Give Your Child the Gift of Gratitude


Scientists only recently have begun to study the benefits of gratitude.  Vitamin G, as some like to call it, plays a critical role in happiness. Focusing on the positive boosts body, mind, and spirit. It gives us energy, inspires us, and transforms us. In a nutshell, it provides life with meaning by thinking of life as…

For the record: Thanks, honey

What would you change about your spouse? Is it the way he leaves dishes in the sink? Or the way she leaves hair all over the bathroom floor? Think about the items in your marriage you wish were a little better. (Please don't email me a list or anything.)

Now, more importantly, what would you NOT change about…

A Fairy Tail & Finding The Lost Prince

Today’s tale does not contain the usual sarcasm. It is a story of young love, heartbreak, and gratitude.

Once upon a time, back in the late 1970′s this shy little 17-year-old girl who was a wall flower and she became friends with a group of older co-workers. She tagged along with this group of older co-workers from the local fast food restaurant, to the hottest disco in town. It was very easy for under aged teens to get into clubs because they did not check your ID if you looked old… Continue

Thankful Thursday: A Successful Sleeping Routine

I cannot be the only one…who was shocked when my child moved past infancy and was still not sleeping through the night.  This is something that no one warns you about when you're pregnant, most likely because they don’t want you to jump off a bridge by overwhelming you with the REAL truths about motherhood, but when the Sonny Boy continued to wake us way past three years of age, I figured I would have a lifetime of exhaustion to look forward to.…

Thankful Thursday: Back to School!

I cannot be the only one…who is thankful their child has gone back to school after a long, long winter holiday.

I could almost hear the sighs of relief as weary mothers and overwhelmed fathers dropped their children off at the schoolyard.  I could see the corners of the parents mouths turned up, readily offering…

The Challenge of Gratitude

Relationships are so disconnected these days that I often find myself stopping to wonder where exactly we went wrong. I remember growing up as a kid every Christmas my parents would receive so many cards that most of all the doorways in the house would be decorated from top to bottom with tons of Christmas cards they’d received from family and friends. However, those days have long since passed. Just this past Christmas my parents received 2 Christmas cards. The irony is that…

Women Olympians Medal as Role Models

Ever since Title IX guaranteed equal funding for girls' sports programs 40 years ago, we've seen the results in school, the workplace and women's self-confidence. Studies have shown that girls who play sports in high school are more likely to do better in science classes, complete college, avoid substance abuse and join the workforce. And the more time they spend participating in team sports, the higher their self-esteem.


Naturally, there's also an effect on the playing…

The Quiet Moments of the Day

There was so much to be done today, lunch and conversation to be had with a close friend, children playing behind us, dishes to be done, laundry to be folded, banana bread to be baked, tent making, giggle inducing, kisses, oh so many kisses, dinner to be cooked, baby food to be made. And amidst it all, I caught these moments, gentle, subtle moments that may have almost escaped me, life changing, breath taking moments. Moments ridiculous to anyone else but me, for me they…

So You Didn't Win the Lottery…Now What?

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

Now that all the mega-lottery winners have stepped forward, the overwhelming odds are you didn't win. Americans spent $1.5 billion in their quest to win the jackpot, fantasizing about how they would happily spend the $656 million to be paid out to the winner. As it happened, there were three winning tickets so the final after-tax take home for each will be about $100 million. Still, nothing to sneeze at.

Are you…

A Thought on Happiness

This past year or two I've been thinking a lot about religion and spirituality. Matter of fact, lately I've been dreaming of listening in on a theoretic "end of the world" forum-of-world-thought. Well, I kind of just made that name up. But you get the idea. I want to sit down and listen to everyone who has a vision of all this massive change taking place worldwide and simply hear dialogue. It's the English major in me. I want all the colorful characters, the momentous stories. I want to line… Continue

Gratitude: Yes, Folding Laundry Makes Me Happy

It happened again today: I caught myself feeling really happy while folding laundry.

It’s such an odd thing because I don’t particularly like folding laundry. Well, it’s not folding the laundry that makes me happy — somehow, looking at our clothes always makes me feel really grateful for all the things I have in my life.

Psst, hey you...EVER HAVE A BAD DAY?

Sometimes we wake up on the wrong foot & never get on the right foot by the end of the day. Today was one of those days. Ever have one of those days? Well, by nightfall, I still felt that today deserved my gratefulness. One, it could have been a lot worse. Two, God created this day & God created me; and on His… Continue

About 10 years ago, I started thanking God for stuff

before asking Him for stuff. I think I felt bad that I'd jump right into

my morning quiet time with a list of "gimme's." Admittedly, sometimes

it's hard to find thanks, like on days when I wake up & thankfulness

is eclipsed by sadness or…
