The other day, I had my kids at the park and there were some older boys playing basketball on the nearby court. My friend looked at me and asked if maybe we should just go to another park. "Why? Because of the teens?" She nodded and looked at her small children. I used to teach middle school and have to admit that I actually like this age - a lot. I… Continue

I saw a cartoon recently depicting a mom on a street corner with a sign that said “Will Worry for Food.” I know the feeling. I often wake up in the night in chest pounding worry for my children — worries about their hurt feelings, their disappointments and bad moods. And, of course, I worry most for their health and safety. One small worry can spark a blazing wildfire fueled by anything and everything that could possibly go wrong (a worrisome… Continue

I can relate to babies. I get over-stimulated in the supermarket the way babies do. I have a strange aversion to making lists and always believe I will be able to take a few minutes to march down each aisle, recognizing all I need to buy. Twenty minutes later, I’m in a zombie trance and have covered less than half the store.

To me you… Continue

Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm happy to be here... on earth, I mean. Life is precious and every day is a gift. I'm a positive person and hope to spread positivity to as many people as I can.
I come from a large, loving family and know and deeply appreciate the value of communication and respect. Remember to respect yourself before you solicit respect from others.
Make this a good day!

How do you define respect?
Responsibility – We are responsible for our words and actions.
Expectations – We state clearly how we expect one another to behave.
Sharing – We value sharing as an essential part of our relationships.
Practice – When we make a poor choice we practice using new words and behaviors to model a better choice.
Everyone matters - We celebrate everyone in our family in a respectful manner by valuing each person’s unique contributions to… Continue
