Words Of Wisdom For High School Graduates From The #MaCs

words of wisdom for high school graduates

High School Graduation is here! I love seeing photos shared on social media of all the graduates and reading about their upcoming plans in life.  It took me back to my High School graduation many, many years ago.  I remember the talks from my mom, family, and her friends telling me they wanted to share words of wisdom for high …

Don’t You Do It

School is almost out for the summer. Kids are excited about sleeping in and not having homework. We’re excited too, but know that at week two we’ll be ready to send everyone back to school.

I Don’t Sign Papers In The Morning

Do you have children who cannot find their shoes, jacket, need something signed, etc. every morning?  Well, you are NOT alone.  Some days are better than others, but when those mornings hit in my house, I dish out blank stares.  There’s no yelling, no fussing.  Just blank stares.  One of my biggest pet peeves is the signing of forms.  No!  …

Each day is a new day.  It’s an opportunity to go into the world and make a difference.  With that comes a moment that we must take to practice self-empowerment, self-motivation, and self-love.  As we step out of the comfort of our own homes and sometimes our own bedrooms, we need to get our mind right to tackle this thing …
