Do You Love Your Child “Every Single Bit”?

I designed this card to express how I feel about my children. How about saying these words to your own children? Help them feel like precious treasures. Because when children know that they are amazing and wonderful and CHERISHED, they have a healthy foundation for self-love and courage, and know that they have a safe… Continue reading Do You Love Your Child “Every Single Bit”?

Write Your Own Script, My Dear

So really. Why would you follow in the exact footprints of someone else? They do not have YOUR unique qualities, gifts, abilities, and desires, and you don't have theirs.

And if you believe lies about yourself, then you will act on those lies instead of the truth.   Any words that make you seem "less than" the amazing… Continue reading You Are MORE!

I Won!

Today I defied the compulsion towards People Pleasing!! (A lifetime-long struggle.)   Yesterday was grueling for me.   I taught reading to reluctant kindergarteners for three hours,   went to an appointment,   returned home in time to get my son off the bus --his OCD meant he asked every few minutes if we were… Continue reading I Won!
