The Power of Love

As moms we focus on creating the perfect home for our children. We want to have perfect holidays for them to remember. We are afraid of saying or doing the one thing that will send them to therapy for years after they move out. But truly all they need is Love. They will get pass the not-so-new house and the meager Christmas’ and the times when you yelled no to them; if they are truly loved!

If You Give a Mom 20 Minutes to Exercise

If you give a mommy 20 minutes to exercise, the daughter with want to go with her.
When you tell her no she will beg and beg until the brother joins in. The brother will not only beg & beg but he’ll cling to your right leg and encourage the sister to grab the left one. You’ve just lost 2 minutes.

Traveling Across Country-Bus 52

Yesterday I had the privilege to hang out with an inspiring group of young people; Amy Rose, Gelb, Amy, Steve & Chris the team on Bus52.

They have created the awesome challenge of driving to 48 states in 52 weeks and collecting  inspiring examples of community interaction and innovation.  Saturday they came to The Generous Garden to interview the Director Bo Cable and be amazed by the work of volunteers. As the Volunteer Coordinator, I had communicated with over 50ppl who volunteered for that day; but because of the rain we ended with 22. I’m sure they were able to get a great story anyway.

I was inspired by THEIR story! It has been my 8yr DREAM to travel across country in an RV with my children! I decided last summer that I’m going to do it this summer, but after talking with Gelb I see that it’s going to take  A LOT of planning. He spent 2 years planning! I also realized how much I DON’T know. I would love to stay in contact with him and pick his brain when I need it.

It’s sooo totally cool to be young and free to come and go and to travel as you desire. As I stood talking with them I remember having a dream to travel across country even at the age of 16. At age 21 I went on a business trip with a colleague to Las Vegas and we decided to extend our trip. We drove to Mexico and traveled up the west coast, sleeping in the car, all the way to Los Angeles before flying home. What fun!

I pray that these 5 will have safe travels and find much success as they travel on their Bus 52 to inspire America. They have definitely inspired me and made me more determined to live my (other) dream!
