The Gift of Kindness in the Face of Fear

Earlier in the week, I planned to write about volunteering as a way to bond with loved ones during the holidays. Some people close to me grappled with what to give me for Christmas since I don’t want stuff.  When I told them I just wanted to do good in the community together, I saw their…

It Takes A Village: My Story Of Community

“I am at UW Children’s Hospital in the ER waiting for J to get a CT scan! Call me back as soon as you get this!”

On a Monday afternoon almost 5 years ago, this is what I woke to. I had worked the night before and promptly went to sleep at 8:00 a.m. My husband had the day off and was home with the two little…

This Little Light of "Ours"

Our town was hit with two tornadoes the day after Christmas.  Families lost everything, including lives. I posted this short post on my personal blog as I was heading out the door to help. 

On December 26, 2015, my daughters, two stuffed unicorns, a Mini Schnauzer, the head of an English Mastiff and I crowded into a tiny shower.  We sang songs about Jesus and played with a flashlight while tornado sirens blared in the background. My husband stood on the porch of our two…

To the Parents of the Missing Boy:

toddler-390535_640

You don’t know me and I don’t know you, but yesterday, I was looking for your little boy.  We had been swimming at a hotel down the beach from yours when a security guard entered the pool and asked for all of the parent’s attention.  There was a little boy, only three years old in a bathing suit bottom without a shirt, who had wandered away on the beach.  My heart sank. We were to keep our eyes open.

The hair raised on my arms and on the back of my neck and I felt…

You give a little, you get a lot

Every Sunday morning, I give my son his allowance. He does a little song and dance he made up and races to his room to put the money into his three jars. So far, he's completely understood the purpose of his spend and save jars, but we haven't done much with his give jar. He knows that he has that jar in order to give back to the world, but we were…

NOW I Understand Being In A Blog Rut. Has This Happened To You?

I have been blogging since 2008 and yes, there have been periods of time when I think my words are pretty much spent.  'I've talked about this before' or 'No one's commenting so is anyone even reading my words?' or, a thought that happens more often than not, 'I re-e-e-ally want to write out this experience but if the people I'm writing about read this I would be mortified.  I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings'.  These thoughts, and some others, have held me in what I thought was a blog…

Teaching Kids About Differences Using Eggs

I thought today was a fitting day to tell the story about one of my favorite school events. When Mackenzie was in the 2nd grade, her school held an event to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. They used  this event to show the kids that no matter how different we may be on the outside, on the inside we’re all the same.

That in itself is very nice, but…

Kids Who Sell Stuff… And People Who Don’t Buy

I have 3 kids which means in our time and like everyone else, we’ve sold a lot of crap. We’ve sold cookie dough, pizza making kits, wrapping paper, God awful things they considered “gifts”, magazine subscriptions and of course, Girl Scout cookies.  We are VERY lucky that the elementary school we’re at now doesn’t participate in item sales – they just ask us for pledges and donations at the beginning of the year. And then nickel and dime us the rest of the year, but that’s a different…

Celebrating the Holidays Alone

By Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

Are you alone and wondering how you'll be celebrating the holidays this year? Whether you're divorced or widowed, a single parent or the spouse of a deployed serviceperson, it most likely seemed easier when you had a partner to share in the planning. But now that you'll be the one creating the holiday mood, take advantage of the freedom you have to develop customs that are just right for you. …

It Takes A Village: Does "Community Spirit" Still Exist?

I used to love this song when I was a child:
Sesame Street was the "bee's knees" and this song rocked my world. Who were the people in my neighborhood? I wasn't sure but I knew I wanted to find out, at least that's what the song compelled me to do. Being a kid growing up watching Sesame Street along with the Electric Company, I listened intently…

Who are we blogging to anyway? Is anyone out there???

I love the blogosphere, and since you are reading this, it is safe to assume that you do too!  Blogging is a terrific way to have a discussion with perfect strangers about topics that bring us together.  Perfect example: here we are at MomBloggersClub.com. . . we are all here for one reason: we are mothers seeking information, wanting to share…

Don't Let A Doctor Destory Your Baby's Hearing

Do you think that this is a sensational title?  It is posted this morning on CNN.com/Health.  I'm really curious to hear what you think because the story is about our family.  Will this encourage patient advocacy or will it harm doctor/patient relationships?

Why I Blog

Why do I blog?

 

It's a question I've been asked, been pondering, been mulling over, been justifying quite a bit lately.  As I try to shape this space into something that people enjoy and can relate to, yet is still uniquely mine, I have to make choices and try to be interesting.  Try to engage, persuade, entertain, inform.  I blog to connect with the millions of people out there like me, who…
