This Mother's Day, as we celebrate the wonderful mother's in our lives, we are also not blind to the fact that this day has great potential to bring a longing for the mother who has left us; the mothers who were gone too soon. The sting and the yearning it can bring to our days
Calling all Husbands, Fathers, family members, children, grandparents, mom-tribe friends, and anyone else this may concern this Mother's Day:
Still haven’t gotten anything for the woman who gave life to those little angels you call your offspring yet? Let me remind you - Mother's Day is in 3 days!

Mother's Day 2020: The year every mom deserved a one-way ticket to Tahiti, favorite snacks in hand, and unlimited spa credit upon her arrival. While you're at it, cue the iced, fruity drinks with cute umbrellas delivered to her poolside, too. K? Thanks.

A pause in the day for sanity, or to find somewhat of a

The first month of shelter-at-home came and went, and here we are, still in it.

Growing up, I remember always looking forward to Easter because as a little girl I loved getting SO dressed up in a fancy new dress, and always anticipating the goodies that would fill our Easter baskets from the "Easter Bunny." Don't forget the Easter egg hunts, which would always result in staining that brand new
Amongst the news headlines, fear of the unknown, and all that comes with COVID-19, how can we use this time to come together as a family and as a Nation?
It starts in our homes.
We must first come together in our homes.

Have you ever looked at a ship and wondered how it doesn't sink?
In a body of water that could swallow it up, the ship remains above the waves because that's how it was built. The very thing that is was made for (rising above the water), was also the very thing that could take it
I’ve been thinking for some time now about our roles in society. Our cultural “norms” when it comes to marriage. Specifically when it comes to help.
