I had such FUN Saturday at 57th Street Books! I so appreciate the people who are part of this wonderful, Independent Book Store.
It seems to me, that when you have chosen, as I think a lot of people I know have, to build a quality relationship with your kids, that this stage of life is filled with different energy… different demands, but rich in time with grandkids, your adult kids… and your new goals.
Learning and love… we do it each day of our lives! I am learning constantly how to balance my life… all the titles I hold… woman, wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, author… and GRAMMIE!
We all have 3 types of families: The ones we are born into, the ones we create, and the ones we choose.
Kids internalize what we say, and I wonder if the words we use are equally as powerful as the actions we choose.
