You may be so far away, But I’ll see you again someday I don’t need a shooting star, To know you love me, near or far Even with this Gypsy soul, I think of you and I am whole And if the road doth beckon me, Someday together we shall be 'Till I can see your eyes, Please, love, do not cry And with each passing day, The sooner I’ll be heading your way - Christopher Stitz by AislingH

The Rape Exception: Conceived in Rape "I was conceived in the mind of God, not the loins of men. He alone is my creator and He alone is my validator. I am not a mistake, but as my mother and many other mothers like her can attest, children are a blessing even in the case of rape.  Most of society cannot see His hand at work but He has taken the foolish things of this world to shame the wise." by celina.neo

For all you mamas working to get back in shape post-baby, please remember: Taking care of yourself is important, but sometimes the best way to take care of yourself is to accept that you are a different woman now. You're a mother, and even if you never get back in that teeny bikini, it's still worth it! by cleo

So tired of feeling inferior because of my weight.  People definitely treat you differently when you are not fat, even co-workers.  I have lost over 100 pounds three times, but have not ever been able to keep it off.  I don't know why so many people seem not to realize that I am the same person, regardless of my size.  I am 65 now and am tired of the struggle with my weight.  No more.  I am as I am. by Naghma

Back to School Rules! One of the most important things that teachers do the first week of school is set up the rules and expectations. It sets the tone for the entire year. It's also the time when teachers are using ice breakers to help students free comfortable and get to know one another. So why not have a fun and of course FREE activity to do both? I like to discuss the rules and expectations the first week of school but also break it up a bit with a fun ice breaker using my Back to School Causation Cards. This is a free activity where students are active moving around and having some fun - while reviewing rules. These cards are similar to the "I have... Who has..." cards and are a sure way to get your students enthusiastic for the upcoming school year! You can read more about them over at my blog post titled Have a Successful School Year with these School Rules (and download them there) or just head straight to Teachers Pay Teachers and download the Back to School Causation Cards free!

I so long to meet you sis! I am so tired of people saying "I know it was you and your back, or you work downtown Lansing. As if I can find you among ten thousand people. When I never knew your name. As a child I thought you must have died. As a young adult I thought I had a double, that lived close by. Our mother died when we were teens. She thought she had identical twins. The doctor was going to talk to her some more about it but never did. My certificate does not say who attended my birth. Sh by florence

.. This is my favorite quote. I am not a hypocrite. We all say ugly things, myself included. But that's why I love this quote so much. Because it reminds me to worry more about my soul & mind more than my outer appearance. Every woman wants to be beautiful. But these words ground me. Make sure your mind is beautiful. Make sure your words and even thoughts that only you know are always kind. That is true beauty. I am not perfect but i strive to be this kind of woman. by Lailah

My Mother in Law made this for a family dinner years ago, at first I wasn't going to try for I am not fond of mushrooms but am so glad I did, the flavor of this chicken is amazing. Now whenever we have company for dinner this is usually what I make. It's easy, inexpensive, foolproof and always a hit. by Soy
