“I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism”.  Charles Schwab

I am putting the finishing touches on my lesson for Mother’s Day.  I am teaching on Encouraging our children.  The above quote by Charles Schwab caught my attention and I wanted to share it with you.  EVERYBODY wants and needs to be appreciated, even our children and it doesn’t matter how young or old they are.  Do you know it takes 10 positive comments to overcome the effects of a negative one?  Find something good to say to them today and see how their eyes light up.

Okay, not going to teach my lesson on here.

Be blessed!

My dear Mother has been gone for several years and I miss her terribly. However, I do have the hope of seeing her again one sweet day. If your Mother is still with you today I hope you will take the time to let her know how very special she is. That is one thing I am always thankful for is that I let Mother know while she was alive how very much she meant to me. You can’t say or do enough for your mother! Give her a big hug if she is near you. Call her if she is far away, but let her know you love her. I thank God for giving me the best Mother a girl could ever want.

I hope every mother feels as special as you are today.  Happy Mother’s Day! 



You filled my days with rainbow lights,
Fairy-tales and sweet dream nights,
A kiss to wipe away my tears,
Gingerbread to ease my fears.

You gave the gift of life to me
And then in love, you set me free.
I thank you for your tender care,
For deep warm hugs and being there.

I hope that when you think of me
A part of you
You’ll always see.

When you were small… And just a touch away,
I covered you with blankets against the cool night air…
But now that you are tall… And out of reach,
I fold my hands and cover you in prayer
