Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Collaboration of Their Books

I am on the list for Chicken Soup for the Soul Bloggers, this means I receive books from them through out each year as they get released into the public’s hands. Sadly, I am a bit behind in sharing some of these with you, so today I share with you three Chicken Soup for the Soul books that came in towards the start of this New Year … as a means to share some ideas for gift giving and your own reading pleasure. As a fan of the Law of Attraction, I must say the author of these books has […]

That Moment You Realized, “I done Good”

This right here is my daughter. My lovely first born and only daughter. My sweet, lovely first born child and only daughter is at “that age”, and parents, I know you know what I am talking about! That age where hormones go flying, your child becomes someone you don’t know and things are a bit testing at times. It’s an age of changes across the board …. friendships, relationships, body image, hormones and much more! What I had hoped would happen but didn’t really expect to happen during this age of changes, keeps happening! The other day I had an […]

I Feel Invisible

Well, not me. My daughter. The tween. Says she feels invisible at school. While driving down the road my daughter and I have most of our random conversations. It seems, as of late, that is the easiest place for her to open up with whatever may be on her mind. She is 10 and will be 11 in October. The tween years. That middle stage of childhood. The testing  years of trying to find yourself and who your real friends are. Apparently at this age, everyone is dating. So says the daughter. Of course, she isn’t allowed to date per […]

Friendship – Always There Even when Apart

Friendship – Being a friend does not mean smothering each other with each waking moment of existence. Honestly if you are a parent who is able to smother yourself with anything but taking care of your kids during the day, I applaud you because you are a much more multi-tasking person than I.  There will be times when you have gone and angered your friend to the point where they have to separate themselves from you. There will be times when you and your friend don’t even talk for months because one or both is so busy with their own […]

{book review} THE BEST MAN by Kristan Higgins

I spent many days with my head in a book, but not just any book …. The Best Man was the book that I found myself so involved in reading that while I was sitting in my car at the school waiting for my preschool son, I completely forgot I was even parked at the school. I was so enthralled in reading The Best Man that my brain shut off all other surroundings. Do you have one of those friends that just seems to never get the right guy? She dates and dates just to find something wrong with each […]

What is it about the Unwritten “law” called Girl Code

There is this unwritten law between girls called Girl Code, have you heard of it? Urban Dictionary defines Girl Code as; “The code of guidelines that are {all} girls most obey in order not to get kicked out of the community.” So what is this girl code & is it different for every clique? For me I have my own set of girl code rules to abide by and I have let them be more of a basis of my moral character than a code between girls. To me, there are just certain things friends do not do to each […]

That’s What Friends Are For

My closest, bestest friend and I don’t always see eye to eye. I bet at times she gets upset with me and I know I get upset with her. The biggest reason is because I have never had a friend, a real true friend that I could disagree with and still be happy to be their best friend. I haven’t had many “real friends” in my lifetime so even though this woman has been my closest friend for four years I still have my moments of getting testy about the friendship and wondering if she hates me after a simple […]

Choosing “Friends” Wisely

I have a real bad habit of thinking “friends” means those you have met who are nice to you. I also have a bad habit of trying to focus on the good in people. I know every single person in this world has a bit of good in them, and yes I do believe this of some criminals. I feel that, without making excuses, life situations make some people focus more on getting negative attention versus positive attention in life, but they deep down want that positive attention. Some people were just not raised to know that there is a […]
