Guys, no joke, 2020 was maaad. It ran like a crazy train till the very end, actually! All of us were really thankful to have lived to see the end and yet to have maintained our sanity. I recall feeling grateful to see the old year pass. Like you, I learned a lot in 2020…Read more Bright Hopes for Tomorrow
As I start to write this, I find myself humming the song: “’tis the season…” but I find that I don’t want to simply complete it the usual way: “to be jolly”. I can think of other ways to end the phrase, but I’m first curious as to how you would. As we complete what…Read more Tis the season
Preschoolers are quite different from toddlers. I know, I’m going to be writing from my own experiences, but I consider it sufficiently instructive. 😊 One of the main differences between them (toddlers and preschoolers) has to do with the cognitive capacities. A preschooler has a bit more critical thinking skills and so is in a…Read more About that preschooler specie…
To be honest with you, I don’t really know how to go about writing this post. In fact, it is more likely to be my first of several but I find it vital to at least start the conversation. What’s the issue? Well, I have only more recently found myself drawn to the reality of…Read more The Forgotten Kiddos
Happy new year, friends and family! I’ve been pondering for quite a while now what you’re about to read. Frankly, it’s about time I penned it down.

Of course, there are many writing directions one can take such a sentence, but what I am going to highlight here is with regard to relationships. In my opinion, all of life is…Read more People are such tools.
What is it about mothers and mothering that causes people to spend oodles yearly in celebration of them? Well, in my experience: It’s the only calling that isn’t necessarily based on ordination. It’s a task for which there is no standard/model/template to work with. A job in which every single day is different since there…Read more Why you need to…love a mother.
Let’s talk today about laziness. Why? Why??? Because it’s a condition that eludes me much these days. Lol. So, as I’m the one blogging (read: talking) here, so you just have to help me by reading (read: listening). I’ll rant a bit. A long, long time ago (dramatic, right?), there were days when I could…Read more Bones, bones, rise up!
If one went solely by what people said these days, an alien visitor to the planet would think that everybody loved everybody. Or that loving was easy and came naturally. Or that loving occurred whether you knew a person or not. EEEEN. Wrong. To love another is mostly a choice one makes. For sure there…Read more The flippancy of love
Hello, peeps and peepettes! I’ve been long gone, haven’t I? Turns out the death of one’s grandmother has many effects. All good now though. Happy to be back on the blogging scene. Missed you all! Did you have a nice Christmas? A nice entrance into the new year? I sure hope so. Hey, let me…Read more High Praise
