Fearing the Change

Pondering

 

This past month my son started the next level up at his karate school.  He has been doing karate for a while now and has come to love everything it has to offer him.  From learning how to defend himself to the discipline and making new friends, it has made for a great addition to his already packed schedule.

Topical Tuesday – Thinking of Spring Cleaning?

I know this time of year we are busy wrapping up the school year, trying our best to get our lawns in shape, and working hard to clean out all the old junk in our homes.  We are used to giving away old clothes, and out dated electronics in some cases too for all new upgrades.  What about in our pantry?  American’s over-consume a lot of things, but our waste of food seems to be the worst.  I invite you to look through your pantry especially and donate anything that has not yet expired that you know you or your family will not consume before its expiration date.  There are many food banks that desperately need items to help in your community.  There are many families that can not afford to put not only a health meal on the table, but enough that everyone gets enough to eat.  Many children go to bed starving, even in some middle class neighborhoods.

Over Stuffed / Over Joyed

This weekend will be busy, but a good busy.  I am baking and cooking a lot of yummy items for my son’s birthday party.  If all goes well, I will advertise my dessert options for sale.  So many people are busy this holiday season, why not let someone else do the little stuff for you?  I love doing it anyway!

For any readers that celebrate, I wanted to wish you a happy Yom Kippur.  I hope you have a wonderful day!

I hope whatever you are getting into this weekend, it’s safe, and full of love!

Birthday Bonanza!

It’s my son’s 6th birthday today. I had to give him a shoutout! I have so much planned for him today. Yeah, I always make a big deal out of things because why not? Life should be celebrated! 🎉

I hope you are having a fantastic week. I’ll save a slice of cake for you.

In The Quiet Hours

All is quiet here on the home front.  It’s Mother’s Day and I wanted to take a moment to write something to my son.

Thank you for giving me purpose, drive and life.  Thank you for being who you are at all times, regardless of the storm.  They say children are a blessing, but you are that word that does not exist in any language but can be felt at all times where and when it matters most.  Saying, “I love you,” merely scratches the surface of how much I truly do.

Continue to grow and continue to be a light for the world.  Continue on your journey through brush and fire yet remain in tact because you are strong, you are whole, and truly blessed by God.

Thank you for giving me the title of, Mom.
