"My coming to faith did not start with a leap but rather a series of staggers from what seemed like one safe place to another. Like lily pads, round and green, these places summoned and then held me while I grew. Each prepared me for the next leaf on which I would land, and in this way I moved across the swamp of doubt and fear." - Anne Lamott

"Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now, we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones." Thich Nhat Hanh

"There is no waiting for something to happen, no point in the future to get to. All you have ever longed for is here, in this moment. Right now." -Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Try this- instead of saying to your kids: “The most important thing is that you’re happy,” say “The most important thing is that you’re kind.” Great tips for teaching kindness from Making Caring Common.

Small town surprise during our recent visit to Orlando. This is downtown St. Cloud, FL only about 20 minutes from Disney. Charming streets, unique shops, yummy dining,  interesting history, and beautiful lakefront development. Exciting things happening here!

When I grow up, I want to #write like Helen Keller. Not only was she profoundly inspirational, she was also daring, an unapologetic activist for peace and human rights. When I visit the AFB office in NYC, I like to sit at her desk and typewriter and hope that some of that genius will rub off on me. :)  #HappyBirthdayHelenKeller  and thank you for changing the world!

Last week Summer learned to swim. She overcame one fear after another until 2 hours later, she could paddle about 6 feet. She didn't want to leave the pool, she had more to do!

I love her courage,her sense of adventure, and determination to succeed. She inspires me to be more brave with my own challenges!
