  • “Whatever you are affirming, you are fertilizing.” That’s been one of the tough parenting lessons that I’ve had to learn over the years.

  • I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I certainly did.  Most of my family lives in the Indianapolis area, so we usually go there. We have so much fun together.

    I always remember the family meals we had when we were very young, and what I continually reflect on is all the laughter. I am proud to say, especially since I am now the ‘older’ generation, that we have certainly carried on the tradition.
