If you ask your spouse to do something and it's not done yet, do it yourself. It's not worth the time and energy complaining or nagging to get the job done. Not doing the job because of the "principle of the thing" is a great way to put a crack in the bedrock of your marriage. This doesn't mean you have to be a doormat - just don't spend your time and energy on negative feelings, like stress or frustration that something isn't done. If you can't do it yourself without whining and… Continue

I have the desire to clean up my life.
My house. My car. My bills. My self.
I want to finish the laundry and get it all put away. Lysol every toy and surface in this house. Open the windows and let mother nature show Febreze how it is done. I want to mop the floors, clean the toilets, scrub the showers and tubs, and wash the windows.
I want to steam clean the carpets, reorganize the cabinets, dust the cobwebs out of the corners. I want to wash the area rugs and… Continue

As the mother of a child with Down Syndrome (see Molly's story here), I cried happy tears yesterday for a child I've never even met.
It was homecoming last night for Fletcher High School, here in Jacksonville. Every girl dreams of… Continue

Follow me if you are so inclined!
I love the tree, lights and decorations and every year, on the day after thanksgiving, my tree goes up, no excuses. Well...it would so happen that I have raised a 4 year old daughter who loves all those things too and she has been begging since Halloween… Continue

My kid asked me the other day “Mom, Sara’s mom says that being organized
is a trait that passes through generations genetically. Are you
organized?” Fortunately, I didn’t have to think long on that question.
Quoting Grandma and myself as exemplary examples, I assured her that
these things are known to miss a couple of generations.

checking them off going through life packing for a trip… Continue

I have no proof but my gut feeling says that my parents coughed up big
money all those years ago to pay off the Education board to let
me graduate from College.
Why do I suspect foul-play in my
education? Many reasons really but when the first time I held my
daughter's homework folder and my stomach involuntarily heaved in
protest, I knew something was fishy. Forgive me for asking, but
shouldn’t I be able to do a fourth grader’s homework with… Continue

I rememeber the experience I had with my little Daniyal : I breastfed him and he's pretty contented when he gets the breast milk but trouble starts when I have to get back to work and my mom and helper has to bottle feed him. He simply refused the bottle! It seems that parent of breastfed babies re often faced with this problem. So, the probable solution would be to purchase wide-base nipples that more closely resemble a mother's breast. This would ease the switch or the babies. For newborns to… Continue

Recently, I heard a speaker say that, “the home is the domestic church.” Home is where the family flourishes, traditions are created, memories are cherished, where morals are instilled, and most importantly where our children learn their values. The church is place of worship that provides Christians with fellowship, instruction, and comfort.
Bringing our children to church is an integral part of their Christian education. The church is a wonderful place for families to gather and… Continue

Regardless of whether you’re a stay at home mom or a working mom you are always working! During the week you are bombarded with countless errands, lunches to pack, dinners to make, bosses to please, and children’s activities to attend. The one area of your life that can easily get neglected is your spiritual life and your relationship with God. I am a single mom and I literally am always on the go, but I realized that if I didn’t make time for God and nurture my intimate relationship with him,… Continue

Life is busy! It is easy to get caught up in the craziness of the day. We can get so preoccupied in checking off tasks on our to do lists and getting dinner on the table at exactly 6:00pm that we can forget what matters most. Children grow up in a blink of an eye, one day they're in preschool and the next you are moving them into their college dorm room 500 miles away. Yes, friend life passes us by quickly and that's why it is important to give your kids what they want most and need most…you!… Continue
