Raising children in this day and age can certainly be challenging. My Mom, for one, was raised in a time when children were meant to be seen and not to be heard. Well-intentioned parents disciplined with a strong tongue and a leather strap. During that time, most parents were quick to point out any less-than-perfect behavior, but highly unlikely to note things done well. The result was a generation of wounded souls who questioned their abilities and their decisions. Their self-confidence has been compromised as a result.

Morning is my favorite time of day. I’m not a morning person, mind you. (But I’m MUCH more of a morning person than my Mom has ever been. I can promise you that!)
