Dangerous Places: Movies, Malls & Classrooms?!

Danger and Horror have a way of deeply imprinting memories in our mind.

I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing

rocking and nursing my (1 month) brand-new baby boy L-P. Usually, when engaged in this activity of privilege: feeding and comforting our baby, the TV was off! (Talking, singing, reading, music was on!)

However, this was not a usual day and for whatever unusual reason, the TV was ,

I heard the horrific Columbine...

Confessions Of A Caregiver

Confessions. An attracting or repulsing concept.

Blog description: A potentially playful truth or dare post IF you will.

Who hasn't made a confession?? Who hasn't played truth or dare??

What are you playing??

Doesn't everybody/somebody have "something" to confess or own up to or admit to or hide??

Some of us carry around weighty or light secrets (benign or malignant) we believe only we know. You must be carrying a secret, right??

Yes, certain professions require discretion, confidentiality, secrecy and/or responsibility...

LOVE: a 4 Letter Word Mothers (Should) Use!

Oh, it's okay baby, don't cry! (Mother, Mom, Mommy), Mama IS here for You because I LOVE You!

This beautiful word is expressed not only on our lips throughout the day to our kids, but in our daily deeds as we assist our young ones growing to maturity. Maturity doesn't involve just physical growth, but emotional, mental and spiritual growth as well. As mothers, our choices affect our kids in complicated ways. (Ways we may not fully comprehend at this moment in time due to our own limitations or limitations of science and research.)

Of course, every Mother wants the best for her child. Our choices (especially compassionate ones) hopefully: will have a VERY positive impact on our child's wellness: mental, emotional, physical, spiritual health!

What we eat and why?
What we feed our mind and why?
What we listen to and when?
How we spend our time?
