Food is Friendship! 10 Habits of Happy Mothers, Reclaiming Our Passion Purpose and Sanity!

Food is Friendship! 10 Habits of Happy Mothers, Reclaiming Our Passion, Purpose and Sanity!   My mother loves people by feeding them. She stuffs them with good food-meat, usually, with potatoes and dark gravy. The kind of gravy that has become a lost art, perhaps because we spend less time cooking, less time learning our cuts of meat, less time pushing food on loved ones....more

Type 1 diabetes

 The new year is here and the 1 year Anniversary of my oldest daughter Jillian's diagnoses of Juvenile diabetes is just a few days away. It has been a roller coaster year of ups and downs and highs and lows. We have learned so much about this disease, but yet I still feel like I have not grasped it fully.

Be Sure To Put 'Mom' On Your Resume

A year ago it was time for me to venture back into corporate America after three years spent working for the most demanding boss on the face of the earth: my son. I learned early on that getting prospective employers to find you interesting after devoting yourself to a free-loading child takes clever manuvering. There is an unspoken resume protocol in America. While it is customary to boast of your mediocre piano skills and that you speak "conversational" Tagalog (no one would...more

The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers: Habit # 1 Value - Are you loved and needed?

Do you feel loved? Sometimes, perhaps, but many times you don’t. You are a mom and your days are filled with too much work to finish and complaining kids. Chances are you are in the camp with the rest of us exhausted women who flop on the couch at 10 P.M. with a pint of almond fudge ice cream and try to calm yourself enough to get to sleep that night.  If you have teenagers you may seriously question their love for you. Conflict between you and your kids can peek during these teen years and conflict hurts. When our teens snarl, we take it personally....more
