Human Kindness
I was sitting with a friend at a park a few years ago and I observed a father attempting to get his child to exit the playground. He worked on telling his very active son that it was time to get into their vehicle so they could go home.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Human Kindness By Jennifer Richardson
Remember when people used to routinely visit each other’s homes? Extending hospitality seemed predictable and normal. When I was growing in my parents’ house, it was an odd week when our family did not have guests around our dinner table.

Saying Our Goodbyes
You learn a lot about someone by the way they say goodbye. It takes a special kind of person to really say goodbye, and mean it well, and walk away with a healthier heart. It is a skill, a practice, and a perspective we could all work on, because we are required to accomplish it many times in this challenging journey we call life.

525,600 Minutes
I enjoy the start of a new year.

All around me people are making resolutions, setting lofty goals, and turning over new leaves. Improvement is on the way, progress must be made. And this is always the year to make it happen.

Lodged In Our Hearts

A Full House
I remember being in college and hearing my mother say that she loved it when all the kids came back home. She loved having all six children back under one roof.

Human Kindness
Do You Hear
What I Hear

These stanzas are from the poem Christmas Bells, written by American Poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow while our country was in the midst of the Civil War.

Looking Down The Other Kid's Chimney
Those who know me understand that I love Christmas. I like the little things, like hot chocolate and Christmas music. I love the family traditions, the decorating, and taking precious hours to connect with people we love. I also love the more profound ideas of Christmas; giving and caring, and celebrating faith. Honestly, from stockings to snowflakes to family dinners, I love it all.

Thanksgiving for Grandma
As we move toward Thanksgiving dinner this year, I am reminded of my Grandma Kate. She comes to mind often during the holidays because she loved to put a meal on the table and there wasn’t much in the world she cherished more than family.

Be the Better Fan
I am a fan. I appreciate several sports, but basketball is my hands down favorite. All ages of players are great to watch, but high school is the most fun for me.
