Hello, I hope you’ve been enjoying the #lovemyself2020 Challenge I’ve been taking part in and promoting. Today I’d like to share a bit about taking some extra time to help yourself feel physically and mentally more prepared for your week. The weeks when I do this go much more smoothly for me.

Recently I had a friend make a post on social media about how she plans to avoid any trips to Target from now on because she always ends up buying extra stuff she doesn’t need and needless to say it’s bad for the budget.

I use the Walmart service often and it’s excellent in my area…if you remember to order the day before. Grocery service is not part of my affiliation, but online shopping is… #affiliate

Today I am thinking of aging, grief and blessings. My EYES have seen the physical and mental dings in the armor that happen to a person in the face of grief. My HANDS have helped the strongest man I know zip his sweatshirt and tie his shoes. My HEART has mourned a life taken too …
It is more important than ever that families take consistent small steps to be more environmentally conscious. As parents we have the responsibility to teach our children “Leave No Trace,” recycle, opt out of purchasing items that go in the trash after one use, save water, use sunscreen that doesn’t damage our oceans…the list goes …
