Post image for Peace Begins With Me: A Mother’s Hope for Peace

I offer this hope for peace in remembrance of 9/11. May we never loose our hope for a more peaceful world and may our children know how to create peace in their world. Originally posted in August 2009. “If we are to create lasting peace we must start with the children.” ~Mahatma Gandhi   In [...]


Today I’m participating in the Ultimate Blog Swap. You’ll find me posting over at My Super-Charged Life about “Breaking Out of the 9 to 5 with Kids in Tow”, and I’m excited to welcome Jennifer from PJs Til Noon to …infinitely learning… *************************** My title may be a tad misleading.  I was on the tail [...]
