A mother’s work is never done

It is every mom’s wish to have happy, healthy and well cared for children, but sometimes in the pursuit of perfection, we forget to slow down. With endless days filled with meetings, luncheons, doctor’s appointments and kids’ activities, it’s hard to cram everything I do into a 24-hour period.

I was a latchkey kid, but I had my Oprah. Have watched her for decades now, read her book picks, listened to her epiphanies, taken her Dr. Oz's medical advice, decorated according to Nate's rules.

Happy is as Happy Does: Kick Roadblocks to the Curb

This is my third post on happiness, if I don't count posts that alluded to maintaining that happy feeling. All this introspection is killing me, but I'm one of those people who thinks the universe has something to teach us. So, when I consistently get the same request, to write on a certain topic, visit a certain place, pay attention to a certain person, I think perhaps I should fulfill that request. ...more
