Happy Thanksgiving!

The very fact that you are reading this blog post tells me you are conscious about your parenting. I believe one of the noblest things we parents can do for this planet is to raise children who feel seen, known, and loved. I want to thank you from my heart for the thought and effort you put into raising the next generation. Think of all our collective young people. Yours, mine, and everyone’s shining their lights, bringing their unique gifts to life on our planet. 

That is a lot of light!

Today as you prepare for your Thanksgiving meal, I hope you will honor the gift that YOU are pouring yourself into the care and nurturing of the young people at your table today. Yes, you’re imperfect. Yes, your kids are, too. We all are. But your efforts to raise your kids well are a gift to all of us. Caring, connected people are the heart of caring, connected communities.

I see you. 

You are focused on unlocking your children’s potential. You are seeking out healthy parenting strategies. You are doing what you can to keep yourself in some balance. You bust your tail to support your kids in all the ways they need support. You work long days; you show up, you keep going. Your service to your children is a gift to us all.

Thank you. It matters. You are making a difference. 

Before you go about the rest of your day, let me ask…

What if you take a minute today to reach out to another parent and thank them for all they pour into their kids’ well-being? And what if we all invite our kids to reach out to the special adults in their lives and thank them for showing up?

It only takes 1 minute to be the light! So don’t forget to shine today (and everyday after).

"Every time I’ve stepped out of my self-imposed box, I’ve felt more alive, like I’m living the life I’m meant to live." I’ve been a “good girl” and responsible mother. I’ve lived plenty of my life following the rules. But when I look back over my years, the parts that...
