Good in Every Day

Every day may not be good, but there is good in every day. I’ve heard different examples of this used. The point is, it’s all in how you choose to look at it. What good has already happened for you today? Can you see that you opening your eyes, drawing breath and even reading this […]

The Mom’s

I have three other Mom’s that I get to do this Mothering journey with! I say get to instead of have to, because life is better when looking at it with gratitude! Many of us are sharing this parenting journey with someone outside of a “nuclear family”. You can choose to be angry, resentful or […]
