Is Your Pain Clean or Dirty?

Clean pain is a part of life. It is necessary. It helps us grow and heal. Allowing it is important. Resisting it hurts worse than the pain itself. It’s the deep sadness you feel after losing a loved one. It’s the hurt you feel after being betrayed. It’s the fear you feel upon losing a job. […]

5 Ways to Survive Your Kids’ Homework

There’s something really magical about back to school time, and something really painful too. The new clothes, sharp pencils, cool weather and return to a productive routine are all things I loved as a child and I still love as a parent. Now that I am a mom I also get the benefit of a […]

Start looking forward to Tuesdays

I think Tuesday is one of the most neglected days of the week. Monday gets a lot of attention for being sort of a pain. Wednesday is half way through.

One of the BEST Feelings – Rock Your Goals

At the beginning of the summer I let my kids choose a goal. I helped them brainstorm possibilities like reading an entire book, learning how to make their favorite dinner or being able to run a full mile . They picked learning to blow a bubble gum bubble. Ok I’ll take it. When we set this goal […]

Love for my Housekeeper

Do you have a housekeeper? Mine is coming tomorrow and I won’t lie. I feel like a child on Christmas Eve. Her name is Claudia. She only comes once a month because any more than that I can’t rationalize spending the money on. But the day she does come is always one of my most […]
