I am so weary! It is time for me to rest!

“If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit, your time will expand. You will gain a new perspective that will allow you to accomplish much more.”  
Brian Koslow
Dear Son,
I have never worked so hard in my life, it feels so good to accomplish and see results but this economy is hard core!  It feels like I am pushing a cart full of rocks uphill!   It is time for me to rest then maybe I will get the cart up the hill... I love you, mom

What you say could stay for a lifetime

  Little "offhanded" remarks like

You look like you've gained some wight
Too bad you didn't get an A
Maybe next time you will hit the ball
We don't have enough money
Your acne is bad maybe you should wash your face more

Turn your words around 

You are beautiful!
Way to go on that test!
I am so glad you are playing ball!
We are rich in family!
You are beautiful just the way you are!

Words have Power - use them for the good!

Own Your Truth

If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything

June 11, 2011 Dear Son

My friend has Cancer
Reminding me once again how precious our lives are

Taking me back to my own journey with Cancer
 - the sadness - the joy – the love – the help – the tears and the helplessness 

Putting me into action of what I can do to help
Pray -Shop for groceries -Offer to do laundry -
Shop for soft comfortable anythings -Bring foods that she craves - 

with Rusty it was tapioca that Bobbie Jean made 

As my friend begins her “Cancer Journey” 
I will ask for prayers - I will send prayers - I will ask “what can I do?” 
I will answer the phone when it rings….

I love you Son....

Calmness, Peacefulness, Serenity...
The tendency to try to accommodate rather than argue.  
The understanding that differences are seldom resolved through conflict and that meanness in others is an indication of their problem or insecurity and thus of their need for your understanding.  
The ability to understand how others feel rather than simply reacting to them 
Control Of Temper

June 2, 2011 Dear Son,

I have just finished your first post to Kennedy!  
The "wish" poem
Wow! My heart soars to be able to share your writings.   
Someday Kennedy will see that we are a family of change, a family of survivors, a family who loves deep and honors our children
I am proud of the action I take today to change the cycles that have ran our lives for way too long
With love and prayer I honor you, my son, ~ a father who is beautiful~
