This blog is for anyone who wants to enrich the quality of their life and the lives of their children. The blog provides informative, yet simple and practical lessons in life, parenting, home & wellness, and education. Lessons that the reader can immediately apply to their life, the lives of their children, or the children they serve. This blog can benefit anyone who is searching for inspiration, information, and empowerment in the areas mentioned above. This includes but is not limited to parents, teachers, administrators, working moms, stay-at-home moms, dads, grandparents, etc.
I must say I started this blog with my children in mind, but it developed into a more wide-spread mission of sharing my parenting journey with others.
Losing my father unexpectedly at a young age gave me an understanding of how quickly someone can be taken away from you without warning. A realization that, however painful, taught me some valuable life-lessons and totally changed the trajectory of my life. I was given the gift of spending almost every day with my father during the last 5 months of his life and it was during that precious time that he led me to the profession of education. I would not be an educator if it was not for my father’s inspiration and example of 30+ years of dedication to the education field. I definitely would not have gone as far as I did with my personal education if it was not for my father’s inspiration driving me. Ultimately, I would not be who I am today if it wasn’t for the example of both my mother and father. The lessons that they taught my brothers and me, the life skills that they imparted to us, greatly impacted who we are today. I want to be that example for my children and I want to leave a blueprint of the lessons I have learned and lessons that I want to teach them and future generations to come so that they can live an enriched quality of life and be a light to others.
This platform gives me the opportunity to share the many lessons I am currently learning on my parenting journey, lessons I have learned throughout my life as a young girl, daughter, woman, Christian, friend, teacher, leader, wife and now a mother. My hope is that the lessons I share in this blog will inspire and empower others to live a better quality of life and prompt them to pay it forward and teach their children to do the same. It is my heart’s desire to see my children, all children, for many generations to come, live an enriched and fulfilling quality of life.
Since I am a teacher at my core, my blog articles will be written as lessons that can be practically applied to everyday life. These lessons will be centered on four major areas: life, parenting, home & wellness and education. The lessons will be centered on areas that I am working on myself, things that I have learned and have benefited me in my past, and things I want to teach my children now and in the future.
By no means do I claim to know it all or to be an expert in any of the four areas. I am a work in progress, a mess on some days, and I have not arrived at all. I am trying to be a better me every day and hopefully, I can inspire others to be as well.
