Whether we want to believe it or not, we all desire validation.   Things have definitely not been great for me, well let’s just say, for a very long time.  It is has been very easy for me to fall into feeling sorry for myself or to feel as though I have let people down.  And, as much...

I am the second of four children, first two boys and then two girls.  I have always liked this combination, because then each of us gets at least one brother and one sister.  Thanks, Mom and Dad! Not too long ago, my brother, sisters, and I were thinking about what to give our mother for...

I know . . . it kinda sounds like "Earth to Jane." When my daughter was a camper and later, a boarding student at the Academy, I'd put down the back seats of my minivan and load it with cases of "kid food."  Gummy bears, goldfish, M&M's, chewing gum, miniature chocolate bars, trail...
