Letter from a Mom to Girls on Facebook: Must Read!

Dear girls,
I have some information that might interest you. Last night, as we sometimes do, our family sat around the dining-room table and looked through your social media photos.
We have teenage sons, and so naturally there are quite a few pictures of you lovely ladies to wade through. Wow – you sure took a bunch of selfies in your pajamas this summer!  
PLEASE READ THE REST! You'll want to share it!

You are Already Amazing!

This is not my writing. This is an excerpt from Joe Martino's blog, on www.collective-evolution.com
It helped me, and I hope it may bring you more peace, as he did for me. Anna Marie

A Powerful Lesson: Do We Cut Ourselves Short?

Some Encouraging News for when you're hurting.

Sunday, July 28, 2013
I just read this story, and it reminded me how the things that hurt us can end up being our greatest messages in life. Whatever you're going through right now, know that you're not alone, and that it'll look different once you're through it.

The Key to Being Happy

ARE YOU HAPPY?

Someone posted a quote on Facebook the other day that was a real eye-opener.
It said something like, "For some people life is full of angry, rude, selfish people. For others it's full of happy, kind, loving people. Same life."

We're all living in the same world. Why are some people always talking about the cool experience they just had with someone, and others always complaining about how rude other people are?

It's Okay to Enjoy Your Memorial Day

WHAT DOES MEMORIAL DAY MEAN TO YOU?

Although we know that Memorial Day is a day to remember the men and women who’ve died while serving our country, it’s also a rare day off for us so, to be honest, many of us are more excited that it’s a chance to hang out with friends, sleep in, catch up on yard work or get to a shoreline somewhere.

I don’t think you should feel guilty about doing that.

That’s what those men and women died for: your freedom. You have the freedom to either go to a cemetery to put flowers on someone’s grave, or to fire up the grill. 

Speaking out!

I'm so proud of Angelina Jolie for speaking out this week about her double mastectomy. She could just have easily kept it a secret. She's had breast reconstruction, so who'd have known?
But she told us about her choices, and encouraged other women to educate themselves and talk to their doctors, and make their own right choice.
Having lost loved ones to breast cancer, and having friends who've survived it, I'm all for more education.

"If you can't say somethin' nice..."

IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHIN' NICE...
I'm just wondering today about some things that have been on my mind, lately.
Like, what ever happened to just being nice?

I remember the saying from the old animated movie "Bambi" that went something like, "Mama always said, 'If you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all.'"
Why is it so hard to say something nice to someone?
Why is it so easy to make fun of some celebrity kid who's struggling and falling?
Is it because 'nice guys finish last'? And what does it matter if I finish last?
