Have any of you heard of the "Right Brain Business Plan" by Jennifer Lee? It seems that she was the first thing that I came across when I put the energy out into the universe that I needed help and direction to stay on course with my current goal of opening a place in Grand Rapids. I love her message. It's almost as if it was designed for me.…Continue

I suck at losing weight! I really do! One of my goals for this year was to lose 30 pounds, which was a totally reasonable goal when I set it in January. As of right now, I'm
down about five pounds total. 5 lousy pounds in a year!! Since setting the goal, I have dieted and/or exercised. Or I've done nothing. This lack of doing anything toward the goal has to more with emotional issues than simply b
eing hungry. I've also tried a couple of quick-loss programs. Although…Continue

As a parent, I have been judged so many times I have lost count. It starts in the grocery story line or in an airplane. As the kids kick the back of your seat or scream through the entire flight, your anger and frustration is not necessarily focused on the child, but at the parents.
As a parent of a child with reactive attachment disorder (RAD), the parental judgment reaches higher levels. Now the judgment doesn’t come from strangers, but from friends and family. “Why can’t…Continue

On May 3rd 1992, my son Eric Miller was killed in a one car collision. He was home visiting with family in Louisiana. My family and I visited Louisiana very often. However, when my son began to insist that he spend some time in Louisiana with our family, I reluctantly agreed.
After I received the phone call telling me that my beloved, beautiful and kindhearted son was killed in a car accident; I slowly began to understand why going home was so important to him. It seemed as if I was…
I think of myself as a pretty creative person, decent at crafting and creating. Apparently my crafting niche does not extend to the making of gingerbread houses however. First, I made the icing way too thin, so it took me 3 days and lots of strategic propping to get the house to stand up. I decided not to even attempt to prop up the chimney, so the kids and I put it aside ate it. Then, I made the decorating icing too thin so most of our candy decorations were…Continue

Christmas can be the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, but it can also be the Most Stressful Time of the Year. All that shopping, planning, decorating, baking and traveling can turn a lovely holiday season into an anxiety-filled nightmare.
I'm as guilty as the next perfectionist. I want everything to look, smell, and feel just as it did when I was growing up. And when it doesn't, it means I am a failure. I have failed to "do" Christmas well.
I can't tell you how many times I…

I should be finishing Christmas cards...the Channel 2 Newsman warned me if I don't get them out this week they won't arrive before Christmas! But what do they know?
I need a moment to relax, this month has been crazy visiting people and eating mass amounts of food. It's hard work shoving your face with every delightful goody put before you while carrying on intriguing conversations. Well ok, so not all of them are super intriguing, for which I have only myself to blame.

The diner was well lit and cheery. The orange tiles reminded me of my own childhood days and delighted the babies as they scampered about. The outside wall was lined with windows at baby height, so that as we struggled to get from the parking lot inside, the babies falsely thought we'd made it before we reached the door.
"Uh, oh!" they said, tapping on the windows. "Locked, locked. Key! Ope! Ope door!"
We hurried along to get out of the wind. Once inside, we had to wait for…

I want to post a love-warning to you guys. Be careful & be alert to what's going on in your mind. Your mind is a field where a battle can be waged. God has our hearts, but the enemy whispers lies in our minds. A battle can ensue there if we aren't diligent & active in our Christian walk. It goes…Continue

This year, St. Nick gave the kids a gingerbread house kit, in spite of Mrs. St. Nick's strong objections. Mrs. St. Nick reminded Mr. St. Nick that the last gingerbread house she put together took two glasses of wine and assistance from a MIT structural engineering student.…Continue

There are those in life that we tend to admire from afar. For us, it’s the women who possess an inner beauty and strength that give them the courage to fight for a cause. It is the mothers, specifically, who find courage from within to protect their children while reaching out in the hopes of protecting your children as well.
Celebrity mom, Jenny McCarthy, is one such woman who Terry and I felt a deep…Continue
