Spring break is so close.  
It's almost here. 
And it's just what I am in need of ...
Right now.

Today is the last day
To send kiddos home 
with lots of books to enjoy.
Right now.

"You will be missed."
Then we say our goodbyes 
with many hugs and high fives.
Right now.

Right now.
Time to play, ponder, pack.
Time for family, friends, fun.
Time to read, write, renew ...

Right now.
It's almost here.
It's just what I am in need of ...
Spring break is ... here.

{a gift} #sos

  I read this new book: Grit for Girls and Young Women: Why the Most Difficult Challenges are So Important -- a gift from a dear friend to my daughters. She had no idea what those words did to me. Tears filled my eyes, succumbed to all the emotions of this spring and summer and the year of 2020. Especially, a summer of the not-so-relaxing, let-it-all-go, think-about-nothing kind of summer. But a summer of hearing data, growing concerns, and waiting. waiting. waiting. to hear plans for returning to school this fall. I guess I didn't realize how much I was holding in.  My ten year old daughter, Madison, walked into the room. "This book from Karen is awesome. I can't wait to read it with you. They are full of words that you need to hear, but I guess I did too --"    I caught my breath and asked, "Can I get a hug?" "Why? What's wrong, Mommy?"

(p. 6) And she does this in an amazing way through sharing stories of her family, adoption, children living in hard places -- and doing their best  -- and healing. She shares how we can use research to understand how to
