It’s back to school time. YAY! Fall—my favorite season—is just around the corner. I’m excited to see the colors change on the trees from beautiful greens to shades of red, brown, and orange. The fall foliage is a plus to living in Georgia, and I get to say goodbye to these hot summer days.

Is it too late to say Happy June? Nope. It’s never too late to speak positive things over another person. And, no matter how old you are, it’s never too late to become a part of or be born into a good family. This month’s word/theme is Adopted by God. Father’s Day is this month.

Is it me or does 2016 seem like it happened years ago instead of months? It’s April, the first month of the second quarter of 2017. Here I am. Still fighting. Still moving forward—even if it’s a struggle. I press on because I have hope. That’s why I work today. April, oh April. April

Sunday is laundry day at my house. This part of the challenge was a no brainer. My oldest child is (has always been) independent. My youngest child–not so much. Every week as we prepare to select, iron and put away their school clothes Baby Boy convinces (my husband says he plays on my symphony) me
I spend a good amount of time with my boys. I work from home and have the flexibility to adjust my schedule around my family. Because if this, I end up saying “no” and being responsible for disciplining them most of the time. Like many primary care givers, I struggle with finding the balance between
I seldom talk about why I started my consulting company. Well, being a victim of pregnancy discrimination can open your eyes to things that really matter in life.
