No Matter What, Love!


See what I wrote about my mother and grandmother below.


The only mistake we ever make, is when we forget to Love.

I choose to be love and see love in everyone.

Love is Who I AM and Why I came to be.

Love is my natural state and I allow my Love to flow.

No Matter What, Love!

Love those who forget to love.

Love the ones who judge and compare.

Love those who hurt others.

Love the ones who dare.

Love the rich and the poor.

Love the in between.

Love those who fear a lot.

And love those who seem really mean.

Everyone is healed with love.

Everyone who is lost can be found.

Everyone can wake up to love.

Everyone must find their own holy ground.

Love the ignorant and unconscious ones.

Love the ones who fear love too.

Love the ones who don’t want your love.

This is the fear of love shining through.

The ways to love matter not.

It is the love we share.

Give love with your heart and mind.

Love is allowing everyone to care.

Love is not special.

Love is what is true.

Love cannot be described or explained.

Love is simply allowing you to be you.

Live love by giving love.

Be happy and be free.

Allow your love to all you do.

Bring love to everyone you see.

Love can feel happy.

Love can feel sad.

Love can feel frustrated, too.

You know your Love by what you feel with everything you do.

Everyday grateful for how I was shown Love!

Things I learned from my Mother and maternal Grandmother:

Be independent, resourceful, creative, contributing and happy in life.

Take good care of your self, your home and your responsibilities.

Listen, observe and learn what is needed to be truly helpful.

Respectful of differences in everyone, children and adults.

Speak only when your words are meaningful.

Be present, positive, practical and praiseful.

Share what has teaching/learning value.

Deny no one the help that is needed.

Judge no one for their challenges.

Be kind and respectful to others.

Give and receive with gratitude.

As Parents they encouraged children from an early age:

Independence and Free Will 

Teamwork and Helpfulness.

Personal Responsibility

Learning by Experimenting

Choices and Consequences

Open Discussions about Life Values

Laughter and Playful Interaction

My Mother’s Parenting Philosophy:

"Give each child as much responsibility that they can handle and a little more to grow into.”

My Mother and Grandmother demonstrated daily:

A Profound Faith and Gratitude for Life.

They lived daily with a positive mind, encouraging words and helpful actions.

My grandmother lived on a Michigan farm with eight children during the depression.

My mother raised chickens with a 2 year old and new baby with my father away WWII.

Many more stories of who they are and how they showed me how to live, love and be happy.
