Glennon – A Lady of Purpose, Energy & Truth

So very nice to meet her!

I am still reeling from the blast of inspiration & energy I got from attending an Evening with Glennon Doyle Melton last night in Pasadena, CA at the All Saints Church.   It was a Wonderful venue & such an Amazing night. A friend and I drove up from San Diego on what was supposed to […]

Hello  Friends, When it comes to believing that women can do ANYTHING I am at the front of the line cheering the loudest.  I have seen & lived through the incredible things we can do & overcome be them triumph or adversity.  Women are impressive human beings kinda of like circus performers with an innate […]


AFFORDABLE SUMMER FUN!

It’s finally here…. The kids are out of school, the air smells like pool cleaning chemicals mixed with sun tan lotion & the sun seems hotter than ever before… It’s Summer! So the only question now is, What are you going to do every day to keep your kids entertained?  It’s expensive to send them […]


CAN YOU AFFORD TO DIVORCE?

Over the last year I have received many e-mails regarding all different aspects of Single Motherhood. Topics such as advice on disciplining children, setting up co-parenting guidelines, to how to form a support network, just to name a few. But I’ve even heard from a lot of very unhappy women who are living either currently […]


TECHNICALLY EVERYDAY IS MOTHER’S DAY – ISN’T IT?

Well, it’s upon us again, that time of year where we set aside one day, one very Special day to Celebrate & pay homage to our Mothers.  We scramble around the mall with thousands of others trying to pick out just the perfect token of our Love for her along with that card which contains […]


A Time for Crying, Remembering & Healing

Hello all, it’s been awhile since my last entry and some have been kind enough to inquire as to my status, so here is what has been happening. On December 12th of last year, my Father was admitted to our local hospital as he had pneumonia for the third time that year. He was in […]


Giving from the Heart may not require Wrapping Paper – but may just be the Perfect Gift for a Single Mom in your Life

I don’t know anyone who isn’t struggling to makes ends-meat these days.  It seems like even in households where two people work full time, the task of having enough is getting more and more difficult.  The cost of everything is rising every few months and when you add the cost of raising children to the […]


Single Mom Swap Meet, A Great Way to Help Others

How did it get to be that time again already?  I was at the mall yesterday and there was Christmas Music playing!  Really?  Where did this year go?  As I get older, it never ceases to amaze me how quickly a year passes. I remember during my Single Mom Journey about this time of year […]

RECOMMENDED READS

What a Great weekend….I got a very late start on my Spring cleaning and uncovered things I had forgotten about along with some things I should have gotten rid of years ago, (but that is an entirely different story).  Better late than never I guess! Among the lost treasures I uncovered on my desk were […]


Gift Cards – Impersonal or Practical?

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m a huge fan of gift cards.  Yep I said it, Gift Cards. For years now the jury has been out on whether they are impersonal or practical gifts to give.  Some people don’t have a problem giving them for birthday gifts but won’t consider them an option […]


A New Year Is Just Another 365 Days, Isn’t It?

So here it is, just hours before 2012 makes an entrance and I am neither overcome with excitement nor am I full of regret. To be honest I don’t particulary feel anything. Logic tells me that tomorrow morning when my alarm goes off and I face the first day of the new year, that I will have the […]


Holiday Hook-Ups: No, Not the Kind You Are Thinking!

Well, here we are.  Thanksgiving has come and gone, you are still full from the meal, and you are finally catching up on sleep from your first time “Black Friday” all nighter and now that nice lady on the radio morning show is telling you it’s time to Christmas-Up your house. You’re kidding right? This time […]


Affordable Holiday Photos—If You are Willing to Be Creative

So I’m not sure when exactly it happened, but Thanksgiving is days away!  Did I miss something or is the year just flying by?  That being said, I reluctantly accept the fact that the Holiday Season is upon us — but I am soooo not ready. Yikes! When I was raising my daughter, I always […]
