I traveled with my mom to Ohio today. She had a speaking engagement there, so I tagged along. I like traveling with her because I like to meet new people, and I also like hearing my mom speak about topics she feels passionate about. In some ways, it inspires me to keep talking about things I'm passionate about.
In this case, she was invited to speak about a book she wrote nearly 20 years ago called Restoring the Wounded Woman. The ladies who invited her are leaders who are orchestrating retreats focusing on counseling emotionally wounded women. We had a really good time with the lovely ladies of AWOM. I look forward to hearing about the amazing things that are going to happen on their retreats.

I've had this song in my head for the last few days. If you know me, you know I'm all about gratitude and learning to focus on the positives. This song is about that, and being grounded by the blessings in your life.
This song also makes me want to be a better mother, so I'll leave you with it.
*Warning: there IS a swear in the song...
