People can have such an amazing influence in the lives of our children. I'm grateful for all the help I can get.

I'm always so grateful for the things others teach my children that I can't. Seems it really does take a village to fill those gaps.

This is such a powerful entry. What a difference it makes. I remember having a hard conversation with a friend recently who has been estranged from her mother for a number of years. Her mother than made an overture of trying to reconnect with my friend’s children and she was ambivalent as to whether this was a good thing. Her kids both have significant special needs and adolescence is likely to be very hard for them and I told her that however limited the relationship might be, her mother would be 1 more person in the world who would know and care about her children. That when life got hard, as it always does, that having even one more person who can bring them love is a gift worth receiving. Just last week I saw her with her mother and her kids at school and she was reveling in how much joy the rekindled relationship had brought her children.

So, have you figured out how I can help do "cross-country costuming"? Maybe we should figure out that whole "twinkling of an eye" concept? Oh, how I wish I was there to see D & M take the stage!!! Please let me know the specific dates, so I can be there in spirit, anyway. I have loved every one of the last 15 days, because your perspective always hits home for me (and you are a gifted writer, too =D) Thanks for taking the time to share; because I know you, I have been changed for good, for the better, forever.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
